Politics is everywhere. We need to get with the times. Dancing around the truth only drives people other than the normies away from a platform.
Denying political discussion is your right. But you are riding a dinosaur.

Allowing unnmoderated political discussion on a technical forum is forum suicide. I've seen forums destroyed because of it.

Trying not to put too finer point on it..
But my question is, in the last few years, the political awareness of the average random, is that still the case?

Perhaps you should read my post again,
I would suggest more than once.

This is difficult for some - getting caught up in the shouting match is an easy trap.

You really have no idea what it is like to moderate political stuff without throwing the baby out with the bath water.
Moderation done properly is not easy.  I speak from my experience as a Mod on another forum.  Criticism against Mods is usually because (a) the complainants do not understand the issues (including the fact that they do not know all the details and that they are not entitled to that information) or (b) the Moderators are poorly suited to the role.  The latter does not apply here - and I am more than happy with the way it is.

This is an electronics forum, not face book. alternatively to do it your way we start banning people which won't go down well either apparently. Which one do you prefer?
Refer to my previous comment.

I'll phrase my response this way....

If you were to be a Mod here, the place would suffer.

I don't care, political discussions will be discouraged and moderated on this forum. If you don't like that then you can choose not to use this forum.
I've heard that Whirlpool is fun.

What failure?

Q.E.D. encapsulates the situation perfectly.

I read your post again, as suggested. It is inflammatory to say that I have no idea. We are both looking for the right way forward. PM if you want, since I hate having to mince my words. Otherwise, all good.

OK, I will explain it for you. You are acting as though we deny the mere existence of politics and to speak of it is suicide. Right under a post I wrote stating that some political discussion does happen and is fine but we can't have all out political debate. So again, re read my post!

None of you three gentlemen can seem to understand my point, going forward.

And that's OK. I need to articulate my opinion more betterer. Like one of two opposing muppets in a thread arguing opposing views, it seems unlikely that I can convey my point without receiving a volley of shit for it.

No worries.

Carry on.

You fail to understand, you don't get a say in how the forum is moderated.
As for your politics views, you just had to bring it up in a thread on STEM education in schools, just stop it. You are building yourself up to the point of doing it so often that we won't cut you any slack in the future.

Roger that.

Thanks for point that out.

I was thinking that I'm copping a lot more stick than I am dishing out, but there you go.

All good. Take care.

All good.
I am significantly less frequent than I used to be, but how has this troll hijacked the thread about trolls?
I'd rather a Google clue, link, or some theory than "do this" (generally)

I hope you shot mechatrommer, too? Wouldn't be fair otherwise.

If you don't mind we decide what is fair and we are the ones that get the reports. We know very well who is worse and is also a bit of a pain.

I don't mind. But I see what I see and I say what I say.

mechatrommer does not launch into several consecutive posts taking apart everything everyone said contradicting them with extreme ideology. Just trying to keep up with blueskull is a serious matter of effort. Much easier to permanently ban but we try to be fair all round. If you like it's a permanent ban for one and a temporary for the other! Make of it what you will.

Insulting by presumption with higher than though smugness when I did ask for some candor. Calling me a troll. Wow, man.

You got candor now you question everything. We have been open and honest about what we do and why but nothing keeps you happy. Don't like it, well what do you want us to do. How would you do it?

FFS Ed, stop it, just stop it. I'd ban you from this thread if I could, but the system doesn't allow that.

Extreme ?  :-//
Since when is defending your way of life and homeland extreme ideology ?

Why is it we judge a member by their flag ?
Recent events in history naturally promote xenophobia when the real history of most countries would make you think twice about them, their race and ideology.
Not one race is exempt of wrongdoing and their attempts to defend it and opinions only reflect on which side of the fence you sit. Mods included.

There is ALWAYS 2 sides to the story. Ask Solomon.

I'd rather there wasn't any fence lest we needn't choose a side.

But there unfortunately is. We're humans and can't help ourselves but take a side.
Discussion helps until those that enter it are offended by what the read on a screen.
