Because you are the Hall Monitor for Team Red. You are not objective. And you troll right along with the rest of them!! Especially for 'Fry!!

How was I on Team Red when I called MN out comments on your family?   Your response was to attack me.

I never claimed to be objective, just an individual that thinks for myself.

As I recall, I was 'in a bit of a state' that evening, having had my kids threatened by MN. Thank you for your attempt, and maybe I was hasty with my reply. Sometimes that happens.

And maybe I was primed having seen you tirelessly troll 'Fry. I really hate it that a group of grown men (and a biddy or two) pick on him relentlessly just because he posts stuff they don't like.

Grow up, already. Just don't read it! You all look like whiny brats when you never fail to complain about his "copy/pasta"! Does it make your scrolling finger too sore to go past it?  8* 8* 8*

Many people troll into topics that have no interest to them, simply to pick on posters because they post stuff that they don't like.

Reopen what?
I made an observation, and a comment. I didn't attack anyone, nor was I disrespectful to anyone.

Not at all. I simply made an observation. I didn't make any references to any body parts, political party, etc.
It is possible to have a peaceful exchange without escalating to name calling, bigotry, political parties or teams. I also didn't post pictures or cartoons in an attempt to belittle anyone based on their choices or rights.
I will stick to our agreement to not get personal or attack each other, although I'm certain that we will have differences of opinion from time to time.

Sorry if I “primed” you.   Primed devices still require a spark to fire or misfire.

What’s with your fixation with my relationship to any other MT posters?  It seems strange that your screams of injustice exceed the number of recent my replies to your martyr.

Thanks for your advice on the "just don't read it!"   This great advice could be exercised to the "copy/pasta", "complains of copy/pasta" and trolling posts.

Wow! So in your mind...since you're stalking me, we're now in a "relationship"??
You are one sick MoFkr!

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Every time I come back to this forum I see very few new faces. That tells me that new users are simply turned off from participating here and I think I know why. When you see topics with a hundred or more pages, who is ever going to go through all of that to participate?

And why do topics go into hundreds of pages? For reasons like this:



I don't see how it is not considered destructive when you have a few users monopolize the forums by dominating them with repeated posts. And the effect is clear, a lack of new users.

Screw yourself moron. I haven't posted in weeks. It's people like you and the other righties that are responsible for the lack of participation.

Censorship is not the answer. The right-wing extremists managed to take over the forum...by bullying and being obnoxious.

They've made it a very inhospitable place to visit.

The righties, such as yourself, spread baseless opinionated lies and disputing with a single source often elicits howling about that source.

Posting several sources seems to have eliminated the screeching from the fools...but then there's you complaining about too many posts...at a time when posting on this site has never been lower.

Guess you must love excelsior then since that troll doesn't bother looking for existing relevant threads to put things...the majority seem to end up as new topics...often without anybody else commenting...and that refusal to categorize has made a mess of things...essentially pushing down more active posts.

I'm sorry if thinking critically bothers you...but countering the nonsense being spewed by the right is hardly responsible for the decline of participation.

The right-wing troublemakers are to blame...and that goes back to lack of moderation.

The administration has failed.

This isn't censorship. If anything, the way in which you and other users try to dominate threads is censorship through drowning out other people's voices. What I am suggesting would level the playing field for all users, and help ensure that everyone's voice is heard. It is telling to me that you are playing the victim of bullying and obnoxious behavior when you are one of the few doing just that on this very thread.

The righties, such as yourself, spread baseless opinionated lies and disputing with a single source often elicits howling about that source.

I'm not really sure what you're accusing me of here. Opinions by their nature can't really be lies, because they're opinions not facts. I suppose someone might lie about what his/her opinion really is, but to accuse that is just silly.

MEN: I think this right here is a clear admission that the reason certain users post so much is to suppress others. I think allowing this to continue is an indication that you have given up on what you expect this forum to be. And the departure of more meaningful participants is a clear result of it.

I agree, Greg.  The countless Copy-n-paste bullshlt is why I have him on ignore. 

But new users see that, and are turned off, and never come back.

If Fry gave his OWN opinion on a subject, then maybe include a link to his source, that's fine.  But page after page after page of meaningless words that someone else wrote, or videos of nothing but the Young Turks, is worthless garbage.
