Rename Political Potpourri too...

LovinLife101 Speaks! No reason for anyone else to post, including me. Enjoy the following comments that make no sense and do not add to the discourse. I'm out.

"It" has really blossomed since its 'Being Pro Police' thread was moved from the Flint forum to here.

Yea.

Ignoring LL101 is the best response to him/her.

Recently there were many responses simply not addressing whatever the childish entity had written - on fav topics: gay copulation, anti-abortion tyranny and propaganda, cops behaving brutally.

One successful (and informative) technique to frustrate LL101 is “refuse and redirect” - which recently featured favorite foods.

Another successful technique to escape its reality-challenged rehash - after scoring your points is - “ignore and snore”. Then there’s nobody left to oppose.

I recommend posting as you would normally - until to do so becomes absurd. And that would be when there’s no new information to move the discussion/debate forward, or when LL101 is focused on a flight of fancy and fantasy.

And why Ll101 has not been banished to the Douchebag Repository long ago remains a mystery. He/she/it has crossed the line multiple times...

I believe if you look in the dictionary LL101's picture is next to the word as a perfect example of a douchebag

In a post that I think got lost in the purge last year, I remember MW addressing calls for LL101's relegation. I don't recall exactly what he said, but it was along lines of that he acknowledges that while LL often says things that many people disagree with, nothing he/she says rises to the level of trolling, and thus LL is a contributing member of these forums.

I think MW's subscribes to the "Stern" methodology. Even if something makes your blood boil, you still look at it, probably even more.

I appreciate MW's laissez faire attitude. Let the posts rise or fall on their own merits.

The last person dumped into the repository was posting racist comments about black people.
I would assume some level of harrassment will do it. If someone randomly posted pointless insults or threats that might do it.

It's a shame the 'ignore' or 'foe' function doesn't work by setting a cookie or something, instead of requiring you be logged in for it to take effect.

I will never post anything racist since I am incapable of racism. It’s against my nature. However, you’ll find full support for all minorities, ethnic groups, and LGBTQ+. You’ll find no profanity from me either.

Accurately name anyone on here who has been more bullied and received more death threats on here than me and I’ll stop posting forever.
