    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.
    If that thread passed you troll test then you need a new one. The oneyou've got is broken. You say he "engaged", I say discussing how true his post is and how bad liberals are with his fellow trolls is not engaging in any real sense.

    Sorry, but I remember the thread as humorous. What, are you a Democrat?

    You know why you remember it a humerus Chris? Because you were one of the people "engaging" in the behavior I described.

    So you can't argue with what I say, you tell me what I think and argue with that.

    Bethere would take what resister said in other posts not related to him and use them to troll and insult him.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Beth wasnt even a good troll. He was a common troll. Resister is a relative newcomer to the forum scene. In a year or two he will learn not to engage trollish behavior.

    He is not the only one to do that.

    I commented elsewhere that it's impressive how many members tried to advise resister not to react so much to trolling. That's not an easy thing to do all the time, not defend yourself against trollish twisting and insults. Maybe if more of us more openly shared that advice with each other it would help. And it would sure as hell piss off the trolls.

    It’s simple: Play by the rules and your participation here will be pleasant and uninterrupted. Continuously break the rules and you will be finding a new forum to post on.

    Both resister and Bethere chose the latter.
    "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
    - Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968), U.S. Senator from New York and U.S. Attorney General
