      Why do you want this?? If people are discussing something let them do? We can simply ignore something which is not of our interest..

        There are other plenty topics to discuss about and make our forum more helpful...... An personally, i don't want to see HP forum as a place to quarrel with the religious issues.......... May be my fault, that i can't tolerate it............Whenever I see that threads, i feel..... something uncomfortable....

    If the old Christian/Islam fight isn't doing it for you, hop on over to the Politics forum. Left/Right, Democrat/Republican, Progressives/Conservatives.

    Basically, "We're right and you're wrong."

    I tend to agree that the religious threads are a bit over done, I don’t really care about the debate or the issues they want to discuss, nor do I participate.

    However I think it is quite evident, and I think that all could agree, that the constant forum postings on one topic, just by the shear number of them, tends to drive all other topics and threads from page 1 view in the “All” category.

    That alone deprives the rest of the community access to those other topics and threads.

    Given that both the religious and political topics are so prevalent, it might be a good idea to separate both of these forum categories from the “All” list, excluding them from the rest and place them under their own headings in the forum Submenu.

    I’d suggest dropping the “unanswered” which appears useless and replacing it with one for Politics & Religion or one for each.

      Segregation is wrong.

    No I don't agree, I don't like this at all.

    I am not religious, nor do I care much for politics, especially since the majority of the political threads are US based in nature and I know next to nothing about current US politics.

    But I do advocate the right to freedom of speech. Like some folks here, there are and will be in the future many threads, not just politics and religious, but other threads, that I choose to not participate in. I choose not to participate for many reasons, and I claim that right to participate or not.

    The sooner you start to marginalize threads due to a person or group of persons not liking, or having that information not agreeing with their sensibilities, morals, ethics, standards, race, creed, sexual orientation, political or religious (or non) views, THEN you start to take away some fundamental basic rights.

    Everyone here who participates in these forums has a RIGHT to express a viewpoint, whether you agree or disagree.

    I also feel it is not HubPages HQ's main drive either, nor would I encourage them to be enlisted in starting to segregate the forums in any respect, WITH THE EXCEPTION, of their clearly defined rules of the forum.

    For one, I would prefer the forum to be shut down completely before I have my basic right or anyone else's basic right, taken away from them without discourse with use of the forum.

    @info..if i get tired of some topic , i stop visiting those..it is as simple as that..there are so many people in hubs who want to discuss various things and most popular topics are politics and religion..now one cannot stop others from discussing that..isn't it?...

    Actually many forums, if not most, forbid any political and religious subjects in them. I was surprised to see the political and religious categories when I came on here.

    If we can talk about those two why not also have a category on hardcore sex or a dozen other things that would be banned here?

    Every forum has rules and subjects that are allowed and not allowed. Webmaster forums only allow webmaster subjects, a comics forum only wants comics subjects.

    Since this is a writer forum I thought this would be a place to talk about,,, uh,,,, writing! How to improve your writing, how to make money off it, with maybe a little "general talk" category.

    Politics and religious forums are there for those subjects, and that's where you should go if you want to talk about them.

    BY having these categories here, in a writing forum, it floods the forum with drive by looneys that want nothing to do with writing and don't even write a hub. They just want to talk about how god fearing they are or how wrong the other political party is.

    I fully support anyone to talk about anything and have their say, in the right forum. A writers forum should be about writing and related subjects, not hot button topics that cheapen the whole forum from what the main topic should be,,, writing.

    Surely viewing the threads of the religious and political forum posts shows us how not to write (with many exceptions to this rule).

    Constructive discourse is great for those that understand a well constructed argument and can accept new information. However, there is so much bigotry in each of these forum categories that well-written arguments are few and far between.

    Perhaps as a writing site (apparently, according to @Bill Manning) we should reconstruct the arguments from those posters that show a lack of writing skill in order, perhaps, to educate them to process information and deliver an argument that is, at least, decipherable.

    This does not just go for the less well educated but also for the discernibly over-educated that 'talk' over the heads of the majority of us. Good writing is getting ones ideas across to your audience as adeptly as possible.

    My limited experience of these forum posts has shown me that the posters have difficulty in getting their ideas across to the opposing view participants. That is if those with opposing views are willing to try to understand and not just SHOUT over the top of the person with the opposite view.

    I do, however, believe that 'if it is not a banned subject' then all points of view should be allowed. That way I can see whether it is likely that I would want to read any of the Hubs contributors to the forums produce. This is not where I agree with a particular point of view but rather that I appreciate the construction of their arguments - compelling argument construction always makes me follow a link to the perpetrators hubs.
