    Poll: Ban political & religious threads at RedsZone?

    I think it's an important matter and maybe - depending on the poll result - it will make it easier for GIK, Boss-Hogg and the moderators to find a reasonable decision.

    No. Ban the people that make the threads unbearable.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    Ignore flamers and don't ban anyone.

    I really don't think we need yet another thread started on this topic. We already have a multi-page thread on it with everyones opinion clearly stated. This is being addressed and a solution to the problem will be announced that will be fair.

    CQ,

    this poll is just meant to give a direct impression how many people here are in favour of banning the political threads. Just vote Yes or No - no additional arguments needed. I find this important to make a final decision ... why should something be taken away from us posters if for example about 75 % are in favour of it?

    In my opinion it's not easy to get an impression how the majority feels from the already 135 responses long other thread.

    You're jumping to conclusions. Relax. Again, this is being addressed, and was being addressed before "that thread" was started, and the over-all fair solution will be announced soon enough.

    no. i think something that would be beneficial would be able to ban people from a side of the board, not the entire board.

    Yes it is.

    I don't have a problem with you running this poll because I understand why you did, but I can assure you that whatever decision we reach will have nothing to do with the outcome of this poll.

    Im assuming you can ban people from viewing the NBC then? I've seen other boards(phb, which is probably the best free board around) that dont have that feature, although it would be very useful, IMO.

    Yes; that is one of the proposals we are discussing as punishment.

    Sounds like a fair proposal to me.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    With all due respect, that's not what the issue is here. The issue is the personal attacks made within these threads.
