I have been reading this board since I was 9 or 10 years old and I love it. I really do. But there are so many political threads! Yes, I know it is an election year but can't there be a different area for these kind of threads? Just asking.
Can the political threads be moved?

OP, how old are you now?

I think many gays perceive this election as, for them, probably the most important of the modern era. The Supreme Court almost certainly depends upon it, and so does the impetus behind gay rights in the legislative and executive branches. Hard, under those circumstances, to leave politics alone.

As a 9 year old how did you discover this site?
|by Anonymous||reply 6||09/04/2012|
The webmaster tried to move the political threads to another section a few years ago, but it didn't work. No one wanted to have to toggle back and forth between gossip and politics.
So deal with it OP. You can always scroll past the political posts.
Besides, the level of nastiness and craziness on the part of the GOP is far more intertesting that most of the other gossip here.

I think the OP was purposely trolling for more responses by saying they were reading this since they were 9 or 10 years old.
And regardless, political threads have always been a big part of this site. Yes back in the day there used to be a different section but we don't have those anymore.

OP are you male or female
And are you openly out? If so at what age did you come out?

OP - Part of being an adult is understanding politics, especially if you are gay or lesbian. So open your eyes and open your mind.

R11, I am male. I'm not officially out. Some people know but not my family.
R12, I understand that. I still say there are way too many political threads and I wish they were either in their own section or combined.

OP. You are young, but your stance on women's rights to choose are ridiculous, and will hopefully change as you mature.

I'm far more interested in the political threads than anything else. What kind of threads do you like? I say we shove those off to some DL ghetto instead so you don't have to ruin your beautiful mind among the grown-ups.

All I said was the political threads have taken over. It makes sense to combine them. Nothing wrong with that.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||09/04/2012|
Eh I agree with the OP
|by Anonymous||reply 26||09/04/2012|
We go through this every four years and the answer has always been the same: no. No, they're not being moved (we tried that) and no, they are not being lumped together in one thread.
So, the simple answer is no.

Thank you R26

[quote]It makes sense to combine them.
No it doesn't. While the polling threads can be combined (and usually are, since the Poll Troll is quite polite), the rest of the topics are widely divergent. That's as silly as saying that it makes sense to combine, e.g., all movie threads or all actor threads.
[quote]Nothing wrong with that.
Unless you're looking for coherent conversation, in which case combining the threads would be a huge mistake.
Face it; it's not going to happen.

Soooo...is THIS a political thread? If not, where should we lump it?
|by Anonymous||reply 32||09/04/2012|
It's very important to have the political threads because nobody who posts at DL knows who to vote for. It's just too, too confusing.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||09/04/2012|
Yeah, OP, let's discuss something important like 'Twilight' or Whether Anderson came out the right way. Jeez.

How many people have buried their girthy cocks in your tight little asshole? And learn the proper spelling of condensed.
And also, learn the appropriate grammatical use of the word. I should also add that you should learn to love licking hairy balls, and last but not least, read up more on both history & politics. Just might save your life someday.

It's important to have hundreds of reminders every day to vote for Obama and not vote for Romney. Without those reminders, I'd end up voting for Eisenhower or Harding.
Four years ago EVERY thread at DL ended up with messages warning us not to vote for Palin. No doubt she would be Vice President right now if we didn't have all those important warnings.

I'm here for the political threads OP. How could you be on DL for 11 years and not understand their importance?

Can the OP be given a brain transplant, and maybe an interst in the world going on around them, and a sense of what is really important please?

Only a moron gets their political news from a gay gossip board. Yes, this place has always had some degree of political discussion, but it used to be actual discussion and not idiots just reposting shit from other sites. This place was never a news aggregator; it was a discussion forum where our individual ideas were debated not this boring ass regurgitation of talking points. If I wanted to read the articles or the laughable polls the political trolls post, I'd be on the sites where they originated.

The election has been over for more than a week and this place is still inundated with political threads. The Petreaus thing is spawning even more political threads. Dont you bitches get tired of discussing this shit? Im beginning to think some of you masturbate to political threads!

OP, instead of complaining you ought to be glad of freewheeling, intelligent (usually) political discussion here. I take it you are not old enough to realize that politics and money are the two main things that make the world go around and affect YOUR life directly; if anything, you should be asking for more political discussion and greater solidarity against the forces of greed and selfishness that would undermine our freedom to participate in these discussions, among other things.
