My Reason for /POL/
#0 Wed Jan 15 14:18:56 PST 2020
I know some of you may not like the idea of /pol/ but this board will be different. What sets this board apart from most of the other pol boards is the obscurity of this site. Since this site is not well known and the current users are, generally, mature people, so the discussions will be higher in quality. Politics and current events can be interesting and humorous. I think having a neutral politics discussion board will be a good thing.

There's no such things as neutral politics.

What I meant was that the discussion board takes no side. This isn't a right, left, or anything in between discussion board where opposing or unwanted political beliefs are ostracized.

Isn't the goal of all politics to achieve a state where one is secure from ostracism but can successfully ostracize the other?

I am aware of the possibility that one political belief may get so popular that it becomes the de facto board culture and may cause the other users with different political beliefs from posting for fear of being excluded or ridiculed. But, one reason why this won't happen here is that the board has very little users. The few users who do come here are mature people that can discuss with one another in a gentlemanly manner. I will make sure that when I do advertise the site I will target sites with a mature user base.

I really hope that you're right about that and it stays that way. Politics and religion bring out the worst in people.

Maybe it was unintentional, but the thread title and OP uses /pol/ instead of /p/. When advertising, it would probably be best to avoid calling this place /pol/ since that will color other's expectations and attract a disproportionate amount of a particular sort of poster.

Apparently you forgot about the vociferous incels.

Yep, that's the reason why I changed it to /p/.

Good choice with the change.
