This board is the BEST political forum out there, especially since anything Conservative these days is redefined as "racist" "hateful" and/or "White Supremacist." NO dissent allowed is the motto of the communist left controlled internet, mass media, and entertainment industries' as well as our learning institutions. This forum is one of the few places left where actual debate takes place and it's not an echo chamber "equality."
Unfortunately a lot of communist leftists have left bad reviews here just to dissuade anyone from showing any interest in it. That's mainly because they cannot get someone banned when they've had their proverbial a** handed to them when debating current or historical events. The only way the left survives is by silencing the right, it's ALWAYS been that way. There is nothing new under the sun, literally.
Anyways if you're looking for variety and true diversity of opinion this is the place for you.

I love the board, I can say just about anything I want. They allow users to use just about any words they like except for a few of the worst ones, but you can still get your point across without them. A lot of leftist moonbats don't like it because their arguments are usually completely debunked, their lies are exposed, and their sycophantic zealotry of all things anti-American are ridiculed mercilessly. They can't get away with trolling the forum with cut/pasted media matters agitprop like they do on every other forum. It's nothing like the Fox News Comment section where they flood the board with asinine drivel all day, on USMB they are the ones being ridiculed by the majority of people, even those with no real loyalty to any political perspective.

Meuster, a faux conservative in reality a soy boy leftist. The other mods protect his girly boy tush.
Stay away from this $#*!hole forum. Your info is not safe and AVG warns you when you log in. Your banking info is at risk. Flags all over the place. Data mining is rampant

If you don't mind getting death threats, this this place is for you.
Example: I hope someone you love dies.
If you are a right winger on this site, then this kind of rhetoric is OK. But if you are the least bit critical of Trump, you are banned for pointing out he is an unindicted co conspirator in multiple felonies. This is a site that calls evolution and EVAPORATION wild liberal theories. Not a joke.
So if you are looking for a laugh, this is the place to go. If you are serious, not so much.

I've been a member of USMB for 8 years. I'm not a charter member, but I do see things. I think there are some guidelines for message boards and forums on the internet, and moderators do not have a choice but to stop some issues such as racism and stalking, so it is not much of a board that welcomes either. There are laws about the internet use against threatening other posters, which is the #1 reason for people being banned. I saw a banned notice on one member and sourced out his last 10 posts. Holy cow, the poster threatened the life of another poster 4 times before he was even caught breaking that rule--no life-threatening of other posters. I find it a well-run board. And it's a good place to learn the do's and don't's of political discussion if one doesn't know them. Oh, and I'm sorry to see people get banned, and am happy to see them come back if they can let stuff go.

This message board is great entertainment. There's one or two decent posters but it's more or less trolls trolling trolls on everything...it gets rather funny.

USMB is just a front for Trump cultist. They are another arm of Trump's political hit squad. DO NOT GO THERE!
Review by Welove Kosakoff1 year ago
I was permabanned by an Admin that is no longer even on the board for complaining about a moderator who is no longer a mod on the board abusing her modding authority
Since then people have joined and pretended to be me, People have lied about me, people talk about me on the board when I can't defend myself, including just today the self fame lead mod is talking $#*! about me while keeping me from posting in return.
The moderators spend more time chasing posters they don't like then they actually do moderating the $#*! show of a site..

This is a haven for sock puppets & trolls allowed by moderators to flame topics in order to garner more post which makes the ownership more money $ which is spent for further hate propaganda. Owner never reports the income, nor donation, nor value of the web site to the IRS and doesn't even have required by law Business License ID to identify the ownership of the Business. For all we know this could be owned by Russians or terrorist using it to garher data & harass Americans and cause division.

I was a member for over six years. I was recently permanently banned for reasons unknown to me, because once you're banned, there is no way to see the determining "offense".
Moderators heavily favor right-wing trolls. Willhaftawait, a so-called moderator, stalked me and violated me for posts that right-wing Trump-suckers post day in and day out with no repercussions. The bias against liberals is so blatant it's not even funny. Threads critical of Trump are moved to conspiracy forums or "The Rubber Room". Right-wingers threaten violence against liberals, violate board "rules", and constantly troll with little to no punishment.
Oh yeah, there are a lot of closeted gay conservatives there. They are obsessed with gay sex.
It's a shame, because it used to be a good board. I guess I should have kissed ass with some monetary donations.

