These sort of topics tend to be VERY volitle, though. There are people on both sides of the fence, and they rarely get along.

While I agree that these topics should be allowed, if the community could be more mature toward them and not degrade to flamewars within 20 posts, they might be allowed. But such is the general trend, so they tend to be preemptively deleted.

EDIT:

And even though it's censorship without a doubt that the mods delete topics like this, the board isn't funded by the Gov't, and is therefore not bound by free speech laws.

Edit; ^ That also nails it, Bluescreen.

Freedom of speech does not apply to private entities. That's all there is to it.

There are plenty of political websites for you to discuss such things, but this isn't one of them. This forum has expanded a lot since it was created, and will continue to do so, but that doesn't mean we're about to change the part of the ToS disallowing political and/or religious discussions. If you think it's okay because it already goes on in another section, it's not, and you should report it.

US. This is "News for Overclockers". As Computer users we are reliant on the internet to even access this site.
We have to draw the line somewhere; there are LOT of political topics that can be cross-linked to technology/overclocking/etc., but because the user base in general here finds the political part of the story more significant, it will be discussed instead. Such as here, a comment was made regarding the government controlling the internet. That won't mean much on its own but will spark its own conversation that drives the whole thing off topic and gets everyone fired up and ready/willing to flame/troll. Just because it hasn't happened at the point of closure doesn't mean it wouldn't if left open.

Closed. As always, reposts will be deleted.
