3. I admit to being a culprit in going after Kerry detractors, but
I never resort to vitriol in the general forums. I made a mistake of posting links to someone's previous comments against the rules. Now I know.

You know if we just ignored all the crap posted in the other forums about Kerry, this place to an unsuspecting visitor would look like the SBVT/wingnut residence. What's the point? I don't want GD to become off limits to me, and it would if the environment, including the positive threads, became polluted with JK lies. They are very adamant out there. I try to avoid the blatantly obvious threads designed purely for Kerry bashing. I will continue to defend him in the positive threads that are infiltrated by attackers.

In the most recent thread I posted to I have concerns: How does someone enter the JK forum and perceive that he/she is being personally attacked in a post that wasn't designed as an attack? The post was a response to an attack and was designed to facilitate a discussion. So,why would that person then bring up the JK forum in GD-P by insinuating that Kerry supporters are in the practice here of attacking others? That's false and the JK forum is not a topic for general discussion.

Now, I see the point about vitriol, and in some instances it's best to just cut the discussion. I'm definitely guilty of not adhering to the latter. It's a frustrating thing.

I realize this is a defensive statement, but I welcome your thought (critical are otherwise). Thanks for the alert TayTay.