The new senior mod is out to get all those that he has stalked. He is also in the middle of a hostile takeover to implement his way of being a dyck.
Review by Junho1 year ago
I recently had a technical issue as I thought my account was deleted after not posting for a long time because the userid I thought I created before kept rejecting. So I reregistered, commented and even made a small donation. After making the donation, I was blocked for BOT, spam and multiple users. Yet I only by accident with no intent to engage in mischief this situation occurred, and sent a response e-mail to the moderator explaining what happened but apparently I was ignored. After all, if I were trolling why would I post substantive comments and make a donation? Well I certainly learned a lesson when it comes to the cold and callous ways of individuals who claim to be fair and understanding hosts of a message board. So I sucked it up and moved on. Also instead of regretting that small donation, I'll look it at being well worth the highly relevant commentary I was able to post. Also the one star is just for being able to post this feedback.

This site has special rules to protect pedophiles and tears into anybody who opposes the rape of children. It stalks posters who oppose child rape. It mocks those who oppose child rape. It taunts people by indicating that the indignation caused by the rape of children is funny to them and then it bans people for opposing the rape of children.
Shame on any and all those associated with this sickness.
Review by Xarlos1 year ago
I've been sparsely posting on this site for 12 years. (recently briefly active again) One just HAS to leave after repeated attempts to find sanity. This is the dumping ground for banned Troll rejects fromother message boards who are much better moderated. Behavior is condoned here not allowed anywhere else since non-Moderated Yahoo mbs.
A few even called it 'Stormfront light", but that website has much more sober/sincere posting than USMB, and would NOT allow the juvenile Trollling that goes on USMB every minute. SF knows alot of outsiders read it, and they wouldn't tolerate the embarrassing childish clownery/trolling on USMB.
One simply can't even post in the Environment section (Climate) without being hounded off, WITH management's silent complicity. The Two mods who post in the section are Warming deniers and condone the Rampant Trolling there. (Flacaltenn, and the dim bulb 'westwall'). Trolls, Namely skookserasbil, jc456, Billy_bob, etc, mock every serious sci poster there.
With great effort, and after four or five reports to specific senior mod, I got Climate Clown/Troll skookerasbil banned for 5 days. He came right back doing the Same thing.
I reported it to same mod, and he got merely thread-banned.
That's right DE-escalating infraction penalties!
Any other board would at least double his ban time to 10 days or Perma-ban him.
He does it Every day. No content trolling posts with 3 or 4 Juvenile baiting emoticons.
No adult posts like that.
I've had enough.
I'm taking another year off from you Clowns.
One can put up a serious OP/thread starting with a WSJ or PNAS (proceedings Natl Acad Science) article and get overwhelmingly "Funnied", so that that is what one sees/is visible when looking at the section.. and others in 'Politics' section etc.
An example from today of the unbelievably low quaility 'discussion'.
The OP puts up a Washington Post article. He gets overwhelming "Funnied"(11) by Right Wingers. (one can see this looking at the section overall)
The first response (from a Rightie Troll) is nothing but a Picture of a young man wearing a tinhat, and it gets 5 Positive (no neg) clicks from the other RW Trolls.
This is just typical. And on it goes with stupid "Screw Yous" and emoticons. It's the NRA Junior High.
Please keep reading the thread if you can. They're 90% cheap-shotting Clowns.
The board is overwhelming Right Wing TROLLS.
Who just destroy/mock any serious opposing view.
one can go two full pages after a serious OP and see nothing but mocking Tea Party Thugs calling everyone else 'libtard'.
There is NO help from mods, Zero.
I posted a serious thread in 'Politics' and was Mocked into oblivion, so one amateur mod moved my serious thread to the 'Badlands.' After hours of debate, threats/counter-threats, I got it moved back to 'politics.'
IOW, it was so badly Trolled, I was blamed for a Flaming topic and it was flushed!
This board doesn't want to give up any posters/pageviews as it is filled with ads, and that effects their bottom line. Also doesn't want to dump Paying Trolls.
As far as I can see NO one gets banned, as trolling is the pastime of 30-50% of the posters BOARD-WIDE.
I see a mgt person responded here to "sourgrapesBannees", but that's hardly the problem, (they must have shot someone). The problem is the board is 50% Unbanned trolls, and mods who know NOTHING about their jobs. Nada.
PS: Should any rep from USMB wish to discuss the issue, just PM me at the board.
NONE of you have any idea what you're doing, as obvious destructive (even insane) behavior is on view all day, every day, and in the major sections Especially.
I've posted on 100 mbs in 18 years, and YOU are the most Troll-filled of any I have seen.
Review by KatcandoAnnapolis Gebele2 years ago
This message board is terrible.Do you want to find threads on climate science denial, evolution denial, and threads claiming vast conspiracies of the world's scientists? Why look in the science section, of course.
If you post a thread in the science section debunking any of that nonsense...it is moved to the conspiracy section within minutes.
Looking for a thread describing a vast conspiracy to hide illegal activity by Democrats? Why, you'll find thousands of them in the politics section.
Looking for a thread vaguely speculating about a cover-up of corruption of the Trump circle? Scroll down and look in the conspiracy section. Even then, that thread has a 50/50 chance of having survived deletion in the first hour.
What is happening here is not necessarily right wing nutballs grooming their little echo chamber, but probably more the idea of site moderation being based on who has given the most money to the site, regarding both users and mods.
Either way, don't waste your time, unless you are an intellectual deviant looking for nodding sycophants. In that case, you will LOVE it, there.
Review by Hadassah2 years ago
This site is like many "political discussion" forums. They have "rules" but do not enforce them at all against those who have similar and obvious hate-filled and bigoted views. If you enjoy hateful rhetoric this is the site for you. Openly bigoted, misogynistic, racist remarks fly constantly. Attacks on children and victims of crime, as well as personal attacks, occur at all times with zero moderation, as the moderators themselves are responsible for many of these atrocious remarks/comments.
Review by Jonatahn Saintard2 years ago
I like the format, easy to c&p on. Good graphics. But the board bites the big one. Reminds me of the early AOL boards. Intelligence free zone with a huge contingent of the bat$#*! crazy, vile and frankly, ABUSIVE. The perfect message board in the TRUMP era.
I've been parked here for a couple of weeks, I thought I'd just hit a 'cantankerous' period. I think it is a permanent state of being.
(Plus, I think there might be Russian trolls among us)

