  • It can be rude if someone said something mean about your opinion and then you said something mean back!
  • WI would be split up into to at least 3 different groups.
I prefer not to bring up politics because of all the reasons above. Webkinz Insider is NOT the place for politics. If you are a person that needs to share your opinion about that find another forum.

It's a bit disrespectful to challenge someone's opinion. That's all I have to say and I'm glad that talking politics is against the rules.

i'm happy about the "no politics" rule. because everyone has their own opinion, which is usually strong. let's keep that stuff off the site and talk about webkinz and happy stuff! lol

Well I guess thats good. People aren't really suppose to discuse their votes. They are suppose to be private. I don't live in the United States of America, but I still have opinions, and its always better that I keep them to myself so I don't start arguments with people that DO live there, their opinions might be different than mine, and I have to accept that. Everyone should.

I agree, but please don't use words like that. Remember that there are younger kinds on WebkinzInsider and they shouldn't have to learn those words.

Remember, freedom of speech applies to public places. Websites are not public places, they are privately owned. Basically, this is Justin and Wendy's house online and they set the house rules.

Religious talk/siggies/avvies are allowed as long as they are respectful. Religious debate is not allowed. It's okay to state your opinion or belief; it's not ok to slam people for different beliefs or to try to change their belief.

Lucky summed up the reasons for no political talk quite well. It's very divisive, in general, and this is a very heated election. It's easy for people to say things now that they might regret later.

Also, keep in mind that we have a lot of members from Canada and other countries. WI is international and the politics of one country shouldn't dominate the conversation online.

Yes I know it's freedom of speech..but tempers can rise and feelings can be hurt by this. Please be respectful of others as to being polite and not talking about politics. It is WEBKINZ Insider. WI. not PI.

What a rebel you are,bsa99lol.

I'm glad I ran upon this thread, I was wondering about this topic , but I have learned from past experiences that this can become a very heated topic and there are certain arenas where these discussions are nort socially acceptable. It has nothing to do with freedom of speech. All you young whippersnappers will learn this eventually too. We "seasoned " people had to learn it on our own,lol.

But, this site has NOT been without political advertising. I noticed an ad on the left margin to sign up to vote and it carried one candidate's name on it. This was in the past month.
