These trolls are NOT here to share knowledge with an open mind. This blessing of protecting their freedom of speech is valiant in an older context. We are at war with an evil and vengeful force that will destroy everything you have fought for. And you are letting them have a platform when they have no desire to listen to our side. They have not bled for our country. Most don’t pay taxes and those that have money, have manipulated the government to fund them. They seek to destroy our country and you allow it. You must change your conceptual framework for the good of this forum and see evil for what it is.No one told you "my way or the highway". You have options, exercise them. Personally I do not care what you choose to do as long as you abide by the rules. So you are the one who should grow up. I never understood nor will I ever understand why a personal attack on anyone instead of attacking their views and supporting your views with facts through discussion is somehow the superior solution to a disagreement. IF I YELL LOUD ENOUGH I WILL WIN!!!
I am not a liberal but I will not stop a liberal member from posting his valid opinion simply because it bothers you, whether I disagree with it or not.
No, I questioned why banning a liberal was in the interest of anyone. No one here threatened you with a ban. You were simply told that if you do not like what a liberal post, use the ignore feature. If that is not sufficient for you, then no one is stopping you from leaving if that is what you want to do. I have no superpowers to keep you here. You want a breakdown.....since I have been here I would have to estimate the approximately 30% of the membership has moderate to liberal views but simply do not post because of the biased responses they will receive to any open discussion they want to start. For someone who wants to ensure free speech, you seem to be doing your best to ensure that this free speech only applies to your views and not someone's else's views. And if it doesn't, then you want to be able to call them names like a bully in a playground. And the only reason for that is because you do not like them and you want them to leave. How freaking pathetic is that?
I spent 20 years of my life defending the rights of EVERYONE to speak their minds. I will not limit a liberal view just like I will not limit a conservative view. Unlike you, I do not get to choose whether I agree or not and erase what I don't like. I only get to determine if the post is valid and should stand based on the rules.
And all I am saying is that his right to his freedom of speech is no less valid than your right to your freedom of speech. But name calling is juvenile and a rules violation. So why don't you leave it alone and stop trying to regulate speech of a member that you clearly despise? You call him a troll because he is a liberal. And if he called you a troll for being a (fill in the blank) that am I supposed to limit your speech because he does not like you?
I will not let this forum devolve into a play ground where the loudest and biggest bully gets his way and tries to ramrod only his views of what should be. Not going to happen.
Neither did I. But that does not change what you are trying to do. You are trying to justify your way to force me to limit a members speech that you do not like. The same speech that you demand you have a right to espouse.
Most of the guys....does that mean the ten most extreme members that want their view only and no one else's?
1. Use the ignore feature.
2. Stay out threads that will ruffle your feathers.
3. If you do decide to post responses to any post don't come crying to me that a response upset you and you want the troll to go away.
IGNORE IGNORE IGNORE. It your right so use it.
But I do have one superpower left.....closing the freestyle room to all discussion. Then it would be ME limiting speech and I will not do that and then the only discussion would be about FN guns....which is what this forum is supposed to be about.
Or maybe I can make Glowing_Plasma a Moderator and really piss you off......
