    His little game, juvenile as it is, doesn't really impact the site as a whole -- and that's what it seems it takes to get HOS to stick.

    I mean, he's not bad at this little tactic of his.  He re-writes the statements of others into things they didn't actually say, but he stays close enough to the actual words so that he can play at simply misunderstanding what was said.

    We know the difference because it's our diaries he trolls most of the time.  Others aren't as familiar with the tactic.

    Even then, what would be the point?  Look at how little support his last couple of diaries have gotten.  The tactic isn't working any better for him than it is for the Republicans with their "Obama Apology Tour" nonsense -- it is identical, and it's not working for either of them.  When you invest in that tactic, though, you have to really commit to it.

    He plays his little game, we come in and point out just how foolish his little arguments are, and it moves off the list.

    Making him HOS would just get him a bit of the support he's not getting now, out of a sense of pity, if nothing else.

    Heck, if we ignored him, he'd get no response whatsoever.  I just goes against the grain to let such outright falsehoods go without pointing them out.  

    I'm starting to wonder if it's not like responding to the wilder conspiracy theories -- to even take the time to refute them is to give them more attention than they deserve.

    Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?
