    More discussion about Forum policy on politics

    Shutting down a discussion like this is just flat-out anti-intellectualism. If you refuse to even define your anti-idea policies in a way that makes sense, you're just begging for the abolition of real ideas.


    I'll be away from here, at least for a while.

    Re: I am beyond disappointed.

    Why is it so hard for people to understand this is a forum about large format photography. Not politics, religion, 35mm cameras, medium format cameras, bad jokes or what you ate for breakfast. Not that hard, really. Good luck with those "real idea" forums out there.

    +1. I'm in a horse-racing handicapping forum that allows politics, etc., and it's amazing how many decent, educational threads head south as soon as there is any mention of politics. etc. I would hope this forum would never change this rule.

    Why is it always called South? That, sir, is political as hell.
    Is there something wrong with the polar opposite of North?

    What the hell Paul? This is hardly a new policy.

    We better not lose Paul – his participation justifies a special concession, quick.

    I appreciate Paul's contributions on photography and would miss them. However, if he were to insistently create threads that agitate against long-standing rules, then make a "grand exit" because politics is off limits and he doesn't think it should be, I'd not be distraught over his departure. Special concessions aren't justified. For anyone.

    We had another member who couldn't abide the rules and was banned. I haven't heard of any photography-with-politics forum being started by Frank after that. I don't think anyone who isn't willing to establish their own venue can be taken seriously when attacking this one.
