post #9466 of 15037
I miss when teh mods would edit a thread title to read something like, I want my MOM TO GET BUTTRAPED FOR SWEARING IN A THREAD TITLE to change her clothes. Seems a bit hypocritical especially since dudes use gratuitous vulgarity which frequently shows up on the front page. I say either ban swearing altogether or let the heathens run amok.

Speaking of vulgarity - you've got Arthur PE graphically describing karate-chopping a pregnant screaming deer to death as his dogs rip out the deer's fetus. Then claiming he owns a necklace of NVA ears. Kinda going beyond the trolling. And this is on top of his usual homophobia and physical threats to other members. He's far too fun to ban, but I think a timeout would let him relax a bit - he's really escalated in the past week or two. If Javyn can get a timeout for stupidity, while never threatening members, making homophobic posts, or random graphic descriptions of violence, I think a timeout is in order for APE.

Also, I think when he posts in the CEsspool, it clears out a thread of the smart liberals. I think we have a lot on this forum, but, if I were a liberal, I would probably not post in a thread where I can so easily (and wrongly) be subject to a tu quoque argument. And without the liberals, the CEsspool becomes even worse.

Just my two cents.

I dont think a timeout for APE would help, but I do think it better for the forum if he were banned from CE.

what about that move where a poster gets put on universal ignore or something, so he keeps on going but no one can see it?

NVA = North Vietnamese Army (i.e. the regular army, as opposed to the guerrilla warfare of the Viet Cong).

Agree to all of the above. Up until recently I overlooked or just held my nose and posted anyway - but more and more these days I read some threads and posts and think - No, I'm not sure I want to jump into that.

Another comment, something that's been with us forever but seems worse now: borrowed knowledge. We've always had the posters with mad Google-fu skillz, but precious little in the way of actual experience or thoughtful analysis. Or maybe they just make stuff up. I don't know, and it doesn't matter. When challenged on their assertions they double-down and turn ITG.

I've certainly taken positions that were off-the-cuff, or not-well-considered and been deservedly hammered for them. Sometimes, I even change my mind and accept that I didn't know as much as I'd thought. Believe me, at 41 this is not very easy to accept, but such is life. It's okay to back down and change your mind. This isn't a contest.

This is a good point. Last week I made an off the cuff snarky remark that was factually incorrect. I promptly admitted it as such and was harangued for admitting I was wrong. This is sort of funny as the same type of poster harangues me for never admitting I'm wrong...however I digress.

I intend to attempt to make it easier for people to admit they're wrong. I will be far more diplomatic in pointing out someone does not have their facts straight. If folks want to double down on stupid that will be up to them.

I find it amusing how hossoso periodically comes in here on a rampage and then disappears as quickly as he returns - like a swarm of locusts.

lol

 

I especially like the condescending back handed BS by flmountingaman about 'smart liberals'

like the average is not smart and he is the diviner of such things...jesus, class-A douche

 

perhaps hunting small pigs with dogs and stabbing them with rusty rebar is more appropriate for the genteel
