Exclamation Concerning Israel Discussions

Would a ban on the Discussions concerning Israel be a good thing?

The thing is just, it keeps returning in every political discussion, and I am very much anoyed by it (I'm sure I'm not the only one)

I thought I would be able to make it less by moving the topics, but it doesn't seem to work quite and it takes me a lot of time.

People said before to ban *all* political/religious threads, but that's like throwing away the baby with the bathing water

So here I ask: Ban the Israel topic or not?

Yes! Let's ban the freedom of speech! Perfect idea!
In case you didn't notice: <cynical>

I'd vote for no.
Of people are annoyed by it:
Don't read it! Stay clear of it!

I can guarantee that it is the one subject that won't end on this forum...

I dunno, I think this is more of an El Muerte decision imho. I don't think you can just ban an entire subject from a message board without admin approval.

Yes. But that also means deleting all the Israel libeling posts.

Of course that means we'll have to delete the American slandering posts as well...(although America slandering seems to be a hobby of nearly everyone here.)

I voted no. There's no reason to ban any topic. As HS said: don't want - don't read!

This topic is unique, because not only does it focus on a large percentage of the members patriotism, but also because they live there.

I would normaly agree with that oracle, but the thing is that it somehow becomes a topic of every political oriented thread...

I know it can be quite irritating, but if you think it is, you just shouldn't read it.

Of course...you want me to actually use my own HD space and upload them to the MBN???

Actually, this is a pretty sweet set of Vbulliten smiley's, maybe El Muerte would consider adopting them at the MBN?

We've got the following rule:
  • No stuff that might offend people (like religious stuff)

you may talk about everything you want, but flame wars are forbidden. Flame wars will be closed and if needed removed from the forum.
If you don't like it, though luck, flame somewhere else.
