As your co-moderators, Steve Licata and I have decided to delete the original sticky thread with our policy on politics on the Porch.
It was dated, and had been misunderstood as establishing a thread where political pronouncements could be made.
Due to the fact that political dispute by both right and left (in this country, at least) has become so virulent, uncivil, one-way, and often irrational, we don't want to have it take place here. There is a forum for it, and we believe that's where it belongs.
Please don't bring it here. Neither of us is given to locking or deleting threads, but we'll head off ones that appear to be going political.
Thanks for helping make the Porch a pleasant place to relax and BS.
