She tells people to leave the forum--normal forums would ban someone for such behavior, but management here lets her say that kind of crap regularly to people. How do you expect to keep anyone who isn't on the right on this forum when you allow such things to be said? I'm not saying to ban her, but if you're going to step in at times like this, you should step in when she screams at people to leave the forum.
    Help us out here, we're trying to keep this thread from going total $#@!.
    Personally, I think this thread is a lost cause, but I'll let it go from here--if you can actually get it back on track, cool.

    Fair enough - sort of.

    Search some of Cigar's threads and tell me that this forum doesn't tolerate left-wing aggression.

    I didn't apologize good enough, I don't think, for my statement about Calypso "deserved to be hit". I said that I shouldn't have said it, but that's not an apology. Sorry Calypso.

    I think this thread is a teachable lesson. With the inflamatory remark about Obama supporters, it didn't belong in the serious discussions area. If Kizz was offended, he should have reported or PM'd the mods, so the thread could be moved.

    If he didn't feel like reporting or PMing the mods, he could have resolved the issue by PMing Calypso or in some way talking it over peacefully, but fair moderation isn't difficult to accomplish when inflamatory remarks are met with more inflamatory remarks.

    An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind and a bunch of other clichés also apply.

    I didn't know it was in the Other Discussions section. I wouldn't have ever posted in it.

    It was at first, before the mods moved it. It didn't belong in those forums regardless.

    Hm. That could be an issue to work on resolving in itself. As a rule, members should check to see which forums the thread is in, which is visible at the top of the first post. Perhaps we should consider something to make it more obvious.

    I'm not a snitch, or a tattletale, that's the kind of crap I did in elementary school. I'm not going to become a snitch to participate on a forum. Let me be clear: Since I've been here, there have been at least THREE threads dedicated to how offended right wingers are at some of the left wingers here. I'm not going to emulate that kind of whininess, I'm just going to point out the double standards once in a while when I see them.

    Don't complain about behavior that you have yourself, that's my main thing--this goes to Trinnity, Calypso, GrassrootsConservative, and others.
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.

    "The mods"?

    That's what I am to you? "The mods"?

    I think things are fine as far as that goes. If people are too lazy to look at what forum a post is in, that's their problem.
