i propose that political discussions not be banned.
@rob is this what you meant?

Yes, welcome.
 
@heather OK, well, what benefit does it bring to the room to not ban political discussions?
 
Given our recent discussion about PC-ness, I find Bernardo's ban amusing.
 
@DavidZ, discussion about a topic that interests people.
as long as it doesn't become rude or insulting, I don't think its a problem.
 
The thing is, it regularly does become rude or insulting.

I wouldn't mind the banning of political discussions except I think it's been taken to an extreme recently.
All mentions of anything political have been deleted and nipped in the bud. I think that's the decisively wrong approach, personally.
 
@heather Look at what happened: SNL sketch gets posted, next thing is "the left is politically insane". This is absolutely typical of what a mention of politics quickly devolves into, and it does no benefit to anyone to wait until that happens.
