Admittedly, I'm new to HubPages. Over the past few days, I've read some of the political forums and commented on a couple. One of the things I've noticed most is the sniping, goading, and the out-and-out threatening remarks some posters make to each other. Racism and reverse racism run a muck.
I've seen it continue over into the questions and a few hubs. It seems to center the most around the political forums as well as the religious forums. That's why I've posted this forum in the political section.
Why all the bashing and threats to one another? While the politicians do as they please, running rough-shod over the American people and trampling the Constitution, we're bickering amongst ourselves. Last time I checked, these people work for us, not the other way around, and we've failed badly at our management skills. All the while, the politicians are loving every minute of it.
So, I ask again, why all the bashing and threats to one another?
Wouldn't we be better served managing our "employees" rather than arguing amongst ourselves?

I've been experiencing a drop in traffic for the last week or so. I've been seeing a lot of people in the forums talking about how they are seeing increases in traffic, but I am seeing the opposite. Is anyone else seeing a drop in traffic?

I know we're all grown-ups here and we expect heated conversations, especially on the politics and religion boards. Ideas are attacked without quarter, and I suppose that's fine.However, over the last couple of weeks I've watched one poster go after another on a purely personal basis. The offender...

I was attacked on a forum thread by someone who never wrote an article on this site. I know this is an issue we discussed other times. But in a time of angry political division, perhaps we should revisit this policy? Why should writers who occasionally go on a forum have to defend themselves...

Or does it just seem that way because the Democrats/liberals are less vocal about it? Lately it seems to me there are many many more conservatives and their agendas being pushed at us. I usually keep away from politics entirely, but if it is true that most of the forum posters are...
