    yeah, agree with others tbf; right wing voters are simply more vocal. But that doesn't mean that it's a right wing forum overall I suppose.

    Edit: it would explain why arguements start so easily on here.

    Left wing: as most young people are leftys in my experience.

    If this were a site for 60+ year olds I would have said right wing

    Id say there is a main left wing slant. But thats because TSR is for young people, who traditionally are of a left wing disposition.

    Centre-left mainly. Ali is the only right wing-ish member I can think of. Most trolls are right-wing :p:

    The number of far right and right posters easily exceeds the number of far left and left posters. The centre-left and centre-right seems to be almost balanced, with the centre-right edging it slightly, especially on economic issues. Where social issues are concerned, the forum is mostly very liberal, which is what you would expect from a student forum.

    It's very right wing, the people who think it is left wing are just so right wing themselves that even normal right wing peeps seem like lefties

    This could very well be the only time I've ever agreed with you. Speaking about my own party, I've noticed that we're definitely right-wing on the economy, but on social issues, we're partially, left wing maybe centre. On drugs, we're far to the left of the green party.

    Pretty much spot on there.

    I don't understand how we can group TSR, into left or right wing. I mean doesn't each person hold a different view.

    The lefties think that TSR is right wing; the righties think that it is left wing...

    The truth is, we all blind to bias in world views which are similar to our own.

    Mainly right wing looking at the threads/replies, but maybe they are the only vocal ones.

    Edit: But then again I only get replies from right wing users since they oppose my left wing comments It's a tough call really.
    Exactly this.......whenever I say something slightly left wing , bam a bunch of right wing TSR users reply to it and generally I think people are more right wind as TSR seems to be very middle class from what I gather

    There's a very vocal left wing here.

    With people like Oswy being the somewhat reasonable left, and then the jokers like Teveth, who may infact be king of the Trolls. I'm never sure if he's serious or not.
