FanPost

Please clarify your posting policy.

So, a truculent tool can post an Occam's Razor-defying piece of "journalistic" palaver filled with almost every logical fallacy ever conceived, then proceed to lash out virulently against anyone that does not share his addled opinion, without regard for the dialectic, and the thread is allowed to continue, unabated.

Another poster contributes a cartoon that is not only an apt description of the methodology of the original poster, but uses the very words of that poster in its composition and subsequent quote, and that post gets censored as though Captain Beatty himself were in command of the fire brigade.

Perhaps the big picture eludes me. Perhaps I should have called others a waste of skin and hair or told them to go fuck themselves. Apparently boorish behavior is quite acceptable, but satire from their "own petard" is an offense of Bowdlerian proportion.

GMAFB.
