  • Question limits of politics?

    While looking through the GD forum I was wondering if there was any way we could get a description or definition of what is considered politics?

    It's whatever they say it is
    Apparently state politics may float depending who you are...like increasing hunting and fishing Tags/licensing fees on redistributed state funds..ect

      I know the above quote does not answer your question "...description or definition of what is considered politics?" or define what happened to ban 'politics and religion' discussions on this forum but it does define 'politics' pretty well imo.

        Despite your accusations of favortism, we've been quite clear from the start that discussion of fish and game management is most welcome in those specific forums. It has nothing to do with who you are.

        Give it a rest, please.

          Unfortunately, I don't know that a black-and-white definition is possible. We recognize that there is going to be some gray areas here, and when something is questionable we'll try to deal with it in a respectful manner.

          Perfecting the new system will take patience and grace on both sides.

            I know it is a difficult thing, but I was hoping for some sort of guidlines. With some of the recent accusations, I was wondering if we needed some sort of guide.

                Sounds like the answer I gave but with more PC

                  So since it can't be defined is there a way to get the ok for posting a subject?

                    If it's questionable I would PM Brian M.... or it might bite you in the butt later.

                      Politics:

                      –noun (used with a singular or plural verb)
                      1. the science or art of political government.
                      2. the practice or profession of conducting political affairs.
                      3. political affairs: The advocated reforms have become embroiled in politics.
                      4. political methods or maneuvers: We could not approve of his politics in winning passage of the bill.
                      5. political principles or opinions: We avoided discussion of religion and politics. His politics are his own affair.
                      6. use of intrigue or strategy in obtaining any position of power or control, as in business, university, etc.
                      7. (initial capital letter, italics) a treatise (4th century b.c.) by Aristotle, dealing with the structure, organization, and administration of the state, esp. the city-state as known in ancient Greece.

                      —Idiom

                      8. play politics. a. to engage in political intrigue, take advantage of a political situation or issue, resort to partisan politics, etc.; exploit a political system or political relationships.
                      b. to deal with people in an opportunistic, manipulative, or devious way, as for job advancement.
                      Ultimately, I think Buster is correct:

                              Under a definition like that many controvercial things would be fair game. Since I think the intent of the politics and religion ban is to bring civility to the forum, I suspect that controvercial subjects such as global warming would also be looked at unfavorably. but where the line is drawn seems a bit questionable.
