For those voting no, can you give a short version of why you don't think it's a good idea?

yes should defend their point as well

I want to protect the off topic board from politics

That sounds reasonable. I thought the intent of eliminating the board was to eliminate political discussion, hence, I think it needs to be restored separately from the OT board. I think the move was a hasty one on the part of management and could have been handled better.
The whole problem was a result of poor management.  I pleaded with V from the get-go for tighter rules enforcement and monitoring.  Nobody would be banned regardless of how out of line their posts were.  The concept was "all the posters would keep everyone in check".  Didn't work.

CTC, I thought you were like the ignore function Ninja. You had lots of people on ignore. Many others followed suit. I don't see the problem.
I had 6 people on "ignore".  Just one of them should have been banned.  The other 5, I considered not worthy of reading anything they said.  The forum has gone from one extreme to the other.  I think both extremes are a mistake.
