The reason most threads about "The View" are closed is because they degenerate into politics. The latest one concerning Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walking out on Bill O'Reilly started out, on the surface anyway, strictly discussing the etiquette of walking out on one's guest. I think that lasted for about 15 posts. Then it devolved into why the hosts the walked out, a topic which is highly controversial and divisive. It was only a matter of time because some posters just can't help themselves, apparently, although they should know better when it comes to this forum.
Now, the cynic in me thinks the OP of that thread, and honestly I couldn't tell you who it was and I don't care, must have known that the it was a very potentially volatile subject. But maybe not, so I'll give her/him the benefit of the doubt.
