Random™ Poll™ of the Day™! (TM™)

Remember that last poll in which I asked who you want to be president? Well, you don't always get what you want. Now vote who you think will win the US elections.

(This will remain open for 25 days, so... you can change your vote down the road if you care to do so)

Oh dear...real world politics on a DC forum.
I personally sport some pretty radical political/religious ideas, and if I expressed them here some people who disagreed might make negative judgments about my moral character and intelligence based simply off of what I believed.
This is a place where people united by their interest in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan discuss it freely without regard to political/religious differences. Holding discussions about real world controversial issues here might detract from that, IMO.

Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

Take a glimpse at the history of the off topic board. You will find that politics, religion and social issues were discussed occasionally back when the forum was more lively.

This is the Off Topic section, though, not one of the boards designated for the purpose of discussing Conan stuff. I've been in this forum for years and have also moderated it for years. I can assure you people "survived" through those discussions (besides some specific salty people who were salty even before taking part in said discussions). If you don't wish to take part in such conversations that's completely up to you.

Yes, I am aware of what the Off Topic section is.
All I'm saying is that if one's political views are known here, and another user finds those views to be extremely distasteful, then it could have a negative impact down the road on discussions that actually do pertain to Conan.
I'm still a noob at this point (and even if I wasn't, I wouldn't be a Mod) so I have no right to determine what kind of threads are and aren't okay here. I'm simply raising a suggestion, and I apologise if I came across as rude.

I don't recall that ever being a thing.

We're not going to ban discussions about politics, religion, social issues, etc. That's really all there is to say.

I did not suggest that any kind of speech be banned, but okay.
