I do not want to comment much on election-y things, and have largely tried to stay away from doing so. There is pretty much no way for anything to be NOT seen as politicking. Obviously, anyone running for something has a bias in their own favor, and productive dialogue mid-polling is incredibly difficult, at least for someone who's running.

That said, apparently this is an issue. And issues need addressing, no matter what season it is.

So:

If anyone feels harassed by anyone else on this site:

First, you can always contact airmax. I would normally say "Or myself", because I am still technically the president, but given the election season, this needs separation. (You may, of course, feel free to contact me about anything, but given the season, there's no good way to say that).

If it's election-related: Tell the person, obviously, to quit bugging you. But since generally, if someone feels harassed, they've probably already DONE that, contact the respective candidate. I really really hope I can speak for ALL campaigns in saying that NOBODY SHOULD BE HARASSED. But of course, no candidate can possibly know for certain everything that's happening. If it's some third-party supporter, the candidate may not have as much influence as they'd like, and may refer you to airmax or may contact airmax themselves.

No one should be harassed, for any reason.

I grant that I made this post, and therefore ill motives may be assumed by opposite sides--as I said, there's pretty much no way to not come across as politicking during such a heated political time.

But hopefully I'm the poster only because a post can only be written by 1 person. I don't think this should be a strange or difficult call for other campaigns to make, nor do I want anyone to read anything into this. I hope that other campaigns will post their agreement with this, because harassment really shouldn't be a wedge or campaign issue, it should just be a common decency issue, and I am optimistic that all candidates think that harassment is bad--thus, e'rybody should agree to this and it should be a null issue inasmuch as the presidential candidates are wholly against it and will root it out.

Bumped because this should not be a partisan issue.

If anyone wants to argue the point, they can do so here. But this should not be a partisan issue, and if a thread is unavoidably partisan, it isn't a good thread to address this issue.

I hate bumping. I mean, I do it if I feel like there's a sufficient reason. But I hate doing it.
