Most people at Daily Paul sux and I'm leaving forever!

These types of posts are nothing more than sociopathic attempts to lash out and harm people for daring to have differing opinions. And they NEVER actually leave!

I suggest a 1-month temp ban on all people who compose and post such "Goobye.. I Hate You and You Suck" forum topics. This would put a quick end to such unhinged and unnecessary emo rants.

It's getting old and looks kooky to outsiders...

The DP rules...

from the "Daily Paul House RULES and POSTING GUIDELINES"

---------------
Rules

1) No profane, disrespectful or divisive language
...
5) Do not engage in flame wars, PERSONAL ATTACKS on other members, incite or encourage violence, post spam or advertisements.
...
7) No Assholes™
...
"Failure to follow these rules can result in banishment from the community."
----------------

Nearly every one of the "I hate everybody here and i'm leaving" posts violate all of those rules.

I'm not even asking for a "ban on particular behavior" as you stated. I'm just asking that if someone says they are going to leave then do a TEMPORARY ban that ensure they are held to their word for a short term that would cause them to pause and think about it before posting.

"If I post this emo rant and declare I am leaving then I will not be able to return for one month -- maybe I should refrain."

That's not too much to ask at all.

I guess if you are against rules then you would have no problem with me pointing my fingers a few inches from your eyes and yelling cusswords loudly at you for one hour every day. Remember, you are against rules. So if I did that to you should just shut up and let me do it. Or you would be an inconsistent hypocrite.

Stop being an enabler for anti-social behavior...

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

I agree

And i do care about outsiders since I was once an outsider myself. After reading the AMAZING posts on all types of information here, it help woke me up! There was less conspiracy talk and factions within the movement when I was lurking here before I even signed up. I wish i can contribute as much as they did and I believe we should be doing our best to contribute productive information to this website and for liberty in general.

"you're a funny dude, but who gives a fuck about that? I don't care about someone's wit, I care about the courage of their heart and the honesty of their mind."

before i found this site i only had my best friend

He and I have been supporters of Dr. Paul and the liberty movement for quite awhile. I read a few posts on here in passing and soon after became a frequent dp'er. Took me awhile to register but glad and thankful I did. I never really visited any of the other "fan sites" related to Dr. Paul, I just scoured the interweb for news and came back here to see what others thought. Thisisturningintoarant /endpost

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

I couldn't care less about "outsiders"but otherwise I agree 100%

One thing that ever person who claims to love Freedom and Liberty must learn to practice is Tolerance! I'm far from perfect but I try very hard in my daily life to let people live their lives the way they choose. As long as their personal decisions or behaviors are not a source of violence against another individual and as long as they are not damaging property that belongs to someone else, I must tolerate things that others choose to do. I'm not obligated to hang around someone that has habits or behaviors that I don't particularly care for...but if I want to remain free to pursue happiness in whatever manner I choose I must tolerate others. The habits and behaviors of others are none of my business. (absent the violence or property damage I mentioned above)

Creative Post weebles :)

If these people...

are banned then they are effectively being silenced for having a different opinion. I do agree theses posts are ridiculous and that is why I always find myself posting comments. That's my right. as it is their's to express themselves.

"What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man."

I am sick of threads talking about their "feelings"

about other peoples threads about their "feelings" about them leaving.

Agreed. Too much "boo-hoo melodramatics" are so...

annoying.

Grow some "nads", crybabies...

Now fewer will suck

Now fewer will suck.

Now that "word" is a very BAD connotation right there, and no...

I'm not going there.

I agree in part...

The 1st part... But not the ban part.
Let them have their say. It will only let all see either credibility or lack thereof...
I started not to look at this one but was overwhelmed with curiosity!
my 2¢

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Just to clarify you agree with the 1st part...

sociopathic attempts to lash out and harm people for daring to have differing opinions.

So you agree that these people are intent on harming others? Not to somehow try to SHAKE THEM AWAKE for their own good?

It will only let all see either credibility or lack thereof...

As I commented below: How does not being able to predict the future and then in an angry outburst saying I'm leaving question my credibility?

Now I could care less what anyone thinks of ME personally... however I do like to have friends. My point is to point out these inconsistencies with how some folks define reality.

What an odd post!? Glad you are not in congress also!

There have been relatively few such posts over the years... they are not a problem.

