Posted on 11/30/2012 9:01:14 AM PST by Vinylly
Well, yesterday I discussed a liberal website called Outside Asylum, and my experience with it. For me, the best websites for political discussion are neither conservative or liberal, but unbiased. There's nothing more boring then talking to like minded people, but a website that can have a dialog between opposing minds without resorting to name calling. I found a huge website that everybody should know about, it covers everything from your hometown and state, science, religion and politics. As long as you follow their rules, you can have a good entertaining discussion. I use a different monikar there, but it's a good place to go. http://www.city-data.com/forum/#u-s-forums
Soliciting for another website on FR?
You are on one, FR!!!!
So Donate to keep us that way!
Yeah, we should all migrate there.
Free Republic sucks, it’s boring. HTML is too hard.
I’m outta here!
The problem is, the ‘unbiased’ ones are or soon become, Liberal.
Once THEY introduce their customary and predictably ugly language and insults, and from there on it’s abject crap.
Ummm. Did you know that Free Republic has individual STATE message boards for exactly what you are saying we should go somewhere else for. R u nutz?
Go from HERE to a lousy vforum?
For anyone who knows how to express himself, and procure the level of discourse he needs to unburden himself of the political stresses of the day, Free Republic reigns supreme and has for 15 years. Yes, it’s “conservative”, but there is a great deal on FR that is “non-political” also.
I haven’t bothered with any other sites for a long long time, but when I do follow up on a link that may have appeared here on FR, to Huffington Post, or wherever, and bother to read
their posts and replies, it just confirms how great FR is.
I will check out the one you recommend, though.
Are discussions about the virtues of Cheese allowed?
No intention of going there, sounds like another site where the main question is “Can’t We All Just Get Along” or “I’m OK, Your OK”.
Well, found a little on Cheese, but I don’t see any pictures. Think I will remain here for now. Cheese discussions without pictures are on par with “Hit It” discussions without Laz.
I visited your recommended website city-data.com , for a good five minutes, and went immediately to my state’s area (New Jersey)First thread I saw posted there was titled “How much do you tip furniture delivery guys?”
It’s nice to know someone is dealing with issues that us pansies on FR consider “TOO HOT TO HANDLE”.
This city-data site looks like a good example of something so
vague, general, generic, so “all things to all people”, that it winds up being “not much of anything to anyone”.
A website is just a website, but FR has evolved under the stewardship of the great JimRob into the most influential, oft-quoted,fearless and “purpose-driven” website out there.
It will ALWAYS be so!
I used to love visiting political boards/chat rooms to fight with leftwingers. Then I grew up, and I realized that getting down in the dirt with those pigs was griming me up, too.
If talking with like-minded people is so boring, I don’t even know why you’re here to begin with.
Moose missiles are nothing compared to Velocirapdeers.
So why are you here as this is a CONSERVATIVE web forum?
“There's nothing more boring then talking to like minded people, but a website that can have a dialog between opposing minds without resorting to name calling.”
As a CONSERVATIVE web forum, there is no reason to allow trolls to infest the board.
Usually, the trolls come in and toss a few canards coupled with insults aimed at conservatives.
With the predictable results of the Undead Threaders and the Viking Kitties coming out to play with them and hijack their threads.
“I found a huge website”
Good, glad to hear it.
I'm sure it's so mega colossal so as to dwarf FR, right?
“that everybody should know about,”
“it covers everything from your hometown and state, science, religion and politics. As long as you follow their rules, you can have a good entertaining discussion.”
State boards exist on FR.
There ya go.
“I use a different monikar there, but it's a good place to go. “
Is that like a Monica?
Maybe you meant Moniker.
And why go anywhere else?
You LIKE dealing with libtards or something?
You want to REACH OUT to them?
Or are you just trying to divert traffic from FR to this other place?
Much like the trolls at trewblew tried, and TrewBlews predecessor, and Clown Posse, and many other similar places that claimed to be everything you just described?
Velocirapdeers, they will drag you from the treestand and feast on your delicious meats of meatiness.
I agree with many here.. I don’t argue with trolls, and name callers.. I used to frequent a few musician forums and I got quite bored with arguing with lefties..
they don’t agree that the sky is blue...I refuse to waste my time.
Why go to a board that has lefties at all?
Nobody will change anyones opinion but instead will create anger and resentment.
I don’t get why this thread is here.
My nose is itching, this thread may be Undead in the future.
The only political discussion worth participating in is to determine the best method for skinning the skunk and getting rid of the smell of the critter who snuck into our White House. And now, because we didn’t skin the sucker soon enough, he now has the support of over half of the other critters in the country and I fear we’ll have to re-build some new buildings and taking great care in installing a mess of critter-proof doors.
