That said, if you would gang up on another and vote to banish a member because of your own in-group vanities or insecurities, you are the one who should be banned.

Contribute.
Engage.

Bite back if need be, but please - get a grip, people.


Carry on.

It would be different if he had anything of value to offer, but all he does is try to get under people's skin. Push buttons. I can't think of one time he's ever mentioned Amsterdam and I kind of wonder if he's ever even been there let alone has any interest in the city/country?

Agreed. And the hypocrisy of his defenders knows no bounds.

I am guilty of engaging the troll.
I am honor bound pretty much to call out aggressive willful ignorance and prejudice when it is
displayed so blatantly both on the internet and also in the default world.

Pretty much every other Oklahoman I run into has also come down
with Ignorant Asshole Syndrome and is spewing similar falsehoods and conspiracy garbage.

And the undercurrent of "All Lives Matter" racism.

This is a completely immovable polarized position.

There is no common ground. Nor is there an inch of space we can give back to these
relics of our awful dark past.

Trying to navigate through a semi-normal existence in this atmosphere of hate and destructive behavior
is literally driving everyone insane.

As entertaining as this contention may be to some,
if it were someone you wouldn't appreciate as a friend or neighbor,
what is the point of giving them access to fighting with you on the internet?

I am perfectly fine with getting rid of this oozing sore and stopping the itch.

With his last toxic expletive, he may have already removed himself.

Good bye Felicia.

You are righteous and noble.
No need to apologize.

I'm not sure about righteous or noble.

I've already been told on several occasions that I'm going to
hell for my excessive use of the word fuck and its myriad variations.

I suppose I could be considered a cunt, but that still trumps stupid motherfucker any day.

Or a self-deluded, reactionary pothead.

Anything is better than that.

Rather than removing MR how about opening the forum to some new members and perhaps we could garner better discourse? Seems like the folks you were most concerned about have since died. C'mon bas, some fresh blood!


23 guests in here this evening bas. C'mon 23 potential posters. Open the gates again!? If you don't wanna filter thru the applicants then hand off those duties to perhaps your former mayor? Or, even one of your old moderators, like FlyByNite for instance?

How about it Sue? You want the job, or just to sue me? ;)

Obtain me the reigns, Banks. You've met the man, not me, what's our best angle forward on this?

Just like the daily covid case count that number is subjective.

I browse the forum all the time without logging in.

I seem to remember bas closing the forums due to the spambot posts? If that hasn't been taken care of leave the forum closed.
