Your right Narfstar,
It is a challenge, a balance of freedom of expression that could lead into strong views.
As I complete my MBA working towards my DBA I see these cartoons as a way to carry out a point of view and to create debate. Where that debate goes, I understand may not be just an explaintion of the cartoon or counter points of the cartoon. However, could turn out to be emotional, and passionate position(s) by individual(s).
If we have 3 people on the site, out of the 10,000 + we have that would like to delete this forum I will do so. That is 0.027966813 percentage of the site. While not close to 1% still good enough to the ending the thread to avoid any potential issues.
Just post here. We just need 2 more to go. However, these 2 individuals can not be moderators or administrators, as it is important to know what other members think, otherwise we run the risk of dictating what members can view and read. Yes, I would agree members could go elsewhere for these cartoons. However, Perhaps there is an interest for this here? Perhaps there is not. We only know once they write! I think this is a fair way to deal with this.
Thanks for your comments, in looking ahead on the potential challenges of editorial cartoons.
I love political cartoons and jokes. The problem is politics and religion are the fastest way to cause a site to go from the friendliest to the foulest. While I think the oil spill was a disaster, I also believe drilling is far safer than buying oil from our enemies. Yes alternative fuels would be better but we ain't there yet. Personally I am not offended by hardly anything political. So I found the cartoon excellent at conveying its point. On the other hand make fun of Jesus and I would get very upset. From what I have found even if we have a political or religious thread that people go into willing, it is not profitable and foster hard feelings.
