Mrs. Garrison, I don't know what course of action I'm supposed to take on posts that are now 4+ months old in closed threads.

Yes, I don't catch everything (and have been up front about that from the start). Yes, I can be better (and have been up front about that from the start).

It was the right thing to do in the eyes of some. You didn't agree, got it. They're shitty people, I agree. They're doing shitty things, I agree. The people that sent them 10,000 to fix a building that was vandalized did NOT fund them.
This is not meant as a personal attack on you, and I don't want you to think that's my point when I post about it.

But it very much infuriates me, and hearing how badly things have gone in NC so far just makes my blood boil over the issue. Both the GOP's efforts to suppress the vote and the spineless "I need to prove I'm on the moral high ground" nonsense of sending them money.

Yes, you absolutely should.
What if I believe that she is a witch? Guess i do not deserve my own opinion?

Is this a representative chunk of votes for those states? Or do certain districts get their votes counted sooner than others, and those early counts are red districts?
Some context, you gurus!?
Different precincts report at different times, so they come in chunks. So early returns can be from very obvious Trump/Clinton areas and not be indicative of how the overall trends will look.

Oh, come on. Now you're just arguing for the sake of arguing.

Maybe you just need a little help?

As for course of action, maybe try being a little more even in your moderating? For instance, the examples i have provided you in the links above are quite possibly more offensive than HRC's head photoshopped on a pigs body

I still want to believe that the Hoosier's Hate Pence crowd can't sway this, but I HIGHLY doubt it.

Indiana isn't "Deep" red. They went for Obama last time around. It's a very weird state. But USUALLY goes red.

I don't find it to be one at all. I actually get your anger. I'm furious that the goodwill did nothing to get them to stop being jackasses. I still think it was the right move, but I'm incredibly angry with their behavior, and I'm incredibly angry that they just don't seem to care. Not surprised, just angry. But, I am totally OK with us disagreeing on the underlying issue, as long as you know that I'm just as mad as you are about how much of a pack of bastards they're being.

The End is Nigh: US Presidential Election Thread Part XVI

Can this debate about moderation be taken elsewhere? I'm anxious enough tonight without having to sift through this.

Both of those posts about the 'c' word are from people who live in Australia, where the 'c' word doesn't carry the same taboo weight it does in the states.

As for the others, I've called out each one of those posters on other occasions.

Edit: if you want to continue this conversation about modding, Mrs. Garrison, PM me, or go to the thread on moderation.

They went for Obama in 2008, in 2012 they reverted and went for Romney.

Clinton Remark on Kennedy’s Killing Stirs Uproar - The New York Times

Quote:
It was in the context of discussions about her political future that Mrs. Clinton made the remarks on Friday to the editorial board of The Sioux Falls Argus Leader. She had said that some people whom she did not name were trying to push her out of the race, but she noted that historically many races had gone on longer than hers.

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right?” she said. “We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.”

Bill Burton, a spokesman for the Obama campaign, which has refrained from engaging Mrs. Clinton in recent days, said her statement “was unfortunate and has no place in this campaign.”

Privately, aides to Mr. Obama were furious about the remark.

Concerns about Mr. Obama’s safety led the Secret Service to give him protection last May, before it was afforded to any other presidential candidate, although Mrs. Clinton had protection, too, in her capacity as a former first lady. Mr. Obama’s wife, Michelle, voiced concerns about his safety before he was elected to the Senate, and some black voters have even said such fears weighed on their decision of whether to vote for him.

Walk away from this thread for a bit and look what happens. Complaing about posts on here despite not reporting stuff to the mods is like complaining the cops didn't investigate your house being robbed even though you never rang 911.

Now can we hurry up and have some meaningful election results. I'm on tenterhooks here.

Imagine if a TRUMP voter had done this about HRC, i suspect there would be some "vacations" handed out from by the Mod along with a massive pile-on from all of the HRC supporters.

Here is another instance:

Now we're calling Bernie Sanders the "c" word? Classy!

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ml#post8081891

I don't even know what to say about this post, so many insults in one place, wow

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ml#post8072172

Should i keep going?
Wooooo I made the list twice

Glad my choice of words upsets the "this country is too PC" crowd.
