I frequent political blogs often. Mostly to get a public perspective, find out what people are thinking and exchange ideas. Very recently and very often throughout the years, I come across people on both “sides” that do a grave injustice to the debate by allowing their egos subvert the debates.
I realize that these blogs have moderators, but over the last few days I have noticed that they actually contribute to bullying and harassment while cloaked in anonymity. On two separate blogs I was bullied and harassed by other posters while the moderators either scrubbed my responses or allowed the others to continue their behavior.
On TPM, the poster is xxxxxx (I’ve redacted his name as I have figured out that these sociopaths merely want attention and I will not feed the animals), who has mistakenly allowed himself to believe that because he is a “liberal” that gives him the right to make stupid jokes and use terms like “baggot” (an insult to the Tea Party) and Libertardian (a term he uses to label people he does not understand). The bitter irony is this guy thinks he is clever and somehow superior while using the trite, juvenile terms just like the Neo Cons and Tea Party patriots. You tell me, how are you superior to anyone if you must resort to childish name calling? I find this kind of behavior egregious on both sides. When I tried to make this point multiple times over multiple days, I was moderated while he was allowed to carry on. Epic failure Talking Points Memo. You have really faltered over the last 3 years.
And Huffington Post? Don’t get me started. Their moderators have always sucked ass, but this weekend, every post I made to attempt to ask this man to stop bothering me was moderated out allowing him to continue.
Worthless pieces of shit. So, I am breaking away from that habit. I am sick of this bullshit. There are better places to exchange ideas without a bombardment of idiocy and prejudice. Think Progress, here I come.
And by the way, I feel the same way about the trolls on FOXNews blog and The Hill. Until you children can grow up and learn to have a mature dialogue, you deserve nothing but each other. Good luck with that. We’ll see how far you get with your petulant, grade school behavior. You are not helping anyone with that level of intellect.
