Well, that’s kind of harsh...”nothing new to offer” and fairly absurd since you are judging my “worthiness to the conservative cause” off of one post on an anonymous message board. Honestly, I’d rather talk about elections. I was just surprised that people let themselves get so worked up over someone. The best thing they could have ever done is ignored him. It’s the easiest way to make someone go away. If his threads would have gotten zero replies, he would have stopped posting them. Think about it.
It seems pretty absurd that you would offer suggestions on how to deal with someone like Pissant without stopping to wonder why three days later we are still mourning his loss, in spite of the fact that others I am sure, but I personally had completely had my fill of his antics and was considering leaving FR rather than be forced to cope with the issue any further.
If it was only his threads which were drawn from the most putrid anti-Palin, DU feverswamp, clap-trap, distortion sources, that would be one thing, but the guy also dove into other threads and spewed his poison there too. He ended up making the most vile comments and after being provisionally banned, and being warned, begged, and lectured, he ended up gone. In the process, his name and his point of view became both a joke and frankly, his end took the fuse that anyone who would defend his behavior or mimic it and burnt that to a nub.
Because of this, if you say things that remind folks of him (that you are a candidate to replace him), expect to get whacked.
As for proposing the George Bush defense of ignore folks who tell lies and hate you and they will go away. You remember how well that worked for him. It is the advice of RINO's and the Conservative Elites who want to go along to get along with the MSM. And, a load of crap.
Folks who know the situation know that the FR management did everything possible to keep him and way beyond because his work had merit, but he truly had become deranged and was damaging FR.
Think about it.
