This is my read of the situation.

The dude started a thread called "The Demise of the Intellectual Voter" or something which just turned into a whinge fest about how he had no opportunities because he's a white male and doesn't want to get the Covid vaccine. People suggested he get vaccinated and he gave us five hours of Joe Rogan interviews. When we didn't want to spend five hours watching interviews, he started complaining that the forum is full of negativity and branded me and some other users "The Hateful Eight" and started bothering the mods.

Oh, and he also created inane, repetitive topics. Did we really need a topic for podcasts and a designated one for Joe Rogan? Nothing against Joe Rogan, but this isn't the Joe Rogan/Jordan Peterson SubReddit. He couldn't understand that if your content isn't well-received, you should either change your content or reconsider your audience. Hell, do neither, but don't claim your audience is "full of negativity."

*VERY* happy with my current circumstances in life and work.   

What I saw here was not disagreement, it was making a mockery of another poster and ridiculing him to the point he was deleted.


Oh please.  The dude was a troll, and it was pretty obvious to anyone with any experience of internet forums/newsgroups/bbs/etc by his third day.

You have it the wrong way around.  He was mocking waygook users, and a few of us finally decided to respond--not even in kind, just pointing out the BS and trollery. 

And incidentally, your personal attack on Rye was disgusting and uncalled for.

I stand by my personal opinion of him as I am allowed to have it.  If you think my opinion of him was 'disgusting'...please feel free and contact the authorities.

You don't get to play the victim card because you heard something you didn't like. 

MOD EDITED OUT THE REST.

The conversation devolved into a half dozen defamatory posts, one of the prime directives given to delete posts.

What remains are criticisms of actions not insults of individuals.
Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.
