    It's a good idea. It's unusual to get constructive criticism around here. Hope it leads to something!

    The easier solution is placing the largest offenders of repetitive Trump haters on ignore. Personally I have a bet on which one strokes out first, so no way will I ignore them.

    Does the phrase 'sauce for the goose...' ring a bell? Or perhaps pots and kettles calling one another black?

    All these years of the USMB haters dissing Obama for even waking up in the morning was tiresome. Now we have a reality TV star, a huckster buffoon waiting in the wings. A massive ego with a Twitter account begs to be shot down as he cuts his way through America with the subtlety of a weed whacker. He needs,,nay BEGS to be hammered daily until the bumpkins who believed in his message of fear get the message. No mandate, tepid support and a quick four years and out!

    Got the message. The problem really is that we don't judge content. If someone wants to discuss their opinion, or ask questions for discussion, and the thread is started by the rules -- we'll protect it and keep it open and clean. We are also not literary critics. So style, punctuation, even logic or reason is not a requirement ... :lmao:

    What CAN be done is for folks to REPORT duplications. It's annoying for everyone. And it screws up conversations when you're fighting about the same stupid news in 3 different threads.

    What appears to you to be useless --- usually has links to the NYTimes or Slate or some other partisan source that VALIDATES it's importance. If it's actually news -- it's not garbage.


    -------------------------- Or IS IT???? :muahaha:

    I'm fine with folks expressing hate for Donald Trump. It's just so out of control. The numerous same-themed 'I Hate Trump' posts just need to be moved or merged into a couple posts. Right now, it's the same 2 or 3 posters flooding the forums with repetitive insanity. It's especially the case in the Politics Forum. There needs to be some limits established. Some kind of limit on the number of thread-starter posts per poster.

    I mean go to the Politics Forum right now. You'll quickly see that it's the same 2 or 3 posters just flooding the forum with 'I hate Donald Trump' thread-starter posts. It's out of hand. I hope USMB recognizes it and addresses it. I really do like the site. But it's getting to be so boring and annoying watching the same couple of posters flooding away.

    If it really were an "I hate Trump" stream of threads, you could consolidate them. Only that's not the case.

    For instance.

    1. There is the matter of Trump's massive debt.

    2. Then there is Trump's illegal, uncertified and unlicensed Foundation.

    3. Then you have Trump's odd and un American admiration of despot Vladimir Putin.

    4. Then you have all the racist things he said such as "Mrs. Housekeeping" and "some Mexicans don't rape and another dozen just related to Mexicans.

    5. Then you have all his comments about women.

    6. Then there are the scary comments about nuclear weapons.

    7. The war with the intelligence community.

    8. And then he said he likes American soldiers that weren't captured and how he had to be shamed into paying money to veterans he promised.

    9. Then all the unvetted billionaires he's nominating.

    10. And the Nepotism.

    See what I mean? You can't fit it all into one thread. Each one of these is it's own scandal. Normally, a person would be involved in only one of these at a time. Trump has another couple of dozen I haven't even mentioned.

    So stop whining. It is what it is.

    I've been here since August 2009. You've been here four weeks. You should have seen the deluge of Obama hatred threads during my tenure. The President of the United States has been attacked on this site for governing, not governing, golfing, using the powers vested in his office by the constitution, not using his constitutional powers, being a secret Muslim, being an overt Muslim, being both a Communist and a Fascist simultaneously, being a Black man, being a homosexual, being a lousy father, being a lousy husband, being a Hawaiian, a Chicagoan, a Kenyan. In short, for being other than an old White man, the traditional type casting Conservatives have become accustomed to.

    If all those reasons and more apparently worked,for,the site, watch what happens when the huckster buffoon lets loose his Twitter account on the mundane, the banal and the low brow.

    The difference here is that Trump's scandals are real. They are all on videotape. There is the criminal investigation into Trump's illegal foundation and all that debt and so on. It's all real. All in court document or directly from Trump live. We aren't making any of it up. Trump is providing all the material himself.
