13 of the last 20 posts come from conservative posters.

Tell me again: Why is this board called "Retire Early Liberal Edition"?

Nothing wrong with conservative posters per se, but when every post is a smirking, insulting jibe at liberals, it makes me wonder.

They're here because people here feed them. If people here went to Campfire and posted the opposite of what conservatives post here, you would simply be sent on your way (with utter contempt). However, people here carry on long (and mostly polite, even though it's impossible to insult these folks) conversations. Then every few months someone posts a query which comes down to "why are they here?"

There's a conservative poster who doesn't post on PA more than a couple of times a month because on PA people call a lie, a lie and then go on to something else -- no fun for a conservative. Here a lie is just the start of a 50 or 70 post thread.

It's like feeding a pigeon -- You give away 3 peanuts and suddently you've got a swarm of 50 pigeons -- or a couple of conservative posters who won't go away.

Liberals are such wusses.
