    Why not just make the Chamber the US Politics forum?

    Then why not make an announcement saying US politics is no longer allowed in the Tavern and move subsequent thread there?

    Because that would kill the tavern.

    Decentralization and topic splitting kills both the forum and the topic. What we need is centralization, bringing more topics under one roof. That way we get more diversity and greater participation, as well as avoiding the creation of small-forum cliques.

    I agree. And a problem with US politics is how politicized so many issues are.

    OTOH, I do believe giving US politics it's own forum would be fine if several other forums were merged together. While the Fat Cat Vested-Interest Cadre Small-Forum Cliques would resist, IMO they could co-exist without US political drek drowning them.

    You do realize how ridiculous this looks, right?

    If US politics gets shoved to the star Chamber, so should bronysectuality.

    Sorry. The accepted phrase is "Fat Cat Vested-Interest Elitist Cadre Small-Forum Clique." Leave out "Elitist" and you just make a mockery of the whole thing.

    Who knew that a thread going on 10 years ago would lead to the downward spiral to today.

    Since we are low on moderators, and all of us seem to be busy right now, it'll take a while.

    There's still couple of questions to be deciphered.
