It is an attempt at intimidating people with whom you don't agree.
"You better either praise the man or keep your mouth shut or we're going to sew a big red "R" on your shirt!"
It is so intellectually pathetic it makes we want to slap the people who do it.
Do you think there are those at A2K that do this to me, Finn, considering the things I raise many don't agree with? Do you feel any great desire to slap any of that crowd?
Do you partake in these attempt[s] at intimidating people with whom you don't agree
Not having made a study of the response to your posts, I don't think I can answer your first question. It's probably the case but I certainly can't cite any instance or repeat offender.
I very often have a desire to slap some of the people who express disagreement with you but not because of their disagreement with you.
I'm sure that I have tried to intimidate people who disagree with me but through force of rhetoric rather than labeling them "traitors" (the right-wing version of "racist"...although in this day and age being a "racist" seems to generally be considered a worse crime than being a "traitor.")
What's this JTT?
You seem to be feeling a little sorry for yourself here.
You can't go about calling people liars, cowards and scum and then feel you aren't being treated fairly by those very same people.
Besides, you don't need me to slap them, you have Reasoning Logic.
