I suppose, but I don't really like it's consideration when we're talking about 'gelling'.
Maybe you were meaning more in terms of "see how you gel", I guess.
It's standard, yeah, but not very good overall, I think.
I mean, otherwise friendly people who can get along on all other matters, happily chat away about ,say, Skyrim mods, will hate eachother just over politics.
It's kind of detrimental to a community. I do understand why so many ban politics as a result. It's a divisive factor.
Near as I can tell I didn't do anything wrong besides piss off some radical lefties who think it is okay to assault people on account of speaking my opinions in a political discussion thread.
Was there more to it than that?
