I'm not accord with the way threads are closed in the politics forum by The Godess( I usually only come there, so I don't know how it is going on in the other parts). It started with the Anarchy sticky, where she showed clearly how she disliked Anarchy and so here true earth of on-objectivity was showen. Then she closed a couple of new Anarchy threads, which there were allready a lot so that was okay. But then she closed 'Would you like to live in an Anarchistic World?', which allready lived for a while and where there was a discussion going on at the moment. So someone else started a thread about the misusing of the mod functions, but 'cuz it wasn't politics'(while mods are kinda the leaders/policemen off the forum, and so exally it is), the thread was also closed. And then(or maybe before it) I pm'ed The Godess for it, but she never replied and allready sayed something like 'I don't give a shit what a member with less then 20 post pm me', even tho there will be a serious reason if he does.
It is true there is seldom a good discussion going on, but that is for al threads, not only the Anarchy ones. But extreme racist threads or offensive osts or tolerated, while I think hurt a lot off persons. I've the feeling the mods just protect the popular, a-lot-posting members.
