    Before there is yet more thread splitting ('Tribal Societies' seems on the verge of doing so), should there be a special 'Michael Baron' thread containing all the various threads started/dominated by Michael on 'Politics'? Because there does seem to be some overlap between these threads - apart from the presence of Michael Baron, of course

    We could even have a subforum!

    I've noticed the above from time to time with other posters or sets of posters - that there are certain slush points that threads tend to get steered into and frequently bogged in more or less no matter what their starting matter. If I set up enough of these things I suspect I'll eventually cover all known strands of Baronism (there probably aren't all that many) and eventually wherever the discussion goes it can be shunted into a thread that already exists.

    So long as posters are not blatantly threadjacking into irrelevant subjects it's OK if discussions drift off topic. One of the problems is that sometimes when posters post excerpts of media op-eds they try too hard to fit them into an existing thread they are not really relevant to instead of just starting a new one. From time to time I've closed or merged new threads because they were unnecessary duplicates but this hasn't been that common (antichrist excepted).

    I'm not sure yet if I'm going to split the Western-superiority strand from the tribal societies thread. They are sort-of related. They may well drift apart and get split though.

    Idledim's last two posts in the "Same-sex marriage" forum seem to be in violation of this decision:
    Some posters are reminded that the "no illegal material" on this site includes material that breaches copyright, and also that many posters find the posting of long cut-and-pasted articles irritating and boring, especially if they are at a tangent to the main subject of the thread.

    Posters are therefore requested not to lift copyrighted material in full from other sources. Quoting a reasonable portion of an article for comment purposes is OK. Material cut and pasted from other sites will be assumed copyright unless the mods have reason to believe otherwise.

    The moderators reserve the right to delete, in full and without notice, any cut-and-paste jobs that are suspected of breaching copyright. Very long cut and pastes may also be deleted even if they do not breach copyright.
    I don't think The Australian would appreciate us destroying their business model, especially given their recent financial problems.

    Yes. Full site policies on copy-and-pastes of copyright material may be found in the sticky thread here:
