He was under incessant attack by the Santorum crowd...as anyone who is critical of Santorum is (let me testify!)...and the victim of false accusation.
I would cite this example: I posted a thread last night by Wes Pruden of the Washington Times that was highly critical of Santorum. As I result I was called names, my motives and integrity were impugned and I was accused of "bashing Christians". It was all a crock.
However, had I been a newbie I likely would have been zotted based on the accusations, not a reading of my words.
I believe Apollo5600 has shown himself to be a credit to the site.
I also believe some of these Santorum supporters need far more scrutiny and examination of their daily name calling and false accusations.
Jim I encourage you to offer that counsel to the admins. It's the worst behavior I have seen in my 13 years here.
I am not even sure I have ever responded to Apollo5600, but if he has a second account that is a no-no.
Seems like everyone wants to have a “troll-zapper” medal, and well, who doesn’t enjoy a really good zot,right?!
Just didn’t see it here based on the evidence provided.He wasn’t here long, but even long time posters have ridden the lightning.
I’m a Newt fan, and now, there are probably some Ron Paul fans laughing at me, based on the polling results. No matter, of the four running, he is the best overall man for the job, in my opinion, warts and all.
I am not a Rick fan—I just don’t think he has what it takes to take on Obama in the general. I also don’t like the fact that he is proud of being the “go-to” guy(also somewhat disputed) in the coup against Gingrich in 1999.
But if he is the GOP nominee, I’ll vote for him.
Come Nov. 6th, it is anybody but Obama. Or bust!
Yes. If we're going to go there, I can name two Santorum supporters worthy of immediate ZOTS.
NO, he is not the one I was referencing with a second account! That’s another very cowardly, very mendacious member.
Like you, I am all in for Newt and I’m not fond of Santorum at all, for many reasons which I don’t need to air.
I’m all for stopping Romney but I sure want Newt to be the winner! I want reasons to fight for our candidate and to work my fanny off for his election.
I don’t want to merely go vote for our nominee, but that’s all I’ll do if it’s Santorum and I won’t even do that much if it’s Romney.
Keep the faith! Don’t stop praying and GO NEWT!
You’re the best, dear exit82!!!
I called it as I saw it.
But hey... I’m sure you insiders will get your way and have Jim override the zot. It’s happened before.
And then - as has happened before - the poster goes on to troll again and is re-zotted.
Good luck on getting Apollo back. Here. I’ll help you as I have no hard feelings...
Jim. Please unzot Apollo.
Guess I was right.
This isn't about whether or not you were "right". Imho, it's about whether or not there is evidence at this time that Apollo56 should have been zotted.
No hard feelings, R2nd.
But make no mistake, I am no insider.
Like you, I call them as I see them.
And if Apollo deserves a zot in the future, I’ll be right there with you.
Right now, I’m all for getting back to the 2012 election as if our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor depended on it.
Well said! :)
But make no mistake, I am no insider.
What??? I thought you were a moderator also.
Oh well. I had nothing to do with Apollo getting the zot. And if he is unzotted, oh well.
I looked at your Wes Pruden thread and right away spotted precisely what you're referecing...lol. I'm sorry to add the (lol) but I had to laugh, as soon as I saw one in particular who's just like clock work on every thread! I'll wager that one is heavy on hitting the abuse button.
I haven't been called a Romney-bot, but I have been called "mean," by a Santorum supporter. LOL. Oh, and another who eventually got a well earned ZOT, called me a liar.
I’m not an insider and I haven’t pinged Jim at all.
Have a wonderful day.
Still waiting. You made an accusation, occompanied by an insult. Back it up.
#112 was for you, Mariner.
Hmmmm..... the zotting of Apollo5600 is a perfect example of why I’m doing a LOT of lucking and not much posting and I’m not discussing the candidates, not here on FR. My choice didn’t run and the others dropped out of are not looking too likely. So at this point, I’m can only get excited about one thing, and that is the ouster of the Marxist that currently is usurping the WH.
The end. :)

If this is the way FR moderators talk about other posters, I think my time and money is better spent elsewhere.
So long, FR.
Oh, the irony.
Of course Apollo5600 makes some sarcastic comments in a Mark Levin-ish way, but if this one went over the line for too many people, I think a warning would have sufficed. If his zot was reduced to a temporary "zot purgatory" I think that would suffice.
Apollo5600 also says stuff like Santorum offers medicore solutions because he has a mediocre intellect. That ticks off Santorum supporters I guess, but I believe it's true and I've said the same thing. And I'll reiterate that "American Constitutionalist" went much further over-the-top in one thread this week by posting multiple times that God was currently enacting vengeance on Newt supporters or something like that.
I also agree with what Apollo5600 said here:
This isnt about beauty contests or cults of personality. Its about fighting our main enemy, an oppressive federal government. Only Newt really has a platform that even begins to address it.
I am not now, nor have I ever been, a moderator.
Thank you very much.
