Making Etc. A Fun Place Again!

Are you tired of the political, religious and controversial threads in the Etsy forums? You know, the ones that aren't really meant to find out what you think, they're created to alienate, attack, and get attention from people. I know I am!
I've posted in a couple myself, for some reason I feel drawn in. But I've decided I'm not going to answer them anymore.
The Etsy Etc. forums used to be fun, but now it's becoming a microcosm of negativity. And people who usually make the forums fun are either not on them anymore or not as often. I thought it would be fun to do a give away based on making Etc. fun! I haven't worked out the details yet, but would really like other peoples input!
Maybe we could see how many controversial threads we can kill just by not posting them, or we could drown them out with fun things. Let me know what you think.

I don't post in them ever. I'd much rather talk about the important things, like overeating peach cobbler or what happened to Natali Imbruglia.

I was sucked in a few times this week, but never again.

Surely after the election is over, it will be so empty there will be tumbleweeds blowing through etc.

Hopefully not tumbleweeds. I just am tired of the "I know more that you know, and you're just an idiot" attitude. Posting in a craft forum isn't going to change the world, but it may change some people's minds on whether or not they shop in your store.

I used to post in them all the time. I stopped posting in negative threads, they're just frustrating.

Now I just post in the promo thread.
