    OK guys, I just wanna step in here to say that, while discussing politics is fine, please try not to bash eachother or attack eachother just for having different political opinions. No lines have been crossed yet but I think we're straying dangerously close to doing so. Less accusing X side of being to blame for Y thing, please.

    We've had to make two inthreads to try to get you guys to stop flaming eachother. We've been very lenient and none of you have gotten any warnings from this, although several of you probably should have. This is because we understand that politics is a touchy subject and tempers can flare. HOWEVER. We will NOT allow any more flaming in this thread. We've locked it for now to give you all some time to cool off. Maybe in a day or two we'll reopen it, but if another flame war erupts, this thread will be shut down for good and warnings handed out.

    This is your final inthread warning. Please be more respectful of your fellow posters in the future, whether you agree with them or not, and whether you're on the same political side or not. And please keep any future replies to this thread in line with the actual topic (which is "American Presidential Election 2020" and NOT "the left/the right/whoever are all racist bastards" or any other blanket statements, please and thank you).

    Hey everyone!

    After dealing with all the reports we have received with this thread, I am happy to announce that this thread will be unlocked. There are a few things that we need to point out and to remember.

    READ BELOW BEFORE POSTING

    - Reminder: All Bulbagarden rules still apply. No exceptions.

    - Failure to follow any of these rules may result in warning points and in some cases, automatic bans through point accumulation or through the warnings themselves.

    - If you see a post that you think breaks the rules, use the report feature found below of the post and explain to why you think it breaks the rules. Don't engage with that user, let the mods handle it. We won't punish you if you report in good faith.

    - If you are tired of seeing a user's post or you don't want a user to see your posts anymore, feel free to use the ignore feature. See this guide to learn how to use it.

    - Discussions can get heated. Address the user's points, not the user themselves and do not assume bad faith.

    - Remember, this is a thread about American Presidential Election 2020 thread. If it's not closely related to the 2020 Elections in the United States, it most likely doesn't belong here.

    If discussions get out of control again, the moderators or staff will close this thread and other threads relating to politics indefinitely. Consider this as your final in-thread warning.

    Happy discussing!
