Just seems strange to complain about someone trying to hijack a thread and then help them hijack it.

Never mind. It's too damn early in the morning for this.

Yes--folks do die when it's cold out. And some are homeless.

But some do go inside when it's cold (if room available at the shelters). Hopefully they can take advantage of it, or their city sends out volunteers to try to get them inside. I know my city takes that very seriously.

I don't know what HD meant. He was probably of the opinion, that if they are cold enough they'll go elsewhere; and not bother anyone. I don't know.

Like I said, I hope they get indoors during this cold, or if they refuse to, the volunteers at least convince them to take blankets or warm clothes that are provided.

I just thought HD didn't mean death when he made that statement. But--you all know him better than I do.

Hey, babe, if I can still taste the toothpaste, it's too early. Don't care if the sun's going down.

When it gets terribly cold in any major city, some number of homeless people will die. This is an indisputable fact.

HD is happy that it will be getting cold in his city because of the affect it will have on the homeless.

You can be charitable if you want but either HD is so goddamn stupid that he doesn't know the first point is true, or he's pure evil. And honestly, if someone of his means doesn't know the first point is true, fuck 'em.

I just don't agree with your interpretation that HD wants them dead.
I don't think he wants them dead either.

I just don't think he gives a shit if they do. So long as he doesn't have to see them, it doesn't matter what happened to them.

But then, he does say that there are some times when it is not entirely unreasonable to kill and injure hundreds of people and children in order to make a political point, so he may very well see their deaths as some sort of noble sacrifice he is more than willing to let them make in order to keep his streets clear of undesirables.

@Steronz and @k9bfriender: I admit that when it gets cold her, it will be kind-of-nice to not to have to deal with the folks begging for money every morning at the Dunkin', but I don't wish them ill harm.

In fact--I see one of the guys every morning and I buy a cup of coffee a couple of times a week.

So far as HD--like I said, you folks know him better.

You both have a good afternoon.

You say that you don't wish them harm, but you admit that it is "kind-of-nice" when they are suffering from harm because it is more convenient for you.

If that guy you see every morning disappeared and you never saw him again, would you even wonder what his fate was, much less care?

And you too, have a great afternoon. On this cold rainy day, I hope that you find yourself comfortable and warm, even if you don't carry that hope for those around you.

Has Ditka ever described himself as a Constitutionalist, strict or otherwise? Asking for a friend.

I've read multiple references to HD having no qualms about the OKC bombing.

Here's The Post in all its glory...

In his defense, he did palliate his endorsement of domestic terrorism and mass murder with the phrase "not entirely unreasonable," so let's not paint the guy as some kind of monster.

Excellent, thanks.
Finally got the chance to read the four-pager, and of course HD doesn't make an appearance, despite it being a non-pit thread.

I've been reporting HD's posts that cross the line, it's easier to get mod attention now that he's been previously suspended for sealioning. But given nothing is happening on the impeachment front today, why not give him a little bit of rope right now?

I honestly don't grok why he's still allowed to post here.

I can see from what other people quote in the inquiry thread that Ditka is throwing around a certain name. Is that the whistleblower's alleged name?

Worthless, cowardly, rape-enabling piece of shit Ditka blames a woman for "death threats" because she came forward and talked about her experiences:

God what a worthless, misogynistic scumbag.

He's got everyone dancing on his strings like puppets.

Look, none of you have some gotcha that's going to win the argument. He will continue to ignore any valid points, and sidetrack it every time with nitpicks or tangents. Post about the hearings, and just quit with the efforts to get HD to admit he's wrong.

I have a feeling we're about to hear from the mods with a big announcement about HD. I'll give them time to discuss it and do their duties. We'll see.

As one of the guilty parties, I'll step forward and admit my culpability.

In my defense Ditka lines up his arguments like ducks in a shooting gallery, and sometimes is fun to plink away at them, knocking one down after another, even if no matter how many you put down the ducks just keep coming.

Oh yeah, I engage with him when I'm feeling like it.

Every post he makes has a minuscule chance of him flaming out. He isn't going to just go away -- eventually the mods will make him change his behavior, one way or another; but it isn't going to happen if he posts his BS in a vacuum.

I hear ya. The counter arguments are so obvious, it's exceedingly hard to resist, or to even realize what you're doing until you've hit "submit reply". But stay strong, my friend!

I think we need to do a better job as debaters if we want it to be clear enough for the mods.

For example, I think the simple question "why are the whistleblower's political views pertinent" is fine. If that was simply repeated when he gave a BS answer or attempted to deflect, his sealioning would be obvious. But I cringe every time someone says "it would be like if..." with yet another analogy to drug dealers or trials or anonymous tips. Your analogies might be great and a useful tool in a good-faith debate. But all you're doing here with an analogy is giving him ammunition for a tangent. "Well, that's different because..." or "yes, let's talk more about this other circumstance."

As long as people continue to ask him questions that give the opportunity for tangents, it can look like he's responding. You really have to pay attention to realize he's being very selective in what questions he answers. Make it easier for the mods - ask simple questions that he won't answer, and skip the "gotchas".

Just a feeling, based on his recent posts in the impeachment thread. Especially the disgustingly misogynistic thread about Ford. I believe the final straw for Starving Artist was a similar sort of misogynistic, victim-blaming post.

Not to mention that note from Jonathan, which should have been a warning for violating instructions from Bone.

I sent Bone a PM about that.

I think most of the participants of this thread will respectfully refrain from perpetuating the outing of the potential whistleblower. It's a lost cause, since the trolls are determined to out him anyway, but at least I don't need to participate in it.

Yes, that's the name that <bravely checks the internet> RealClearInvestigations, a division of RCP, has put out based on anonymous sources. Nearest I can tell it's all very circular -- republicans asked Bill Taylor about him back in October during his deposition, and then cited that as "people are talking about this name, it must be true."

Personally, RCI doesn't have any kind of reputation, and no other (reputable) media outlets have backed up their reporting.

I'm not asking anyone to out the guy. I'm asking if that's what Ditka is doing. Holy shit.

Thanks steronz. I think Ditka should get the fucking boot for that bullshit, and I've never called for anyone to get the boot before this.

Ditka admits he is comfortable hijacking and deflecting.

Team, I would like to invite you to my little ATMB sidebar discussion The Economics of Trolling, the SDMB, and Moderator Decisions, in which we try to build a business case for or against trolling. Given that his actions result in real-world revenue consequences for the SDMB, I am interested in a discussion which focuses on whether or not Ditka can generate more revenue for the SDMB via high engagement than he loses in lost subscriber revenues. I am interested in all opinions, especially those with experience in business and social media marketing.

Lol, Ditka is already going full Kavanaugh. I think he recognizes the nature of the threat here, knowing that if we can make the case he loses the Board money...

Team? Shouldn't that be 'hive'?

It's sort of pathetic and whiny to be honest. At least you were able to call him an asshole outside of the pit without a warning. I'm sure they didn't want to lose your $5.
