Thanks, nstoolman....Maybe  it's as you wrote....

 

But it's also true that it says big and clear "Italy's thread" and some time ago when I started this ( maybe a couple of years ago or longer)  I thought it was better to post thread here instead of  off-topics as many times in the thread I do post articles on Italian Politics.....But not only that ....also a lot of stuff concerning Italy in general ( travel, cuisine, various non-political news...)

 

 

Hope that makes sense......

Yes it does. We still all have the choice to not click on anything we don't want to read.

We also have a choice to open a thread and complain or compliment if we choose.

I personally don't open a lot of stuff I don't agree with.

I  also open up stuff and offer my opinion. 

These times are volatile politically and people do and say dumb things.
