    Moratorium on one trick pony threads and posts.

    The current one trick pony threads are ones attacking the character of our current President. 70 percent of the recent threads in this section are on that very topic. That is too much. I am going to kindly ask the four parties that dwell on this subject to take it back to your liberal and atheist boards if you want to continue to discuss it. This is a conservative website designed to attract mainly conservative traffic. TOL is not to be a clearing house for threads that attack the character of the POTUS. There is enough of that elsewhere. You are welcome to discuss other political issues and policies, The character assassination is going to stop. We didn't do it Obama on a huge scale like this.

    I will be handing out infractions to people that disrupt running threads with this topic as well. Enough is enough. Those that spam with cartoons on this subject may find themselves removed as a spammer. Please quit wasting TOL's bandwidth and stretching the threads with these posts.

    I'm guessing that this is not what Sherman is saying. She apparently wants us to stop talking about Trump's personal problems, but will allow criticism of his policies.

    If I'm wrong, Sherman, let me know.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Sherman said you can trash Trump all you want on a Liberal or Atheist site, but that you need to stop trying to turn TOL into a "trash Trump" site.

    She seems fine with criticism of his policies, just not his personal life.

    Which leaves us a lot of material to talk about, doesn't it?

    If you want to test it out by creating a bunch of new threads trashing Trump's policies, Sherman may give you a vacation from TOL to think about how you got that wrong.

    Sounds like a good policy. To be fair though, you'd have to admit that Obama doesn't have the kind of character flaws we see in certain other people in question. Would you consider extending your edict to all public figures?

    Would that include faked photoshop scams? I think you'll find they put a much greater demand on bandwidth than cartoons.

    If this represents a racheting up of protection for far-right posters, that's fine too. As you've pointed out, this isn't a level playing field.

    Just wanted a clarification.

    ​Just the current President. There is just waay too many threads and posts on here assassinating his character. Other politicians haven't been attacked the way he has. This is a Right Wing site. If you want to carry on about how 'bad' Trump is there are plenty of liberal sites that will indulge you.

    Normally, "character assassination" means it isn't true. To make it clear, your edict covers anything, true or not?

    Other politicians haven't been attacked the way he has.
    I notice a few (not all, to be fair) right wingers are peddling a fake story about Obama being a homosexual. That's O.K.?

    This is a Right Wing site.
    I got it. Just make it clear how far the playing field is tilted, and we'll go with that.

    If you want to carry on about how 'bad' Trump is there are plenty of liberal sites that will indulge you.
    So where does that put us with his ongoing investigation by the Justice Department? We can't talk about the evidence?

    You suggest policy can be criticized. Is that still open? If it violates the law, can it be criticized?

    How about his underlings? Are they also protected from any comments?

    ?
    Evidence, you mean the fake investigation? You mean like why has no one from XBT been questioned or interviewed?

    Or were you referring to the evidence the Clinton machine was allowed to destroy by crooked FBI management? The same FBI Agents recommended by the OIG for investigation, you know, the ones that have been disarmed, walked to the parking lot, and fired?

    Yes, I'd like an answer to those questions too.

    I have to admit that, as the latest societal bruhaha concerning banning certain thought and the expression thereof on the national and global level (read here Facebook,CNN, et al), I have come to wonder how it might play out at TOL. I mean, I know who owns TOL and the purpose of the site ... and I think that both parties have the same right to monitor and filter content though TOL and the national media likely work at cross purposes. So, I guess we are left to decide for ourselves the relative merits of censorship.

    Please don't get me wrong. I was here during the Leo Volount days. I understand the need for police. I'm just kinda curious what national standard might finally find it's way to codification if TOL might be used as a microcosm of a much larger issue in the U.S.

    Really? There weren't dozens and dozens of threads created about how Obama was supposedly Kenyan, Muslim, gay, or any number of things? I seem to recall a period when there was a constant stream of threads linking WND articles and similar making such claims.

    Must have been a different TOL.

    It's obvious to see, Barb is looking for some kind of Loophole in Sherman's OP. He just cannot fathom the possibility that he'll have to abstain from attacking our President. He needs to go to a far-left Forum where he can spew his hate, freely and without reservation. He's totally consumed with his hatred and feels he needs to vent his hatred publicly.
