Do you feel as if there are cliques here?

I think there used to be and that they have mostly dispersed, members leaving and so on.

Do you feel welcome to speak your mind here?

I notice a few ladies that frequently talk to one another but I don't know that I would use the word "clique" to describe them. I don't mind responding to posts at all if I know of something I think I could add to a discussion or a question. I don't like making my own posts. Idk why I just have no real desire to.

I respond if the topic is of interest. I do not worry so much about the other stuff.

Not cliques necessarily. Not in here. People tend to relate better to the other people who share their political views or who take the same stance on controversial topics, but I don't think that makes them a clique.

There's a bunch of conservative members who always defend eachother and always have to deflect a post that reflects negatively on conservatism or christianity

I know there are women here that I greatly respect so probably spend more time responding to their posts. But I haven't seen any real 'cliques' lately where many women gang up on another. I know they used to be here and I see the individual members but not the groups anymore.

 I don't think there's cliques in here.  I do feel free to speak my mind here.  I know not everyone is going to like what I have to say, and that's ok.  It doesn't bother me.

WE finally got enough conservative members that haven't been scared off. I know many conservatives that couldn't handle some of the cliques that used to be in this group. Talk about ganging up on people. When I started in this group, it was miserable for conservatives. I almost left a couple of times but I am stubborn enough, I decided those liberals weren't running me off. Some of the nastier liberals left. Many that are still here aren't nearly as bad or as toxic.

I know that there used to be but most of them seem to be broken up. It is not nearly as bad in here as it used to be :)
