Yeah, in theory, the political section is the "belligerent" one, and is supposed to help keep NAT and similar places more civil. But JMO's thread suggests that content drives civility, not forum.

(although, I was surprised when I realized that thread WASN'T in political. I think it should have been.)

JMO's thread built off a thread that was in general actuarial and did NOT belong there and was moved to NAT. maybe it belongs in political, but general actuarial was just ridiculous for that thread.

the general actuarial thread got nasty because of the subject. then DTNF lamely reminded people they needed to be professional in that section, but that topic did not belong in that section to begin with. i pointed out how silly it was to keep it in that section and then it got moved to NAT. I suggested NAT, but political would work too. either is better than where it started.

Maybe there should be an evangelitroll forum for people who like to argue about religion.

I think it was sort of rude of JMO to put the obviously political "hate me here" thread in NAT. If she's too good to venture into political, she should avoid political topics, imo.

Maybe she had more faith in NAT moderators than political moderators.

Moderation on this forum is pretty bad tbh
