I think that has been a long time since I last used that sobriquet.

It was a few days ago. Try again.

Completely serious. That is my recollection. I don't feel like going through all the pages of my posting history to verify it.

I’m not asking you to - all I’m asking and many other people have asked to - please stop polluting the threads arguing and engaging people that you call trolls - please put them on ignore.

Link? I think Henry made a play on words with Unbeliebable (which both you, as HT, and Beaver laughed at) and I made a similar word play variation of that (which you two did not find as amusing as Henry's attempt at humor).  However, just making a cursory word search I don't see a recent usage of mine of BieberClieber.

Your "I'm innocent" shtick isn't working. You stir the pot more than anyone here.

Then you should focus a lot less of your time and mind on me. You’re right that is odd

:shrug:

I like you, you add a lot of substance to conversations and have a tendency to come from a place I had not considered.  It's just a shame that you spend a peculiar amount of time worried about those two in particular.

Don't need to. You already admitted it. Keep living in your fantasy world about what you do here. You cry to the mods about everything including nicknames and yet you do the same stuff you whine about. Have a good night.

Define recent?   In the last year, here is a few:

I wanna make a joke about a good few of you being like PeeWee Herman and Francis...but that movie is funny and I don't want to besmirch the good name of that childhood favorite franchise 

 

I wanna believe that same group are actually adults capable of knowing when enough is enough.  The joke that may have been enjoyed with the initial rounds of pestering should have worn of by now, as there is nothing new in any of the interactions; just repetitious circle jerking of the most obnoxious kind (and this time, you are getting compared to PeeWee Herman)

 

It's all just Low Energy! and Sad! (see, political jokes should be short and sweet, without garnering much more than an eye roll from the opposite side)

 

The ignore posters route is just silly, IMO. Read, reply if you have a thought, engage in potential point-counterpoint, move on.  Simple, really.  

 

Meh, back to my lurking in the political talk and silently shaking my fists at the screen as I slowly turn into my father

I don't consider March of 2017 recent as far as having recently used that nickname (although we are getting into semantics) and I did say above that it had probably been about a year since I last used it (so I was off a couple months :shrug:)

Also, that was before Joe's Manifesto requesting we avoid name calling and I mentioned earlier that I believe that I had stopped using that sobriquet after the Manifesto was issued. Plus on a side note, the Beaver Cleaver account was suspended and he was using Phase of the Game so I don't see a big deal of using a nickname of a banned account while someone is using an alias (and don't you just hate people who use an alias?)

@Joe Bryant

I’ve been tempted several times to ask, and since we’ve reached critical mass again:  What happened to jon_mx anyway?  Can I see what he did?  The reason I ask is because I hate jon_mx, I disagree with 99% of everything he posted.  But, two things I can say for sure about him are:

a)       He genuinely believed what he posted.

b)      Whatever he said that got him banned he did out of frustration, not vindictiveness.

It seems to me you want posters with those two qualities. 

And there are some posters here that I can’t say that about.  They continuously post crap all day long for the sole purpose of sowing discord towards anything Trump.   HT’s tweet thread was the perfect example; blood in the water.

I don’t envy these problems, there is a reason some message boards don’t allow politics or religion at all. The difference today though is a religious thread would still be ~50-50.

What good is it to have "people" on ignore when their posts are quoted over and over again. Insufferable 

Ignore the people that keep responding to them.

You didn't know this? Its been used here as a disparaging term for years, and not even just from the usual suspects but from more "centerish" people as well.

Ive never understood it either. I consider myself a bit of a SJW...well, without the actual " warrioring" part. Not the least bit ashamed of it.

Its been used to belittle since its inception. It was never designed to be a positive term.

Sho has made himself the PSF Hall Monitor.  He must report DIRECTLY to Joe. He's very serious about it so you better not get on his bad side.  Actually, now that I think about it, that's the only side he has.

Let's not stop at banning emoji's.  Let's ban words.  That's right.  There are to be no typed out words in any of your posts.  I'll start with my next post.

Since the moderation team has decided that "willfully ignorant" posters are not technically trolling, I would like to make a suggestion for how to address their behavior:

1. find a way to put them on a universal ignore list. Allow them to view the forums and reply to posts, but make them completely invisible to everyone else.

2. if #1 is not possible, maybe you could just relocate all of their posts to a single thread? That way, if we really want to see what's on _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _'s mind, I can just pop into the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Thread and read all of his latest musings.

I realize that this suggestion may not seem fair to willfully ignorant non-troll posters, but I think it would do worlds of good for the forums as a whole.

Another forum I am a member of has a feature that people on your ignore list can't post in threads you started.  Perhaps that would work here.

Sounds like something the Nazis would say. Censor anyone who disagrees. Outlaw freedom of speech.

It appears the mods and owners here at FBG realized that sort of moderation was not good for business.

Just because you disagree with someone does not mean they are "trolling" or that their opinion is any less valid than yours.

Perhaps there is a lessons to be learned.

In 10 years this sub forum will be an excellent case study in group think and manipulation.

Just making it so you can ignore quoted text from ignored users would be most excellent.

It looks like a bunch of the threads related to Second Amendment, gun control and shootings got deleted too?
