• 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.

It may be a joke topic elsewhere in the forum, but I think it should be considered:

Proposal:

The creator of the thread, at the time of thread creation, can select up to three other forum members who are uninvited to said thread and cannot post there.



I honestly think this could help discussions on this forum not get so bogged down by the less intelligent members of our forum.

Terrible, terrible, terrible idea. Everyone, no matter how border-line retarded, has the right to express his opinion.

This isn't the US government, rights do not necessarily apply here.

I would be against anything along these lines. We have open participation here by our registered members, and it should be a matter for DP Staff to decide when someone is no longer able to participate in a given thread by the rules of the forum.

What you are arguing for would end up abused.

This would go horribly, terribly wrong.

So your own threads will be like your own personal safe place.

Agreed. However, since this is a debate forum, I believe that dealing with idiots is necessary. Besides, it will develop your patience & tolerance skills :lol:
