All political talk is now banned

Recommended Posts

(And just in case it is pointed out by somebody: Yes, I have brought up politics in chat myself, on one occasion, and proudly declared I'd vote for Hillary Clinton. I'd like to point out that this came about because a "Latinos for Trump" spokesperson stated that without Trump's famous Wall™ there's be a taco truck on every corner. Hillary's response was "I think that sounds delicious". It was not so much a declaration of love for Hillary as it was about my love of tacos. Mmmm, tacos. See also: humor. This was a while ago, and with each day passing more and more of us become fed up with this whole mess. At this point even jokes and tacos have a sour taste if they're connected with the election, so let's just not.)

What about the politics of Diversity SMP itself? Can we question Turbo's right to dictate his will upon us as free citizens of Diversity?

Turbo is just an admin. There are four admins, who rule this kingdom together. No dictators here :)

So Trump Maps are banned?

No.

If you re-read the topic title it says "All political talk is now banned." 

But if you're gonna follow up with a stupid question like 'so can I build a giant statue of Trump hovering over warp hub, cause that's not talking about politics either' I'll ban you from the forum for a month.

No, I had no intent of trolling. I just remember someone telling me at one point that Trump maps were banned from selling because of the political banned.

Nah, we're fine with the map. It's self-contained and expresses no opinion.

Not that I'm itching to talk about politics, but I'd like to be aware of any rules. Is political talk still banned from the chat, or was this for the elections only?

As I understand it, as Lucifer said in her first post, the ban would last "from [when the thread began] until this madness and the inevitable uproar afterward is over," which is a very subjective end time. I think that until the admins deem it's an appropriate time, it'll remain banned.

Yeah, politics will always be banned. It's just not a fun time for anyone. We're adding this to our ever-growing list of rules we've built over the years.

We have a #politics channel on our Discord server if you really want to discuss politics or anything controversial with members of Diversity, but it will not be tolerated anywhere else.