WestWall leads the pack- what a prick. Beware not to make this moron mad ! A bunch of old Right Wing geezers refuse to be proven wrong. FACTS be damned. Delete your posts if they don't like it or bury them in another forum. Democrats and Independents post at your own risk.
Review by AdeleW Kabak2 years ago
Even if you post within the "Rules", if there's a mod with a hardon for you, you will be subject to unnecessary scrutiny. Kind of like a condo board, HOA, or some pissant little city council. Little fish, little pond, the only power they have is on an anonymous board. Sniveling twat.
Review by SimonD Suviola2 years ago
It is not moderation when the moderators choose poster to ban then they start building a case finding "violations" by tracking and following the poster whenever the poster is active.
This the "moderation" that is used at USMB. Its effective for this reason...if you go to the rule page you will note that after each paragraph outlining a specific rule there is this phrase "at the moderators discretion".
It means that even if you in reality broke no rule and you stayed within all posted written guidelines that the moderators can still say you broke rules and guidelines even though objectively it is not so . At their discretion you did break rules .
Go to their Rule page and check whether this is so or not. The Moderators are Uniformly Right wing ...they go after Liberals
Review by Cyderman2 years ago
USMB is by far the most broadly tolerant of all the politically oriented message boards I've ever found. While extremely offensive nonsense is not tolerated the moderators on USMB permit the free exercise of opinions and they never impose their authority on participants who maintain reasonable positions. The board is widely versatile and is very well maintained. The negative reviews I've been reading are assuredly written by left-wingers who cannot tolerate the level of freedom of expression permitted by USMB Administrators.
Review by BrickJnr2 years ago
The liberals stalk anyone who doesn't hate Trump. If you try to defend Trump you'll be called a troll and reported as a sock puppet. When the moderators get tired of seeing all the trolling, they ban the victim.
