The complete inability of people to maintain civil conversation in this subforum and the resulting work/headaches this creates for the mod staff have resulted in this subforum being closed and in "read-only" mode indefinitely. While having to occasionally remind people, especially newer members, to curb their tone, rein in personal attacks, etc. is part-and-parcel to running a discussion forum, the need is far too frequent in this subforum. We overlooked quite a bit during the election cycle just because there was so much discussion to be had. Now that it is over and things are still as they were, and the mod staff are tired of having to tell people to be civil, we are going to steer the discussion back to more benign topics in the other forums.
