  •  Wingnut passive-aggression. (6+ / 0-)

    They feel that they have the right to send you all sorts of right-wing crap, but that you have no right to respond to it. It's a problem with a lot of e-mail lists. Too many people have an attitude of "just let the blowhards bloviate", because responding to them could cause unpleasantness in the group.

    So, the stuff either goes unchallenged, or the liberal responding is piled upon for upsetting the group. If it goes unchallenged, it created a perception that everyone thinks like the wingnuts. The wingnuts love that. If the list explodes, the wingnuts love that too. One of their favorite tactics is to disrupt any communication that is not favorable to their own agenda.

    The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
