Now it is become “political talk 2”. I have began post that should have been placed on political talk. I wish I did not do that. I want this place to be fun again, a place to escape the bad, the negative, the politics of the world.


While I agree with your sentiment, the world is forcing politics into everything we do. Sports, entertainment, and going to the store are rife with political statements.

NOLA has half the town trying to cancel and destroy the single best person in that town from a financial, moral, and humanitarian standpoint, who has done more good for the town than any elected official, because he doesn’t believe in kneeling. He didn’t shite on kneeling just said he didn’t believe in it.

Nobody wants all this politics BS but it’s being forced down our throats every single day.

Can we move all CoronaVirus discussion to its own forum or move it to political talk? Can we move all protesting, rioting, racist, monument removal, etc talk to political talk? Can we move all legal battles and “ism” talk to political talk? Can we move all Baton Rouge mayor talk to political talk?



I don’t disagree that politics needs to stay on the PT, but other than the Mayor talk you referenced above, not all of that you listed is necessarily political talk either, so perhaps a new board is needed for “Societal Talk” or what have you for that subject matter that kind of falls in between.

re: Time to clean up OT Lounge- it is time
I agree that politics are injected into everything right now. Which is all the more reason we should temporarily rename this board “anything but Covid and politics”. Honestly, between social media, the news, and this place, there is no escaping it and it is detrimental to mental health. People ought to be able to temporarily escape the drama right now.

The best threads are those with good old fashioned gossip and banter. Or even the random Instagram hashtag threads, where we can appreciate instahos and laugh at the silly shite people do/choose to post online.

No, but the current OT obsession with posting anything and everything COVID or BLM related is and it’s spreading fast.

The OT is supposed to be brain candy. Now it’s nothing more than a watered down political talk.


It was watered down a few months ago. We are well beyond that now.

re: Time to clean up OT Lounge- it is time
My suggestions:
1. More mods. Allow each board to have its own moderators. They would have the power to ban users from that particular board, not the entire TD site. They would also have the power to move topics to another board. This would need some sort of oversight so it isn't abused.

2. More boards. This is the OT - off topic. Current events are On-Topic. Create a current events, or News board. COVID, BLM, etc would fall under "News". Create Poli Talk (R) and Poli Talk (D) boards, let them have their own moderators.

Political talk? Is that what you call these far right wing circle-jerks around here?

re: Time to clean up OT Lounge- it is time
I posted the top posts for each forum based on replies yesterday and everyone was like "hey brah what a waste of time" and "you must be really bored" and peej even wrote "why did you post this?"

That used to be what the OT was about. Not 50 BLM/Kung flu threads.
