It is nice to share videos, articles, etc and have fruitful discussions without it degenerating into cheap shot political arguments and what-aboutisms. Obviously, these sub-forums would have to be invitation-only but I think this could be something that would be beneficial to the DP community.
    Kinda takes the "Debate" out of "Debate Politics", doesn't it? There are single ideology forums elsewhere on the net, so I'm not sure separate ideology sub-forums add much benefit to DP.

    No, it doesn't. No one said debate couldn't occur within the ideology sub-forums, and no one said take down the other forums.

    Does the Leisure subforum take the "Debate" out of "Debate Politics?"

    There are also other political debate forums on the net.

    You asked for an opinion - you got one.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Subforums For Those Who Share Political ViewsThe staff has actually discussed something like this before, in fact I'm the one who brought it up for discussion. While there are advantages to something like this, there are also disadvantages. As someone has already mentioned, the "groups" feature is perfect for this type of thing. We want to keep the forums open to everyone for debate, for everyone.

    Thanks for the suggestion, closing the thread.
