I suggest this and similar threads that are started go straight to the slag heap or just delete them. For me, this site offers a wonderful escape to many beautiful places and thoughts and anything political ruins that quickly.
Countdown to people complaining that I am a tyrannical despot who does not let people speak their own opinions on the site, or that I am some sort of left-wing liberal nutjob who will blindly follow anybody with a D in front of their name off some precipice.
The problem is that you take people who otherwise would get along well and get them arguing over politics or religion and you splinter a community for no real good reason.
As long as it stays civil and people know when to drop things, I generally don't have a problem. But I'd be upset if people developed hard feelings over some stupid topic that really is pointless to argue about on this stupid site.
