Mikey:

Or was I kicked out?  It was there one minute and gone the next.

Deliberately turned off would be my guess.  When politics in the world gets heated and it starts "vigorous debates" in the forum, the powers that be get upset and shut it down if too many go tattle on each other.  Lanny only lets it be around so he can keep the politics out of all of the other sports boards.

That's what I figured, but wasn't sure.

The Chief:

The conversations in their weren't worth having anymore, in my opinion.

Sheep calling other sheep, "sheep."  A lot of "go team."  And mostly folks with a simple, binary understanding of politics and government.

Sadly true. But nothing different than any other political message board. The scariest part is that the loudest voices on a given topic are usually the most uneducated on the topic, not always but as a rule.

Mick Hogger:

I haven't really seen that many arguments lately except for the same 2 that just repeat the same insults over and over at each other. This one is pretty mild compared to the others I read but if people are going to report on each other because of hurt feelings, that's just weak.

I was gone for quite awhile, but when the board was there I noticed that Pharm was no longer listed as a mod, and I hadn't seen him post, did he leave?

Augustus:

We're already realizing the effects of the FCC's decision on Net Neutrality. It's a brave new world out there; or, at least it better be. ;)

It was self-moderated but some people can't do that.

Honestly, I left when Lanny shut it down the first time and had only recently came back and posted at all, so I didn't know what was going on.

I know for fact that it was closed down the first 100 days because of how pathetic the "self moderation" was.


DeltaBoy:

Sad 😢

The politics forum is at times among the busiest of all HV. Oh' well, not my site, just another poster who goes to the politics forum first nearly every time.....

No, Lanny removed all Politics MODS and simply listed himself.  It was self-moderated, barring any tattle tales, it would have lived long and prosper.  There were two people who kept going back and forth with personal insults at one another like Kindergartners arguing over a box of crayons.  I'm almost 99.99% that was the issue.

Well, I hadn't been here awhile, and I hadn't seen Fatty since I did come back, so I know it wasn't me this time LOL

Pretty sure Fatty got the last one before this one canned.  It was absent after it came back and probably a good reason it lasted this long.

hogcards:

Just as well.  More insults than actual political talk.

majestic:

It always runs more smoothly when the AL fan has been banned.

Dumb ole famrboy:

Everyone knew the terms and conditions going in. Those whose actions caused the board to be shut down had to act with the intent and purpose of accomplishing that goal. They win everyone else loses.

Mick Hogger:

It would be nice if those people could just have the politics forum made invisible to them and let everyone else be. Everyone else was telling them to cool it.

If I owned a board , I certainly wouldn't have a politics forum that was "self moderated" , no way that could work with tempers high the way they are right now.

At the risk of getting political, I'd be shocked if the complainer, aka whiney female dog, is a conservative type.

Yeah, who goes complaining on a dang forum that their feelings were hurt and it was too political.  Geeze, talk about living a sheltered life.  Sadly there are people in this world that would do just a thing because they emotionally were hurt over something in the politics forum.

riccoar:

Well, last time just before Trump's inauguration, that deep six was because of Fatty.  This time it was more than likely the sniping between Porkrinds and the other poster.  Name escapes me.  I notice PR's account is gone.

Mick Hogger:

It's there if I look at it on my ignore list and shows his posts, etc, but you're right that it's not listed on the member search. But it's not black like some banned people's names are.   The other one is active and posting.

alohawg:

So, by deduction can we assume the deleted account was the whiney female dog that gave us all the middle finger by getting politics shut down on the way out?
If So, not surprised in the least.

Hardcore Hoggy:

In semi related news I just got banned from a big political message board for being from Arkansas.

That is exactly what the moderator told me when he banned me. Permanent.

The written reason was "Arkansas posters not welcome" lots of posters from other states posting there.

Isn't it 50?

Not that the forum is worth viewing, but to answer the question, I'm fairly certain it is 50 posts.
