It seems people, either through lack of attention or willful disregard, post in party specific threads, even though they are no longer registered as members of that party. This happens even after mod notes tell people to stay off if they are not registered as a member of that party.
Could we either eliminate party specific debates or devise a filter that prevents contamination of such threads?
You're probably talking about the Joe Wilson "What should he say?" thread. That clearly is not a Republican-only debate question. Oh well, can't stop this type of forum question beginning, and we really should pay more attention when it's a Party Only thread. But also those who start threads should do a bit of thinking too.
Might want to flag it in the starting post. Something like:
REPUBLICANS ONLY NEED POST HERE
You know, when it's not clear from the text. This takes some effort, but hey, it's a hard world.
Yes, and there's no way to test if you're actually registered as anything. People apparently do pay attention if you change your affiliation claim on the board. Probably not a smart thing to do.
