IP check might be worth investigating too.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

I was sceptical about the idea of warning people a thousand times and occasionally making them sit on the naughty step for five whole minutes, but now I see characters like Wil have reformed themselves I have to say I was wrong.

It's called pseudo-behaviorism because it's not real.

You guy's are so easily offended though. What's the definition of "vile"? I'm sure there is a difference in perspective.

Why do these people who post mostly in the other forum feel the need to say what's right in this forum. Going from that forum to this is like going from college to the pros. Things move way quicker now. I think you should stick with the place you're comfortable with.

Anything more like this and you will be given a 1-day timeout from the forum.

(I realize that you may well disagree with this view. Feel free to express your disagreement in the forum's Moderation thread or on the About The Forums forum.)
nobody is denying or trying to justify any of this you simpleton

is it impossible to get through to you? seriously, you were asked to justify your previous slander and you once again just ignored it. you dont get to just accuse people of false equivalency contrary to the beliefs and/or words. theres a difference between disagreeing with the facts of the event, for example antifa's presence, and fabricating some bs strawman narrative and threatening posters. you have a history of stramanning, not owning up to it, and then silently deleting your slanderous posts

try to formulate an actual thought or reasoning here

what is a false equivalency? what am i trying to equate? (hint nothing). was antifa there? did antifa show up with weapons? did antifa engage in violent brawls with weapons? is antifa a radical political group? where is the name antifa derived from? does antifa have a recent history of deplorable and violent behavior? are many member of antifa openly communist or socialist in ideology? does communism have a perfect track record of genocide? is it unfair to call political groups in the usa with communist ideology and a track record or violent protest radical? how does any of that apologize for, excuse, or create some sort of false equivalency?

seriously, show some credibility. actually demonstrate an honest and rational pov. go ahead and give me a 1 day time out just so we have on record what a slanderous jerk you are

Juan straight up asking for a 1 day timeout when he's jetlagged and going to bed anyway. Masterful.

How is a mod like Augie allowed to post openly racist things over and over. He represents the site?

About the forums. It is a forum up in the top of the menu. I'll edit and add the link.

Looks like the Leftists couldn't handle debate and resorted to fascism.

Might as well declare victory for the Conservatives against bigots like AllCows.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

lol wow, what a fun read that ATF forum was. My favorite part was Cows begging to become mod so he could bring down his riteous ban-hammer. That would've been amusing to see.

Bobo was one of the few mods that had any balls in that thread. Infantilism wins out.

The reason we saw the left react the way the did, is similar to the reasons that made those racists infest Charlottesville: they desperately seek purpose. For them, this was their Germany circa 1930.


It will be seen that, as used, the word ‘Fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print...All one can do for the moment is to use the word with a certain amount of circumspection and not, as is usually done, degrade it to the level of a swearword.

Well done ACEG. You managed to shut down any opposing views to your morally self-righteous arrogance. Hope you are proud of yourself.

Yeah, the sheer arrogance of it is mind-boggling.

And she has the cheek to call us Nazis. Amazing.

You and yours are entirely responsible for this forum closing down, had you been in any way concerned with having an actual good faith discussion rather than trolling those you disagree with this forum would continue to be around.

Congratulations dickhead you managed to get this place closed.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

It seems that we are all going to be forced to accept other people's realities under threat.

Lol. The jackboot of "liberalism" stomps on people's heads. Conform, or else. We will FORCE you to believe in what we do!

No matter what winds up happening - know that your side didn't win.
