    Frankly, making splitting this into polit discussion forums and gaming forums inevitably invites massive negative consequences. People without social skills talking about games, and then starting to bitch about how armies in Roman era were made purely from the same group of people. There were not a random soldiers from Nubia mixed between soldiers from Latinum, they kept it sane. Yea, people with lack of social skills can have unpopular views when they are talking about historical accuracy of computer games. While they might have some weird views, it's unlikely they would be a part of some terrorist group.

    When, people would talk about politics on exclusively politic forums, we might encounter Angler problem. Or worse, it might degrade into some weird forum where people would post picture of a dick wearing a nazi hat, and call it discussion. Aka retardo land posting becomes norm, a sane posting would become minority.

    considering the kind of people who go to a videogame forum to talk politics, I think it would be a great improvement removing them from the Codex. Especially when a part of them post their retarded political opinions outside of GD and ruin perfectly good threads about rpgs.

    Yes, you should remove yourself from the Codex. And perhaps even consider suicide. Nobody will miss you.

    Nobody loves you.

    Dear DarkUnderlord,
    I guess it would depend on whether you want to run a RPG site/forum or, well, whatever this is. "Political", sure :salute:

    Again, why don't you cretins who don't want to discuss politics simply leave for one of the dozens of sanitised forums out there? It's not like anybody forces you to post on or read the Codex.

    Probably Scruffy, he pulled that with the retard of the year in an attempt to rob TemplarGR of his well deserved title.

    You guys realise it'll only get swapped back after a bunch of you have changed votes.

    Scruffy did the same in the retard vote thread.

    We don't post in a democracy. The results of the poll are mere suggestions anyway.

    And I think DU knows who did what, if he didn't do this himself.

    (Note the date.)

    Congratulations Destiny Cleanser, you absolutely fucking called it.

    For the record, I only noticed this thread this morning and have been catching up. Splitting the Codex is a Bad Idea, it's a classical Divide & Conquer-tactic that has been employed numerous times throughout history by weaklings to prevail over the strong.

    The Codex thrives because it's not like every other site, and doesn't attract that much attention. These proposed changes will make it glow brighter than Chernobyl to the mutant freaks on the left.

    If the weaklings prevail, I dare to question your definition of strength.

    Fuck, looks like the voting on Codex is as tampering-proof as the US elections.

    I sure hope DU doesnt plan to actually use the switched results as a reason to actually do the split, that would be just ridiculous. If this is just "for the lulz" then w/e, but it aint as funny as whoever fucked with the results thinks.
