I was here when political discussions got banned. I want to say it was during the 2008 election year. Aside from the nasty fights people would get in, it would detract attention from the threads that actually matter on a German shepherd forum, the threads about dogs. There were a lot of posts that had no responses because many people's attention was with the political debates. That takes away from the reason we are all here and why this board exists in the first place.
