Greetings fellow Chatters of Conquerclub.
For a long time now, us Moderators, have watched the political debates conducted in Global Chat from the sidelines.
This has mostly been centred around American Democracy, and obviously the two political parties involved.
The general debate has degraded to such an extent that if someone does not agree with the other side's views, that person, or people, are then barraged with hateful speech.
This is usually conducted in such a way that is walking the line, but not fully crossing it.
This has a detrimental effect on the rest of the members on the site, and the complaints have ramped up over the last few weeks.
The abuse and degrading barbs directed towards each other has made many members avoid Global Chat.
Let's be clear here, debate is welcome on the site, and we have forums open and available for those who wish to indulge.
GLOBAL CHAT IS NO LONGER THE CORRECT AREA OF THIS SITE FOR POLITICAL DEBATE/DISCUSSION.
This is what things have degenerated to with the constant bickering between regular chatters.
The Chat Team has been directed to ask that any further POLITICAL DEBATE, be taken to the forums, OR to the Chatrooms.
Chatrooms. are always available if people would like to speak real-time, to the extent that private rooms can be created.
Rules in the Chatrooms are somewhat relaxed, and the Moderation Team will only step in when there is a clear breach of Chat rules, or Site Guidelines.
Thank you all for your understanding.
