I would imagine someone kept bringing up politics, probably should just chill out with that for a bit
If I was the owner I would tell everyone to gtfo, we're here to chill and relax not talk about politics and piss each other off

Politics should be banned from the CR forums for at least a month. I would love to open GD and not see the first 10 topics about fucking politics that are all saying the same shit.


I see no need to stop at a month - they should just open a "politics" subsection for the forums and move all that stuff out of GD permanently, it's like a pestilence upon the forums and quarantine is probably the best way to handle it.

So, I spend time in this anime lounge.

Recently, people have been getting kicked out left and right.

It seems that most of those being kicked out are those with politically right views or those who support Trump.

Don't get me wrong, it's been a noisy place for quite a while. Insults have been tossed around from both sides. But, from what I'm seeing, one stance has been targeted by the facility for removal, while the others are not.

I'm not passing judgement, or anything, just taking notes. Lots of notes.

But, what does everyone else think? Should a business be booting people out based on political stances?


Only if they are causing a scene in my opinion just like everything else. If you can't be civil about something then yes, they are well within their rights to kick people out. I'm curious on how they know someone's political stance unless they are openly talking about it in the first place or are they actually causing a scene?

Part of running a business like a "lounge" is to establish a setting or mood that is comfortable for your patrons. Any goddamn idiot knows that politics and religion are not considered topics of polite conversation and so if they persist in stirring shit up they should be kicked out on that basis alone.


But the problem is it's only the "rights" being kicked. Anyone with a left view is left alone and the right may just be sharing their honest opinion that happens to be right winged.


This is just more examples of hypocritical lefts, who claim to stand against discrimination and intolerance, discriminating against and being intolerant of anyone who doesn't agree with them.

Essentially.

I keep reporting it as bigotry, and it keeps getting marked as no longer reported.

I probably wouldn't keep reporting it, if a moderator would actually acknowledge it, or SOMETHING. But considering all I know is that I'm getting ignored, I'll keep reporting.

Screen-shotting every time, of course.

AND, I don't care that it is a bigoted thread. I really give no shits. BUT, I do care about the biased nature with which things are handled in these forums, and on this subject in general, these days.

Basically, you can be as bigoted as you want, while literally accusing just about anyone who disagrees with you of being a bigot, as long as it is to white straight men.

I know, I know 'white tears' the girl said. Nope, no fucking tears, just a fuck ton of face-palming.

The left is extremely tolerant! They are loving and caring if you are also a leftist. If you are not you are literally Hitler and it is ok to treat them like shit because they are intolerant, racist, bigots that deserve it.

Deleted a few posts for naming or quoting a post that named a pirate site.

Due to a forum bug, the deletions will result in a few subsequent posts appearing out of order. Sorry.
