After Flagging was banned whats your thoughts? Im Pro Responsible Flagging

Since True Believer left an intelligent argument I changed my title and some of the content. Yes this is a private forum after all and manystrom has the right to enable or disable the flagging feature. I just think it is better for a free market to have flagging as an option. Maybe with adobting my suggestion of a minimum 50 flags quota we can get somewhere

So now The trolls started posting stuff to make us look like Obama socialists? We cant flag them?
Im not obsessed with flagging like some people here but sometimes it is necessary.
If theres no flagging ability this forum will end like RonPaulWarRoom
the trolls will attack day and night and I doubt Ill be happy to visit again. Just increase the flagging quota. But slicing off flagging will hurt us.
have a look at www.ronpaulwarroom.com
no flagging and no moderating
After the trolls took over most people left

By the way I HAD MANY GOOD THREADS OF MINE FLAGGED. I RESENT IT HAPPENED BUT I DONT RESENT YOUR & MY RIGHTS TO FLAG!

how can I ignore a troll thread with a title like F Ron Paul or F Paultards that is getiing a million self bumps a minute

OKAY WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE NEW TO RON PAUL. HOW WILL THEY KNOW WHICH THREADS TO IGNORE AND WHICH TO READ??????????

Let the free market decide people

My Solution? Manystrom can raise the flagging quota from 7 to 50 flags. This way only the most undesirable threads will go out the door. Who in the world will log in and out 50 times to delete 1 thread? no one

Let it be.... as for the Ron Paul White Supremacist thread, I think its good he brought that up along with immigration and why he left the revolution, though I think he's wrong in some ways, and I like the chance to respond to it.

Remember, its healthy for the movement. Otherwise, with premature flagging, the discussion gets narrow and intellectual acumen goes way down to the lowest common point of agreement..resulting in Cult-like single minded thinking.......thus the way to raise our broad collective wisdom is to have lots of intellectual discussion and decent.

proof of the necessity of flagging

A thread called "White Supremacists and Ron Paul" has been on the top 10 all day.

We can do better than this.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

So what Sam?

If a newcomer to this site,sees the title,without reading the thread,and makes their determination based on that,do we need them here?

If you would have read a little into the thread,you would see folks are doing a good job of debating that guys points. Patriotism demands debate.

We need hide and unhide

Basically, Member can vote to hide a post. If say 10 members vote to hide something, it leaves the non-members area - basically, you have to log on to see the post. If this was unfair, Members can vote to unhide the post, and make it available again to anyone.

How does flagging work

7 people flag and then does Manystrom look at it and decide to take it down? Or does it automatically fall off after 7 flags?

Is there any kind of feature

that could be used to send all of the Ron Paul naysayers and the all of the incessant support this guy people to one location where they could all talk to themselves? You know something like sending them to their room? We could still drop in to hear the Barr guys trying to sell the Nador guys or the Gravel guys listening to Obama guys. Then you could bore the complaining immigrants with the ones who are making a case with how the economy is just dandy. It could all get very entertaining instead of just annoying and everyone could still say whatever they want.

Flagging is not good for business

The more controversial a posting is, the more people are going to be on the site arguing and discussing it. This increases the advertising income to the DailyPaul.

If only mild stuff that everyone agrees with is allowed, this place would die.

Flagging certainly isn't good for your business

But that is kinda what we liked about flagging.

There should be a public record of

who flaggs, what they flag, and how many flags.

This, I think, would solve a lot of problems.

We all have our roles.

rhino i swear that exact thought was just on my mind

Great minds think alike.

yep, that would do it!

Bring 'em on.

I don't think flagging is necessary, I think we are capable of defeating bad ideas with dialog. It does make more work for us, but that is part of being in the R3volution.

well

A moderator could server as an elected official. Although someone might lobby them, ha.

"The wicked flee when no man pursueth, but the righteous are as bold as a lion."

I'm not afraid of words

So, no. No flagging.

If you literally can't ignore something, the you have a psychological problem.

You say "let the free market decide," but flagging is not letting the free market decide. Letting the free market decide is letting people talk. If they get bored of talking or the problem is solved, they stop voluntarily. You don't force them.

I agree with justcantgetitup for once

People like you challenge us to learn more about the poo you peddle. Before you came along- not many of us knew that Barr voted for the Iraq war and helped shape the Patriot Act. Before you came along many of us had no clue that his VP would be another boot-licking ne0-con that is trying to nab a position to where he can finally have HIS boot licked. Without trolls the DP would be just another love-fest. Ive never used the Google so much in my life since I had to start defending Ron Paul at his own supporter forum - and the more I research the better Ron Paul looks. Keep up the 20 mph slow-pitches and we'll keep hitting them outta the park.

I agree also!

If it wasn't for BillyDee aka Justcantgetenough >> trolling... then I wouldnt have been able to see so quickly that Bob Barr is NOT worthy of my condsideration!

Blowback is inevitable!

yeah so I guess we should start promoting Smearing and lying

about Ron Paul on this website since were not afraid. Let them lie and smear. Since most readers actually read all the responses to a lie and a smear
right?
Or since most visitors are new to Ron Paul they are just like you

If something is a lie or smear

then what's the problem? You simply correct the person.

You could be wrong that something is a lie, as well. Are you so infallible that you can't allow debate on whether something is a lie or not?

Still beating this drum?

It is not MY right to control what somebody says on someone elses forum.
You are worried that others will be turned away because of posts they may or may not agree with?
Let's be realistic here. There are 500 people visiting on here max.
420 don't even bother to join in the conversation.
What percentage is 500 out of a million plus votes?
What fraction of a percentage is 500 out of 18 million voters.
If THEY cannot be mature enough to ignore the things they don't like and participate in the things they do,then THEY don't need to be here anyway.
The OWNER of this site has spoken. He has seen the sense of allowing us to take responsibility for ourselves.
There is NO longer a campaign,unless
A) McStain dies and RP is miraculously handed the nomination.
B) RP decides to run 3rd party with Jesse Ventura
C) other
So the forum is open to freely debate and search for the truth,as the guidelines state.
If there are people that come here to start trouble, or divisiveness then they will stand out, and I'm sure be reported by others on this forum.
So just relax, enjoy and participate. Ignore the posts that are stupid and they will fall to the bottom. If the person keeps bumping their own post then they will be reported and dealt with.
Just because you and some others may "flag responsibly" doesn't mean that there aren't others organized and deleting good threads.
The flag button creates division amongst the ranks. Just mind your own front yard,and I will do the same,and we will have a nice little neighborhood.

How is flagging controling what someone says?

That's BS.
