  • 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.

    You're a True Patriot, Sherman. Thank you.

      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?

            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.

              I suspect Sherman's not afraid to clarify exactly what he wants. Give him a little time.

                  Sherman is a woman.

                  They already know monsters exist.

                    Doesn't matter. Seems like a very upfront person. So likely not afraid to clarify.

                        Sherman was very clear in her statement that you (and three others) need to stop your character assassination against President Trump on this website.

                              As I said, the OP is addressing right now one trick threads that take over the forum. Right now there is a moratorium on threads attacking our CURRENT President. There has been waay too many of them. This is a conservative board. Please take threads of this nature elsewhere. Thank you.
