Should politics even be allowed on the forums? A lot of what's wrong with the game is that there's a far left side and a far right side. These cause arguments that spiral out of hand and then have to be locked. Also, not everybody on the forums is from the U.Ss, so not everyone would be interested in these topics. Making the forum intolerant of political speech will allow the community to heal bit by bit, as well as attract more players to the game.

Well if we disallowed politics on the forum, then we'd just have even more people talking about it in game which would be even worse IMO. Honestly I don't even pay attention to those posts cause I just don't want to be involved, so it won't really effect me either way.

You're joking right?

"Should politics even be allowed on the forums"
And you put it in meta

"A lot of what's wrong with the game is that there's a far left side and a far right side."
The game or politics?

"These cause arguments that spiral out of hand and then have to be locked. "
I havent seen any of them being locked...and the latest one to spiral out of hand has been taken care of.

"Also, not everybody on the forums is from the U.Ss, so not everyone would be interested in these topics."
Then ignore them like I ignore ship design topics.

"Making the forum intolerant of political speech will allow the community to heal bit by bit,"
Because this forum has such a history of being peaceful without bringing politics into it.

"as well as attract more players to the game."
Surely, you are joking.

As long as the discourse remains civil, it is allowed. If you prefer that it not be allowed, your are cordially invited to ignore the offending topic.

Such are the wonders of off-topic.

Kale, censorship has never shown to be good to solve any issue. It just looks good from the outside, but all the issues just boil underneath and explode at some point.

Discussion is a much better way to move forward, as long as their is no personal attacks during that I see no issue with it.

When a minority gets to control what is or is not allowable to speak about, simply by deciding to be offended or not, then we have a problem.

Kale's ideas offend me. Let's ban Kale :)
