I was thinking of having baby back ribs tonight for supper, but after reading this thread I kinda lost my appetite for pork!

I would say your both right, as people react to others differently.

I think it's unfair to me that I have to be nice to a troll who has no intention of having a serious debate. Trolls need to be thankful there are rules that prevent me from speaking freely.

If I was to wager, I would say doing nothing to discourage trolls who constantly repeat themselves, hi-jack a members post with strawman arguments, telling the other person what their own point was, prosecuting their troll points no matter what the topic of discussion is, and rarely ever giving others the respect of addressing their point, would contribute to the demise of boards more than a "free fire zone".

And I think you'd be voted the Most Popular to be on it. Not that you don't debate well, you just hang a left-hand turn every *cough* now and then and get a death grip on one subject.

But other than that, I would think the whole purpose of "debating" is to convince one another that *our* point of view is the correct one, and to educate minds as to why that is. Sometimes that is done best by repetition.

By the same token I don’t expect to win over Mikeyy or Foundit66 to a rational conservative point of view either. Arguing with these people allows others to see the differences between the points of view and chose a side. That is the purpose of countering these people.
We debate for different points and reasons.. Don't we?

I told you exactly how and it's 100% effective every time out.

Looking back on it, I probably wouldn't have created the thread if I knew Vague didn't have the stones to police his mod team. They are really getting carried away over there trying to tell people how to think and act. You cannot refer to Israel in these terms; you cannot dis-respect the recently died; you cannot question mod-team integrity; etc...

It's kind of ironic, but as much bad blood history 'redd and I have for each other, I have to admit, he was one of their better moderators. And I let them know that after he had his fall from grace.

My fall came after (19,000 posts in the span of 5 years) I ramped up the anti-Israeli talk. Over an f-ing question! A question deemed inappropriate. How fascist is that?

I miss TOT!
