Please note that I only agreed with Tyler "in a way" & then *specified* in what way...The way I *did* specifiy is a good, logical way that would
increase the quality of posts.
I hope, Proud American, that you don't consider my own definition of "raving lunatic posters" to include you simply for being a newer member. I
don't recall seeing any of your posts getting irrelevant (The one exception to "irrelevancy" would be in the Chit Chat forum, where irrevelancy is
not only tolerated, but seems to be the norm...Because that's the purpose of the topic itself
). However, the "oldies" here have seen much, much
worse than Tyler with their "troll-like" attitudes, as William One Sac indicates.
However, personally I can take Tyler with a grain of salt...Conspiracy theory & research tends to be a subject that breeds cynicism & perhaps even
some bitterness in people...I *do* take that into account. Granted, I've shown those traits occasionally myself in my posts, even though I try my
best to either keep it toned down or try to add a touch of sarcasm to it.
Compared to *some* posters I've seen, Tyler has toned down that attitude quite a bit since he got back from being banned before...Tyler's been back
from his "timeout" even before the "Take Back ATS Campaign" started & I for one am glad that he decided to come back. Attitude aside, he comes up
with quite a bit that keeps me thinking & questioning some commonly-held perceptions. Tyler doesn't flame people at random as if it were a
hobby...Those people are normally referred to as "Net Trolls" & are the type to get banned quite quickly.
