So the thought of an OT place for things like political discussion is nice in theory, but having yet another thread in there get locked up I kind of have to wonder: is this worth doing? do we need tighter rules / penalties? Not absolving myself here, but it seems like every thread about American politics in particular (or things that factor along those lines, like gun control), is total deja vu and play out exactly the same way. And it's pretty clear some people are in there not to have a real discussion but just to incite the masses. I'm not sure any exit polling would say, "Yea, that was fun, lots of great points, and I learned a lot." I'm also fine just ignoring these, but thought it made sense to ask -- How could we have like the most extremely polarizing thread and still have it play out it ... like a debate team or something that's rational and purposeful even if ultimately subjective. I mean otherwise, like, the Trump thread is closed now, can someone just create a new Trump thread? Or what's the statute of limitations, etc.? Seems like it's just a matter of time.
