    • The Political Asylum Forum is Now Open

      After some BGO staff discussion, we have decided to remove posting topic restrictions here at BGO and are re-opening the Political Asylum forum.

      From day 1, we have never desired to restrict, limit, or squelch any topic of conversation our members desired to talk about beyond topics which might be deemed profane, violent, or inappropriate for a web community.

      Our decision a year or more ago to prohibit threads and posts of a political, religious, or controversial nature was made only because some members demonstrated a consistent inability to participate in those discussions while adhering to our expectations that members treat each other respectfully, civilly, and in a spirit of friendliness. If we're being honest, the other factor leading to that decision was that our Moderators were becoming burdened with and fatigued by constant misbehavior and the need to moderate when folks could not adhere to basic expectations.

      Many of those problem members are no longer with us. I point that out because it is a new day. We are going to allow the vast majority of our members who can have meaningful discussions around even emotionally-charged or controversial topics while remaining civil and respectful the opportunity to do so. You all are free to converse about the topics you care about. There is only one stipulation. Be respectful. Be civil. Be cognizant that we all have a right to our own opinion and it is not your job to berate another member because you disagree with them.

      If anyone struggles with this you would be wise to forego conversing in this forum. Our new approach will be very simple. Act out and we'll simply toss you. For years we let problem posting go on and on and on because we did not want to lose a single member. Those days are gone. We will toss a member who demonstrates they don't care about the tone and community we desire in a heartbeat. We are not going to have our Moderators working full-time again. They are wonderful people and they deserve to be able to enjoy BGO as a member just like you do.

      With all that being said. The Political Asylum Forum is now open for posting. Go forth and prosper.
