I find MT69 posts deliberately provocative.It is not the content of his views but the way in which he puts his views across.Other regular posters may have similar views but they do not insult other posters nor blanket bomb the board.

I simply hope that other Respected Active Members,Mods and Admin might register their concern and that MT69 may take notice.

This comunity thrives on different views but New Members must learn to put those views across with the knowledge that other members may/will disagree with them.

Intellegent debate is our aim.Not Mindless Insulting

Thank you for saying this.. as I was thinking it but felt uncomfortable mentioning it. His (it has to be a him) has a GIANT chip on his shoulder. I consider myself to be fairly middle of the road (socially left, economically a tad left and militarily right/center) but MT69's posts even bother me. We might attack each other on this board but it is not the FIRST thing we do. First we debate, then we disagree, then we disagree more, THEN we call each other commies or nazis... see.. there is a protocol to the arguing here
Not just immediate provocation. And when the names start flying I think that ultimately they are more in jest than anything else... I mean hell.. this is the INTERNET you are not likely to REALLY change the mind of someone in Belgium (this means you UP) if you are arguing from a completely different perspective in England (Hey Lupe_101 that is you). So in the end we call each other names more in jest than in anger.. MT on the other hand always dislikes those who are different from him/her.

What a joke! Here's some peaceful quotes from the whiner...


Are you a Medium with special powers that allow you and other right wing warmongerers to see into the future? or are you just a sad zealot eager to find an excuse for war?When you say"We all know"what do you mean?because I'm afraid I don't have your special powers.

But I know you're all desperate for the big off.So here is a little teaser for you.How did the cases get bird sh!t on them if they were in an underground bunker?I would suggest we at ATS send our own bird sh!t specialists,Freemason and MT69 down to Iraq to check out the cases and give the Bush Administration the final proof that they need to start World War 3.

And why are you not up to speed on British poiltcs?Simple,You are self centred and have nothing but selfish interests.,You are an ignoramus


Oh, you're just mad that I made fun of your ribbon.

MT69, don't mess with The Great One William. That ribbon is an honor to all people who dream of become the best, for that month.

The ribbon is an insult to military personnel. It's like some joke that you get a ribbon for posting on the internet. Somewhere there's an underlying idea that the military hands out ribbons like candy for anything.

Oh, back to the original whining with this thread. John Bull thinks it's alright for him to insult people but not the other way around.

I think that MT69 is trying to follow in the "honorable" (wink wink) tradition of Tyler and bob grodin. LOL
