Politics & Primetimer: Updated 07/03/19

Recommended Posts

As per our golden rule: Be Civil (or Be Gone), Primetimer expects respectful interaction no matter the topic at hand.

Where politics is involved, people often get out of joint when another is not in line with their ideology. Then the mods have to spend more time babysitting reports from, and/or moderating in, those forums than is acceptable. That's not something Primetimer is willing to continue doing.

To clarify:

  • We do not allow mention of elected political figures (past or present), current political candidates, political bodies (Congress, Parliament), political movements or political parties, including jokes and asides, unless those entities are specifically mentioned on an episode of the show being discussed, or in editorial content about that episode. Even when this applies, they may be discussed ONLY in the context of the show. This means no elaboration, speculation or using what was said as a springboard to voice your political thoughts generally. Anything outside of this is considered off-topic and subject to moderation measures.
  • Name-calling or nickname use aimed at politicians, current political candidates or political entities is no longer permitted -- for example, President Cheeto, Lyin' Joe Biden, etc. (As always, any non-political folks are fair game for nicknames.)
  • Discussion of 'Hot-Button Social Issues' is allowed [for the purposes of Primetimer, these include but are not limited to, abortion, healthcare & gun rights], providing it relates to the episode being discussed or takes place in a Small Talk topic.
