Thank You, Art!!!!

I know you have a thankless task dealing with these topics, a job I for one would not want for all the money in the world. We've seen a quite wild and wooly political campaign, with anything goes it seems in comments from both sides. I freely admit I've posted replies here more out of anger than I'd usually do on a public venue. Thank you for cleaning the most vile and insulting comments through it all. I for one appreciate your patience through it all. Perhaps now that it's over, we can start again with a clean slate? That those who post here can do so in a manner that we'd use if we were having the same discussion in front of our mother? I for one pray that is possible. I pledge to try and stay on the "high road." How about it people, can we all do the same?

quite a few posters no longer comment and there has to be some cause

could be the 'I know you are but what am I' that goes on by a few on a daily basis on almost every thread...could at least keep it to one thread eh...smh

Maybe spread the word the policy has changed to "no charge to disparage"

NasCarNut, you are correct , you do not have to subscribe to the paper to post. However when the free online version of the Times was canceled an few years ago there was a brief period when you couldn't post without paying, that policy has been changed. Perhaps "pay to say" was a misleading term but the fact remains that quite a few posters no longer comment and there has to be some cause.

Harry did you ever entertain the idea that your posts just are not that interesting nor as clever as you might view them?

As exhibited again by conect the more things change...well, let's face it. Conect DOESN'T change Tediousness personified indeed.

"He's stuck it in you and he still has time remaining to break it off in you"..Classy eh?....... How utterly typical , the only missing is the usual quote from its slate of right-wing nut-job web sites !

I believe that the "pay to say" policy had a lot to do with it

don't believe you have to pay to post on the forums...

Harry - I wouldn't be paying for that tux just yet if I were you. Obama still has some cards to play and you TOO may be in for a surprise. He has used you. He's stuck it in you and he still has time remaining to break it off in you.

And how much more hate filled propaganda can one ingest without barfing everywhere ?

Sorry, but I can't resist this one.

"As to the absence of some Liberal posters formerly responding here, isn't it just possible that Obama & Co. have taken things so far out into the Progressive swamp that, even they, find their actions indefensible?"

Maybe they're all out getting measured for tuxes and gowns for Hillary's inaugural ball.

slinky - How many more pseudonyms do you have to select from when you take the one you're currently using too far...again?

Good afternoon, absolem.

Kunectdots, Slinky has company.

Face it , you just hate to be told that your extreme right-wing world is warped ! The sooner you accept that the better off you'll be .

Posted 131 days ago.

And yet nothing that is against TOS . Just things that accurately descibes some here who arent living in reality ! The defense rests ! Shine on you crazy diamond !

HARRY - You charge that some are "unskilled, in the fine old art of rational discourse".

(EXHIBIT 'A')- "your idiotic rabbit hole !", "the rabid nut cases","right-wing whacko", "the extreme right-wing garbage you post", " the trolls that have perverted tastes", "What a fool !", "these brainwashed minions", "those poor mind gutted souls !",

All very recent comments from the Defendant, one presently known as "slinky".

The Prosecution rests.

"The forums are still here but they are not the same. Many posters are gone, Oneill , Tessie, and Stickhauler are just a few I can think of off the top of my head, they had valuable ideas and opinions that are now silent."

Judging by their reactions to "valuable ideas and opinions," which range from ignoring them to burying them in irrelevant drivel to attacking those who posted them, many posters here are uninterested, or unskilled, in the fine old art of rational discourse.

You've just gotta luv these brainwashed minions , if you have a differing opinion and point out where their vitriol comes from , why you'd think their world had come to an end ! Amazing job that the republinut propaganda machine has done as evidenced by those poor mind gutted souls !

Posted 131 days ago.

What a fool ! So youre putting the blame all on one person ? I'd say you have a share in things as well, with your rabid right-wing addiction !

"Grow up and get over yourself !" (quotation from Munster, aka ohwiseone, aka slinky), said over the grave of the Parkersburg News & Sentinel's forums.
