I have to take from MLW.  Pumping August is producing less clean water than dust these days and Argus has gone crazy on me again.

Just because I want to put alt-rights in ail does that mean I'm not for freedom ???:D :D :D

Sir argus has found a near perfect audience for his alt. rightness, and then the perfect combo with that is some religious nonsense and the admin. is on your side. He and Betsy must be ruling the roost over there. :D

What happens on any forum is that you will not attract fresh blood if there is no genuine debate or free flow of ideas? There is no point of a forum if the same few members cluster phack  on the same views. So  we must ask ourselves are the discussions on this board or any board seeking new members flee flowing and if not why not?  Or have have they bogged  down to the same few  posters trying to impose their ideology on the board and if so why....

Surely  to attract "smart" members they need to see respectful free flowing debate  You ever notice when any of us  becomes a regular on a forum we develop this familiarity of contempt  for other regulars and short cut our responses with insults and !!!! marks or comments like "that's bull ****" and ending the comment there?

I would suggest we have to push each other on any site to explore different opinions in debate. Debate is a great thing  but it requires we avoid personal attacks and actually want to take time to consider the other side of an argument not dismiss it without thought.

We weeded out a troll.  We're ok.  We need more people though.  I'll post on my FB feed next.

We did not. Mr. Taylor did MH with due respect. The self limiting problems on this board speak for themselves.

To be specific you and I know who comes on this forum to use insults to block responses and not debate them.

It speaks loudly and it limits new members and MH all I can do and most do is avoid communications with such people at this point unless its absolutely necessary and
its caused good people to leave this forum.

No point any of us denying that.

I suppose so, but the community did help in that you didn't have groups of people storming off the board in protest.

do you remember that time I played a sample list of your insults thrown... from just the one thread! Ah yes, you clearly have a most self-serving recall/memory, hey! Do you and I know the guy on this forum who regularly engages in GishGallop, in dropping 1500-3000+ wordTurds... all purposely intended to deflect/distract and stifle legitimate discussion, all intended to monopolize threads? You know, that would be YOU!

poor lil' Rue, always the victim!  ;D
