    or supporting voting against the Democratically elected POTUS. Do with that what you will. I've seen it linked around myself.

    None were banned.

    So there will be trolls and/or people from other parties here. Might not be a site rule, but right now it sure as shit is!

    •  Oh, so the only reason... (0+ / 0-)

      ...to do that is because the person is a troll or "not one of us"?

      Yes, there are trolls here, but labeling people as trolls for having passionate views that lead them to what you consider to be a terribly wrong conclusion is part of the problem.

      Trying to understand the passion that leads to that (wrong) conclusion would be constructive and civil. Arguing over the consequences of their conclusion would be constructive & civil. After all, if you can't convince them, at least you can try to convince others who are following the conversation. Who is impressed by tossing out insults?

      (And lest you assume that I am "one of them": I always vote for the Democrat in any contest -- but I am very selective who I give my MONEY and time to.)
