Politics

Posted by Lyichir , Jun 27 2013 · 174 views

Guys guys guys.
 
I just wanted to say I'm generally proud of what's been going on in the blogs lately.
 
People have been making entries (at least partially) about politics. And the staff has, from what I've seen, been VERY lenient about letting them live so long as they stay civil. And for the most part, they have.
 
That said, there are some things I'd like to talk about.
 
Most of us know what happened in Texas. A lot of (generally agreed upon to be) bad stuff went on. Remember that that was in response to (generally agreed upon to be good) stuff happened there too. Remember that both sides of the debate there have Texans arguing them, so even if the guys in charge act like cool dudes sometimes, I don't think the people who stood there for 15 hours would like you slandering their state after they tried their very hardest to change the status quo there for the better.
 
Also, I've seen some off-site mumblings with people complaining about the staff. And I think that's not that cool. The staff have been awesome lately at letting members express themselves (particularly here in the blogs) and only step in when things start to get vitriolic. Five or six years ago I don't think I'd have seen this sort of open discussion about gender politics or gender identity here. That's not to say the staff did the wrong thing back then. But we've matured as a userbase, and I think B6 has been generally awesome at letting us explore the boundaries of where the politics rule needs/doesn't need to be enforced. So don't be hatin'.
 
But in general, y'all keep doing how you're doing. That's part of what keeps me coming back to this section of BZPower.

We [at least HH and I] appreciate this entry as well as the decorum that has been displayed in the blogs today.

 

Thanks, guys.

I still think the rules could be relaxed just a bit more, but I do enjoy a little more freedom to discuss these subjects simply because everyone seems so mature nowadays. Not to say there's not going to be drama, but imagine what it would have looked like back in the day ...
