  •  Bullshit HR's for mere disapproval. (0+ / 0-)

    It's a bit over the top IMO but I'm pretty sure that's not the litmus test.

    •  Trolling, Mr. Everton. (0+ / 0-)

      Threadstalking and thread hijacking are trolling.

      I honestly don't care what people think. I know and get along with people whose opinions appall me. But I expect substantive contributions in exchange for substantive posts.

      Trolls want none of it. For their own reasons, often purely malicious, they want to stop conversation.

      Hide recommendations are not the end of the world. They are a community's way of saying, "enough. You are not adding to the community. You are subtracting from the community, sowing ill-will."  

      Trolls then either start making substantive contributions or they end up getting voted off the island. It really should never get to that point, but some people feel compelled to behave like asses.

      •  The last two times.... (0+ / 0-)

        I've made long, detailed posts critical of your treatment of Assange as a spokeman, to which you've not responded.  So it's awfully rich of you to come here and then, when I don't write something long, say that that's worthy of a hide rate.
