    Thread locked

    As this thread was started by a poster who has stated he is no longer going to be posting in the non-chess section, and in order to discourage proliferation of US politics related threads, this thread is closed until further notice. Any poster wishing to reply to an existing post on this thread can do so on the US elections and politics thread or can apply by PM for the thread to be reopened.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    I think the thread was began by myself and as far as my memory I am still posting non chess for better or worse

    You are correct; I'd misremembered it as started by ER without checking. It's re-opened but if you again use it to post material that is not distinctively on-topic and could just as easily go in the US Politics thread or the Trump thread then I'll lock it.

    I want to post there that have more of a historical context even if as recent as forty years ago. Because they can also be a continuation of thinking and legislation of a hundred years ago only in a different form. Thanks btw

    I was wondering if there is any point to having a distinct thread for President Biden, as opposed those posts being in the generic US politics thread.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    Interesting that (according to Google) there are three threads linked to ("No Drama") Obama on Chess Chat, but none of them are specifically about his Presidency. What a contrast to Trump!

    I suspect that Biden won't generate enough discussion for a separate thread either - but I assume the decision is up to Scott Colliver, who started the Biden thread.

    It is hard to think of any post that could be made on a "President Biden" thread that would be off-topic on a "US Politics" thread.

    I will be happy to see the Joe Biden thread merged with the US politics thread as long as the Donald Trump thread is also merged with the US politics thread.

    No way bro Trump is about everything - even porn stars, corruption, tax evasion, cheating at golf and infamous tapes. As well as insurrection. He ticks all the boxes.

    Done - the thread as outlined by the thread-starter is slightly political but still, I think, overwhelmingly religion related, so I've moved it.

    I'm still thinking about the Biden thread but not inclined to lock or merge it yet. That said I do think the Trump one was a bit of a special case because Trump is such an outlier in terms of his ability to inspire outraged posts.

    Attention is required in the Mentone Allegro thread.
    It is set and used by volunteers who work tirelessly to promote chess in the area.
    They can do without nonsensical non/ anti/ religion rubbish as in #11 and #12

    I am unaware of Scott's affiliations. It could be opposite to what you may think.

    Additionally, I am sure that this thread deserves much better than being used for pointless garbage as in the cases above! #1899, #1890
    (the latter extremely and wantonly vulgar) particularly concerning posts appealed on a chess related thread!
