Knowing how volatile politics are on Ponyville and how sensitive people can be, people should know to go to /townhall/ when they want to seek arguments and debates out and stay on /pony/ when they don't feel like.
A dedicated politics mod could be interesting for /townhall/, but I don't think there is any reason to scrap the board.>>6947
That to me is a different point.
While every thread can be political in one way or another, we should still be careful to keep themes that incite political discussions and arguments on /townhall/ to avoid bringing the polemic to the leisure boards.
While elections and their outcome can be exciting and be approached with silliness, it simply is too big a hazard to keep on /pony/.
I'll leave it at the mods discretion what they want to move, although i'll be salty when my threads would fall there as well.
If you feel like making a thread to celebrate election results, it would be better to create a celebration thread and let people post celebration stuff. But not to mention politics or bring up the subject.
And, probably not sassilly bringing up politics anways.
