What makes DC a cesspool?

A lighter topic for the weekenders among us:

What makes this forum a cesspool, in your eyes?

We often have people on CP claim that this forum is a cesspool, and they "don't even look in there."

What's keeping people out? What's wrong with this forum?

Thats short and sweet but pretty accurate.

If you like anything that Obama has tried to do, you are immediately labeled and belittled as some kind of moonbat, liberal extreme left communist, socialist big government idiot.

The Right seem to dominate this forum and I fall somewhere in the middle so its difficult to discuss topics without having to wade through all the name calling.

There are some very smart people on both sides of the isle in here which is why I still come in here but it would be nice to have discussions without all the nonsense.

Well to be honest, I don't consider calling something socialist, communist or big govt to be a form belittling. It's calling a spade a spade. Some just don't like those policies. A label is just a form of shorthand for an idea or set of ideas. It just needs to be accurate.

accurate. You are the farthest thing from accurate in this subsection.

I don't consider calling someone "detached from reality" (due to an inability to decipher facts from satire) a form of belittling.

Depends if they really are. Both sides call that one on each other when the other's views are just far from theirs. It seems the lefties use such things more from my observation. That and "crazy."

I think the better way to interpret the question is "What makes DC more of a cesspool than the Lounge?" I don't think your criticism is a distinguishing factor.

The tone, the mean-spiritness, discussing posters instead of issues. Even if you don't start that way, you become what you try to resist as a matter of survival. But some are quite mean.

However, some people just cannot deal with politics due to disagreement and probably avoid it for that reason.

Sometimes people make themselves the issue. Such as when they post unsubstantiated BS and refuse to even try to back it up.

Example: More votes than registered voters. Some posters keep repeating stuff like that. When other posters ask for some proof, they go silent. Until they say it again.
