    I'm very worn out over the rash of politically sensitive threads of late. Please people, read the BYC rules on it and just say no (oh yeah I went there)!

    There are probably millions (yep!) of other places on the internet already set up to discuss these types of topics.

    When in doubt just remember, do you think what you are posting will be appropriate for all age groups? And (here's the kicker) do you think that everyone else can also reply to your thread in the appropriate timber without drawing it into that decidedly un-kid/family friendly direction?

    Thanks and happy posting!

    Thank you for those wise words.

    Believe it or not, we do research what is going on and we are usually prepared.

    We also predict the outcome of many of the threads we end up closing very accurately.

    Those of the staff online discuss the threads that we are watching as they are going on. "What about that comment?", "Did you see this one?" "Should we close it now, or give another warning?" , "Oh look, it is getting better, worse, etc"

    But we do give everyone a chance to be civil.

    If we all stuck to the rules, it would all be good. Or at the very least, think one more time before hitting the "submit' button.
