FAO mods/admins

Seen as political/religion talk is banned in general chat, how about making a politic and religion forum like seen on many other forums?

i find it interesting to debate, and think this forum could benefit from one? means general chat wouldnt get blogged up with it and we could at least discuss it?

    Will be hard to monitor mate. Too many differing views and opinions and the reason we lock the posts is not because of the views and opinions but the personal slanging matches and racism that tend to get thrown in.

    There are other forums on the net for this sort of chat.

    im not a MOD here but my view is theres no need for it as kitty has pointed out will just cause friction between members plus MT is BBing

    there 1000000000's of forums were you could talk about it

    We don't have one because everyone gets heated and we are united here in a common hobby/sport. Why introduce problems? Do you think it would be any less stress for us if we had a dedicated section?

    Plenty of places around the net for that sort of thing - it will never be part of MT. Sorry.

    All i'm saying is that, you'll never have a political free forum, so why not keep it to one part of the forum, where if you dont want to read it, you dont have to, it wont affect you

    it works on most other forums i frequent which have nothing to do with politics, but theyve accepted that it will always be there so they make a forum for it,

    just thought itd be interesting thats all, cos i love a good debate over religion or politics, always really interesting

    Because it will inevitably spill over into the main sections of the forum. Eg. Joe Bloggs has a religious/political disagreement with John Smith the the 'Religion and Politics' forum and they get into a heated debate/argument and it spills over into the General forum or the trianing or D&N forums...etc...etc.

    As said, MT is about that - muscle talk, not PT or RT, but we come and unite around a common interest. Not to mention the extra hassle and work a whole differnent section in the forums would be!

    Go to the BBC website they have some very good religion and politics forums mate.

    There are plenty of forums solely devoted to politics/philosophy if you want to debate it. You'll also find more clued-up people by going to such a forum. I mean you wouldn't go on a philosophy forum to ask about drop sets and HIIT would you

    if you want politics, join a politics forum, i for one cant be bothered to wade through politic ill feelings that may then spill into the other forums and cause rifts between members who share a common interest, BBing and fitness.
    keep the harmony, if you want to be a politician feel free to be one, just not here please

    A forum dedicated to arguments and name calling?

    Don't think that sounds too great tbh.

    Debates quite often lead to arguments and name calling!

    You would end up in an argument in such a forum... I would bet good money on that.

    You certainly have the persistance to debate in a politics forum LOL...... trust us all hear, it's been contemplated and dismissed as that simply is not the remit of this forum, it is that simple. No need to keep asking.

    why not use bodybuilding.com then and allow us to keep the hard earned harmony on this forum? then at least we can have productive training, diet, competition, steroid discussion over argument provoking threads

    True - there's always a lesser segment of the population that can't refrain from name-calling.



    Agree with everyone else - politics and religion are extremely divisive topics that cause rifts more quickly than they can be sealed. On a site like this, you'd have members asking each other to step outside...!!!
