I honestly don't know what to say anymore. I've been on the internet since the Prodigy days and a part of numerous forums on a huge variety of subjects, some even specifically for politics. This article and the way the comments have been handled is absolutely the most hypocritical thing I've ever witnessed a forum staff do, per THEIR OWN policies and years of precedents. It is UGLY and looks awful. I'm sure I'll be back at some point, but I'm taking a break from Eleven Warriors for awhile. Good luck. I really hope it doesn't look like 247's Blue Board or the mid to late 2000's ESPN forums whenever I come back. I will miss this site.

Wait. Time out. Did I read this right? You're blaming him for not wanting certain realities tied into sports (or at least a single site discussing sports)? That's been maybe the biggest attribute of this site for years. He didn't just make that assumption. And you are saying 11W is going to write more articles of this nature in the future?

That's fine and dandy, it's your site and you guys will do what you wish. If Tebow visits Urban with a stop abortion T shirt, will that be an article? I sincerely hope not, not on this site.

So 11W is now actively promoting activism? I'm not against that at all and I obviously don't make the rules here. But that goes completely against everything this site's current commenting policy and several years of precedent are about. I know there are a lot of young guys on staff and the current collegiate and political climate tell you that it's cool to have a hot take on every single issue, but really, it was nice to have a place to get away from the CONSTANT BOMBARDMENT of political and hot button issues. That's not ignoring problems, it's simply having a site dedicated to OSU without certain issues thrown in the mix. I really hope you all have a meeting to consider the future of this site. Again, it's not my call, but it was nice to have a place without some of the other noise in the world. In the business world, there are certain things that differentiate companies from each other. One of 11W's was not having threads like this.

AVOID POLITICS, RELIGION & HOT-BUTTON SOCIAL ISSUES Sorry, we just don't want any of that stuff around here and discussing one of those topics is the quickest way to earn the banhammer. Nobody cares about your hot takes on these issues and there are plenty of other places on the internet for you to talk about politics, religion, gun control, immigration, abortion, etc. I've been here for YEARS, too. This stuff used to get shut down in a hurry, ruthlessly. Now the staff writes the articles.

The fact that the article is still on the site pisses me off far more than any of the comments I've read on any side of the argument. Topics like this used to be shut down with an iron fist here. Now the staff writes them.

I don't care about the helmet stickers. I care about a site that I consider my "home on the internet" clearly posting an article that breaks its own commenting policy. A policy they have taken an EXTREMELY hard line on in the past and I really appreciated that fact. Obviously, as seen in thread and on Facebook, if this was posted in the forum by a member, it would have been deleted almost immediately. I love the separation of politics and hot button issues from sports that this site protected. I'm really tired of politics spilling over into EVERYTHING these days.
