The political threads are already starting to clutter up the page, and it's only going to get worse. Eventually, the mods will have to create a separate R+P forum, and that's when it'll really become a serious pain.
But it's not my forum, so all I can do is watch CG be slowly dragged into the R+P mud just like it happened with GG.
While I appreciate your concerns, I seriously doubt the head honchos here at CG will let anything about this site be dragged into the mud. The ability to discuss R&P issues here is provisional, based upon us behaving ourselves. For the most part we have and hopefully will.
As far as the forum front page being cluttered with R&P threads: as I write there are 47 threads in the Off-Topic forum. Of these there are 11 that are R&P in nature (not counting this one). Surely 11 threads out of 47 two days after a hotly contested presidential election doesn't seem unreasonable does it?
As always, if you see something in a post that you believe violates the code of conduct, email or PM one of the mods. You can also (and probably should) hit the exclamation mark in the upper right corner of each post. That reports the post to a moderator.
And Jeff Jones and I are not the same. He has more hair. Or so I'm told.
