Its Mark's forum and his policies apply.
Its an inclusive forum for everyone as far as I'm aware, there are many parts of the forum that I don't bother with, there are many posts I don't read.
I had though about asking Mark about starting a politics topic to isolate it from general chat, clearly politics would still also appear in national and local News
. I would have thought it would have been proposed by some who thought the subject less interesting.
Love to know how extremist viewpoints are measured, the first post in this thread is certainly not extreme, its enshrined in law and is calling for status quo.
I would love to see a list of what you consider suitable topics, is it just subjects that you like, I'd bet Big Brother or Coronation Street aren't on your favourite subjects list either.
