Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Won't bother you all with questions anymore

So some DU users flipped cause I posted a ring wing email my Dad sent. I seen some said I had a low post count and I'm a troll. Apparently you didn't read my introduction post. I'm a long time DU reader, since 2004 election. I'm an active duty Army SGT. I'm an Obama supporter. I read Daily Kos, TPM, Think Progress, etc. I also subscribed to a dozen liberal Facebook pages. I listen to Left and POTUS on Sirius radio. I listen to Rush as well cause it's hilarious to see how delusional some people are. My Dad sends out idiotic emails like that once or twice a week and I have referred him to Snopes several times. I won't bother DU with questions anymore since some people apparently have a heart attack about answering questions.

1. Don't sweat it...

the same people seem to have a heart attack because people disagree with them or agree with them or +1 them. I'm not sure they even need a reason.

with the comment,... so and so wants to know.

sheeeit, i have working on 80k and a couple weeks ago i ask for clarification to something and was accused of being a concerned troll.

there is a reason people would wonder about the first three OPs of yours.

take nothing personal. get used to du. and you will be ok. maybe. lol. and that is for us long timers, also.

4. Do you have a link to that post?

Also, you need to repost in Meta Forum, this probably will be locked by the host.

7. the thing is

many people join and under the guise of "help me debunk this" post RW garbage that an easy google search would show it has been debunked, debunked again and debunked again. Your low post count is not an indicator that, that was your intention, but it fits a well known pattern.

That is why When debunking something always start with the first lie, usually in the first few sentences. Then tell the sender, when it starts as a lie, everything from there on is a lie. Why would you send me stuff you know are outright lies? If you keep doing so I am going to have take the position that you are a liar, for perpetuating known lies.

If that doesn't work, I debunk the next email and send it to all the people he copied it to. usually with a comment on how some people love to be lied to.

If that doesn't work block him and let him know why.

and welcome to DU

8. don't worry about it and please keep posting

All those Conservative paid medias like newsmax (the worse crazy stuff) send out sometimes 15 emails a day. I don't know how they get away with that kind of spam but they do.

If you can show your Dad how to click on the bottom and un subscribe he will get less emails. Better yet have him abandon his current email address and start a new fresh email. never give them your email address.

I've taken a email address and signed up just for a couple like newsmax, to see what would happen. It went to over 200 emails a day within a month.

My family has several in the military, some Navy and plenty who served in the Army. Thank you for serving and be safe!
