Maybe just leave it for a day, close it if it gets silly but otherwise it will just fall away as more posts arrive.

I guess everyone has times they feel frustrated with the world and this is a safe place to chat about if you know what I mean, but I do agree, probably best not to focus on too much off topic posts especially when they cna be flamable.

So a friendly reminder I think is fine when a post is perhaps not appropriate for the reasons you are concerned about and I imagine most people here will be cool with that - lock or hide as needed.

Yes, it is political, but it's also funny as feck!

I don't have any answeers, but in all seriousness, perhaps have a specific thread for politics (like the RIP stuffage). Most of the stuff will be looked and, laughed at and forgotten quickly (for the most part). We don't generally get into arguments about this guff stuff.

Or take a stance and say "NO!" It's your site. If people don't accept that, then that's their issue.

As for talking about coding, yeah, we do that. Sometimes, but for the most part this site is about relieving stress, having a laugh and supporting each other.

It ain't political, it's Putin's big fat penis shaped head.

If you do need to block it I won't be pissed off. At the end of the day I still raised awareness that Putin has a head like a stonking great phallus.

I've (Finally!!!) added Likes and Dislikes.

NOTE : The reason I didn't previously add likes is because I didn't want people to "just click like".
This is a discussion forum.
If you DO like something, let the person know why.

Same goes for Dislikes, too.

I've also added a "Dangerous Threads" section for threads that I deem dangerous.
Threads will go there to die.
If they get too rowdy, they'll be closed.
If they get FAR too Flamey, they'll get removed.
And "FAR" = one or two instances.
I'm not putting up with that, just because "there's a section for it".

Use the Dislike button to show your disapproval of posts.

1. I need to add them to "Things" (Showcases, blogs, etc)
2. I need to add them to Comments on those, too.
3. I'm thinking of adding a popup, so that when you click on a Dangerous Thread on the sidebar it acts like the NSFW tag.
Thoughts on number 3 are very much appreciated.

And on the day dislikes were added to Socoder, most posting stopped, as like every other service with likes/dislikes the dislikes always turn into a grade-school bullying situation and people are afraid to post for fear of getting slammed with dislikes.

Likes aren't monitored.. Do with those as you wish.
But dislike will be.

I like the idea of the dangerous threads section, good for when stuff does get ugly.
Plus I'm the first in SoCoder history to get my thread moved to the dangerous threads section.

Irony is there should be a law requiring all statues of politicians to be rendered as penis heads. All of them are worthless.

Hell, would love to put a penis head statue of our mayor right in front of city hall, for having the bright idea of selling the snow plows and the salt trucks.
