Of course the primary offender is gone, but it's not like it isn't used otherwise. It is basically trolling. (If you don't know I'm referring to basically just saying "you're wrong" to every point the other person makes or just using a dumb ad hominem attack.)

No, because it's fascist.

But really,yes.

Convincing BRTD to drop the Sneakers O'Toole BS is like convincing Sneakers O'Toole to take his sneakers off.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

I agree that it's becoming more and more common to see The LibertasTM emoticon employed as a first line of defense, along with abrupt contradictory rebuttals (e.g. "Uh, no it isn't. [end of post]").  But it'd be a worrying precedent to outlaw styles of debate that are considered useless.  Let their poor quality of debate skills speak for themselves.

I don't know what that means.  I just wanted to get in on the fun of misquoting.

Freedom of speech is a cute idea, but it doesn't work - you can't tolerate people who are intolerant.

     There is no guarantee of it, but the owner of a given forum could decide to govern it according to that principle (which Dave has not, for reasons that are self-evident when one considers the intended role of the site).
