Thread Name: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
Subject: RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
Personal abuse is personal, and is directed at someone who's expected to read it. I've heard Max say nothing about trolling/flaming. The problem is we've got a bunch of very easily led, inconsiderate people who'd rather have a knee-jerk reaction to what they object to than to stick to a particular subject.
Case #1: Pete Seeger and Stalin.
Case #2: what should/should not be deleted.
Enough people lack the ability to see the negative purpose their indignant posts will serve and just not respond.
One problem here is that we have a number of people who form a ready-made group of troll followers/feeders. You remove a trolling message, the trollerazzi just wait for the next one to poke them with the indignant stick. Just learn how to stop or at least start a different thread.
Nobody wants to be sentenced to making the world safe for easily provoked people with poor impulse control.
Last from me on this thread.
