This is a primarily a football site, threads on other topics are just meant to provide opportunity for light hearted discussion.

Politics is not a topic that is conducive to light hearted discussion. It was worth a trial but really the discussion was too robust IMO for what this place is meant to be - an online community of like-minded SA footy followers.

Ultimately the sideshow shouldn't detract from the main game. I think the moderators made the right call.

If you want to talk politics BC, find a forum that's about politics.

So in other words you are saying that the political discussion has ultimately been a negative experience for you.

Therefore as I said, the moderators have made the right call.

Still plenty of other places to discuss things - feel free to pop into the SA in the AFL forum and give your thoughts on this weeks game. Smile

I agree, HTWWW, that was the original hope for it, but any reading of the thread shows it got personal and was also hijacked for a time by posters later banned and posters who aren't always what they claim to be.

The Mods thought it didn't help the standards the site is trying to uphold, hence the decision.

Perhaps it could be reinstated in the future with very strict rules to keep to the issue, with no personal references at all, moderated by a neutral Mod?

As in how you continuously claimed to be correct, then were eventually proven 100% incorrect?


So your response to a thread being deleted for having too many personal comments is to make another personal comment. Rolling Eyes

Bit like the response to the ex-pope's comment about Islam being a violent religion. The Muslims killed a few people in protest. Like that disproved the point the pope was making.

Problem with politics is that it often is a matter of interpretation of statistics. Just because you are a "glass half full" person it doesn't mean that the "glass half empty" person is either stupid or 100% wrong.
Probably 70% of voters are rusted on to one of the major parties and will never change allegiance. These are the ones who will blindy accuse the other side of being wrong / corrupt / stupid/ incompetent etc etc regardless of the issue or the performance of their side. (Bit like footy really except politics doesnt have an umpire we can all blame Very Happy ).
Which is why most politics threads end up being closed. They start out as debate and discussion and end up as diametrically opposed people trying to drown out the opposition by shouting from their soap box.

Absolutely!

And also well said in your post above UncleHuey!!

Politics always brings out the worst in people - and one side of the argument says they aren't getting personal - but the other side takes it as personal and vice-versa. Never ending head-banging.

Stopped in at Bensons Radiology at Salisbury at 8 am for an x-ray, came out and the battery in my car was as flat as a ??? Smile

A short walk to Super Cheap Auto on Salisbury Highway and $129 later i was back on the road. Not a good way to start the week. Sad

When you hear of a young person going suddenly like that it certainly gives a reminder to live every day like it's your last, because you just never know what could happen.

Thanks all.

I'll try and put this as I would if we were face to face talking about it.

He was never a picture of health, in fact, he has been morbidly obese since his early teens and despite this he lived a pretty "normal" life. I'd say most of the family knew it would one day be to his detriment. Very sad to go so young.

Origin Energy botching up my electricity bill again - this time they've tried to pull off an estimate on my off peak energy usage - even though the peak reading was an actual reading, and I have gas hot water so therefore my off peak meter is sitting at 0 (it got replaced a couple of months ago, and reading of the old meter was marked as an actual read on the bill too).

In a world of pain this morning. Slept at some very awkward angles last night after my little daughter decided to take up most of the bed, and then BANG my back went out this morning taking the rubbish out.

Walking like an 80 year old. pale
