HELP PLEASE! Most RWN's are nuts and I can see why they supported Romney. I post

on a forum I've been on since Hillary was running. It started as the Hillary Clinton forum and was infested by right wingers over time. Now they are more vocal and more in abundance than the dems and/or Obama supporters are. They are typically hateful, clueless and can't debate their way out of a paper bag. I almost always post with links and quotes to articles to back up why I have a certain opinion. They almost always post with republican talking points and garbage.

Anyway things have flared up over there by the cry babies who supported Romney and they are resorting to personal attacks (against forum rules but they ignore it) and accusing some of us of spamming the forum, rubbing in the fact that Romney lost, etc.) I haven't posted any gotcha posts or posts rubbing things in. One the topics is the election and some have posted since the election why Romney lost and analysis of that. I used to post polls, esp. Nate Silver and they got all over me for that because they couldn't face reality.

Anyway, after a few diatribes directed at me by some of these "trolls", one of them chimed in and said I couldn't talk about Romney anymore because he is now a private citizen and other totally nonsense stuff.

So, I've been posting a few things here and there about the election which involve Romney's name (like how he didn't win any votes in some districts) and when I use a quote or make a comment about Romney, where his name is mentioned I post "name hidden to protect the innocent" or "someone" and various things like that.

It is so outrageous and disgusting but I keep posting there along with a few other Obama supporters just to be stubborn and not do as they say.

I need some good comebacks that I can post over there if anyone has any.

1. Honey, if there are that many trolls, it's time to play with them.

Rip Rmoney a new asshole over there and enjoy the fallout. Don't be intimidated by it. He's earned a new asshole.

6. Yep! But the problem is that

they are trying to get me and a few others banned for not going by their rules. The admin isn't around much anymore and he's a gay liberal (why he started the forum in the first place) so they have free reign. But admin there does tend to ban the wrong people when he was around in the past because of the pile on so he figures it's easier to ban the one person than the whole gang of trolls. Go figure. Anyway, I'll hang on as long as I can without being banned.

I'd ask some of you to join and post there but without the admin around, you may not get access until he shows up which could be weeks or days.

But if anyone is interested in trying (we few Obama supporters need back up badly), this is the link.

http://www.commongroundpolitics.net (the name is a JOKE). I think it should be commonrepublicanground.net. LOL!

Thanks for the support because I'm really pissed and bummed out!

8. The inmates are running the asylum? And the admins don't care? You shouldn't either.

Say buh-bye. Idiots aren't worth taking seriously. They're just fun to bat around like a cat does with a mouse.

I did a google on the url, and the description of the site is 'Political Discussion From All Points Of View'. With a description like that, of course, it'll be overrun with righties. They take over everything (they're Republicans, after all, greedy assholes who don't know how to share) unless they're specifically banned--like at DU. So the hell with them.

I may check out Daily Kos, Think Progress, Raw Story, Crooks and Liars, but never a site with 'all points of view'. I don't even go to Huffpo anymore. Too Meghan McCainy there.

11. I know but

I've been there for over 4 years and lately it's gotten much worse AND I'm so angry and stubborn I just don't want to let them drive me away! I will probably leave over there in the not too distant future if I'm not banned first.

13. Might as well enjoy getting banned now. Sounds like they've

turned the place into a toilet. I wouldn't want to hang out at a toilet.

3. "it is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere", or "sorry, it is impossible to engage

in a battle of wits with an unarmed person" are two of my favourites.

point out that there is no law against posting even about private citizens, and that they would know this if their education had gone beyond second grade.

10. Thanks for the

great comebacks! I'm just so stubborn (and ANGRY) that I don't want to let them drive me away which is exactly what they are trying to do!

14. would it be possible to just leave it alone for a few days? I can see not wanting to be driven

away though. one of my favourites when I encounter someone like this in person is to look at that individual with a great deal of concern, and, in a very soft, anxious voice, ask "does it hurt?" "does what hurt? is the usual response, of course, to which I reply, "does it hurt to be this flaming STUPID??"

7. If you can, go

to this thread and help me out with the personal attacks on me

http://www.commongroundpolitics.net/discussion/showthread.php?t=67246

I'm surprised you could post. Are you already a member?

Edit: Hey, I remember you from years ago. I used to be another user ID name there and was a staunch Hillary supporter. Glad to see you here and thanks for the help. If you can do more, please help!
