    Yes, because political debates aren't specifically prohibited, it must be
    OK. Or so I've been told. I'm waiting until someone claims it's their first amendment right to post political commentary wherever they want.

    The first amendment is a limit on the federal government's power as it pertains to your speech. It has nothing to do with what you are allowed to write on someone's BBS or "wherever you want".

    The first amendment also prohibits the US *government* from making laws that restrict the freedom of speech. There's no such guarantee in a shopping
    mall, someone's house, private university or a BBS.

    I'm sure non-Americans are getting sick of American politics, it'd be nice
    to make some politics-free zones, like maybe, General echoes?

    I think FSXNet already serves the purpose of being politically free, to a point. Which is the reason why I think it is less interesting.

    There are some dudes here who are very pushy with their views and it can get tirying at times, but I personally prefer that to networks where content that may generate strong opinated responses is not allowed. If there is no marging to post objectionable content there is no margin for meaningful discussion.

    I consider this specially true because what may generate strong offended responses changes with the times, often very quickly, and thus the rules are in a constant flux and in the end of the day it is some lone operator deciding which opinions are political and which aren't.

    I mean, Vim vs Emacs is not political but it will get people to rip each other's heads, yet we don't ban IT debates in most subs here.

    you're the only one complaining about it and you're the dickshit who's moving posts to other echos.

    you think everything belongs in the debate echo.

    it's ironic for poindexter to post about people being sick of posts.
    that guy just talks about how he has old computers and gets ethernet through his wall power outlets. that's literally all he's talked about for the past 5+ years.

    Nope... The constitution is in place to restrict the Federal government... The only amendment that forced something to be done was the 14th... It was put in place during reconstruction so that the Democrats wouldn't try to get back at the Black Slaves for being free...
