I wonder...

What it would be like if we could have a civil discussion about religion, same sex marriage, etc? You know, the kind of intelligent debate where we may disagree without being disrespectful. Where we are able to discuss hot button issues without fear of someone waltzing in and trying to melt our brains with large doses of stupid.

  • We used to have them all the time. Sad that it's not possible without someone trolling anymore.

  • Remember, this is how it USED to work:

    OTOH, even back then, certain trolls just couldn't stand watching interfaith conversations go on without them screwing it up by showing their ass:

  • Yeah, I miss those days... seems like we have periods of calm where we can have decent discussions, followed by stormy times of unbearable trollishness. In the beginning the trolls are entertaining and fun to play with, but after awhile they wear on you. *sigh*

  • Read through that second one - it's almost unbelievable that after FOUR years, it's the same troll spouting the same ignorant garbage, making the same irrational demands. It's as if she's incapable of learning from her mistakes.

  • Until CM starts cracking down on trolls, it probably won't happen. It's a nice dream though.
