Could we possibly...

make the news/current events group an opt in group for the time being? I have my own political beliefs, but i am on DS for parenting/diapering talk, not who is better then who politics wise.. its making it really hard to have questions answered or to help answer newbies question right now with the billion "OMG so and so believe XYZ threads". So i was thinking about what i could do besides hiding under a bridge until after the election, my solution was maybe making that forum an opt in forum? am i the only mama slightly overhelmed??

I would agree with you, FWIW. I am so overwhelmed by the politic talk in EVERY forum it seems! I want to talk about fluff not politics!

I'm burnt out on the political arguments too...I haven't been chatting here as much over it actually! There really needs to be just one big opt-in political forum!!

Can't you just chose to not go to the new and current events forum?? It's not like you are being forced to read those threads.
