Apparently this site isn't for everybody, only privileged ones who are given information on how to get into "the club". WHERE you get this information is beyond me.

I tried to sign up and kept getting a message that a confirmation email was sent......one that I NEVER received. I used THREE DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESSES, and I never, NEVER received ONE confirmation email!!!

There is NO WAY to contact the admins, there is no help section or instructions for confirmation emails not working. There is NOBODY and NO WAY to contact anyone for help.

So, it's obvious you have to be "one of them" to get in. And after reading some of their bigoted, biased, toddler tantrums, it's a good thing I never got confirmed onto that juvenile site.

They aren't there for discussion, they are there for throwing toddler tantrums because they haven't gotten their way in politics.

DONT BOTHER!

Their left leaning trolls will cry to the mods constantly if they don't like what you post (Kind of like in real life which is why they're called snowflakes!) I received an infraction for calling leftists 'fools' once. Didn't even direct it towards anyone. But you will notice that if you are right leaning, only left leaning mods will give you infractions or ban you. Stay away from this forum! It is pure Aids! You will waste too much of your time pointlessly arguing with trolls with easily hurt feelings & racist members that blame everything on white people. After being there few years, it's only been the same people that post there every day anyway. And it only gets worse when election season comes around! Block the site & don't waste any of your sacred time! You will only get aggravated & discriminated against!

Unfair, nasty treatment, idiotic accusations, warnings, harassment by moderators. When they see that your idea makes perfect sense, but it's anti-mainstream, trolls come out and start just going over and over write upsetting comments, when you complain about it, moderators put a blind eye, simply because my post was against mainstream and the troll is pro-mainstream. When you start responding to a troll on a same way, you start get warnings, bans, etc. So, they use such nasty ways to shut up people, wear you out and stop expressing your thoughts. All this harassment have brought me to an obvious thought that all the moderators and trolls are on a payroll of mainstream barons, who pay them to suppress people who are against the US mainstream ideology.

Their rules are very confusing, foggy and can be easily applied against you. For a strange reason, you can't discus moderators on your posts, for example, you post can be removed simply saying "moderator acted unfairly against me". Sometimes they remove all your post, on which you've spent hours writing. And when they remove it, they don't say what exactly was wrong and don't send your an original. Of course, they do that, when it goes against US mainstream ideology.

Recently I had a problem with posting for no obvious reason. The site suddenly started to require some kind of "confirmation" and like something was sent to my email, although nothing was received. I was still able to write messages to moderators, though. I've sent the messages to 4 of them, politely asking for help.
None of them responded, expect one, which didn't help either. I kept trying it for a week. No help, nothing. Then, as everybody would, I get pissed and said "why are you doing it, it's better to talk and discuss the political issues, instead of fighting wars" and that they've started to do all of this shi*t first. And for just saying that I was permanently banned.

Here is their message, which definitely show that their moderators are nasty, mean, and evil people. They will do everything to piss you off, upset, etc, just because you are against United States MAINSTREAM:

Just look what was their response: "You have been banned for the following reason: Previous history/Threatening 'war' against this site or staff/threatening sock creation/Permabanned on an administrative level "

So, they purposely turned everything upside down. PoliticalForum.com, I won't shut up, I will become even more active. All this behavior simply shows that US mainstream and establishment is EXTREMELY weak, losing their positions and they will fight you by all theses nasty means, instead of battle via honest and fair discussion. This will make my confidence even more stronger.

PS. Then the US society screams why there are mass shootings, why there is an opioid epidemic, why people elected Trump, the above moderator's and troll's behavior clearly explain why...

They claim no personal attacks are allowed, but I was Trolled and Personally Attacted after every post. Eventually the Moderators tracked a presued me everyday to add up points to keep me from replying to the attacks, after the Mods would do nothing. If you want an example of whats allowed at this Forum; simply go to the Threads created on January 11th 2018, when the Trump called countries A-Holes. Look at the ALL Members who were allowed to post anything they wanted with ZERO Moderation.

I've personally noticed that this Forum's Moderators go silent when the Alt-Right start spewing their propaganda against anyone of color. A few of the Left Leaning members try to step in, but when they do it just gets increasing worse and worse. My guess is, there's a Good Old Boy networking going on in the bowels of this Forum. Please, don't take my word for it, log-on and you'll be able to immediately see it.

Board policy states no personal insults, period. That takes some getting used to, and I got some infractions for it, being I was used to more of a free-for-all thing.

The upside to that? Banning insults removes about half of conservative trolling. They've still got their conspiracy theories, but their raging is greatly reduced if they can't go off on insult tirades.

The downside? They go sort of passive-aggressive on you. Instead of saying "You're a child molester!", which is not permitted, they'll say "Libtards are all child molesters", which gets around the no-insult rule, being it doesn't insult a specific person. So you do the same thing back, all sides dancing around the no-insult rule.

Same as every board, it has more than its share of right-wing conspiracy theorists who want to tell us all about their own special bizarre universe. I think the mods are a bit too hands off there, being they should move most of it to conspiracy theory folders. However, at least you don't get banned here for the crime of destroying nutty right-wing conspiracy theories, which puts this board way, way above USMB. And that's all we liberals really need, to not be censored.

This site doesn't allow people to join. It never sends you a confirmation email, and there is no way to contact anybody to let them know this. I'm guessing it's because they want to discourage anybody from coming in and countering some of the bigotry and misinformation being posted by some of the people on the site. Don't waste your time here. There are better places to post.

Half of the Posters are Conspiracist or mentally ill. Many rejects from other boards. Threads in "Latest News"/News sections are very often Conspiracy links, followed 10 pages of responses, mostly from their fellow crazies. Probably only one in every 50 Conspiracy threads that are started, are moved to he Conspiracy section.
But even in Legit threads one has to wade through crap neck deep in insanity.
One Must assume the Hate/Loony Speech is APPROVED by the Owner, who may very well be one of them.

PF is well moderated, much more fairly than DP and usmb. The mods seem inobtrusive. They do insist on a modicum of politeness to one another. The posters' abilities on PF outweigh as group those on DP and usmb. All in all, PF is the right kind of forum that is well needed for nerds like us who inhabit the political discussion boards.

I actually left here because I was tired of my "vacations." You can't stand up for yourself. If you are attacked, and the mods dont think it's an attack, the post stays. If you reply, you get an infraction/ban. I went on to usmessageboard and have had no issues. It's a good forum but they treat you like children.

the great decisions about specially Europe,was made on this 3 cities.its obvious that USA,will never mixt in Europe military against Russia,esspecially the eastern countries and baltic states,the last meeting in Helsinky was also a oportunuty for DONALD TRUMP,to thanks russian for just say a song,WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM A FRIEND,JOE COCKER,.Also in ours days you dont submit a country by war,you do this simple way,you submit her economically see China,for example.The conclusion is better for Europe to love USA,but is muvh better to love Russia.

This is a site full of anti semitic; the mods probably are since they let it run free and remove/attack people who stand up to the anti semitis

Answer:

I'm having the same issue. Set up an account and it never sent a verification. No contact info and WHOIS gives some privacy service so there is NO WAY to contact anyone on the site.
