I refer to things like this:

Those weapons inspectors were in Saddam's pocket the entire time.

Why do say that?  Because they couldn't find WMD's that weren't there?

No the weapons were there. Why haven't you heard about that?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Hearing scattered reports of de Blasio supporters rounding up Kulaks on Wall Street and executing them in the streets.
It's always nice to see white people claim distant lands.
Is it a gay thing?

Inconsistent with Dave's vision of the site.

Unfortunately.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

How one perceives the ''quality of discourse" on here to be is 100% subjective.

"and Obama supporter"

I completely concur with Xahar. Whenever I read things like that post I think of this thread. Consistent stupidity should be a justification for banning.

Oh please. The hilarious part of your post was the fact that you used the implication that Obama was beloved by communists (and that's exactly what the point of the entire thread was to begin with) from a news link that featured Castro criticizing the United States.

right as always. EXCEPT that I started the thread to criticize the MSM for still reporting what this poster says. I wouldn't wish death on anyone on earth except for him. There is a special place in hell for this man who has oppressed and killed millions, and has turned this potential world power into a backwater communist fiefdom.

And randomly trying to tie Obama to him in any way you can is of course totally relevant and appropriate for the topic.

But Inks, if you remove the Ban threads and the gimmick threads, there will be nothing on this board but useful threads discussing new features, and that would be boring.

You have excessively degraded the quality of discourse in this thread.

It is with the utmost regret that I must ask for your immediate removal from this forum by means of banning.

Hamilton's sock here provides a great example.

I will note that mods have told me that have deleted or given infractions to Libertas for basically doing this with his many posts where he merely states his opinion as if it were fact with absolutely nothing to back it up or attempts to "debate" other posters by doing this and merely dismissing their arguments by stating that they are wrong with nothing to back it up as well. Basically what Derek did in the first noted post.
