After all the years that I have visited this site, this is the first time that I remember seeing the board this lively regarding politics. I always thought that it was an understood(maybe I read things wrong) rule that the type of political debate transpiring below was 'out of topic' in this type of forum.
Do you guys really believe that anything will get settled? Or that any views will get sufficiently represented? Aren't there political boards for this type of discussion?
Maybe create a separate sub-forum for full-on political debate?
