SH removed "politics" from its topics. Too much heat from the administration?

I didnt get a warning. It was simply removed as a topic from the choices. Could this be a sign of pressure from the administration thats can't handle debate or is SH simply streamlining its site?
Or, is SH in bed with the administration like the press is and doesnt like some of the remarks of better yet, the truth bring brought to some of these polls about a corupt administration?

    and how exactly did you do that? By stating the poll was stupid?
    the poll question was , why did SH remove the politics section? Of course we all know NOW that we can go to the area you mentioned. I think many of us who actually answer a broad spectrum of different questions knew that already. The question is why do people think SH removed it and WHY didnt we get a memo on it? Stupid poll? Im not defending the poll mind you I just need to wonder why it's considered stupid by you when it's a legitimate question that SH has still not answered. Not that anyone really thinks they will if there is some political posturing going on.

    defending poll mind stupid legitimate sh answered thinks political posturing

    I suspect there are a couple things at work here:
    1) The level of vitriol has resulted in terminating some SH members and turned off many others;
    2) We use this platform free of charge and SH has to be able to pay for the costs incurred through advertising.

    The objective in dropping the category may be to keep peace by dispersing political polls, while they hope to maintain an atmosphere conducive to attracting and keeping advertisers on the site. If the atmosphere gets progressively hostile between members, it puts the whole operation in jeopardy. SH does not want to be in the position Fox News is currently, albeit a manufactured plot to oust Beck from the network and silence critics of the current administration. Media outlets operate close to the margins, so we should not take for granted the availability of any given site. We should expect to maintain our freedom of speech, but that means we have to use it responsibly.

    Not trying to lecture anyone. Simply see it from the perspective I think SH sees it. This is their livelihood. Do we have the right to jeopardize it when we enjoy it without charge?! responsibly lecture simply perspective sh sees livelihood jeopardize enjoy charge

    I have to wonder why several of our conservatives are banned and many disgusting libs are still on.
    The libmorons are getting crushed here as are in the town halls and are on the run.

    SodaHead management is free to do what it likes with this website. You're free to go to another site if you don't like it, right? What -- aren't you a conservative and a believer in free markets?

    Nobody's obligated to provide us with a platform to express our little "ideas." What -- are you demanding that SodaHead PROVIDE you with what you want? Isn't that whiney sense of entitlement what "teh librulls" are accused of having?

    Not that I know of. There seem to be a lot of political websites with a lot of user interaction, but they're usually lacking in other categories for discussion, such as entertainment, sports, religion, etc.

    Might be a good business to get into if you're enterprising and have really good programming skills.

    Thats not the point of the question. There was a political area, now there isnt.
    So---------,
    Did you get a memo?
    If so, why didnt you share?
    If not, why not?
    Is there something afoot in SH land we should know about?
    Is it simple maintenance, if so, should'nt we have been notified?
    And if SH can and does take down polls it doesnt like [conservative ones mainly]that means someone is monitoring the polls right?
    So if thats the case, WHY DIDNT WE GET A MEMO YET ABOUT THIS POLL?
    Could this turn into a birth certificate cover up?
    LOL!! Anything is possible in the good ole USA.
    The truth is out there, just ask Mulder and Scully.

    Even when Messaih said he's was gonna "change" he gave us a heads up.
    Of course he lied like hell about what direction the "change" was gonna be in but he did mention it before hand.

    Obama sucks

    change heads lied direction change gonna mention hand obama sucks

    The point is, from my perspective anyway (memos, we don' need no steenking memos), that somebody decided to have one less toy box, but all the toys are still there. Just because somebody decided to include all donkeys under the heading of asses does not mean one can't still be a donkey..........or an ass, it's a free country.

    When did that happen? Well, that shouldn't stop us from posting blogs and questions on the subject of politics and government and exercising our right to free speech, I assume. Or will any discussion of politics be deleted? Whenever censorship is involved, it's usually liberals who want to shut us up before we wake up the masses.
