Politics on a non-political list

<< < (2/2)


--- Quote from: Sharnita on November 16, 2012, 09:13:41 AM ---I have seen this occur not just on threads or forums.  Somebody can post  a picture of a kitten wearing a cute hat on facebook and a few comments down somebody will post something like "If the Pink Party has their way all kittens will be minced and made into pies". And of course similar comments are made about the Purle Party.  It doesn't matter that they don't relate to the photo/subject/whatever.

Oh, absolutely. Sometimes it seems like a creative exercise for those commenters. "How can I drag the topic of the school buying new basketballs into a political rant? How about the topic of Dr. Seuss? 17th century needlepoint? Saran wrap."

I think the best thing to do would be to take a little break. If the comment thread got bad enough to be deleted, it will probably flare up and be blocked pretty quickly.