Sooo..... let me get this straight. You want to ban people from posting what you just entitled your own post!

It seems your short fuse with them balances off their short fuse with us!

If your wish had been granted, you would not have been able to post your complaint.

I vote no though I vote alone! We have all had the blessing of the best of teachers! Try to emulate the truth for which he has stood so long.

Ron Paul 2016... Get use to it!

Up-voted your comment.

Folks I think we should just read what people say instead of even looking at that "votes" as it seems pretty apparent there are a bunch of trolls around here just trying to sway public opinion for their own tyrannical agenda.

Only a troll with his/her own agenda could down-vote a comment which supports first amendment free speech.

and my thread just got shut down ...

...I thought the debate is still ongoing, and my points are relevant as the situation is evolving....

I was accused of "beating my meat"...what should my response be?

Your problem is that you've become an Alex Jones stalker

a broken record isn't something people listen to.

I hit the argument....

....from many different angles, and spoke from a "troops on the ground" perspective....aka....the DELEGATE battle primarily....nobody has answered, except the guys who see/discern what I have thus far....plus....last nights over-the-top performance made my case stronger.....

Let's see what happens....let's try yelling "you're a sheeple and a coward" at the Republicans whose TRUST we've earned from the Tom Woods, Peter Schiff approach.

Perhaps I'll back off when Judge Napolitano has Alex on as a guest...

unless it is really catchy

It's just people having a tantrum

for not being able to control other people

Someday they will realize that beating people over the head with insults never works.

It doesn't mean they should be passive. It just means they have to work harder at communicating their ideas and persuading people.

Impatient people bash heads and slam doors.

People like Ron Paul are able to create a huge movement and he did it by reasoning with people.

AJ shouted and yelled but if you notice he didn't call names to the people at large. His yelling got the attention of those living in the land of nod. It slapped them awake for a bit. Some will stay awake.

Alex is a megaphone and Ron Paul is a symphony. We need both of them.

completely disagree

for not being able to control other people

As I said on another board. I did it because I've been sorely unable to get people's attention to the REAL ISSUES facing this country. That was not pre-determined however that was obviously the result after self-analysis.

AJ AJ AJ AJ AJ.... ugh...

Maybe you are just not very good at it

No one said reaching people and changing minds were easy

But if you aren't being an effective communicator and motivator then why not reexamine your approach?

What a horrible thing to say

What possible reason would you have to say such a thing? Maybe these people are aware they're not good communicators so they come to the one place where these ideas could gain some traction based on their merit instead of their ability to attract via sex-sells types of trickery.

That's exactly what I do. I refuse to stoop to typical marketing techniques to get my ideas more attention. I simply hope to entice enough people to consider them in order to find one champion to help promote by their sheer popularity of the group. So far, it has been completely unfruitful and I've definitely been considering making some more waves to get said attention. The problem is that every idea I have on that comes off either whiney (like this topic) or arrogant or it still gets ignored.

How exactly do you propose the unpopular people with the good ideas get them considered?

Are you saying Ron Paul uses "typical marketing techniques"?

He's a great communicator and is able to spread ideas about liberty. I suggest they learn to emulate someone in the liberty movement that is effective. They after all were complaining that no one was listening.

Maybe you aught to understand the argument before you jump in. Unless of course you ARE saying Paul is basically a car salesman and emulating him should be avoided.

Whatever

geez

The Fight for Liberty Against Tyranny is not a (short) trip..but

a JOURNEY (as I always say)...

So, STOP your "goodbye" DRAMA whining...

Hang on for the RIDE!!!

ytc's picture

. . . or just get in the habit of saying goodbye and

goodnight every night. If, and only if, we are lucky enough to wake up the next morning with Liberty Glow, we can come back here to read, learn, moan and have great fun :-)

Ban them ! Tar & feather them ! Put them in the

time out corner !

They are 'socio-paths', maybe even dangerous psychopaths. They could somehow reach out from our computer screens in a rage and slash us to pieces !

On the other hand, you could just ignore reading posts that make you uncomfortable.

At least...

we don't look like Alex Jones.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Not an excuse

Just because you don't look batshit insane to normal people, doesn't mean you don't look weird.

If the mods are to ban those with "Bye gaiz!" posts, then they should also ban those that keep on bashing people because they do not support Jones

Pfft

I totally didn't start laughing when I read that.

Honest.
