• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

As you may have heard, PoliticalForum.com has crashed. I won't reveal which member of that site I was so as not to reveal too much about my political leanings, but I am curious as to whether anyone I know from that forum has migrated here. For demographic purposes, I am male, 20 years old and from Oregon, USA. I will avoid the more contentious debates and stick mainly to political science and the off-topic forum. Greetings!

Thanks for the welcome. You'd think I was royalty (LOL).

How did it crash? I read there and I noticed it was down.

That's the strangest part of it. The person who runs the site hasn't even contacted phpbb, the web service that operates it. Moreover, there is no mention of the crash on Google searches except the error message on the site itself. I am guessing that the person in charge just ran out of funds and couldn't deal with a major network failure (possibly caused by a virus, though I have no proof of that). Somehow, I'd like to bring JavaBlack, The12thMan and a number of others to this site if they have been stranded.

I should warn everyone NOT to go to the error page of politicalforum.com. I got the "winfixer" virus from doing so, and I suspect that the same virus made the site crash. Thank you very much.
