I posted no personal attack. I spoke about a style of posting that is not intended to enlighten but to stir the pot. It offers no support for the position stated. a.k.a. "trolling"


4.) Spamming, trolling, flaming, and personal attacks are prohibited. You can disagree with other members, even vehemently, but it must be done in a well-mannered form. Attack the argument, not the arguer.


So, I guess we can't disagree with others. :(

If you are going to lock a thread you could at least give an indication as to how it broke the rules. This might help identify that fine line that was crossed in the future. :confused:

Taurus - Two things.

Thing one... Are you referring to this thread? http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=71520 I closed it because it made absolutely no sense. I'd appreciate you enlightening me as to what you meant.

Thing two... I'm moving this to the Tech Support forum. If you desire a public discussion of this, I'll grant that. If you would like to discuss it privately, please send me a PM.

I think he's referring to
http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=71449
and maybe this
http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=71560

At any rate, Taurus, I presume the thread TBM mentioned was in response to the second thread immediately above. You can't assume others will have read it, and you certainly can't assume that they'll know what you're referring to even if they have read it.

You might have better luck reposting the article warma posted if you preface it with some specific L&P-related comments about what amounts to political spam passed off as "news" by the media. Warma doesn't usually steer those sorts of articles in a productive direction, which inevitably results in someone alleging that he's a democratic underground troll (or in the above case, a communist). After that, the half life of the thread is rather short.

Thanks tyme. You're right on all counts.
