I know the SDMB is reluctant to include new fora on a whim, But I respectfully ask that you guys take this into consideration.
When I’m reading the news, checking the debates, reading other online sources, there are many times I think “I’d like to talk about this with the other Dopers”, but it doesn’t really fit any forum*. It’s not pitworthy, it’s not for GQ, sometimes it’s something for GD or the two noise fora**. A Current Affairs forum could include a lot of stuff dispersed all over the Dope. Especially the RO threads.
*Which is also why I think we have the RO threads in the Pit
**MPSIMS and IMHO (I can’t never figure out the difference between these two)
