The Tea Party trolls are ruining the discussion and debate.

They are trolling and spamming most of the threads.

Kinda saw that coming.

Re: New Experimental Forum on Spearboard

Hey im really concerned that this Forum has turned into a breeding ground for islamophobic, racist vitriol. theres a lot of white supremacist literature getting spread around the boards.... This should be concerining, as outright racism/ support for white supremacist groups has been voiced. Specially, all the racism towards arab people. I understand they may be a small percentage of users, but we can't just let the politics section devolve into a board specifically geared toward white supremacy/ hatred of arabs. might as well rename it.... "WhiteSupremacy"

New Experimental Forum on Spearboard

I agree that the moderation of this forum leaves a lot to wish. Is there moderation? There sure is a lot of trash spoken and a lot of pretty extreme stuff posted. I can't understand why it is allowed?

I am a member in several other forums where stuff like that gets moderated quickly and members continuing speading it gets banned.

That is your opinion but the uniqueness of this forum separates it from others that limit the swing of how topics evolve. Aside from personal threats or attacks you are good to express your views as you see fit. Will there be a majority one way or the other... sure there will but you get to post how you feel without sensor regardless of what side of the issue you fall on. Will you get called names? Yep, get over it. If you are that soft you have no business standing up for your cause or beliefs because good men and women bleed everyday just so you can express or have such. So buckle up manmarvel and enjoy a place that worries not for your feelings and offers no "safe zones". There a plenty of those available for those who are offended and want reprieve.

Sorry Sub but you can go elsewhere if you want your voice squelched due to hurt feelings and trash talking. Also, how do you sensor ideas and opinions? That would mean a Moderator would have to use his own opinion to delete or ban someone base on what side of the issue he was on. How is that reasonable for fair discussions?

I understand you and a few others seem to be outnumbered by views in general but isn't that the way you want it? I mean to actually debate against opposite view untethered? You complain that we just sit around and pat each other on the back but here you are.... able to say what you wish, stir the pot, and inject views to those dissimilar to yourself. You can go anywhere and huddle in a forum with like minded groups and moderators and kick anyone out that doesn't fit the majority. The fact that you are still here says something about how that is not the case with this forum.

You did post this just a few days ago..
"your finally getting me, you understand now. there will be NO DISCUSSION with facists. NO DISCUSSION with neo nazis. NO DISCUSSION with white supremacy.
ONLY DENUNCIATION, SELF-DEFENSE, AND PROTEST
we will not allow the 1930's to repeat themselves. "


I don't think you are anywhere near as old as I am. I grew up in the south. Back when blacks would pick me up hitch hiking and give me a ride and I would do the same for them.....it was a time when we were divided, yes, but the hate that exists today did not exist then....that hate has doubled in the last 8 years.....that's not due to people like me or anyone else on this board....That is caused by a media that feeds manipulated stories to morons who believe them.... Yes there was, and still are some KKK morons out there but that is a very small group. You are very ignorant to call those of us that are proud of our southern history, generals, solid roots, good manners and the belief in hard work, facist. The civil war was fought over many more issues other than just slavery but you have been feed too much BS to know that.

Most conservatives, excepted Obama and his presidency and gave him at least a chance. The true facist, are just that, they are people like you, who will not even give the new president any respect or half a chance to do his job. He has been called a very ugly names by people like you and the press....such as Nazi and facist.
You really should look up facist and see what the word really means.

I appreciate a forum with a high ceiling and I'm not saying I want to discuss with likeminded only, quite on the contrary actually. But the tonality in many of the discussions make it very hard to participate in a civilized manner. Condescending and offensive posts is hardly a catalyst for evolving discussions. I'm not easily offended, but I do like to discuss which is hard to do with the constant condescending replies and loud tone.

Outnumbered... yes by people that chose to participate in these threads. I'm sure there are quite a few people here in the forum sharing my point of view, that just can't be bothered engaging in these threads when the discussion climate is so rough.

I don't mean a moderator should moderate opinions, I mean it is the moderators job to keep the forum discussions and tone civilized, but that kind of moderation does not exist at all here and therefore the most loud get heard and the others don't bother to engage.

Funny stuff here. You two jokers sign on here specifically to post in the P&R section. Then, you decide that your manginas are getting bruised in the discussion. So then you demand that it be either closed or moderated.

Gosh, I sure hope someone gets right on that. Can't be having any sensitive feelers get hurt.
