You may do so, but as always when a public figure dies, we ask that you act with tact and grace. If it appears that you were just waiting for this occasion so that you could post vitriol, you will be banned. If you have a harsher take on McCain’s political legacy, there will likely be no shortage of opportunities to discuss that in the future.

EtcetEraThread 'FIFA World Cup 2018 |OT4| All according to Lukaku
Red Text Alright guys we generally allow more room for banter in sports threads and let things slide that would normally be actioned in any other context. To use the England-Colombia match as an example, posts and posts alike were reported and rejected. Recently however we’ve been seeing a trend of team supporters brigading the report system to target fans of other teams. If our current, looser approach to this thread isn’t working, we will have to moderate this thread more strictly and come down harder on all banter on all sides. Consider this a last warning to chill out and relax before the hammers start falling.

Red Text For the sake of extra clarity: Up until this point we’ve let a lot of stuff slide that we normally wouldn’t outside a sports thread. Starting from this thread onwards, we’re going to start moderating that stuff more tightly. Generalizations and insults that appear to apply to entire countries rather than individual players and teams will get actioned. We’re not going back to action every post in every previous thread that would’ve banned under these new guidelines. Everyone has now been fairly warned.
