Re: closed thread about uce
As gnush asked in this thread, could an atheist edition be added to the forums?
IMO it matters little if threads or posts contain religious dogma, the heading defines the intent. As would a section labeled Ubuntu Atheist Edition.
I have no interest in either section. Only that the forums remain neutral with respect to politics and religion, as both are often based in opinion and emotion. There's plenty of other sites available for discussing these topics. But in my mind the question becomes one of ruling. For example, is it permissible to have a section for UCE and not for any other Ubuntu religious based distro?
I would question if the UCE varies so significantly that existing Ubuntu derivative or DE questions don't apply? Or, is it simply that the UCE has historically been a part of the forums (as implied)? If it's the latter, then perhaps it time to consider the perception issue - now that the forums have matured.
As for members not having a problem with the UCE, that questions if a section on any other Ubuntu religious based distro would be found unacceptable by members/staff. Logic might suggest that the forums remain neutral and not have any religious or political content or headings. They could alter the name of that section to "Religious Distros" and permit all Ubuntu religious based distros to participate. I believe there's a Ubuntu Satanic Edition that could be added. Might be a very slippery slope.
