    Dear everyone,

    Due to recent events, it was decided that we will heavily restrict political discussions on MDL. One reason for this can be seen in this thread:
    https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...er-with-mexico-can-stop-the-immigrants.72942/

    I've decided to delete some posts that were completely inappropriate. We had everything: antisemitism, white supremacy, eugenics and tons of other bulls**t (excuse my harsh words).

    I've given myself 24 hours to decide and now I've come to a conclusion. Of course, the whole MDL staff team is involved.

    Ongoing political discussions will be left open, as long as a good discussion style is maintained. If not, we will close the thread, issue bans and/or take other measures.

    So:
    1) No more throwing crap at each other.

    2) Eugenics won't solve any problem.

    3) If you think killing people will solve problems and that eugenics is the way to a better world, ask yourself if you would agree to euthanizing yourself and/or your family. If you disagree, you maybe see the problem.

    4) Same is valid for any white supremacy or other alt-right fears.

    5) Yes, I know about free speech, but I also believe that free speech doesn't mean everybody has to provide a platform for everything. There are more than enough forums on the internet where you can advocate pretty much everything. MDL is a technical, not a political forum. Keep that in mind. We only tolerated religious and political discussions until now.
