I understand there has to be content generated to keep users accessing the site. clearly that should be a goal.
What about the low quality threads popping up all day that are just QQ for or against the american government? When does that stop being discussion, and starts to become a forum for people to just slam around their political positions. The level of irrational, paranoid bullshit really degrades the quality of the site. It's like Off topic is the daily news spin, just reposting crap from around the net to pollute that section of the site.
Sure, it is off topic, but come on now. How many Obama threads do you need in a day before you get to call it intentionally abusing an open forum in order to sell your own political theories? The whole point is to argue to make yourself rite, wouldn't that mean the whole point of making these threads is to change peoples opinions, which would kind of be like using the site for political propaganda?
