Fanpost for Discussion of the Events Going on In The Country Right Now

Good Morning!

For the weekend thread that I post I made a decision to allow continued discussion about the ongoing violence in Minneapolis and the reason surrounding said violence. I did not make this decision lightly, but rather with the idea that as it was centered in Minneapolis (at that time) it would affect a majority of Daily Norseman users I hoped it would give them a place to vent.

Since then, the demonstrations, curfews and violence has spread. Instead of continuing on with this discussion in the daily threads, (and placing an additional burden on Gone Fishin) I've made this Fanpost just for that discussion. From the emails I received my decision was either welcomed or cursed, either way at least you're paying attention. The Open Threads will continue with their usual tomfoolery, gifs and crockpot recipes.

I'll allow this Fanpost to continue with the caveat that politics not enter into the Fanpost and personal attacks do not either, however tread carefully.

If you came here to be an internet tough guy or sharpen your political pitchfork or just be a jerk you'll be gone.

If you have questions regarding my decision right click my username to show my profile, my email is in there, or you can leave me a message in the thread.

This will be a topic driven Fanpost, if you want to post gifs, mock drafts etc go over to the Open Thread, either Gone Fishin or I post a new one everyday.

As always, the rules are the same:

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to wash your hands, be safe in your surroundings and Welcome Aboard!

No Covid 19 discussions.
