Or those like me that are right leaning for social isses, and far right leaning for fiscal issues?  Subunits/rooms depending on how far one leans          ;)

I think we know where you'd fit.  ;)
I smell something burning, hope it's just my brains.
They're only dropping peppermints and daisy-chains

Like I said, you don't have to join either. But I'd go with the one you'd feel more comfortable in considering your compatriots.

I feel about equally comfortable in either group.

Bt,

What if you had the main 3DHS forum here, and two separate subforums (subfora?) attached to 3DHS as well. One for right leaning folks and one for left leaning folks. People who joined one could not view the other. In fact, we might need to set up an approval system so no obvious person from the right joins the left and vice versa.

Within these subforums the individual may vent their frustrations. So Professor can post that "JS is a real jack ass" without worry. Also, extremely partisan articles could be posted, even debated, but without the intent of flaming.

It is just a thought and obviously no one would be obligated to join either one.

Almighty Hero Member JS.....

I would be crying out, "Tear  DOWN  THAT wall" in a nano second.

Knute given the opportunity to contribute to the forum remains true to form and fails.

To the rest of you , your increased efforts at elevating the debate are noticed and appreciated.

I am sure you are so oblivious that you dont notice, but there is no debate in here any more. It has become a rightwing masturbatorium. There are only two libs left on  a regular basis and they will soon tire of your delusions.

There may be only two people who are liberal on a consistent basis, but there are more people with liberal leanings on some issues.  There are probably more conservatives, but I don't see that as a bad thing, it's more people that I may have a debate with.  I'd feel the same way if there were more liberals than conservatives.  Generally I'm in the middle on a lot of issues.  I certainly don't see this forum as a rightwing masturbatorium.

I haven't noticed you contributing anything other than random and occasional sniping.  You're as bad, if not worse, than the most rabid right winger in here.  I don't doubt that you are intelligent and capable of a debate if you want to, but I haven't noticed you wanting to debate.  If there is no debate in here, then aren't you part of the problem and not the solution?  If you want a debate, all you have to do is start one.  This generally isn't done with name calling or whatever nefarious scheme you might devise.

As to the way BT runs this forum, I can only say that I have a lot of respect for him.  Would I do some things differently?  Probably.  It's easy to be an armchair quarterback, it's probably as easy to be an armchair forum admin.  I don't believe that he's paid for the time that he puts into this forum, as far as maintenance and time spent on the actual technical end of things.  That he does this for free, so that we can all enjoy this place, says a lot about the person he is.  That all that you can do is snipe and bitch, rather than contribute, says a lot about you too.

One for right leaning folks and one for left leaning folks.

What about for those like me - right leaning for fiscal issues and left leaning for social / rights issues?

Like I said, you don't have to join either. But I'd go with the one you'd feel more comfortable in considering your compatriots.

This missed a major point, namely that debating others with differing viewpoits IS more beneficial than those of similar minds, IMHO.

Thank you for the compliment. That is exactly what I am trying to do. Be worse than any including Rich and the only RW lunatic friend I still can tolerate.

Then you have no one but yourself to blame for this:


there is no debate in here any more


You know how it works. Sowing then reaping. That you choose to be part of the problem is no one's fault but yours.
