Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

I've added this little flag to the thread icons.

If you start a thread in the Vault that attaches political blame for the economy to one party or another, use that icon so the people who want to avoid such threads can do so.

If the original post is NOT flagged, but your post contains political comments, use the flag icon so those who prefer to skip over your post, can do so.

Does this work for everyone?
Thanks for trying FB, You have made a good attempt to satisfy everyone and I hope your compromise will work, but way too complicated I think.

From the responses on this thread it seems way more people would prefer open discussion of economics. If there are enough who want it otherwise then by all means they should have their own room.

OH
