If you ban politics, why not then ban religion? And then ban profanity and then ban negative reviews and then ban... FT Forums is an open content forum and has been as long as I have been a member. In my opinion, it is a positive attribute for a Chinese website to host a forum open to world opinion on any subject.

Disinformation trolling and insult is not freedom of speech, its rubbish.



FT would then also have to ban the discussion of Covid and various other subjects where there is disinformation. It would require moderation to the extent of at least one full time person to read every single post every single day. As far as "insult" goes, that is a very subjective issue. We have a thread existing currently where one person considers another person "insulting" over their choice of words in a response about coils.

No, censorship and the form of "good governance" suggested, will kill this forum.

What's left to kill? 2018-2019 this place started killing itself and we are where we're at now.

Knock knock, let the devil in. Malevolent as I've ever been, head is spinnin'. This medicine's screamin', "L-l-l-let us in!"

If Fasttech adopted a zero tolerance approach to political content and asked me to remove it I would.

Do you like my suggestion cmj55 ?? :))



I really don't care whether your avatar stays or goes, I mentioned it because it clearly shows that you are politically motivated.

where we're at now.



In my opinion, "we" are recovering. The Forum will probably not regain some of the most valuable contributors of the past who have left. That said, if some of us can mature a bit and continue with a modicum of respect, then perhaps we will be able to draw new and valuable membership.

Actually no. Arrogant people who need policing. The lack of, is why we are here. Greengummies ect... That's not politics. Scat porn is not politics.



Politics are only the recent slew of problems

Let's not omit religion and the most horrible contributor, DISCORD. Please, let's not be myopic. I would think that, if one is so anti-political, one would change their avatar voluntarily.

So who here has ever been forced to click on a thread, or read it?

What some of you suggest is a dangerous, slippery slope. It's called "off topic" for a reason, and if keeps the vape threads clean of nonsense, I'm all for it.

Believe me, there are certain detractors that call themselves members here that I wish would just go away...but my guess is they've been booted from every other social site, and this is their only option.

I love the vapers here (most), but I'd love to see more involvement, too.
What does he mean when he says words?

"Involvement" will come from keeping the product threads clean and respectful. And, you are correct, no one is forced to enter a thread, any thread. Embroilment in argument needs to be curtailed in product threads and, imo, it needs to be voluntary, as in agree to disagree.
