Dear Mods... Please create Trump sub-forum?

it is no secret that trump hating has become an all consuming passion for some forum members. fine. that is their right. but it has become the most tiresome refrain. wading through these threads to find something worth responding to is tedious. trump is an idiot. trump is a bully. trump eats kittens, blah blah blah.

would the mods please consider a sub forum specifically for trump-related threads?

thank you for your consideration.

LOL, I suggested that a few weeks ago and got slammed unmercifully. It's a good idea, however.

Looking at the number of boards here, and the redundant overlaps, I'd say it would be better to drop several, not create more.

Obama was attacked similarly and so was Bush II. If you really try to throw in all the hate into one sub-forum, the rest of the site will seem kinda barren.

Besides, he is active in a hundred areas. It would take a whole separate board, not forum to accommodate what the US President is involved in. Then add his tweets and other communications. It's too much.

The concept is to debate politics and guess who is top of the iceberg right now. Just have to deal with it. TDS now is what ODS was a few years ago. You have to skim the subject lines in the "new posts" search and see if you really want to delve in. The titles make it pretty clear whether anyone wants to debate or just trash.

How many Trump is awesome threads do you need in your life? And who is stopping you from creating them already?

Can't take a little criticism huh?

It's called The_Donald. Some members would find life better there.

There is not so much "Hate" dished out to trump as reaction to him and what he says and does. If we did not have almost daily material he provides then he would only face the typical dissent. Abnormal situations create abnormal response.

You want a Trump safe place where only praise for the combover clown is allowed?

Only cultists are the Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers the refer to half of their fellow Americans as "cultists" while worshiping a smooth talking neighborhood organizer as "the one we've been waiting for".

Agree. Aside from everything he says and does he’s probably a great guy!

In that case we damn sure need a forum for "But Hillary's emails!"

Probably the Basement would be better to contain all the garbage TDS victims spew continually. Probably include a sub-forum "Trump lied about <fill in your particular lunacy>"

Have seen some ridiculous stuff posted in these pages. This OP immediately leaps to my top 10!

I hear you, OP, but it could be worse. Yes, Nigel Tufnel has turned the TDS up to "11", but at least there are moderate voices and other balancing forces such as good moderation here. The other forums would be empty if all the Trump hate had to be directed to a sub forum:lol:

They were attacked but nothing like this. The frequency and veracity of the attacks on Trump are unparalleled to anything that I've seen in my lifetime. Yes, social media being more prominent today has something to do with it, and yes, living in an internet culture has something to do with it, and yes, Trump being the most braggadocios blowhard to ever hold the office also has something to do with it.

But there is nothing "similar" about it.
