Motion: that the thread http://bescapevelocity.runboard.com/t8438 be moved to NewsFlash.

We have a forum dedicated to "Newsy stuff and politics", but RedQ decided to post this thread in MindX.

quote:


Is Corbynization the Democratic Party’s Future?

I found this article very disturbing, and I'm not Jewish. The Right has warned of anti-Semitism on the Left, and the Left has denied it. But in this article, it can clearly be seen that a wave of anti-Semitism is on the way.



Does that sound political to you? If so, then we should move it to the NewsFlash section. I need a second, and then we can start voting. The entire reason we have a NewsFlash section is to keep the partisan politics out of MindX, which is a place that we should be using to discuss emerging trends in science and technology.

I'm not advocating for censorship, I'm advocating for keeping the forum organized as intended.

Lucid, Do you believe that anti-Semitism is a political topic in America?

If this is going to devolve into sophistry and semantic games, I recommend that someone second Lucid's motion and we get this over with.

Seriously, I am giving finals tomorrow and don't need any extra stress. Just vote and get it over with!

Red, you can still start a thread with a motion to officially redefine the subforums. I recommend that you do that instead of bickering over whether an issue that people consider sensitive can properly be called "political".

Spike, You are using your authority to try to bend the forum to your will. MindX is not just about science, but a 'dog-pile' for thoughts that reach beyond partisan politics.

How many MindX threads should I list that have partisan politics implications, but that no one has complained about? Why just mine?

I am using the power of my mind to bend the forum to my will. Anyone, including non moderator members, can do that. I can not call for a second. That does not mean that I cannot urge someone else to.

Percentage wise, James and Rich get nagged as much as you do. Everyone, including me, puts threads in the wrong section. Like I said before, re-shelving books is not a political exercise.

I have no desire to be super strict about the rules, so I don't make an issue of it unless it involves divisive, partisan politics. Extropia's thread doesn't bother me because it is not whining about a specific party, but is rather discussing the concept of capitalism. The argument could be made that Extropia's thread would fit better in NewsFlash and should be moved, and if you want to make that argument then you're welcome to do so.

Divisive, partisan politics taint an otherwise science and technology related forum. It turns people off who might be interested in emerging trends in science and technology, but do not want to engage in a forum full of arguing about partisan politics. NewsFlash serves to quarantine the partisan bickering in one place, where it can be ignored if desired.

All you had to do is leave a post saying, "In 24 hours I will move this thread to NewsFlash." It is your job, not mine.

Personally, I think her thread was about innovation, since she was essentially arguing for a different economic system, but that is just my opinion. Like I keep telling you, I do not decide these things.

I am going to bail on this thread. I need to get ready for work tomorrow, and it is taking up too much mental energy.

PLEASE...someone second it!

I was going to second this but its funnier to let Red and spike continue to drive each other up the wall with a petty squabble.

Keep going ladies.
