    SHC had more than its fair share of personal attacks.

    It's the ageing process at work.

    When SHC started it was mostly teens to early twenties guys with too much time on their hands for playing vidya games. Once people hit the second half of their twenties they usually have a job and are living on their own.

    This is swiftly followed by becoming politically aware for the first time. Then the political threads start accompanied by all the crankiness from having to work for a living and deal with people. Add in the failed relationships, financial worries, general malaise and crippling emptiness that has started to set in by this stage of life and you have a recipe for radioactive shitposting old men.

    On SHC most political threads were in the Eve Alliance Politics section. FHC general looks like a global politics discussion forum.

    tldr, to save FHC we must cure the ageing process and/or have everyone quit their jobs and go back to live with their parents.

    Rule 5 prohibited political discussion on shc, I believe it was recinded in 2008 to permit discussion of the U.S. presidential election. I like political discussion, but it has its pitfalls, like generating hostility

    There is also the fact that global politics has also got more toxic since 2008 and discussion of it has reached terror levels of toxicity. You only have to glance at twitter, in 2008 twitter was for arguing about pineapple on pizza. Now it's about how Nazis aren't actually that bad if you think about how much worse all the other people are.

    Same on FHC. Remember the poo thread? That was fine. Now we have 4 or 5 hundreds of pages politics threads which are simply and purely mindless iodiotic sperging and internet hardmanning.

    The bolded part is only true for a minority of the participants in those threads. Unfortunately they managed to turn the common perception of those threads as if everyone would do the same. I don't k now how to solve that for all, but I manage to skip over those posts, without putting people on ignore and read the remaining posts with actual content and arguments. And I still do learn things about different countries/cultures that way. Which I find valuable.

    It's actually interesting how FHC has tracked the global political climate, becoming more polarised, engaging less with the other sides arguments, etc etc.

    It's a good microcosm of what's happening to the world at the moment I think

    If you're suggesting such a rule be instated, I for one wouldn't necessarily be opposed to the idea.

    5 of the most active threads are politics related, not sure that's a good idea.

    WTF, you make it sound like hitting your mid 30-ies is next up to the nursing home. Are all of your lives filled with these woes you are listing, or can we go with the good ole occams razor in this case - some of you are disposed to and revel in creating drama? Because that is something entirely unheard of among both current and former eve players. We never had ANY DRAMA when we fucked around in that shitshow, no siree.
