    I am the lucky individual who, for the most part, moved the threads around in the board. I can't imagine why I would think yet another thread on healthcare reform belongs in the healthcare subforum, but there you have it.

    A trend I have noticed ... and for you literalists not each and every instance -- in general ...
    is that the majority of rightwingnut threads get moved to conspiracy theories while the majority of leftwingnut threads get moved to teh Flame Zone, Lame Zone, or Trash. Only because we don't have a "Outright Stupid Partisan Blather" subforum.

    Anyone want to take a stab at why this trend might exist?

    It is not our place to question the inner workings of the Gunny's mind.

    maybe the trend is happening because people would like to see you hanging around here more than you have been lately? :)

    Probably why I asked a question concerning the inner workings of YOURS?:lol:

    How long have you been here, Rav? Yet you STILL post almost everything in Current Events and it gets moved. You also post ridiculously partisan BS.

    I know you're not THAT dumb. Matter of fact, you have proven on occasion to be rather astute. So what's the point? You just need some attention, or what?

    :confused: Maybe I misread your question, I thought you were asking us to guess why you moved right wing nonsense to the conspiracy theories and left wing nonsense to the flame or lame zone.

    btw, I do not post almost everything in current events and I actually don't notice if my threads get moved or not. I click on active topics and don't pay attention to which forum a thread is in.

    I'm not referring to people who try and sometimes get it wrong. There are even times when a thread can fit into multiple forums. That isn't the issue at all. The topic of why a majority of posters think current events is the most important subforum simply because it appears first on a linear list is a separate, yet just as annoying issue.

    I'm just curious about the mindsets I mentioned in the OP. The extremes of both sides being equally full of shit; yet, fall into categories on opposite sides of the spectrum.

    One could argue that the extremists on the right at least take the time and effort to build a baseless theory while the extremists on the left just kinda take a crap on the page with mindless rhetoric.
