    What happened to this place, it got political and unnecessary argumentative. Why? Why is this happening on a Minecraft servers forums. Its a video game. Its designed to have fun. Yes I understand people need to change rules to enjoy themselves but like seriously what the fuck. Political threads are just so stupid. I don't know why I made this thread but don't you agree it's gone too far. Next thread is gonna be something like "Do you like fat people?" or some random unnecessary thread no one needs. So dumb.

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN FULL OF POLITICAL THREADS?

    I guess people don't wanna talk about minecraft and jnh all day ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Political threads aren't bad but it's that people can't respect other people's opinion and trying to make it an argument
    For example Your own thread which asks a "simple" question where people can throw their opinions but if someone's opinion about it is different OH BOY!

    I think it's good for these types of discussions as long as people can be respectful. Learning from differing opinions can help people grow and understand themselves better.

    All of the threads have been very civil except a few instances. Just because people disagree, it doesn't mean they are arguing. It's good to listen to opposing views. Always be open minded and never be afraid to admit you're wrong.

    Edit : lol didn't you make the ALM thread?

    In my opinion, the world as a whole needs mandatory education on this subject. In my professional gaming history, I had to literally ban controversial topics form happening in-team because people don't know how to disagree.

    So so true. People need to in general learn how to disagree. People aren't perfect but they could try. I'm not perfect either I fuck up more than the average folk but cmon they're just opinions doesn't change much

    its not the political threads that are the problem, its interesting hearing peoples thoughts and opinions on different subjects and matters, its just the fact that people don't like being wrong, and it turns into a battle


    as long as youre talking to someone thats actually mature and has a brain, you can get some really good discussion and its really interesting
