so umm, how long is my timeout

This is something like day 5 suspended from the Politics forum, for correcting a poster that the best cars aren't made in Germany by Europeans.

I understand the rule against 'fixed' posts, and recognize it's importance - however you can't seriously argue that my post was anything beyond a simple joke. Anyway, an email or something would have been nice.

carry on

The politics forum doesn't allow jokes?

Politics forum is a joke.

"Jokes are the path to the dark side. Jokes leads to anger; anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering."

I thought the "political exile" tag was only to be used in conjunction with the three strikes rule?

"Fixed" posts are pretty lame and a waste to go back to find the unaltered quote so I don't have a problem with a rule that forbids them, but it'd make more sense to have it forum-wide, not limited to politics.
