Can we change a forum name?

Tony can we change a forum name? I find the World news and Politics Discussions Forum poorly named....shouldn't it be named "Bleeding Heart Liberals and George W Bush Bashing" forum? If we re-named the forum I would never stumble upon what should be a discussion of World News and Politics, but in reality is just a forum for democrats, tree hugging hippies and bleeding heart liberals to voice their warped opinions of Republicans and George W Bush.

Should we call it the "name calling" forum? I try to stay out of there, because arguing with friends is never fun, and being insulted by them is even worse. Thanks.



and for what it's worth if you haven't noticed that this board is heavily conservative I'm shocked.

I love you.

Rep sent.

I stay outta there too for the same reasons Vcook mentioned, as well as the fact that being a right-wing conservative, I have a strong work ethic and am busy working in alliance with The Man and have not the time that liberals do to waste being negative and blaming others for misfortune.

I like it in there Entertaining debate, and very easy to piss ignorant people off. Admittedly, i've limited my participation as it can get tiresome.

Rick, I do tend to agree with your sentiment. The Bush hate cracks me up

I love you bro, but

And I've been so good lately...

Time for a change.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Simplest solution is to just put all the political crap in its own area.

Rick if you really want a headache, try teh madison.com forums. Its amazing how they can find a way to blame Bush and republicans for people letting their dogs run free in town.

Blaming Bush for everything bad makes as much sense as blaming Hilary and tree huggers for everything bad. That idiotic door swings both directions.

It used to be after 911 when it was popular to be conservative, now that comedy central has made it popular to be liberal it's swung the other way.

Better yet ... have the political forum hidden, so that when i hit the "new posts" none of the threads show up. The "bushy fucked up" thread title makes me want to puke whenever ive seen it.

Furthermore, if any political comments are made outside that forum, the member is automatically banned.

Perhaps we could name it "The Liberal Drama Club" of "The Democratic Drama Club"?

I visit the forum just to see the liberals get all worked up.
It's great entertainment!
