I don't get it man. Truly. Not "troll-y".
You yearn for civil discourse and insightful conversation in one paragraph. In the very next, you announce your displeasure for @POG's "The Right Discussion" forum being gone, which was literally a safe space for bashing the left very harshly.
I know I've been hard on you. But you have to see why certainly. One moment you're posting stuff like this...Favorite SJW/Liberal Meltdown of 2016?
...which is fine. No problems. Lambaste them and gloat if you want. But, if you do, please don't start getting upset when they do the same to you, and claim that they're the ones spitting venom.
WE are spitting venom. All of us. Collectively.
I am very guilty of it. I unapologetically accept responsibility for everything word and image I've ever posted here. But, when I tried to avoid the venom, and ask questions to YOU personally, you ignore them. Constantly. You say you want civil discourse, but you don't often SHOW that you want it.
I don't want to single you out. There are lots of times my specific questions and conversations get ignored. But of those, you're the only one who consistently is upset that the discourse doesn't exist.
Seriously man. Just truth and no disrespect. Just calling it like I see it.
