fair warning

I am now and forevermore going to be deleting comments by mikeb302000 because all he ever does is come here and try to stir up arguments. This is not a person who wants a real debate, or who can be swayed to a more 2A-friendly mindset. He's a troll, despite all attempts to appear otherwise. He knows nothing about guns except he that he hates them, and us. He's also been using my blog to link to his own posts in the comment section, seeking blog hits and attention and I simply won't allow that.

Anonymous comments will be closed down until further notice as well.

Well done. mikeb is completely impervious to facts and logic, and understands personal liberty as much as a cockroach understands calculus.

Arguing with his like is a waste of our precious time, and beneath you, to boot.

Earl said...

Just thinking, he probably doesn't get much respect in the school yard either, the kind of guy no body would even food fight.




wv outsw out swiftly?

Bye Troll!

I'm in sort of agreement.

Yes, popular opinion is that MikeB is a douchenozzle who is not impressed by facts or reason.

Then again, I was always told ..... Don't feed the trolls!

There is a certain type of person who seems intent on screwing up life for the rest of the world. Must be genetic but I'm unsure if they are the norm or not...

Amen,

The owner of a blog is like the editor of a newspaper. Albeit, we can allow comments to be published before approval or delete after the fact. Our generosity is not endless and to abuse it should earn our ire. Good for you Breda

It is ashame that one person can bring havic. I guess he did not have a good childhood and I guess he don't know how to play well with others. He is "visiting" anothers "house" and he should be a humble guest. You has the host does have the honor of telling him to go get f*ck and not come back. I hope he moves on.

I seem to recall him being told several times that if he doesn't like what he reads here, then don't read here. And unfortunately, even if you don't feed them some trolls won't go away. Too bad you had to block anonymous posters, but if that's the only way to dispose of someone like Mike, well . . . ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Here here!

I think I've done all I can to expose him for the lying criminal bigot that he is.

I'm content now to let him rot.

Y'know, I want to say something about how we need to show that we're not afraid of discussion, that we need to show vividly the difference between us and the comment-banning antis, that we can bring the light of day into the discussion and how that our side is the rational one...

But you're right. For all his careful conversation-encouraging tone of voice, he never, ever changes anything about his position. Nothing he believes is ever wrong, or even incomplete. Damning evidence is "interesting" or "something he needs to think about", and then never mentioned again.

No amount of evidence will ever convince him that his assumptions about guns leading to crime is incorrect; we could ban all guns, have the crime rate quadruple, and he'd say "clearly, it would've gotten even worse if we _hadn't_ banned guns". We could put a .380 Kel-Tec in the hands of every man, woman, and child in the US, see violent crime plummet to almost nothing, and he'd say "the four remaining murders committed each year are clearly the result of easy access to guns; you're all partially responsible for those four deaths because you resist common-sense restrictions".

Discussion with him is an utter waste of time, and a frustration few of need.

I probably won't delete his comments, but I am done engaging him.
