    Re: How did you find Debate Politics?

    Another one for "debate politics" google search.

    I am a forum junkie in general, but I noticed a pattern in myself.

    1. Become interested in subject.
    2. Find forum for subject.
    3. Learn/do everything I wanted to on that subject.
    4. Grow bored.
    5. Wander away into the off-topic areas to debate politics.
    6. Grow bored with slow pace/the fact that everyone else is just there to kill time until their topical thread picks up.
    7. Leave.
    8. Repeat steps 1-7.

    So I figured why not just cut the crap and go to a forum for what I actually want to be talking about.

    Was posting political stuff on a computer message board and almost got banned. Typed in "debate politics" in Yahoo! and ended up here. Lurked for about 3-4 months before I posted.

    I was wandering around the internet in a drunken haze when a small purple light led me to a brothel, 12 hours later I was looking for a treatment for friction burn and ended up here.

    Re: How did you find Debate Politics?

    I had a couple terrible experiences with online political debate on forums I found through game strategy websites (a sub-forum to strategy). There were a couple decent people, but overall I'd rather not think about it. After a second (even more terrible) game strategy website off-topic forum, I googled and found this place.

    At least there is some sanity here, I'm not saying a lot. But this place is a dream compared. There, it was mostly MEtards and Animes *shiver*.

    Can't remember.
    Lurked for a couple of years, before I joined.

    Search engine. I caught the politics bug in IRC, and eventually migrated to web forums. I was on a few other forums before this one, but this is the only one I've stuck with.

    I wanted an American political forum, so I ended up here.
