Don't reward the shit stirrers

There are shit stirrers in both camps or possibly they are shit stirrers from the other party.

They are not helping your candidate.
They are not helping the other candidate.
They are not helping democrats.
They are not helping liberals.
They are not helping the USA.

Its tempting to tit for tat
Its tempting to escalate

Resist the urge

4. I won't reward those, but I think that I have

a right to defend my candidate against bad slurs.

This is still a primary, and a lot of attacks are
being mounted.

Besides a lot of those stirrers want to end the
primaries right now, and I disagree.

5. I understand the urge

One of the reason people drop out from politics is because they hate the shit flinging.
We all need every possible voters engaged in order to fix the mess.

9. Skinner has already weighed in.

The grudge match people who were all excited thinking that NY would mean they could tromp back into GDP victorious- like Caesar crossing the Rubicon- with a list and start pointing "okay now ban that one, and that one, and that one" Have been answered.

The primaries are still going on.

I suspect i know how this movie ends, but I see no value in fast forwarding it.

11. The instant something reeks - newbie, loyalty oath, whatever - Full Ignore.

 

No exceptions. No, I am not missing honest debate, I am skipping over bullshit.

13. The SS's on both sides make DU fun.

 

A discussion board is about debate, right? If would be no fun if we all agreed.

14. When the shit stirrers run around chasing you and alert stalking all of your posts,

it's the OPPOSITE of debate.

16. How do you "ignore" people who follow you around and alert on your posts?

You don't have a "choice" when you're being stalked by people with grudges.

17. Ignore all the people who you may think are alerting

 

I'm sure you can figure out a lot of them. Choices.

18. That doesn't stop them from alerting. Apparently you don't understand how it works.

People you are ignoring can

a. Alert on your posts

b. Serve on juries re: your posts.


Just because you can't see them, does not mean THEY can't see you.

smh.

19. No they don't

 

The reasonable debaters make DU fun. The ones who just want to create problems where none exist are just annoying.
