    I visit this site everyday looking for something new happening in the world of Mason. Lately it seems that the main thread being posted on is the Politics board Lives thread. I have read through enough pages to know that it has nothing to do with the basketball team, Mason sports, or really the school in general. I have no problem with people bashing each others political views all day but can it be moved over to the "Off Topic" section so it's not the first thing I see when looking for new stories about our beloved Mason?
    I figured I'd set up a vote and see what the general thought is on this topic since most of us aren't posting in that thread.

    Option 3: Lock it and delete it.

    This was my thread originally and morphed into what it is today. At the very least, move it to Off Topic or stick to the policy of not having politics on a basketball thread when the politics section was removed in the first place.

    Started as a solid debate regarding Scalia School of Law that turned into the same BS political rhetoric that spans from the far left to the far right. The debate appears to have devolved into childish name calling and posting articles that prove some outlandish point. If a topic is not involving Mason or basketball, lets move it or kill it.

    So, let's move this topic or kill it...

    Seriously, though, that thread started great, and if I recall correctly, was derailed by a moronic comment right off the bat, so I haven't been back to it since. I hate those "debates" as much as the rest of you, but, honestly it is those of you that have complained about that thread in every other thread and started new threads about that thread that have irritated me way more than anyone on that thread. At least they have kept it to that thread that I can easily ignore. When it is sprinkled in with the basketball threads, I get stuck seeing it while trying to read about Mason hoops.

    As I started this new thread I realized I was complaining about a non-mason related thread while also starting a new one. I wanted to see what everyone's thoughts were in a poll and will be happy to delete it in a couple days.

    Wouldn't it be easier to move this to Off Topic thread. Problem solved.

    The problem isn't with liberals ignoring fox news, it's with conservatives watching/believe it! BOOM!!!

    I vote we turn the Moving the Politics Thread into the new politics thread. Jolly - what do you think about gay muslims who have their green card owning guns? ;)

    Do you think the Mason Basketball players and staff are Trump or Clinton supporters? ;)

    I have moved both threads to the Off Topic forum. A link will remain for one day from the original location.
