I can't tell if this is a serious thread or a casual chat about crappy TV.

it was srs, not that any reds would actually post giving a legitimate reason for closing threads that belong in off topic, that are posted in off topic, and aren't heated/vulgar topics.

Meh, it's Riot's prerogative to arbitrarily close any thread they want to on their forums.

Free speech is about severely limiting the ability for the government to censure your speech. It has nothing to do with your speech being restricted in a private forum.

Though closing political threads is pretty typical. If anything the mods are quite lenient towards questionable topics on this forum. I once got a 7 day ban from a blizzard off-topic forum for merely explaining why some might think the bible can motivate harmful actions, without actually putting forth the argument myself or being the slightest bit disrespectful about it. I didn't open that thread either, just posted in a thread about religion.

We actually have strong opinions, and are engaging in strong candidate advocacy -- in this case, in favor of the Cho'gath/Kog'Maw ticket. Riot Games believes that instead of voting for the lesser evil, you should vote for Cho'gath/Kog'Maw 2012. Valoran deserves a greater evil, and I think this will be clear at the debates.
