    The Fresh and Civil Politics Thread

    So this is going to be my desperate attempt to have something resembling a pleasant political thread on here because I'm very tired of lots of people skirting the line in the Trump thread, myself included! It's time to hold all of us to a higher standard.

    This is our new thread on politics (not just Trump, because other stuff happens there too, yay). This is also going to be a strongly policed thread for personal attacks. Anything, I repeat, anything, said in this thread should either be about politics, or a respectful engagement of someone else's political take. Personal attacks will not slide in this thread as they did in the one before it, even the most "harmless" of them. If you think you shouldn't say it, don't say it, because I'm gonna drop infractions until everyone figures out what discourse looks like.

    Keep it topical. Disagree with views, not people. Have fun?

    Can we just make it a political thread in general instead of just making it about the US?

    Well if we're talking about worldwide politics, I would like to say that Trump calling himself stable is probably about as meaningful as the current Conservative UK government describing themselves as stable.

    I like the title of this thread way better than the last one. Way less nauseating for some reason.

    There's a Chrome Extension called "Make Trump's Tweets Eight Again" that turns all of his Tweets into this:

    But to be understood, arguments are still allowed, no? Constructive, non personal, view based arguments. In an attempt for good conversation and learning.

    That laptop needs a tossing for failing you, Sayer. You should not tolerate such a mockery.

    Also, that was only going to be in one specific thread. Not in every thread.

    We probably shouldn't have said anything and just let Sayer get banned...
