I can tell you from personal experience that this is all true...except for the yoga thing. I was not aware that they do that in midwest ;)

I know Jim has passed away and nobody can make anyone not post apolitical humor - but I think the thread is better quality without the politics. Lots of that already going on in the political threads anyway.

Maybe Ron can appoint a new moderator in the spirit of Jim?

I had a lot of chats with Jim about allowing in some political humor. I am the kind of person who can laugh at himself and find opposing humor funny - if they really are funny and not just in the eye of the beholder.

My litmus test was this, if I switch the punchline, will it still work? If yes, then that joke should not be allowed because it is just a jab at the other camp in the guise of humor. But if the humor really is funny in the context of the politics, then I was for it. For example, the jokes about Communism vs Capitalism are ok, but the one about Obama and Trump in a barber shop is not because you can switch their roles without affecting the joke.

Fundamentally Jim was for it, but he felt that it would need to be introduced slowly to make the rules clear and not let things get out of hand. He thought that there is too much anger out there and if he loosens the rules, people will find loopholes to take a swing at each other.

I think he was right. Although I didn't like it at first, I think it is nice to have place where people can tell funnies and use humor without the divisive politics.

I agree totally. You would be a good moderator to follow Jim.

Me too. This was a favorite thread until he ruined it with repressive partisan rules.

<I guess I can unblock him now.>
