What!? Preposterous! Seriously though, why is this so hard? I remember back when we started up A4 back in forever ago, we discussed politics occasionally but it never ever got even close to as out of hand as the current events is. We hardly moderated that stuff back then, people were just...not as much asshats. Maybe it's the current political climate where it is almost encouraged to give zero regard to things as independent proven research or "facts" or for that matter even common decency. But that doesnt mean that we cant be decent human beings to each other on the forum, does it? And if people cant handle that in CE (the current evidence strongly points to people not being able to handle this) then nuke it from orbit. When it all comes down to it, this isnt a politics forum. It's an anime (and other geeky things) forum. If people cant handle free discussion about that type of topics then just ban it completely for now. If you want to discuss politics and be an ass to other people then go somewhere else. Let's just quickly look at the rules we all agreed on: You agree to not use the Service to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws. Seems pretty clear to me that what is currently going on in CE is not really lining up with these rules.
