I really don't care what people's political views are. But, this is not the network to post them on. Tired of seeing "Trump this" and "Trump that". Want to discuss politics? Try Twitter.

Guess I've been lucky enough not to have witnessed that on KMN myself, but you are spot on, Matt! This isn't the place.

Thanks for the links.
I will try to remind future "offenders" about keeping politics away from the modelling.
When we want to bicker we should do it about something modelling related instead of politics

Alas not all end in turmoil. Some posts actually peacefully resolve themselves. With proper guidance and links it will resolve itself with civility. Case in point the following link (well with a parting shot)

Not naming names, but I've noticed some repeat offenders.
