So you're on SI, and you can read- the thread says "View from the Center and LEFT". If you are right wing, or vote republican, you probably should not post here. If you post on PFP, predominantly, I won't waste time monitoring you- I'll just ban you. It's easier. I don't want to waste a lot of time playing thread mamma. So don't whine about your bans. It's obvious who should post here- center (not your imaginary right-wing center, but the real center) and left wingers. There are threads where the two sides mix, and endlessly insult each other. If you want that kind of thread, there are plenty to choose from. Go ahead, share your "truth" (you know you think you alone have found it) with people who aren't interested, and who dislike you, but don't do it here.
For everyone else, civil discussion and thoughtful analysis are welcome. Posts are carefully monitored to preserve a constructive atmosphere. For the folks from the center, or center left- any article is fine to post here. I just don't want endless discussions on anything- because they are boring. But hey- I'll give you lots of latitude on that. There's no harm in taking a really long discussion, that appears to be played out, to private though, is there? If you think there is, private message me and we'll work it out. If you can't send me a private message I've already figured you as a winger, and you shouldn't post here. End of story. No whinging. It's non-negotiable. And no, I don't rethink bans. It's a waste of time. Once you are gone, you are gone for good. Usually I've forgotten all about you, and having your best buddy remind me of your existence isn't going to get you off the ban list. So don't get banned here- just leave us alone. You can do it. You CAN find another place to bug those liberals you hate.
