69. Attack any 'likeable' public figure and the right will use it for ammo
At first it seems ban-worthy to hatefully mock fellow Americans like Russert or Snow within a week of death.

We cannot know the pain that Republican policies have caused every person who posts here. Of course there are trolls but PERSONALLY slamming others because of hateful speech seems an insult to my sense of community as well. How outsiders see us may be important to some degree but how we see ourselves is more important, right? Flag hateful speech, but do it for community not for outsiders. Point out hateful speech is inappropriate if you must respond while awaiting a moderator.

Thank you, Skinner, for doing what you can to keep this a civil community and make it more than just a place to vent.
