Mods don't seem to care too much even tho it is really killing the forum at this point. Send in the reports, it's pretty much one user who is the main culprit so enough reports would warrant a response eventually I would assume.

People can easily post about anything they want here. There is also a search feature- so if someone doesn't want to sift through politics they can EASILY search for something and likely find it. Also, its not hard to make a new topic and go from there.

That user admitted here to owning and employing people in a political data business, so that may explain it.

The autistic vote is considered important enough for somebody to pay somebody to try and influence us. Cool

Not sure what this user's motives are.

I know I argued in one of these anti-Trump topics before, and this user said "my staff found this research", and I was like, "staff"?, and the user said "yeah, I own a political research company and employ people".

[moderating]

In an election year, a lot of the news is political.

Personal attacks are not OK, no matter how strongly you disagree with the poster's support of the other guy/gal.

Of course no personal attacks but what about spamming? I could make 15 threads a day too fwiw, especially easy if I don't have to post anything except a link but I actually like the back and forth and the debate.

Posting many, many similarly themed topics in a short time is a problem.

It can be hard sometimes to determine where the edges of "similarly themed" lie. For example, a post about a political candidate's raging narcissism and another post about the ethics of party members with divergent views neverthless supporting that candidate may be seen as similar (they are both about the candidate) or different (one is focused on the candidate, the other on the party).

It's fine to have political news in News & Current Events and reasonable to object to spamming huge numbers of topics in a short time. It's not OK to object to topics on the basis of which candidate they support.

Actually you CAN make this up ... and you did. Normally my policy is to ignore trolls like Jacoby and LoveNotHate and simply report them, but in view of the failure of the moderator to take action after more than a week, I'm simply going to have to call them out on their public lies.

Amazing the lengths that Trump supporters will go to deceive in order to suppress opposition. Even open lying by them here is now acceptable.
