If you haven't learned anything about me, let me repeat what I've often said about myself.  I never put anyone on ignore and I always add my two cents about things and rarely if ever don't respond to a post that bothers me.   I even conversed many days with a poster that was posting dreadful homophobic religious posts until he/she  eventually got banned.  

I do wish I had that skill of "ignoring a post and moving on" but that's not me, and not really the purpose of a discussion board in my opinion.

But thanks as always for your input.

 

 

Well said, Tweety.

I didn't think AN banned anyone.

That must have been years ago!

But your post is spot on.

During and especially just before the 2016 election new members posted only in the political forum. The posted pages and pages of cut and paste mostly falsehoods about Hillary. 

Mods eventually had to delete much of their postings due to TOS violations and they never posted again. I assume they were banned. Maybe they were Russian operatives. They made many grammatical and spelling errors.

Okay. I understand.

I wasn't on this site in 2016.

I discovered AN, in May of 2016, when I was seeking advice about NCLEX.

Thanks.  I'm of the opinion that if you make a post you get what you get in response and shouldn't expect people to "ignore and move on" if they don't like it.

In the old days they would sometimes make posters invisible so no one could see their posts and they would eventually leave, they would also moderate certain people meaning their posts had to get approved to get through, and they would outright ban someone.

I actually got myself banned on purpose and it was worth  it to tell off one of the conservatives here that was extremely arrogant to me just what I thought.  I think Steph that still posts here saw it.  Herring might have, but I'm not sure.  Many thought it was me just self-destructing but it was deliberate.  Still, I'm glad they let me come back after a long hiatus because as I've said I like posting my two cents.

I remember missing Tweety, but didn't know why.

I admit that I was wrong for how I acted in such anger and hope I've grown since then and won't do that again.  For the most part prior to that, I'm just like I am now.    So I'm not making any excuses.

From today's Washington Post:

'Our Country Is Full': Trump's Declaration Carries Far-Right Echoes That Go Back To The Nazi Era

Hopefully, you have heard the comments Trump made while riding the crazy train over the weekend.

And he made those in FRONT of Jews, who understand very well, the history this nation has of turning away Jewish asylum seekers.

But hey, the far right in Germany, is applauding Trump's remarks.

Gee, I wonder why?

Gotta love Mayor Pete for calling Trump out for what he truly is.

More reporting from right wing media which has a difficult time getting facts correct.  

This site, in contrast, has a reputation for reporting which enjoys a high level of accuracy and reliability.
