    That is entirely out of line. 'Zumi doesn't attack anyone more than she attacks me - but you don't see me demanding that she be kicked, banned, or whatever. The woman is looney tunes, yeah, but so are others. Stop acting stupid, please. Free speech is free speech, even for those we disagree with. You know that, or should know that.

    Better that you call for Aristarchus' many puppets to be brought under control.

    Yeah, yeah... we all know about you and the seekrit krush you have for Azuma - like how you learned in grade school that the little girl who would punch you was really an admirer.

    ...And how you only post racissss rants to see if she is still out there noticing you and caring about you and the drivel you author.

    I am starting to think that the doom-sayers pronouncing that SN has degenerated past salvageability might be on to something.

        See this is what I like about this little corner of the net - for the most part people do the right thing, even if it's not their preferred thing.

        Though the quality of the trolls has deteriorated significantly I have to say. Ah well, can't have it all.

      It seems like it got a little better upon TMB leaving, probably soured the fun for a lot of the trolls. We still have EF or JMH shitposting their racist globalist rants, and we have Runaway keeping us updated on the RWNJ Fox News fear campaigns. Maybe he is trying to fill the void left from hemo rage quitting? Oh right can't leave out khallow who is still pushing the pro-oil pro-capitalism drivel while ignoring any references to reality. Even so it seems like discussions have mellowed out a tiny bit.

    They may be lunatics, but they're =our= lunatics, and the place wouldn't be the same without them.

    And as you say about free speech. Even of those calling for the silencing of others.

    And there is no Alkibiades to come back and save us from ourselves.
