? for the mods regarding banned subjects and ads.

  • I know that politics is tabu here. I get it and I understand why. However, there are ads here telling me to vote for Prop. 16. Can we have a discussion about it since there are ads? I'm asking before I voice my opinion.
  • The ads are served to us, and we have no control over them. Often they are keyword based, though I'm not sure what keywords would be triggering that ad - it might be geographical, given that you are in CA.

    Since a) Prop 16 only applies to our CA members and b) politics violate the rules, I don't think a discussion here would be relevant or appropriate.
  • Putting on my mod hat. Agree!
