Who should have been reported for their behavior in Goose’s thread? http://forums.hannity.com/showthread.php?t=2270571, ATTN SOC CONS: Family Values Trumped By Economy
Start with Goose himself. He made demeaning posts to Satchmopants. Two examples:
Your ignorance of history is noted.
Try reading a book sometime and get back to me.
Clearly, if you think neoconservatism of today is what conservatism has always been, your education is clearly lacking. That doesn’t make you stupid, it just make you ignorant. And that’s not an insult. Nothing wrong with that, I assume you are capable of learning.
And yes, I am arrogant. Extremely arrogant when it comes to matters of conservatism. I’ve been a student of conservatism since the early 80’s and I can guarantee you, I’m far better versed in it than most people here. That much is evident in this thread alone, not to mention my 30,000 other posts on this board.
But tell me, where have I promoted redefining marriage or infanticide?
Astonish me with your knowledge young satchmo…
Satchmo’s reply to the latter:
LOL! Could you BE any more condesending?
The 80’s. Really? Boy I guess that makes you an authority,(in your own mind).
You made an assertion about my beliefs. Are you going to back it up or continue to troll?
We’re here to discuss political strategy and issues. Feel free to join in at any time.
If Satchmo was trolling then there were two responses which would have been appropriate from Goose. If Goose was acting as a moderator then he should take action against Satchmopants for trolling. If Goose was acting as a member then he should report Satchmo in the TTTM.
Goose violated the Terms of Service at least by accusing Satchmo of trolling within that thread. Satchmo had grounds to report Goose in the TTTM. Of course it would have been futile but it would have been at least as fair as Goose reporting Trip since it is still not clear what Trip’s violation was.
Who else might have been reported if the participants were evenhanded?
