Is there any point in keeping the politics section on here?

Lately, no one ever starts new topics on there and the only member who ever does is defense and that's just a bunch of his spam BS. Because of that, I wonder if it wouldn't be a bad idea to just get rid of it altogether.

I like the politics section. Things are quiet right now, so slowdown is expected. When things start to get "hot" again, expect all forums to start becoming busy.

Pity, as politics affects defense. I wish more people were interested in it.

Agreed. It's a shame that what tends to be good for this site also tends to bad for the planet.

I liked the politics section until the spam started, now I don't even bother reading it.

Looks like our spammer was either a bot or someone from China. We've banned the entire ISP, so hopefully that will stop. We'll keep an eye on it.
