24. Worse than the troll posts
I figure a board like this is bound to get troll posts and I don't pay much attention to them.

What I find really absurd is the conservative blogs which use absurd posts as reason to attack liberals. They might be plants from trolls, or they might even be real. There are bound to be a handful of people who are a bit too far out in left field.

Some bloggers will take an isolated post here, or a diary on a site like Kos, and quote them as if they are representative of current mainstream liberal thought.

It's an easy way to write an attack, but not very meaningful.

I often come across really strange things on conservative blogs, and I'm sure I could find far worse if I dug through Free Republic (a misnamed site if I've ever seen one). I could play their game and enter a post making fun of it on one of the blogs where I write, but I wouldn't bother. If there is a bizarre statement from someone who is significant in the conservative movement or Republican Party I might quote it and debunk it. If it is just a lone blogger or poster, it doesn't mean much to quote a ridiculous statement.
