For for all the anti-war crazies here who won't shut up

Just kidding!

I'm just poking fun at the now banned loungelizard's inflammatory pro gmo and pro vaccine posts.

How intellectual.

You know, I do my best to remain unbiased on topics that I don't really have an opinion on due to lack of knowledge - things like nuclear power, vaccination, GMOs, science-related stuff.

Quite frankly, the behavior of those who oppose those things on the DP is absolutely appalling. Based on their behavior ALONE I am leaning towards those who defend them.

Consistently, in the various threads, I will see people agreeing that X is bad, but the SECOND someone comes on and says, "No, X is good and here's why," they are INSTANTLY accused of being a "paid shill" or some similar ludicrous charge. The worst motives are immediately assumed, and they are answered with insults and baseless accusations. Or, as is the case here, content-free mockery.

It is depressing. The intelligent posts citing credible sources are *vastly* outnumbered by screams of "SHILL!" if there even are any of those posts. The threads descend into a rotten pile of nonsense.

If your side is hoping to convince those of us who are undecided, you need to work on actually arguing - because right now, those defending modern techniques are being much more persuasive.

Before you accuse ME of being a shill or a troll or some such nonsense, let me re-state: I am undecided. I am not arguing with you, because I don't have the information to agree or disagree. What I AM doing is telling you that your side needs to start providing more credible information and less emotional caterwauling and insults - I and many others tend to not be convinced by that.

man = lazy

That is because most are too lazy to cite them.

Actually, I think NCforPaul

Actually, I think NCforPaul has a point. You don't win an argument by banning your opponent. That's a dangerous form of groupthink.

Though I must admit that posting only two threads in two years time is rather suspicious. So maybe he was actually a troll. But even so, we need some dissent for a forum to thrive. An echo chamber where everyone agrees with each other is not what we need.

This is very very true

for the topic of gmo this is what they are doing to farmers...

I'm not sure, but I think he got banned due to his inflammatory thread titles, which included calling people who disagree with him "crazies" and possibly the fact that only two (inflammatory titled) threads in two years made the mods confident that he was a troll.

I'm not arguing with anyone, just having fun with it.

I understood your initial

I understood your initial post (and title) and found it hilarious! I was getting annoyed seeing those loungelizard77 posts today. I suspect the lizard is back home at huffpost now.

Thanks for a good laugh!

Thank you for getting it!

And LOL @ "I suspect the lizard is back home at huffpost now"

I would expect to be banned if I posted threads with titles like those, unless they were a joke like this one. I half expected to possibly get in trouble for this joke thread.

Oh, and the "Lighten up,

Oh, and the "Lighten up, Francis" vid had me crackin' up, too!! Thanks for that. I've been quoting that for years.

Right on.

Yep, that's a long time fav here too. ;-)
