    Well I just assumed they'd read this thread and take it into consideration. But without support from the forum community, it's unlikely to make a difference. Perhaps after a few days of feeling things out, I can post a poll and get an official count on how the community feels.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    Well, at least I can see you are sincere about it, but I don't know how many people are willing to give a second chance to a place that they feel wrongly expelled them.

    I don't know either. But at least they will have the option. Something needs to be done, because this isn't working.

    So is it time to consider amnesty for posters who were banned? It has gotten so bad that I don't even care if you bring Bethere back. Bring them all back. I cannot stand one more thread with nothing but angry old nursing home denizens shaking their canes at the sky.

    This forum is in desperate need of some balance and spice, otherwise it will just turn into a smaller version of Trinnity's forum.

    As for their past rule breaking, so what? The nursing home gang throws around insults with a frequency and severity to easily match del on his worst day. Why should they get a free pass while other members are banned? It just doesn't seem fair to me.
    I do appreciate libertarian challenges and I've said that many times. The discussions are typically civil and...well actually interesting. Not sure how I feel about this idea though. Do I really want a bethere crowing about how the forum couldn't go on without him? Who was banned anyway? bethere, del, Cigar and a bunch of "WN" none of whom I can remember because their stays were so short.

    Honestly, I think part of the problem is that there just aren't many engaging topics. Granted, I haven't helped. I've started a handful of threads since the Fall.

    Here is a list of the posters who have been banned since August of 2016: http://thepoliticalforums.com/thread...ow-Forum-Rules

    A good amount of liberals and conservatives.

    Bring them all back, I say. This place is becoming incredibly boring and lame.

    Kudos, however, to Peter and Common who try to rev the forum up in the mornings with current events etc.

    Looking over the list there are quite a few who should never have been banned in the first place. Some were socks though.

    Nobody wants to start any threads in this environment because the nursing home gang will just descend on them like a swarm of locusts.
