Yes but different sites come with an entirely different group of people. I don’t want to go discuss every topic under the sun each with a different group of random strangers who happen to feel like talking about that subject at the moment.

I don’t participate in political threads anymore. 99% of the time I don’t even read the thread if it’s political. It’s not that hard to do. Just because I don’t want to participate, doesn’t mean I think others shouldn’t be allowed to. It’s that simple.

Once political/religious topics are banned, in comes heavy-handed censorship. A harmless conversation steers towards anything that hints politics or religion and in swoop the whiners, who call in the moderators (I’m telling mommy!) , and the thread gets closed or chopped up. Censorship sucks.
