The Title says it all! What has happend to Survival Monkey? We are more divided today then ever before, and the daily threads and replies are really divisive, so much so that many members have simply un-plugged or simply don't hang out here any more! I know most of the Political crap threads ARE survival related, but they sure don't help us at all! Every day I see the same crap threads, same crap replies, and inevitably ends up being the same crap ending! Nothing good ever comes out of any of it, and now it's pretty much taken over the Monkey! I have been very close to pulling the plug and simply surfing the older threads on actual survival stuff, useful stuff instead of the mind numbingly divisive stuff we seem to have now Frankly, I'm sick to my stomach with all the political crap, and would just as soon forget about it all, especially when logging in and seeing yet another thread about the doom and gloom and insessent attacks on our rights! Yes, I know we all need to keep watch on this stuff, but come on, the near constant threads on the latest doom and gloom isn't healthy, and it certainly isn't in keeping with what this sight is all about! Further more, When we have members bent on continuing to post these threads, and then other members who reply in very derisive manor, it sure makes the sight a sad place, and certainly adds to the numbers of members who have called it quits here, which makes me sad, I miss those good folks, I miss the good fruitful discussions with those of like mind, as well as those with a differing view of the world, and unique experiences to share and add to the Monkey Tree of Knowledge! I want my Monkey back! We are all aboard this sinking ship called 'Murica, we all learn to swim together or we drown separately, THAT is what brings us all together, and lets pass on the crap for a while!
