    Barbarian, Learning that Sherman is a woman:
    Doesn't matter. Seems like a very upfront person. So likely not afraid to clarify.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    She seemed pleased that I posted a critique of Trump's ICE policy, which emphasizes rounding up law-abiding illegal aliens, at the expense of getting the dangerous criminals deported, rather than attributing it to his character or lack of it.

    So that's what I'll do. And I'll avoid talking about how sleaze fits in.

    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.

    He is free to express his displeasure at policies in threads he starts himself, but the threads and posts attacking his moral character are what the moratorium applies to. These things are blown way out of proportion and it not up for debate. There was never quite the volume of threads about the theories concerning Obama. That is why there was never any action taken on them. They didn't take over the forum. And, folks, please don't pop into every thread expressing your displeasure at the president.

    What 'moral character'? He's a serial adulterer. So much for Christian conservatives actually standing up for morals now that a GOP president is exposed as a real scumbag.

    What a great way to attract conservatives to the board.

    Clinton was a scumbag too. Shouldn't scumbags be exposed and their lack of moral character mocked?

    Adultery isn't a partisan issue.
