Coz, you mean some of these as#@&%es pollute serious threads? That's pretty lame.

I honestly don't know. I skim some threads, usually get bored with the topic by the first or second post, and then move on. I know what threads to post on when I'm feeling like a dick and have convinced myself that I rarely deviate from that pattern. I could be wrong... but that would be a first.

Coz, if you had observed the kind of low-down chickenshit rat behavior that Rong pulled, you'd kick his sorry hillbilly arse yourself.

Give it a rest Apogee. you complaineth too much...

Why not just ignore the world that thinks differently, regarding your sensibilities ?

In many cases there is no justice. only peace.

You are at your best when producing posts that are generous in offering something the rest of us can think about.

That was good oneJim! Beautifully put. In 99% of all cases I do agree. I'm sure some will call bull on that but that is the essence of tollerance.

But then there are times when things need resolution. Just ask the Bosnians and the Serbs who lived in guarded tolerance for a century or few. Well they decided to resolve things all right!

Well, I haven't seen any behavior, like you describe from Ron, in fact, all I see is you guys flogging him because he's a little right of moderate.

Well Coz, like the Rock Man said in Neilson's Me an my Arrow - "We sees what we want to see and we hears what we want to hear".
Or something like that.

On the GOOD side, we not only have a TON of awesome TRs, and FA stories by some of the best of the best, but also intriguing threads like the "what are you building" - which is fascinating and educational. We have art threads, and whimsical story thread such as Mouse of Merceds "Flames" thread. The large trout lovers thread where BG proves he is a 5.12 fisherman too! Climbers are far more complex than just a bunch of rock geckos.




Edit: astute observation Coz.. A few here attempt to paint someone a solid color - IE: if i dont like Obama then im obviously a tea bagger right wing fanatic/racist/bigot. HARDLY the case. I talk about the GLARING illegals and gang problems here so therefore i have to be a racist. There is no middle ground for some. Only one way or the other. And i believe they are all victims of our politicians ways..

Coz

It's not his politics...who cares?

It's the insidious manner with which he mucks up every thread with his usual thread-drifting/killing bullsh#t.

Not that he's alone in this, but he's by far the most prolific. And he has a lot of people here trained to respond to him negatively.

I don't have anything against his beliefs, just wish he'd show some goddamn restraint once in awhile.

Ron,

Despite Dingy's desire to frame you as someone who needs to improve your attitude, the rest of us have seen you act appropriately for quite some time.

You have nothing to be sorry for at all.

Your climbing info and the other info you provide is a wonderful gift to the rest of us.

Ron can do as he wishes, hermitwanker. He called for taking a higher road and I am pleased to see him walking his talk.

Unless you embrace the liberal creed, (some) posters act like you're scum of the Earth.

Oh Ive never known a conservative to do THAT!

I really don't care what Rong's views are- there are plenty of people here who have diverging ideologies, and I enjoy perseverating banter with almost all of them. fattrad was one of my favorites, that way- I had great appreciation for the way he maintained such a steady demeanor while constantly being slammed from other directions.

And truthfully, I had the same admiration about Rong for quite some time- in spite of his carefully crafted hillbilly communication style (which is a ruse, btw...he has demonstrated elsewhere an actual ability to spell & compose sentences very well), he took the regular slams just fine, and came back again and again.

Where everything turned was when he openly admitted his role in reporting hedge for the use of bullwinkle's images in another thread. (If you remember, hedge slammed Rong six ways to Tuesday, each and every day, for GawdKnowsHowLong.) That was an amazing display of downright lowlifery...in my book, the 'code' of ST polititard FightClub is that you accept that things are gonna get messy, but you don't hit below the belt. And Rong did exactly that.

Not just be a rat, mind you...but brazenly admit it, and play it up (and apparently has already done so on someone else). Others may just brush this kind of sliminess aside (or not even be aware of it), but I won't forget it.

Right... I've never seen conservatives calling girls sluts and telling them they are going to hell because of the clothes they wear and/or because they don't follow a 10,000 year fairytale.

I forget who calls gays an "abomination" and fight to ensure they don't get the right to marry the person they love... but I'm sure it wasn't conservatives... they are above that sort of thing... totally open-minded, openhearted, kind folks.

I'm sure it wasn't conservatives who have been refusing to reach a compromise with the POTUS because he is (gasp) a liberal.
