    I believe trolls are those who post controversial nonsense just to get reactions. How do distinguish the insincere rabble rousers from the genuine ignoramuses who sincerely believe what the post?

  2. by Donna on July 26, 2023 12:25 pm

    How do you distinguish? I don't. Neither are interested in rational discourse.

    Referring to the trolls, Donna said:"Neither are interested in rational discourse."

    Exactly! I've been spending less and less time here but I admit to getting sucked into arguing with them from time to time...But now I know that my time is utterly wasted...But still, hope springs eternal or at least I used to think so. Every so often, against my better judgment, I'll try to engage them in rational and reasonable discourse even though I know how it's going to end.

    It's a shame, but I guess it is what it is.

    On the other hand, there isnít much point in discussing politics with people who already have the same political views as you. For example, my own views on guns have moved a bit closer to the NRA stance, not to say I donít disagree with most of their positions.

    Itís good to have your politics challenged occasionally, just to be sure the facts are on your side. I am visiting in-laws now. My conservative brother-in-law said something I knew was wrong because I looked up the relevant stats during a discussion here.

    That's different, Curt. You were obviously having rational conversations with those people.

    I am going to break in here. IF I can actually converse, I am more thoughtful of that person. And yes, I'm sucked in by a troll (I've been trying to cleanse myself of that thing). So there is that, and I'm trying to break that.

    Sorry. Donna, I respect you. we rarely agree (although sometimes we do and that's welcomed).

    I have said often that curt and I used to agree with much, but that's not true lately.

    I don't think I've changed much, but if someone is as engaged to a singular position, that's an Issue.

    I personally, am engaged to a singular position of the law. My following is that of the constitution.

    I lean decidedly Right, and when people are wrong, they are wrong. When they are correct by the law, I hope I can point that out and support them. I hope that decision is by the law only. NOT of my political views. That is really hard, I'll admit. What you "want" to be true is not always as it is.
