I'd use my own discretion if I were you. Politics are a seriously touchy subject for loads of people, and there are people like me who prefer not to take sides at all...to stay out of it, which is why I don't even participate in political discussions here too often.

I think it can be good if there is a good ideological balance. If not, it can become a massacre.

Yes, politics is a very sensitive topic.

Politics can be a good idea for some people. However, certain people simply get on folk's bad side. Well, it might not be the person's fault. It's just the way people are. Anyway, politics isn't good for business - so I wouldn't advise a business - unless it's targeting a political base, to get into it.

Anyway, I'm not the person - generally speaking, who hates someone for political views - but a lot of people are.

Of course, you'd have to approach the subject the right way too, wouldn't you?

Well, even that isn't good enough for a lot of people!

:lol: very true unfortunately. You can be as sensitive as humanly possible and it still wouldn't take long for things to go south

Weboogle, you seem passionate about politics. I say, you should work on forums that you feel passionate about. Of course you're going to run into people that will have different opinions than yourself, but as long as people don't cause drama, a healthy debate is fine.
