Political discussions or troll venting

Recommended Posts

I joined this forum hoping for real discussions. I hoped to understand people who have different opinions than me. I thought I might learn something to change my opinions.  This forum has been disappointingly similar to other discussions taken over by trolls. Ad hominem comments tell me the writer has nothing to add to a discussion but his/her own negative feelings and enjoys seeing his own sarcasm in print rather than participating in respectful, intelligent discussion.

It's been a problem here for some time, and by the same people over and over again. There are some willing to have that discussion, but again there are a few who will work to derail the topic for whatever reason.  I feel your pain for sure.

If you encounter trolling, Report it and ignore it.   Do not respond to that which you perceive to be trolling.

That would end to to be about 1/3 of what is posted on this forum.
