Its out of control. Anti-environmentalists treat it like their personal fun house. Someone opens a serious, sourced thread and its trolled from the get-go.

Heres just one example: NASA predicts Megadroughts US Message Board - Political Discussion Forum

I pretty much stopped posting down there a couple months ago because there was no apparent modding there and anti-environmentalists had made a joke of the place. Attempted to return recently but it hasn't changed.

Why would any adult want to spend time crafting a serious thread only to have some kid (figuratively) jump in w/ a 1-2 sentence, ad hom laced, hack post?

See how the AGWCult needs to silence all dissent? That's not science, science welcomes vigorous debate, skepticism and testing. AGWCult only wants to hear from other people who are paid to agree with their stupid "theory"

Thread needed trolling. On behalf of people who approach "climate change" with logic and reason, you're welcome.
"thread" singular? :eusa_eh: Where you been? Virtually all the threads are trolled there continuously.

That's Dorothy's SOP he starts getting hammered in a thread and calls his more informed opponents trolls and stalkers.
^ ad hom's in "Announcements & feedback" :clap2:@cereal_killer . Pathetically, it IS his M.O. since his threads never seem to go anywhere :(

I would just like the Admin, Coyote AVG-JOE theDoctorisIn to take a look at it and decide if they want to keep it what it is essentially now- a running anti-environmentalist joke that fewer & fewer people will post in due to the rampant anti-environment, grade school-level, trolling

And disagreement is not necessarily trolling. Attempting to silence dissent is cowardly.

The Conspiracy folder is where most of it belongs, given that the standard right-wing-fruitloop-denier response to any actual data is hysterical crying about how all of the data across the entire planet has been faked by the VastSecretGlobalSocialistConspiracy. See Frank's posts here as examples; he literally floods every thread with that kind of content-free hysterical nonsense, as do several others. The denier conspiracy is every bit as stupid and crazy as birtherism or 9/11 trutherism or antivaxxism or JFK conspiracy theories, and it saturates the Environment folder.

^^^ This.

It's the worst of the worst to even attempt to have a thread about any environmental issue ... the same people derail it over and over. It's a way to "win" the argument -- they know that science is against them, good thing they can derail the thread.

This site has become overrun with trolls and sock-puppets. Once they learned that they could get away with that kind of bad behavior with nothing save for a slap on the wrist, they have taken full advantage.

Post idiocy, expect to get ad homs, trolling and one liners.
What gives you-almighty the right to derail a thread with fat chick memes, just because you disagree with its premise? I would think that a grown-up would actually discredit the OP, by demonstrating WHY it was wrong.
