I don't think it would help. If someone wants news they can always go to news websites.

forums will tend to do this when enough of "general" is polluted with it

Moved this over to site support, since it's a site type question.

People post news here regardless and its annoying to see in GD.
If there was a section for it and mods could move it to there that would be amazing.
Gets It.

I agree that this is something that should be done. Political/News-powered topics should have their own area to be posted on.
This is mostly because General Discussion is one of the forums that are shown on the front page of Crunchyroll at all times. I don't think anyone who visits CR wants to see a "politically driven" thread on the front page. Not in the "I'm getting triggered" mentality, but in the "Oh crap, I have to deal with this even when I'm about to watch anime?" mentality. Some people just want to come to Crunchyroll and watch stuff, that's it.

pretty sure that's what extended discussion was for, and they removed that

so...

but i'd def like GD to not be littered with political crap. to me that's not "general", that's a pretty specific type of thread

actually like the stuff in the chit chat section... those seem very general discussion , and just light and fun. which is what general discussion should be imo
