    I would bet a "dollar to donut" that anyone that takes the time to post the contributions of resister and juxtapose it with any other poster that was banned for trolling, an objective person would either see how much a troll he was, or that the other members banned for trolling were not as bad as they thought they were.

    For anyone to make the argument that they didn't think resister was a troll, is laughable.

    Sorry, Safety, you're another one I love to bits but we'll just have to agree to disagree. Btw, how's that precious little dude of yours?

    He's doing well, they grow quick.

    Here's a question, how is he "reacting" to something when he creates a thread about some black folks either fighting or stealing?

    I didn't see that particular thread or threads so I can't comment on those specifically, sorry. You know that, though I lean conservative on many issues, I have been known to take issue with them on many others. There have been several conservative posters banned that I felt like had indeed crossed the line and needed to go. It really isn't partisan for me. I am friends with those from both sides and defend posters from either side when I think they are being treated unfairly. Surely you know that.

    Yes, I do know you are one of the good ones here, but even so, that doesn't say that there were things that you missed. I think there have been many members treated unfairly due to individuals with an ax to grind in leadership positions.

    I don't think any of the current moderators are intentionally treating anyone unfairly. I think they are doing the best they can to be balanced. I disagreed with some of their decisions but don't question their motives.

    Balance, reminds me of my dad when I was a kid. My brothers and I would get into it and it didn't matter who started it, it didn't even matter if you weren't involved at all, we all got it. Maybe that works with kids, not adults.

    Currently, I can agree with your assessment, but there have been situations in the past that sowed the seeds of resentment in which have been acted on for several members. If I was a new member here, I would tend to agree that we should not question motives, but having the privilege of seeing first hand the actions of one in particular, there was an active campaign to get rid of at least one member because they could not handle the return snark when engaged. PM me if you want the particulars.

    Or that "Democrats 10 commandments" flamebait? Or any number of other threads he posted simply to start $#@!. They are mad because they liked him, not because he wasn't a troll.

    I liked Bethere. He was a troll though.
    I don't insult, I diagnose.

    My troll detection kit has a test. It's not a test of how pissed off a post makes you. Rather, it tests the poster. If you see someone post what think might be a troll, try to engage the OP in a discussion about it. If he engages, if he discusses it, then he's not trolling. If he instead disgresses, dissembles or disparages, he's likely a troll. You have to administer the test enough times to establish a pattern to really decide.

    No doubt the 10 commandments pissed you off. But resister engaged throughout the thread. He violated rules but was not a troll imo.

    Bethere disgressed, dissembled or disparaged 90% of the time.
