Since race relations has its own section, I would like to suggest this for abortion politics. People know that subject tends to get sensitive, similar to discussing race issues. So instead of having to move threads to other areas, why not just keep them all in this one place, even if they go south. I also strongly suggest some guidelines for the section, such as "highly recommending" that each member who posts an OP SPECIFY what they intend for that thread: * open but clean discussion (similar rules as CDZ) absolutely no bashing no negative personal comments etc. * limited to prolife friendly comments only (or posts will be removed) * limited to prochoice friendly comments only (or posts will be removed) * open/free speech *bashing included* anything goes (same as flaming, taunting, badlands) If posters of threads have a preference such as one of the above, this would have to be stated at the top of their OP. Anyone who disagrees with the rule set by an OP, can address it in a separate thread and state their own rule at the top of their OP. If this is contained in one section, I think that would help. And I will gladly volunteer to help moderate such a section. I think people really need their free speech on this one, so whatever it takes I'm willing to help. What do you think?
