Let me try to bring a bit of clarity to what is being deleted....
Any agenda-driven posting that is off-topic and redundant will get the heave-ho. Setting up a thread and debating this position is not trolling, but bleeding this topic into the majority of one's posts in an off-topic effort is agenda-driven trolling.
Perhaps hd doesn't think he is trolling. He may think he is sharing something important. Anyone can start an Enron conspiracy thread or a NcNair thread if one likes. People, you can pick his position apart if you think you can but as long as it is presented properly it will not be removed. Off-topic serial ranting will be deleted once you establish an agenda however.
In the No Spin Zone we stopped deleting partisan insults because it was too large a task with hundreds of insults. What happens now is that you won't lose a sentence or two, you lose the entire effort when you make a partisan insult. We will use the same methods in the other forums because if you want your voice heard you need to play by the rules. Lose enough posts and you show that you are not respectful of your community. If you can't respect your community, you cannot post here.
We don't moderate negative posting but we will delete ongoing, agenda-driven efforts that are designed to provoke a negative reaction if you let it bleed into your majority offerings in an off-topic manner. The name-calling needs to end though, I will delete that, but in the future that will get your entire post removed.
