We are positively deluged with news 24/7. I come here to discuss kink and for no other reason. I honestly do not care what your political opinions are. When people post political diatribes in the lobby I find it extremely rude. I find it incredible that Max Fisch posters are unable to find the easily accessible News and Politics Forum.

Backing up what Soapy said moderation here is thin to nonexistent. We have to clean up after ourselves. If people start littering the lobby with political posts the quality of this board will take a nose dive (again) and I for one will be far less eager to participate.

Cheers,

kbb

I agree with you 100% on this

To be honest this isn't accidental nor uncorrectable. I think the few violators who do this aren't getting the desired attention and response they seek in the(small) politics section so they bleed over into the rest of max hoping for some type of reaction.

In the future if and when it happens again we should ignore it and not even respond with a warning, Etc. Just let the post die in a vacuum so to speak.

It would be awesome if politics were removed from here completely.....

Thanks drummer. I agree with your hypothesis. I also believe these posts denote attention seeking behavior. It would be nice to abandon politics on this board altogether and yes i agree such posts should be ignored. Unfortunately, human beings being what they are, these posts end up pushing buttons and some are unable to resist responding to them. Thus political posts end up hanging like fly catchers in the lobby waiting to ensnare people who are unable to exercise self restraint. I agree it is more of a strategy than an accident. I will refrain from saying anything further so as not to pour gasoline on an already raging fire. grin

Ohh jeez lol the post I have seen were mostly accidental , a few , only a few , sat on the line where politics intersects BDSM.

Also, people from the lobby posting in the news and politics section, regarding the lobby , can be equally annoying ! LoL

So , whatever lol

I hope your post here makes a difference !

Cheers ...

I "know" the person who did this. I believe it was an accident.

People did give him advice on how to clean up,but he chose not to do it.

That being said this thread is keeping the embers burning in my opinion. The best thing to do is to start new on topic threads and let that thread get pushed down.

Completely agree, if I want to read political opinion I'll visit CNN, MSNBC or Fox.

If I want kink, I want to visit a political bullshit free MF.

I also agree that anyone who posts that crap in the lobby should be completely ignored.

I agree with you, kbb.

I was very disappointed and very turned off to see someone slagging on Hillary (even if She might possibly deserve it).

There is an area specifically designated area for politics. Use it.

Oh, it was a "mistake"? But you made no effort to click on the "edit" button to remove it? Please.

Honestly, every time I see any hint of misogyny here, I ask Myself (1) why are these guys here pursuing FemDom? and (2) why am I here?

Hi Mistress Tissa:

I've been trying to let this post die so as not to stir the pot unnecessarily but I have to say you summed up my feelings on this subject pretty much exactly.

Best

kbb
