Why not post threads on the subject of USA politics on the USA forums?
And European politics in the EU forums etc...

It would seem a coherent way to go about things....

Well done Selenitehug

The Forums as we knew it has been taken over by massive political posts . Dare to disagree with posters and you get abuse and threats of reporting you.

It's a shame as it was fun on here ,now up to the run up of the US elections and conspiracy theorists there is no point in posting just to get attacked . It's making a mockery of a "dating site" as we know it sigh

Yes they should be there for everyone to read.
Maybe there is someone who thinks: Hey they handled this case in that way, might be a good idea to do it like that overhere to.
And if that person tries to convince other people in her area, maybe some things will change for the better.

Selenite it is this way every election time. It actually use to be a lot worse. uh oh I have learned to read and if not interested head to different thread. I use to go by headlines, learned quickly they could be deceiving. It will calm down eventually somewhat. To be honest I am interested in world news I just don't get it from Connecting Singleslaugh

I hear you but ....

Surely people who are interesting in finding out how other countries/states manage their internal politics can choose to go to their forums to read about it?

If the internal politics of a place have no global impact I'm not understanding how it fits into 'covering everthing' ...
It's of interest sure ... but it would be like having all the political debates of Andorra taking a prominent place in the international forums when it has nothing to do with anyone and won't impact anyonr apart the citizens of Andorra. Just 1 news flash to announce the outcome would be enough for the international communities to find out what's going on ...

Yes, it broadens the mind.. sort of. For me tight borders does not necessitate the anti-intellectualism of "you're not from around these parts, why don't you mind your own business"

People who want their mind broadened do have the easy choice to go read the info in the forums of the countries they're interested in ...

I hear what you're saying though about the 'why don't you mind your own business' slant ... but doesn't that apply whichever forums you're on?

events in any country come under the umbrella of international affairs, that is the way most people read it.
So it is a legitimate area for events in any country and that is indeed how its used.

I agree with Tomcatt as international forum covers everything globally. But for you whiners the choice is simple. Don't participate in forums that you don't have any interest in.
It's so simple, but instead, most of you troll those thread topics and complain about them. I personally think if the political threads were removed you would just find other thread topics to b*tch & complain about. It's seems to be in the nature of certain people to do so.
To a certain extent CS gives people the right to create threads about things their interested in, just as people have the right (to a certain extent) to comment on threads that interest them.
Instead of creating waves why don't you whiners turn your ire toward something more productive and let people write about what interest them. handshake

Pot calling kettle black springs to mind! Since you are whinning, in a rather unpleasant manner I should, about a thread being created to discuss a topic that does appear to be of interest to various peoole.

Up until your post though, everyone had shared their views without insulting anyone. So far you appear to be the only one dishing out 'ire'. The question asks itself in your own words. Is dishing out ire really productive?

The irony of calling this thread 'creating waves' as opposed threads with polital contents is not lost on me laugh

Because there is a Current Events and Political sub category.

I don't post politics in 'poetry' or 'cooking' sub categories

This has to be the problem. People select the appropriate category for their subject but ultimately everything seems to end up in the International Forum.

It's down to CS to segregate the different topics to avoid all the conflicts.

That's how it used to be in the past ... may be abiut 10 years ago ... there was a political section, poetry section, healthy living section etc... for each country or block of countries ...

Yes they can, but also if you read something interesting that can be used in your city, state or country, you can share the thought with others and discuss about it. Maybe it comes in the right place in the right time.

I don't think the problem is internal politics being posted on a global forum.

I don't even think disagreement, or obnoxious opinions are a problem.

It's challenging, but that's how we learn.

Rather than divide according to country, or topic, perhaps it would be better to divide them by tone.

I think there should be a category for those who wish to deliberately inflame, rather than discuss, or debate. It would save no end of wear and tear on our scrolling down finger.

thumbs up thanks for your contribution Jac!

@ your last paragraph... I think that used to apply to most of the threads in the 'political and world affairs' section in the 'olden days of CS' laugh

In debate, you are probably right Pedro.. but many people mistake debate with verbal abuse ... it still serves its purpose on a dating site... because it shows you what someone will probably be like when they get pissed off with you ...
