Let me point out that with that linked to one of my posts... I do not appreciate your implying that I think there is a right wing conservative problem
on this site.
If you look at the thread I was replying to you would know that that OP was concerned about the increased insults and childish behavior from both

I NEVER indicated that it was right wing conservatives that were behind it all.... If you think I do, you are wrong and have misunderstood that
I have said numerous times that I think ANYBODY who behaves childishly and shouts down other people , regardless of political affiliation is in the
It is NEVER acceptable on this website, to resort to name calling, insults, trolling and political baiting.... No matter where you stand on any issue
it is NOT acceptable.
The new rules implemented go for not just republicans and they go for not just democrats. they go for EVERYBODY.
ATS is a place that encourages intelligent debate that involves civility and decorum. We do not want our members to fear posting here... These rules

With all due respect I will appreciate it if you never take one of my posts out of context and accuse me of some kind of unwarranted bias again.
Now, with all do respect, there is no attempt to silence anybody. The only thing being attempted here, is to encourage people to act like adults and
discuss the issues on this site with out resorting to childish behavior.
Is it really to much to expect that our members remain curteous and civil with one another? I sure hope not.
