We used to have a Madder than Hell forum but is was replaced with this thread, which seems to serve that purpose well. If it bothers you, why not just ignore it?
I do for the most part. I've been reading this forum for a couple of years and I don't think anyone who has been here long enough would disagree that some people have parted at least "online" friendships (probably offline ones as well) because of political differences here. That's pretty sad.
