to all of the complainers:

so very few of you addressed the subject of the original post, very telling

as for this thread, it is posted in an appropriate forum, off topic non leaf discussions.

I don't believe that anyone was forced to click on any message in this thread and not one of you who are complaining were forced to post the complaints.

here's some advice, the next time you encounter a topic that isn't of interest to you, just click onto the next topic.

even a closed minded uneducated right wing neocon like me has compassion, I bet none of you liberals have even given this any thought.
While there's something to be said for the bag, there is absolutely nothing to be said for the way it's been used as a weapon here.
This user is now on my ignore list and I've requested (s)he be banned.

To the non-Republicans or non-Libertarians on this site I offer a heartfelt apology for being even remotely part of a belief system that spawns behavior such as this user demonstrates.

Personally I've already solved the problem for this and all future threads. :lol:

The question of aid and compassion for the homeless is a worthwhile discussion and anyone who's tired of the OP's trolling can easily put him on ignore status.

Locking this thread would be a good first step. If apvbguy can't play nice in the future, more steps can always be taken.

Let's not close threads because some folks have strong opinions. If we are going to do that let's start with the gun discussion thread. If a particular user is threatening and repeatedly insulting others they will be warned, if that does not work they will get a temporary ban. Let's also please not report disagreements of view points as spam.

I can assure everyone on this forum that if they do not respond to those that attack them they will go away.

This thread, which has nothing to do with the car or EVs, was posted as a provocation by someone who has dared the moderators to ban him.
But you guys just sit on your hands while he continues to name call and act righteous when his bad behavior is pointed out.

what is next? pictures of fetuses?

It seems that more than one member in this thread is participating in less than appropriate discourse. I'm not here to be a parent or decide who started it so If it continues I'm simply going to temporarily ban the next person that engages abusive antagonistic behavior toward individuals. I would also like to remind folks that all of these posts are indexed in Google for eternity for all the public to see.

I'll say this one last time, ignore and do not respond to those you have issue with and they will go away.

The issue isn't strong opinions (which are fine) it is expressing those opinions in a way which is derogatory of another poster and purposely provoking others. That is the kind of behavior I would like to see reined in when it is excessive and ongoing.

Clearly that has already been addressed. Unfortunately some choose to ignore the warnings.
