Matt ArnoldContinue the ban
Those of us who are tired of hearing this topic barge into our other discussions will hopefully receive better enforcement of the existing rule restricting it to the Serious Business section.
Drakeo VortexContinue the ban
These discussions are breeding grounds for non-virion behavior.
hkhenson@rogers.comContinue the ban
Current political material is on topic only if being used as examples

We had better learn how to handle real life issues and the system should see to that.

ABOUT FACE!!! -- echoing rhino -- We had better learn how to handle real life issues and the system should see to that.
David LuciferContinue the ban
I agree it is not the best solution, but we need something better in place first before lifting the ban
LenKenContinue the ban
This is probably the lesser of the two evils: Though Id prefer that no one be banned from the mailing list (well, maybe not no one), Id prefer even more that the mailing list remain interesting.

CaseyContinue the ban
I'm with Lucifer on this one. Until a better solution comes to fruition, then this topic should be banned. I've no problems with the topic, per se. But, the list bombing of articles to the list has the tendency to lead to problems.

just because this TERROR meme (promoted by Bush etc.) is so affective espeically in US that does not mean we should ban its discussion, it must be exposed.

echo Rhino. The problem isn't the topic but the disruptions of one person. Ban that person and not the topic.
BlunderovLift the ban
It seems to me the tinkerings with the reputation system are effective. In any case it seems absurd not to discuss what are the most momentous events this century.

HermitprivateAttempted topic bans are simply silly. If anything should be addressed, abuse, abusive behavior and repetitively abusive people should be managed via Meridion - rather than attempting to manage ideas.
picklerLift the ban
there are rules (of sorts) to safegaurd against abuse? then lift the ban and allow heated yet "respectful" discussion/debate. possibly a moderated section?

Meridion works! War & terrorism are extremely relevant and should be discussed.

Your vote will count for something when you join the reputation system
