Hello EMC, I had a small idea while reading the forums recently. It is currently against the rules to purposely lead threads off topic or to use immature or rude language towards other members, but I feel that a more specific rule would be beneficial to the forums community: A ban on politics, strictly unless said otherwise by the person who posted the thread. I have seen a good number of threads here during my time on EMC where politics were not relevant to the conversation. Politics, unless everyone can be mature and knowledgeable about it, often leave all involved with a bad taste in their mouth. If this is a specific rule, this section of the 'off topic' rule will likely be taken much more seriously and we won't have to see so many good threads closed due to heated, off-topic debates arising. I appreciate your constructive criticism. Thoughts?
