Surfer Magazine Bans Political Content From Forums

Surfer magazine, which is not necessarily known for controversial topics, is killing all political opinions in its forums. 

“IN AN EFFORT TO KEEP THE CONVERSATIONS SURF-RELATED, THE POLITICAL FORUM HERE HAS BEEN REMOVED,” the magazine states. “Let’s talk surf trips, surfboards, and the latest happenings from around this beautiful, blue planet. Thanks!”

All political posts will be deleted and accounts removed, it adds.  

Surfer has drawn over 1,000 pages to its politics forum, BeachGrit reports.  

“We want to continue to offer this forum as a surf-related area, and we know that bleeds into everyday life,” Surfer says. “With that being said, we will not have this forum devolve into a political area that is disrespectful of others and intentionally marginalizes or disrespects other groups/individuals.”

One possible fear is of AI. 

Recently, Surfer advertised for a person to monitor AI-driven content, BeachGrit continues.
