- No Religious or Political Content
Religious and political discussions frequently become divisive arguments and are outside the scope of this forum. Discussion of tech policy or tech law is acceptable.

It’s rule number two.
Go back to the way it was
What you’re saying is you want people to stop complaining about political content in the lounge then. “Don’t complain about stuff that bothers you, just ignore it.”
And here you are complaining about people having a problem with political discussion. What I’m trying to say is, maybe your complaint isn’t as valid as the complaints from people who don’t want to be driven out by the political discussion. The rule didn’t burst into existence at the start of the universe, it was intentionally created, put high on the list, and justified with an explanation.
I agree with the rule, it’s a feature not a bug. I don’t want to be forced to go somewhere else to avoid political debates in the lounge, and I don’t see why it’s such a big deal to you. You’re making a big fuss as a point of principle, but it doesn’t actually matter in any practical sense. There is a channel dedicated to it on discord if you want to discuss politics.
Actually that gives me an interesting idea. Maybe a dedicated politics thread on the forum? That way it can actually be ignored by people who don’t want anything to do with it. I’d support that experiment.
