if this apparent limitation on what forums are or are not created in here, has primarily been determined on that Flow binder spat of before, then it is a sad decision made without substance.
i explain why (briefly but honestly and i will name names).
the flow issue whether started in the equipment or poli thread, was suggested to relocate to the other.... it didn't spill over, there was an active request for it to be moved. as such, the claim that things couldn't be 'contained' is invalid.
the personalities involved, HP on the one side, an opinionated swine as he would readily admit, has the inclination and will to respond in no uncertain terms to anyone suggesting a deviation to his POV. and why not.
on the other side, you had Shay (if i recall correctly), someone who is not a regular poli contributor and thus perhaps not entirely accustomed to the extent nor passsion to which people like HP would labour their POV; but that is not to say she is incapable of expressing herself in no uncertain terms (just examine her turn of phrase to anyone suggesting Joe sabotaged sb.com before leaving)
add to this the complexities provided by Shay defending the POV of her buddy (cannae recall his name) who themselves is capable of the most arrogant and therefore profoundly antagonistic language....
with all this, shit was gonna hit the fan. this came about NOT coz of the existance of a poli forum, but due to the tetchiness and i guess intolerance of the people involved, the majority of whom NEVER posted in the poli section!!!!! if this incident is the reason for poli aversion, i would suggest the prohibition of an bindings forum also.... if consistency has any worth.
now that is the reality of the situation (as i see it) and it is unreasonable. to this site's loss. i suggest the decision makers in this (ie the mods) seem to lack the inclination to give this issue a reasonable degree of consideration.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
