    To all my conservative friends I ask give this a thought. I admire crepitus' voracity, he knows before he posts hes going to have 6 people jumping on him, yet he does it day after day.

    He sticks up for others that he politically agrees with, DONT WE ALL

    Crepitus is a good guy hes compassionate and hes one of the first ones to respond to posts of members that are in distress in real life with a kind word that means something to me. Do he and I always agree ? politically never, other stuff most all the time.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Yeah, but it would be nice if at least one of those threads contained a shred of honesty instead of just bull$#@!. It is one thing to post an item that is politically biased. It is something else completely to post something that is blatantly and demonstrably false or is just intended to insult.

    I don't really care whether he remains an "advisor" or not. They are about as useful as teats on a boar hog, anyway. If it gives someone's life meaning to be one, have at it.

    I don't see why anyone is knocking Common. As far as I can tell, he is the only one of the advisors who is even really attempting to fulfill the role in the specified manner. He has a mandate to post X number of new topics a day. Her is doing so and he is not posting stupid images or obviously false stories to make his quota. He is posting stories that sure, may slant toward his own political preferences, but this is a political board.

    He is making a good faith effort and seems to be the only one doing so.

    The bolded part is one of the main problems as to why tPF is where it is today. I can hold my own when that happens, along with a select few, but it does get tiring having that happen just because there are a group of people here that doesn’t like to hear opposing opinions.

    No one is. I merely asked that Crepitus be offered the same courtesy.

    It is not opposing opinions that are the problem. It is blatant dishonesty.
