Calgon, take me away!
Can you possibly recommend and online forums for discussion of social and political issues, hopefully where I won’t grate upon people too badly?
I like the BB forums, the people and the topics, but I feel like I am involved in a constant eggshell-walk of people resenting my input, which is frustrating. It seems that I am discussing the same topics as everybody else, yet I always get flagged, shouted down, and complained about as derailing. That’s not how it seems to me, I really am interested in the topics at hand, and am trying to work out real-world solutions in my life, just as others here are.
If you are tempted to simply mock me here, complain, commiserate and tease - then nothing happens except for more noise. But it you can suggest other interesting and relevant forums, perhaps I will leave! Then you wouldn’t need to read about my nonsense here.
Websites, BBS, IRC channels, whatever.
