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.
Do not make yourself the protagonist, or it will seem everyone else is the antagonist. I learned that the hard way.
