Decent on message boards

I can understand why many of you call me the "biggest troll" on this board. Recently, I have been messing around some other boards as of recently, where I have been part of the majority opinion. And while, I would love to say that, I completely sympathized with these so called "trolls", I found myself reacting in the same way many (and certainly not all) of you guys do to me.

Lets face it. I admit, I know i am not going to change your mind, and you aren't going to change mine. And, honestly, anytime I am going to express an unpopular view, I am going to be personally attacked by a small percentage of the people on the board. And, admittedly, in the past, I have reacted reasonably well in some cases, and in ways i am not so proud of in others.

In the end, I justify going on this site, because this is educational to me. I am willing to learn. So i ask a few questions:

1. How would the conservatives on this board respond express a dissenting opinions on a liberal message board, that you know they don't want to hear?

2. How do the liberal/ progressive minded, "hold their tongues", on this board? How do you express dissenting opinions?

3. To both sides . . . how does one deal with a troll?

We don't need to go on liberal message boards to be "educated" and express dissenting opinion.

We understand perfectly what the Left wants to do to our country...thats why we are conservatives.

HTH.

All I know is your way wrong. In fact you are dangerously wrong and we cannot politely sit by why people like you mindlessly (I know you have no idea how wrong you are or how badly these socialistic ideas will damage our country) champion the destroying of freedom and liberty for the purpose of power and control!
It is an abomination!
The time for polite discourse has past!

Look man, here's where I think your problem is:
-You come across as a tad arrogant, and take yourself too seriously
-You've insulted respected people on this board
-Instead of chiming in on various posts and building up a reputation for being articulate, you've just gone balls-out and made it your personal mission to convince everyone that the Constitution and founding fathers are moot
-You have '07 in your name

Everyone on here knows I'm an America-hating, socialist, liberal, but I never get accused of trolling. I also rarely start new threads, as most topics started by a liberal are usually seen as inflammatory. I think you should just lay low, offer fact-based opinions (hint: post links) in various threads, and don't take this board too seriously.

You should even take a day or two posting on the general board just to get a feel for the level of seriousness that things are taken around here (low).

This. Very much this. And as I do with loaf, I will disagree with you often. But disagreement is crux of political dialogue, I suppose.


edited for clarity.

this is all i read, because the rest is probably just bull**** like the rest of your posts.

you cannot possibly believe the bull**** that you spout, or you really are as retarded as you come off as.

well, one thing is very true in this sentence.
