Topic tags/keywords: lumberjocks is a nice site except tip

Okay, This is it. I’ve HAD IT WITH PEOPLE CHATTING ABOUT POLITICS ON THIS SITE.
This is a woodworking website and if you guys really wanna chat about this junk, go onto a political talk forum.
Now, I know that there are people that focus on woodworking, and thats good.
People like DAN, who just waste their lives around politics, this RUINS LUMBERJOCKS.
Its basically like spam.
Just because it says “off topic content, click to see the post”, doesn’t mean that that its just politics in it?
I usually click on the off topic contents, because usually theres a little talk, Like trip planning, what to do, or tips on ANYTHING even deaths http://lumberjocks.com/topics/39971 .
Look, a lot of people have gotten sick of it. like b2rtch
Now, if the moderators of this site would put a political side… Then all the people Like DAN can chat there, and none of us will be affected. I know this has been mentioned before, but this idea cannot be forgotten.
Now, although theres gonna be a lot of disagreeing, and a some agreeing, lets keep this post, nice and not childish. So, if you wanna post below agreeing or disagreeing, please follow my small rules:
1. No swearing
2. No acting like 2yearolds.
3. No spamming it….
I know I am not a moderator and this post is probably gonna be forgotten after today, but no one is blocked on this page, and everyone can talk freely on this page.

Summary? Guys guys guys, Please, stop chatting about political junk. If you wanna chat about it, please do it on another site.
This is annoying and messes up Lumberjocks.

Thank you.

Alex.

I hate politics, and almost never look at “off topic” because of it.

I don’t know what’s more annoying, the posts about politics or the posts complaining about the posts about politics. So don’t act like the 2 year old you’re asking others not to be.. An adult can look at a post, decide they don’t agree with it an move on. There’s a reason Windows was oriented around clicks of the mouse. Click the back button or click on something else.

I agree and just like Alex said give politics it’s own catagory so that those clicking on “off topic content” aren’t tricked into clicking on something they care nothing about nor care to read hence politics.

Ken, quote “If you dont like them, which I dont either, dont read it. I dont….

Ken, I know we don’t live in a perfect world but things can be made to accommodate such as knowing what we are clicking on eh? I don’t read them but I would perfer not clicking on them either, not being labeled you know not what you’re clicking on.

Jeff, read my post.

I find this type of a thread a hell of a lot more productive and interesting then something you can’t change like politics. So whos really acting like a 2 year old the one throwing the insults are the one that’s trying to make a change and being professional about it hmmm maybe mirror perhaps?

I’m starting to think that maybe woodworking just isn’t that interesting to woodworkers. Right now, this is comment #15 after 40 minutes on a Sunday AM in the US. The first woodworking project with 15 comments was posted 15 hours ago, and that project has some awesome photos of stuff burning!
