I appreciate the sentiment, xnavy, but it is not just Ron Paul supporters that drag down good threads. The main problem is that some of our regular members have taken on the tone and tactics of the trolls and it's getting hard to tell the good from the bad anymore. Shrill is shrill regardless of whether I like the tune or not.
I'd be really happy if the "trolls" were just ignored and we had a few L&P threads that were polite and members were respectful of each other. It would make it easier to spot the trolls if the members were less troll-like.
I'm going to close the poll in this thread and move the thread to S,Q&TS with a redirect.
