    The CDZ forum has low activity.

    I wanted to make threads there on a couple of occasions, but the rules state that it has to relate to government policies, candidates, current news, and events only.

    Simple solution: Allow more topic variety.

    Are you sure those rules are for CDZ. I looked and could not find those restrictions.

    Okay, I found it. I was looking in CKs guidelines, not under the title of Clean Debate Zone. I'm pretty sure that there are already threads there that do not quite adhere to those categories.

    It's mostly troll threads. Few rate any serious discussion any more than the usual fare in the Current Events, Politics, and Conspiracy Forums. Too many astro-turfers peddling the same 'talking points' tripe from the same old ideological Hives to make it a separate forum.

    What sort of topics were you thinking of? We have given some latitude. The main thing is to avoid trolling, flamebait and soapbox protection.

    Sociology and philosophy.

    Economics and political sciences seem like fair game in CDZ.

    You could post on such topics - I've seen similar in CDZ.

    If that is the case, then the description is redundant and confusing.

    It would be better if it did not say ONLY in all caps.
