    It's partially justifiable. The time you use to put into a significant other is now free. Have to fill it with something. Might as well be a hobby instead of drugs, alcohol, and a lady of the night.

    Funny how you say that arguments in status updates drive users away.....yet the only thing you've managed to do is annoy so many members who have been here for years and have had minimal issues with status updates. 
     
    Political topics come up more in an election year? Gee, who could have predicted that? If responding to reports in status updates is taking too much of your time as mods....perhaps its time to re-evaluate the reporting system? 
     
    If I go to report a post, "Politics" isn't an option, even after you guys have implemented this no politics rule. Why? If you're worried about politics and are saying it takes too much of your time, but not giving users the ability to point out political content to make things easier for the mods.........You see the issue with your logic there? If anything you are wasting even more time now having to manually enforce this issue on top of having to manually deal with false reports in status updates. 
     
    You can say whatever combination of words to justify your actions, I particularly won't ever accept any of them bc I've seen nothing done that helps make your time as mods easier. You guys stopped it because you felt like it.

    I was considering an upgrade from a 1080ti for xplane 11 a while back, then the Vulcan upgrade happened and I had second thoughts.
     
     
    Then MSFS2020 came out and I haven't considered it since.

    So I'm going to take a risk, and comment without reading every reply between now and when I last commented. I'm out of town and exhausted, with only my phone to work with, so bear with me. 
     
     
    If it's a minority of users, and why are you focusing on them?
     
    @LogicalDrm
     
    Your attitude is standoffish, and honestly rather inaccurate. You claim "this is a tech forum" yet there are a plethora of topics that are not tech related. You seem to not have realized that while people might come to this forum for tech related reasons, it's not just purely tech that keeps them coming back, it's the community that drives activity and what people enjoy. It's what keeps me coming back.
     
    And again, you, the modding staff, are making the assumption that these reports are coming from people who are honestly bothered by the mere existence of political posts on this forum. And that in this day and age, that is a rather naive assumption to make. 
     
     
    Honestly, have you never considered just not responding to a report or flag? Are you actually required to respond to each one in some way? 
     
    I get it, you guys devote what I assume is a lot of time to a very active forum, I don't even know if some or any of you get paid, but you seem to always operate from the thought process of "we have to do something". 
     
    And that's not always a good thing. You do realize that the forum isn't going to just fall apart overnight because you decide to just not take action when it isn't causing an objective problem on the wider forum. I'd rather you guys focus on the baba love potion robots (are those still a thing?) than people having legitimate and honest, if passionate, discussions. 
     
    Shit, if you feel obligated to step in, have you considered just making a comment? Just a "guys, calm down step back, and take a breather." if things get heated. You're mods and admins, most people will listen, and if they get disrespectful and refuse to be reasonable you have a blank check to act.
     
    Hoping you all have a good night.
