I still enjoy it but I honestly don't think many of the people there actually believe what they say. They make too many horrendously dumb arguments and obvious lies that I think there may be some just out to make conservatives look like total idiots.

Good Canadian Conservatives are about as centrist as it gets.  The populists are killing conservatism.  It's not good for the Liberal party either as it makes it too easy for them to win and win and win.

I commend your efforts I have observed to stand up to those idiots.

I'd agree mostly, and on the flip-side the good Canadian liberals/left-wingers are more centrist too.  The intersectional social justice types are killing progressivism.  The Chretien and Obama types are quickly becoming a rare species.

I try to stay the away from either extreme ends of the spectrum.

Another good reason to stay away from MLW

Once you realize that every post you make to someone is a tiny bit of work you're doing for them, you will be more selective I think  :-\
this is exactly why I rarely post anymore. I would rather have conversations with people who come to the conversation with some amount of education on the topic rather than just being an opinionated, know-nothing boowhard on the internet then demanding that I enlighten them with sources and reference to common knowledge that they readily ignore. Itís a massive waste of energy.

Just took a peak over there. Your summation remains accurate, at least regarding the bulk of content.

Had a look over there just now and I must say again how appreciative I am of mien fuhrer CA for hosting a little playground for the taxme types etal, and more importantly of JMT for providing a forum where the adults can discuss issues.

JMT leaving the forum to fend for itself will wreck this place eventually.   Without proper moderation this place is doomed to go the way of MLW.

I say the complete opposite. What's one nice thing about this place vis a vis mlw is the fact JMT said at the outset he wasn't going to be looking over everybody's shoulder and sending people to the penalty box if they weren't right wing enough, such as CA does. It has had ample opportunity to fall into mlw mode and it hasn't, thankfully, and likely won't. Many of the folks here, came from there, for reasons just outlined. 

Generally speaking it seems people who aren't alt. right idiots are capable of moderating themselves.

We did have the Vid episode a couple of months back, but we weathered it.

Do I recall correctly that someone hijacked your avatar (and others) at that time?

People here were complete a-holes to Argus and Rue, it wasn't moderated properly, and now they don't post here.  If you guys want an echo-chamber, congrats.
