Trolls R Us Resurrections

The oppressors are certainly morally culpable for the acts of those that wield the knife. But the flip side, that those that wield the knife are therefore absolved of blame, does not hold for me.

But I have no intention of going at this hammer and tong for thirty posts. My opinion is just that and this is a far-off-the-beaten-path hijack of even this random omnibus thread.

Yeah, this is an unneeded hijack.

Back on topic: if a slave trolls on this board, do we ban the slave or their master? :wink:

Not as a mod, but as a poster reading along. Can you please take this interesting hijack to its own thread?

Yeah I think it’s an interesting discussion, maybe a great one for GD. And it has nothing to do with trolls. The suggestion that Max_S is a troll because he doesn’t find white supremacy inherently detestable is the closest that discussion ever got to this thread topic, and itself had nothing to do with slavery, let alone the morality of a rebelling slave’s actions.

New poster likes Elon Musk. I’m sure he’s completely legit.

Combative attitude in his thread about socialist utopias too. This trock’s coming in with guns blazing.

You’ve gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
You better read between the lines
In case you need it when you’re older

You wanna know what socialism is
You want us to show you
You wanna feel what socialism is
You know we can show you

Folks. Don’t feed the troll.

He’ll be gone soon enough.

And the thread has been closed.

Closed and cornfielded.

I think we did a pretty good job with that one! It definitely didn’t get what it wanted.

So, did we ever figure out what Socialism was? :rofl:

'When Socialists complain about Capitalism, they describe Capitalism.

When Capitalists complain about Socialism, they describe Capitalism.’

So… probably not.

I was getting ready to tell him, but then the mods seized the means of conversation.

Bravo, Bravo!

very nice

I defined it as a belief that the child of the corn in question was a troll. Not only did it not refute that definition, it took it with it when it disappeared into the corn.

Workers of the world unite!

Magnificent! Well spoken, Johnny Bravo Marx.

Dyslexics of the World, Untie!

Looks like saucywench got a one month suspension for saying that China is a country full of subhumans.

(She got a one week suspension once before because of her behavior in this thread.)
