I have seen very little of the niceness and tolerance you cite during the past month.
The tone has reminded me of a pack of hyenas viciously turning on anyone who speaks truth, however unflattering, of the candidate de jour.
Attacks on the truth and calls for censorship from any side of the political spectrum are not healthy.
I do give, but I’m not giving one dime more until I see the tone change around here.
Many have decided not to wait for the tone to change. They’re gone and they’ve taken their support with them. Why should they put up with the abuse?
I hope some lessons will be learned through this.
I have never felt that I was about to be forcibly 86ed from FR before, as I did last week or 2.
But I gave because as strongly as JimRob felt, he must have respected me enough to let me support, loudly, a different candidate. But I admit to being scared!
I don’t like the nasty voices of some newt supporters here, but we must remember that speech is free, according to jimrob’s principles, so there are all kinds here. There are too many wonderful likemindeds here to worry about a few noisy nasty ones.
