  •  I gave it a 2 orignially (none)
    But then upgraded to a 4 because I didn't want the whole thread to become hidden.  There has been some interesting discussion that ensued.  

    I guess this poster has some history here and so there are those that automatically zeroed him/her.  I don't know that history and didn't think the post warranted a troll rating - but, that said, it wasn't a very strong post - thus the 2.

    I kind of like having a few resident semi-trolls around just to force us to keep questinoning ourselves and also honing our arguments.  As long as they aren't deliberately sabotaging the board.  And I didn't think D2D was sabotaging this thread with his/her post.

    •  I was perhaps hasty (none)
      I was reading all the comments, came to that one, saw it bashed, and I was just pissed. It was not abusive, not unkind--why the troll ratings? Or even the "1s"? But it seems there is some history. I should have read farther first. But the tone of the comment was fair, and I agreee with you that it wasn't deliberate sabatoge; just a nonsequitor. And yes, we need semi-trolls. NEED.

      Thanks for the thoughtful response.

      •  Yeah (none)
        He is a civilized troll. I might uprate him sometime soon. Maybe I will give him a 1 or even a 2 (I feel kind of generous today)
