Subjects which are impossible to debate properly and civilly.

Post by chaggle »

I would include Brexit (obviously) - never brought up in the pub although I see FB posts from some of my friends which indicate their leaning.

Also, bikes V motor vehicles V pedestrians - easy one to fall out over.

Also, dangerous dogs. Try pointing out that bull breeds cause more death and injury than all other types put together - particularly if there is a Staffy owner in the group. :ey
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

In my own forum (military guns and ammunition, although off-topic discussions are also permitted) I have three exclusions: politics, religion and global warming! The forum has an international membership including quite a few Americans, so these subjects tend to derail the conversation if they are brought up... :agg

The other thing I ban is personal attacks, which have a tendency to occur if discussions get too heated. This usually works quite well, I have some Russian members participating and the discussions involving them are quite civilised.
