    ED has no place because political polarization?

    There may not be an even ratio of liberals to conservatives, but being a socialist doesn't get censored here, trust me.
    If there is a problem, it is that too often Liberals are judgmental and afraid of other liberals seeing them posting in the same place as someone they don't agree with.

    That would be the joke. You would return every week to explain how you made it back, and during the explaination you would be blazing a fattie and dropping your cell phone and compass as you explain. A "Rodion's Gilligan's Island type scenario. The suspense would be, "Does the "Wandering Jew make it back this time." -- Of course he does he's the star of the show. Then there's summer break and no one knows -- (end with) a real cliff hanger. You falling into a stream and suffering from "hypothermia" etc., (i.e.)

    Listen it's not prime time shit. It's the internet.

    Excuse me if I'm wrong because I'm tired as hell, but is that guy saying a good chunk of ED being super 'alt right' (even lumping in people just doing it for shock value) is a good reason for it not to exist?
    I'd argue that gives it even more of a place since there's less sites like that, and less sites where you can post anything (legal) and not get banned for mild to moderately spicy beliefs right now.
    Go to heck, guy who's username I didn't read, you're a dummy.

    Can see where this guy is coming from in a way

    Historically ED has been a hotbed of liberalism, especially while we were closely tied to the Anonymous crowd.

    Anyone looking from there until now could say that the community had become overly politicised, but im more of the opinion that it was politicised then, but now people are more realistically conscious of issues at hand



    Kind of think of it in the way that liberals label anyone right of them as "far-right"

    Ahh, I think I get you

    I'd still call ED pretty liberal in its' violent "live and let live" attitude when it comes with who's posting and what's being posted.
    I'm not that smart, but as far as I know a individual freedom is a big deal in liberalism, we got all soooorts of that shit

    We're still a bunch of shitlords by popular tumblr standards though yeah lol

    Am I the only one who don't think about politics when I read ED or post on EDF ? Also why do people assume everyone has to be either alt right or liberal when it comes to the internet

    This is really depressing. What happened to the forums? Did we have to downgrade in order to add to the legal fund?

    No, it's not. It was done because the forums had died out in terms of activity.

    Which led to @uberfukken coming up with the 'genius' idea choosing to remove a bunch of sub-forums (often unused, redundant), alongside with the ratings (removed because other forums do it too), and integrated Disqus (shitty social media site, btw).

    Also can you faggots please completely readd the system already? I'm getting sick of these "rates X" posts.
