FYM is only the reflection of the posters. Nothing more. Nothing less.

If people don't like it? They can try and post new articles themselves.

Part of the inherent limitations of this method of communication.

we respond to the easy, emotional issues and let the harder, intellectual issues slip away.

(am myself guilty as charged)

probably easy to spit out a gut reaction than compose a fact-based argument when i check FYM whilst at work.

also, more nudity needed.

I for one am somewhat tired of the same arguments and so have been hesitant to post a few discussion as it always goes into Bush bashing and not discussing the merits of the issue. For example

ACLU charging Rumsfeld with torture
Rep. Sam Johnson R-Texas saying he can fly a F-15 over Syria and drop a couple of nukes and no worries
The budget, bankruptcy

And more nudity please

i know -- i saw and read and liked, and want to give you indepth feedback, but i don't usually have time during the day (work's a bitch, you know?) and we're currently without internet at my house. when is it due? by next week we should be back online and i'll have time (if you want) to respond with more thought at night.

but, at first blush, good work. well argued, and you nicely kept it legal and not about acceptance of homosexuality but about how a ban is unnecessary (and, imho, downright nasty).

Not enough interesting news, too much of the same topic going on.

maybe we should change roles. lets have the liberals defend bush and the war, and the conservatives oppose the war and bash bush! now that would be interesting!

and whats wrong with FYM? well, all threads kind of end up being the same thing (why bush is a wanker etc.). i admit that i am most certainly responsible of this

also, i think it is pretty predictable how everyone will respond to everthing. strong conservative opinion is conservative about everythin and liberals always whine about the same things.

if i post that elections are held in baziloonia, bush supporters would jump in and say 'see, its cause of iraq! we did such an awesome thing!' and the liberals would say

stability becomes so predictable

That's easy, just call him an irresponsible idiot.

This is often the truth of the matter.

Under this definition, I'm a liberal.

What's wrong with the threads in here? Depends what your expectation is. Do people expect to have discussions based completely on facts and devoid of personal political stands? Would be hard to do on most of the major topics 'cuz they have to do with religion, politics and social issues.

I think it's become pretty evident that most issues get split under political lines. But that in itself shouldn't be too problematic if during the debates and discussions a good number of complexities on any given issue are touched upon. At least they get aired out and who knows? Even if they provide new insights and illumination to just one person, then it's been worth it.

But i think Dread's getting at (and as all_i_want said) the tendency of so many threads to get polarized and swamped in negativity. That is becoming fairly prevalent and predictable and, hence, boring.

I, for one, am still enjoying many of the debates. I like when people add their sources and links to information that i've never before seen or would've known existed. It's helpful.
