Hide Rating - My New Rule
by GFORD, Sat Mar 22, 2008 at 08:37:52 AM EDT
When a commenter makes horrible remarks about Senator Obama, is that person a fervent supporter of Senator Clinton or a rightwing troll trying to make the Democratic frontrunner look bad? Or a freeper troll just stirring up trouble? How is a true Democrat supposed to tell the difference?
I want to HR only the trolls but don't want to HR Democrats who simply have a difference of opinion with me. Hence my new rule below the fold.
New Rule re Hide Rate:
If a commenter says something offensive about Senator Obama and then says something like 'Hahaha, Republicans will win in November' I consider that commenter a troll. Anybody who is happy to see the Republicans win is not a Democrat.
I'd like to see commenters who claim to be Hillary supporters, give honest comparisons between Hillary and Obama. I would especially like these commenters to say positive things about Hillary more often than negative comments about Obama. If they are so high on Hillary as their nominee of choice, they should be anxious to tell everyone about her wonderful qualities. While they may have something negative to say about Obama, it shouldn't be all they have to say or I will once again assume they are just bashing the Democratic frontrunner.
What about Obama supporters vs. trolls? The trolls are not targeting Hillary at the moment since she is not the frontrunner so it's not an issue although it has been in the past.
Take it for what it's worth, it's only my opinion.
