    Every once in a while people have to be stuck up for here.
    Fine. He needles people for a reaction. He's dishonest with his intent, and he brings the board down with his presence.

    He also drags on Brian Cashman in some other threads.

      I don't really understand the moderation policy on this board. It seems to have very little tolerance for personal attacks, and yet some posts are clearly that.

        This coming from a guy who habitually needles HfxBob about not being Canadian.

        CP is what he is. Sometimes it's fun to have someone in here stirring the drink. Other times it's fun to ignore. No reason to get excited either way, IMO.

          Except I was sincere when I posited if that particular poster was actually from / living in Canada. Maybe that was too personal, maybe not, but I found it to be an important question to ask if we are to value eachothers opinions.

            Eh. I just assume all personal details from all posters are lies. Makes it easier. (j/k. kind of)

            But why should I care if he's from Canada, Morocco, or Iowa?

                  How many times does ojo need to be warned before he's actually suspended? You warned him last time, given plenty of rope, and he's back doing the exact same thing. Hurling non-stop unprovoked personal attacks. He knows what he's doing, and he'll continue to do it as he gets away with it.

                    Trolling used to mean something now people who never even fought in the forum wars just use it to mean someone saying something they don’t like

                      It's just not as simple as this. Decades of slavery, oppression, and systemic racism/lies have led to widespread governmental and pharmaceutical distrust among minorities.

                      You can't just wipe out decades of this type of oppression and distrust because of how easy something is logistically. That would be like saying someone should just make an online appointment at the DMV for a voter ID, you know?

                        Voter ID is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Vaccines are in a different category.

                        It's a pretty weak comparison.

                          That's not the comparison being drawn, but OK.

                            Vaccines have been shown to be effective.

                            Voter IDs have not been shown to reduce the incidence of voter fraud.

                              Agreed, and again, that's not the parallel being drawn.

                                You see, ClownPickle, the thing is.........if you don't like something, it's racist, but if you DO like something, and someone identifies a parallel, it's a false equivalency.

                                It's really very simple.
