    P&r

    so the forum P&R was created in November 2003

    it was allowed to run and was a good place to discuss multiple topics over the span of 14 years, it was shut down and stated it would be reopened once the season started 3 years ago

    with the disclaimer that this is a football forum, we signed up to talk football

    yet we allow
    anything goes...not a football forum...one topic has over 9400 pages in it...obviously high flow
    birthday wishes
    entertainment...not a football forum
    other sports...not football
    graphics...not football


    so why are we refusing discuss religion and politics since 2017

    im just asking for clarifacation

    This has been discussed and to date, nothing has changed.

    It took a lot of our time. At one point, that's all we did. Football? What football? When one forum takes that much time, something is wrong.

    We tried warnings. We tried being peacemakers. We tried discipline. And the results? Complaints. Some would be surprised at the type of PMs mods receive.

    If this was the only platform for you all to talk politics, it might be different. But it isn't. There are other websites that you can go to.

    We are not saying that P&R will never open again. Just not right now.
    To reply a little more directly to your point, we do have a lot of topics on the boards, but that does not require all topics of all natures, especially those which have caused little more than division and disruption. That which takes away from the positive engagement here has little value overall to the forum.

    Don't mods have to read every article posted and check any links to make sure the material doesn't violate the CoC? I'm guessing that the sheer quantity of articles and links that were posted here daily from Politico, etc. was also a drag to process --I wouldn't want to do it! Especially if it was material against my own political beliefs.

    As a mod, which I am not, if it was against my political or religious beliefs the post would be deleted...

    We want the MB to be enjoyable and a safe place for everyone. Division and disruption is a good description of the P&R forum. It got ugly.

    We try to read every post and check all links. It's hard to do. That's why we rely on members to help us by reporting things.

    There are links that I check only when I'm alone. Just in case.

    Unfortunately, we have been accused of doing that. We have the best mods. Trust me on this.

    I don't think mods had to read every article posted...that's why there is a report mechanism built in for inappropriate posts
