this site has become a political forum. Very disappointing, more basketball less politics. Ruining a formerly good forum for basketball ideas and opinions.

I’ll go ahead and make the political topics invisible for you.  Anybody else can request the same.

I agree that its certainly gravitated that way lately.    We haven't had basketball since March, much less any sports to really talk about.   You can only talk about so much when games aren't being played, there is no free agency at hand, and a draft that has been pushed to October. 

Hopefully, as sports return, you'll see a shift again.

I think it is hard to talk about something (basketball--or sports in total) that is not going on. There is a lot going on in the world of politics now so it is a hot topic. Heck, the political talk may be a good thing...it at least keeps members active. I should also mention that while I disagree vehemently with some people's political stance for the most part the political conversations stay fairly pleasant and there are bright minds sharing their thoughts on all sides. I fully expect a shift in topics when sports are back.

We need actual basketball news to get actual basketball talk.   

Or we have to create our own basketball topics and hope it catches on.

9 more days until our first scrimmage with OKC!  Assuming all moves forward with the bubble, this "problem" will be in the rear view mirror.

I have to say, I have actually enjoyed the political posts.  There are some very intelligent members, both liberal and conservative, and there is generally a lot of respect in all posts.

Thanks Don.  Shows you how invisible I've become.  My own father won't come to me for help on here. 

Then again, I'm not sure I'd know how to do that.

The Latest Discussions board is pretty saturated with CE stuff.  A wee bit going on on the world these days, huh.

I think I did it! 

Have a look and let me know.  I only eliminated the CE topics.  Do you want all of the other non-sports stuff gone (TV, Music, Movies etc...)?
Yup

Generally we just give somebody a “NCE” designation, found in their account profile.

Yes it is. I was thought that Politics is the decision making process in any society small or large, private or public. In that sense Coronavirus Concerns is very political.

It should just be a matter of national health but it's a political statement to wear a mask etc....

I can't wait for basketball to begin if the bubble can stay inflated.
