really...many of us here agree that punditry helped the US get in the mess it's in now. not that I think any of us should feel guilty for having tried to have a discussion about some seriously fucked up shit, but do we want to keep this shit going on theshizz??



i for one would like to see theshizz become more about music and video games than a place for airing political beliefs. many of us got sucked into it, and i think that's it no longer healthy anymore at this point.

Merge them into 1 thread (including this one...).

The discussion is inevitable, so locking the remaining thread means that discussion will spill into other threads. Problem gets solved on your end when you stop looking at it.

i've already made the decision myself to stop looking at it on theshizz. there are plenty of available sources for political info and discussion elsewhere. i agree with your concern that locking all threads would possibly cause spillover. however, my main thrust was that the morenergy users here put towards political discussion here, the less attention is given to good music, and we've already seen that even before the results of thelection. 



not only that, there are people, myself included, who've spent a lot of time discussing politics that could've been spent making more good music.

The whole election and outlook of our coming days has stirred a lot people, even me, a "slacker Gen X-er", lol.  I'm not going to post in the other thread anymore.  Peace to everyone, and you have forgotten an essential Poll option:  Vin Fiz.

shit man, i fucked up. i'm sorry. vin fiz is just always a poll option in our hearts i guess. i think if anyone is THAAAaat passionate about the way things are, then getting involved in your own community would do a lot more good than shizz punditry I'd imagine. that's my plan at least. we've got an election coming up next year in Germany, and the far right are united and energized while the left is fractured as fuck, just like in the US

Merge them all into one. Having a single catch-all shitpit keeps all that garbage out of other threads (ideally)

No need to lock, can't they just be set to 'sink' where the people who want to can keep posting but they don't get bumped? Another board I'm on has that

But seriously, all the top threads bring politics is crappy. Let's nerd out, fuck this awful outside world

Pretty sure there is a politics mega thread out there already.
I know because it used to be really easy to ignore political discussions here as they only existed in that thread.
Maybe if we can just go back to using that I would start checking back here more often.
(Probably not though)

All we need is 3-5 more religious threads and at least 2 more abortion threads!














Then The Shizz will be dead...

I said months ago the 2016 election thread was a curse upon the shizz and I meant it.
