Where did I suggest banning people for an opinion??
Im talking about taking a stricter view of things that are clearly not discussion. Deliberate attempts to wind up, insults, accusations that others are "bots" etc... basically all the stuff that takes the debate off into trench warfare territory.

Threads on NI typically don't fall into the trench warfare mindset - they begin there. Its not as if someone opens a topic on British collusion with loyalist terrorist groups for a broad, interesting debate and exchange of ideas and examination of evidence. They're begun to open up a new front in the trench warfare to exchange the same windups, insults, accusations that others are "bots" etc.
That's fine, but in my opinion the NI forum was useful in that it created a "Thunderdome" arena for it. It also protected the involved posters by giving scope for a separate charter that allowed for the more bitter clashes between posters on those topics. If you're going to merge the NI threads back into the wider politics forum one of two things are going to happen: the "trench warfare" of the NI threads will set the tone for the rest of the forum, or the posters most interested in discussing NI topics will pick up a lot of bans and cards, feeding a persecution complex that is already rampant.
Though with the Politics Cafe now existing, its possible that the trench warfare will simply move to that arena instead, if it hasn't already.
