According to me Politics is good. Only the thing is that the politicians are bad and does all the corruption and many other things. Are you all with me or against me?

Since my opponent stated "Politics is good" rather than "Politics are good", It can be assumed that he is talking about a singular object.

The single object my opponent is talking about is obviously the "politics" forum.

/politics/ is not a good forum because it easily has one of the lowest human to idiot ratios of all the forums.

Coming second to /religion/, /politics/ (while still used by a few intelligent users) has become stuffed full of people who wish they knew what they were talking about.

I wish my opponent best of luck.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro referred to "politicians" which means he was referring to electoral politics, no the forum. However, Pro had the burden of proof and made no case. Forfeit loses conduct.
