Recently I expressed a dislike of a politician and was instantly put down and accused of being a serial troll by a member, rather than offering an intellectual reasoning as to convince me why this person should be respected.
After an offer of proving to the post to back up their accusation they soon vanished.
Its becoming common here to put down those who offer a different opinion to others, rather than being in the privileged position to share knowledge and information they believe they posses.
Sometimes this site reminds me of a Dr Seuss story, but this site is what it is, it has its fair share of trolls, time wasters and antagonists, but those of us who are serious about this site know there are those employed by agency's whose job it is to deliberately mock, humiliate and discredit seekers of the truth...you stand out like a sore thumb.
Its a funny old life, but the truth is out there....just a little more respect for fellow members wouldn't go amiss....rant over.
