This isn't my first point of call - YJCC mods have locked a number of threads that have 'gone Senate' and I thank them for that... but the number of anti- / pro-American threads is getting tiresome beyond belief. According to the US media, America are the good guys. According to the media of the rest of the world, this couldn't be farther from the truth. JCers opinions are pretty much divided in the same way. Any discussion on the general subject is either an exchange of propagandist slogans (not something that belongs on a 'social' board, imo) or a semi-intelligent discussion with some evidence & reasoning to back up opinion (something that belongs in the senate). Given that the same thing happens to each of these threads: people exchange slogans from their favourite news show for a few pages; then one or two people try to introduce things like evidence to refute the simplistic propaganda (of either 'side') that's being thrown around; then a mod locks & redirects to the Senate... why not just cut out the process completely & say 'no political threads' in YJCC?
