Does it only exist as an outlet for some people to express their vitriolic and hyperbolic feelings?

I mean, I rarely see a legitimate point being made, and I rarely read a novel, workable, original, or meaningful point or post. Mostly of what I read is just an expression of frustration, hate, distortion, or something similar. Some of it is borderline bigoted/racist/xenophobic, and most of it is so incredibly inane, ridiculous, misleading, untrue, and/or offensive it's sickening.

Here's a challenge - post something original, productive, intellectual, or don't post anything at all. Because this forum makes me sick to share a country with some of you. And it's a pathetic reflection on this fine website and messageboard.

Before answering anything, tell me where in the US you live.

Well Anchorless, why don't you tell us where you live before you go barking orders at everyone - it appears whatever utopia you live in the illegals haven't reached it yet.

If one lives in the Southwest (New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, So. California), the illegal immigration issue is of prominent importance as illegal immigration: has caused an dramatic increase in violent crime, has clogged hospitals and emergency rooms, has caused the decline in quality of neighborhoods, overcrowded schools, raised taxes for those in these states to pay for the costs of illegals

Those in states not impacted by illegal immigration "don't get it" and cannot see where there is a problem

The only point I can think of, is a place to focus all of the intense revulsion and antipathy, and not have it spread throughout the other forums.

Nothing constructive comes from this forum, CD should just delete it.

I live in CA, and don't agree with the hate movement going on in here.

Well then to all the NIMBYs I would say if you don't play the game, you don't get to make the rules.

So you are saying that if we happen to live in a state that isn't overrun by illegals then we don't ge to comment on you complaining about how bad the influx of immigrants has become in your backyard and how bad you want them out?

Who are the NIMBYs here?

This is the observation I've made as well. It's just an unmoderated concentration of hate. How productive, though

I mean, what do y'all hope to accomplish? It's a gaggle of people who reassure each others' frustrations and emotions and see who can be the loudest and most obscene.

I would hope this forum could engage in more meaningful debate rather than being a soundboard for the same tired rhetoric. And the responses this particular thread has received is strong evidence that this probably won't be the case.
