I'd like a place to discuss libertarian issues without insulting and flaming.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Insulting and flaming are part of any public forum .  These things cannot be moderated.  If they were moderated, this forum would cease to be libertarian - it would defeat the whole purpose. 

Self-ownership means that each person is responsible for what they say (or do).

Responsibility is the key, here.

Let's not dump personal responsibility on the Moderator. He probaly has more important stuff that requires his attention.

We all know who the troll is.

Shun the a$$hole.

If this is a "say whatever you want" place, then I'd like to request that the rules of the forum, which I must follow, be taken down or revised to at least be honest about what's allowed and what's not.

I totally agree with you.

I would suggest that there be such a section of the forum which allows everybody to take part in to begin with, and then that privilege taken away by those who spam the forum.

It would be a section where more grown up behaviour would be demanded. However, the problem will always be that if one person is excluded for childish behaviour, such as for example posting stupid troll or laughing man videos, some others would act up and purposely get themselves excluded to show solidarity. I could imagine Jeff supporting the Chief's childish behaviour and then burnsred supporting Craig, then you supporting Burnsred, and so on.

I think there's no answer for childish behaviour. It's intrinsic to  pseudo-libertarians.

I wouldn't support people who insult others instead of giving an argument if the rule was that you couldn't.

But you're not immune to going downhill too. You'd have to take their beliefs seriously even if they seem childish to you. You couldn't just start the insult chain because someone believes something obviously foolish.

You'd have to address that with reason and data rather than just calling someone stupid.

You aren't supposed to post false or inaccurate things either, and the forum is for libertarians, not authoritarians trying to sell Communist Cuba as a paradise.

Time for your nap, Don_G.  You're getting a little cranky.



edit: I'm glad to hear the laughing man videos get under your skin! Smiley

You've earned every one of them with the staggeringly STUPID things you write on this forum - things like:

Quote:
... society would collapse completely when free stuff is taken away from 90% or more of the people.


Quote:
Must I remind you again that I'm the libertarian and you are one of the fakers. 


Quote:
Regulations are good for libertarians too. A rational approach to eliminate useless regulations is beyond the pseudo-libertarian's capacity to think straight.


Quote:
I think that maybe the reason why Americans can't accept universal health care is because too many black people would beneift.

Why didn't you keep your email private? One answer will do, not 5 or 6 serial posts to yourself.

Craig was careless.

This forum was also careless, and now Craig is exposed! Shocked

Ruby might be next!
