Is this about me saying Sami Zayn should win the 2017 Royal Rumble? 

 

Yes.  I don't believe in progressive booking and distribution of belts.  The "internet left" is killing wrestling.

Can I at least get a mod on record saying we can still discuss Glendale city council meetings?

👍

 

The main thing?  Don't bring up something political that will devolve into an us vs. them flame war.  City council meetings?  Stadium funding?  Those are relevant.  PC culture in uniforms?  Crosses the line.

What about the campaign logo threads? Based on the wording of the rule it seems like they would fall under the banned threads, but the main idea of the them does fall under the purview of the general design forum.

I don't know, I feel like we can forge ahead without discussing campaign logos.

I think we've done a fairly good job in the past of keeping campaign logo discussions on the topic of design itself, rather than on politics. There's obviously random exceptions to that where someone throws in a gratuitous political comment, but I think as long as that's fairly discouraged, we can discuss campaign logos like adults.

 

I certainly hope we're able to still discuss that, because we're about to get a slew of them over the next 6-7 months.

If the ban is going this far it should also include a ban on discussion of any Native American-themed teams' aesthetics.

Just ban anyone who's not mature enough to carry on said discussion.  Discussion of team aesthetics is the very purpose of this board and the reason some of us joined more than (jesus christ - it really has been) 14 years ago.  There's a process in place to deal with people that put the board's mission at risk.  They should be eliminated - the mission should not be changed.  We do not negotiate with terrorists.

This would be ideal. I joined eight years ago for the same reasons. People should be able to talk about Native-themed identities respectfully. But if we can’t criticize them, we shouldn’t be allowed to really comment on them otherwise at all.

Yup, but it's been proven that HERE isn't the place where that happens, so it isn't allowed.  

 

I don't understand how this is so difficult for people to get.

Because it's generally one or three people who ruin it for everyone. Nuance can exist.

Maybe. But there have been more than one or three people who have been banned from here for not understanding said nuance.

 

Maybe that means that this isn't the place, and that those of us who are drawn to sports logos don't get that line to not cross.

This is in response to some of the feedback we heard in this thread. Hopefully this will allow for discussion of debates around civic governments and stadium funding, as well as around campaign logos.
