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.)

I think BRTD-style threads should be an infractable offense.

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.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

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

Of course.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

     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).
