    "Obama".

    Politics is being over-run by bank and forth jab threads about this dude, and it's getting a little tired.

    Either that, or could all the Obama threads be merged into one?

    Merging them into one thread probably would create the biggest clusterf*ck this board has ever seen.

    I have been considering the same thing as far as a subforum goes though.

    Even if it's just temporary, and then when the election is over they can go into archives or something.

    Having 5 or 6 threads bacially talking about the same damn thing is ridiculous, especially for just one individual person. Everyone wants to make a thread that one-ups the other threads.

    EDIT: Ok, I actually counted 12 threads specifically about Obama on just the front page of threads.

    Do one on Elections, that covers it.

    Considering most of the talk in "Politics" is about the current election cycle, having one for "Elections" would just be six in one, half a dozen in the other.

    But to have that many threads about Obama, where they ultimately end up all going in the same direction of "I love him" - "I hate him", is ridiculous.

    I'd even be saying the same thing for Ron Paul threads.

    I suppose there is a point, could you please get to it?

    Got no problem with that, how about, Obama eats the world?

    oh, so you think Ron Paul and Obama bin laden are basically the same?

    Um, I thought it was pretty damn obvious from the first word, no?

    I proposed a new sub-forum...

    Then I immediately started the thread body with "Obama"...

    Then I said "Politics is being over-run by bank and forth jab threads about this dude, and it's getting a little tired." ...

    Have you caught up yet, or should I write a short story outlining my points for you?

    Wow. Wasn't it you that just stated I was a little bit nasty in the way I post?
