The closing of the Canadian Election Thread by EhMax...

I have been generally ignoring this thread for a while only posting from time to time when some post really struck in my craw.

I think by now we all have already voted or have decided how we are going to vote and I don't think any more posts to this thread are going to change anyone's mind... so if it has degraded in terms of content form that which I was seeing even recently then I support the closure.

Maybe we can move on from this partisan and emotional thread to instead just have a thread that is like a Stanley Cup thread, predicting the seat out come rather than the kind of posts we have been previously making... Turn it into a game rather than a serious competition.

Just a thought.

Why censor discussion that people are not forced to partake in? Don't like it, don't read it, or don't post. Simple.

Well I don't know who complained, but being called a loser wasn't what I had in mind for the thread nor a pair actively trying to derail it. The cartoons are now going into joke du jour, some don't know when a joke goes too far.

I have heard reams of unchallenged "humour" and unsubstantiated invective thrown at Conservatives. Guess it doesn't wear so well when the shoe is on the left foot.

well I think it went on both sides macfury, it isn't becoming to complain otherwise. But the latest just got ridiculous. Otherwise, the thread did well until it seemed to have gotten ugly all of sudden.

At this point, it's the last day of campaigning, so, it makes no difference to me.

Oh my, that is quite offensive. How uncouth.

Come on, the left loves to skewer the right wing with humour. It happens every night on Jon Stewart, This Hour and Rick Mercer. But, the second humour go against the left, well that's just not acceptable. You can dish it, but you can't take it.

Two more days. I'm going to see the PM tomorrow. Watch for me on TV.

well vandave, this isn't the jon stewart show. Now I didn't complain over your cartoon etc., because I was walking away from it. I didn't care. But the thread took an ugly turn, and it just got boring. There's always a few that'll report things all the time.

Anyway, that's all I have to say about it.

Some people complained because the thread got boring?

Allegedly. I wasn't charged with it, so it never happened.
