I don't think that pachelbel was trying to bash this website or the people that only post in entertaining threads. I think he was just pointing out in general what priority people put on the most important issues in our world. In general, people tend to ignore politics and just focus on the things that they find entertaining. Meanwhile, their lack of interest in politics is allowing politicians to chip away at our rights. But we don't want to hear about that because it's boring or sounds crazy.
There's plenty of room for all kinds of discussions on the internet, and there's really nothing wrong with not being interested in politics, but everybody should take the time to at least read up and stay informed, then they can go back to talking about acne.
That said pachelbel, this sites political forum is one of the busiest forums here. It does get plenty of notice. And, I'm not so sure I want some of these fashion brats posting in the politics forum anyway, if you know what I mean.
