The point is not to change the mind of the troll, which is unlikely, but to avoid unchecked pollution for those who are undecided or who hold a moderate position ... which is actually most people. - tamhas

Conservative: I don't like something (in this case a poster I find offensive, disruptive, wrong, whatever) so I will not listen to him (skip to next post, frowny face)

Liberal: I don't like something (in this case a poster I find offensive, disruptive, wrong, whatever) so I will seek to have him banned. That way I won't have to listen to him any more but more importantly I will protect others from hearing his offensive opinions. Others are too weak minded to with out for themselves and they need me to watch out for them even if they don't realize it.



Conservative: I think eating too much meat is bad for your health (or the planet), so I became a vegan.

Liberal: I think eating too much meat is bad for your health (or the planet), so I advocate for banning meat.



Conservative: I don't like guns and would never own one.

Liberal: Guns are icky and since I would never own one, you should be prevented from owning one too.

And so it goes....

bhm, sees lots of posts or posters who opinions I don't like but has no one in his p-box.
