Who are you talking about?

Are you talking about posters here on DP? If that is the case, I believe that the majority of the posts are judged on the merits of the individual posts, rather than on the person posting. Thus, most DP posts are judged based on the present actions of the poster. In this case, I agree with you, even though I do not think it is an issue.

However, if you are talking about public figures, like Glenn Beck, I disagree. Public figures need to be held accountable for promoting tyranny. There is room for forgiveness if someone is moving in the right direction, but it should not come easy. Redemption must be earned. One good deed does not wipe out ten bad deeds. It should be the other way around.
