Just viewing the front page I've noticed that the view to post ratio on threads is roughly 10 to 1. I've noticed this several times before. Never thought it was interesting enough to post but it seems like every time I take a look at it that's roughly what it is.

Don't talk unless you have something useful to say or have a opinion.

Useless posts contribute to slow searches. That's right. can't search too slow, too much data to wade thru.

That is because most of DUHbya's hardcore supporters are now STFU until they figure out exactly how badly he's botched Iraq and his second term.

you seriously need to find a hobby, and I really don't mean that as an anti dem remark. You are on this website all the freaking time and all you do is argue with people on the Chiefs Planet, about the President and his administration. If you are as smart and informed as you say you are, you should put that knowledge to actual good use and go lobby, protest, home school your kids, cook a fuggin pot pie, something, anything - just get the hell out of here for a few days...geesh!

Many of us have simply gotten wise to the futility of arguing with those who wake up every day with an agenda of socialism and surrender to our enemies.

There used to be some worthwhile info/current events type stuff on this forum. Now it has been turned into the jIZ/terroristmeme board of DNC talking points and propaganda. I've made a conscious effort not to post because I'm not going to waste anymore time out of my limited lifespan with you.

Utter bull shit.

You were one of the most vocal ones when you thought the US was kicking ass and taking names later. You were not in any mood to hear any type of questioning, dissent, or disagreement over the policies. Now, that the situation has changed and MANY people are question both the policies AND the implementation of them you and others like you are suddenly really quiet. Lurking...:hmmm:

This wasn't meant to be a political observation. It was a simple observation based on several observations over a long period of time. I just found it interesting that the ratio seemed to be fairly consistently about 10 to 1 over that time.

I was motivated only by how uncanny it seems to me.

I hate to give your dumbassery what you want, which is a response but here goes...

You'd be funny if you weren't so absolutely absurd. Most vocal ones? Check my profile, I post less than 2 times/day. I have under 1000 posts on this board. Many of those weren't even in the DC forum, where you choose to spend all your time.

I find it hysterical that calling you out for your terrorist sympathizing and Marxism is equivalent to being "not in any mood to hear dissent." But don't you worry, when we get the job done over there, I'll not be over here spending more than 2 posts/day arguing with you and your bullshit rationalizations and propaganda. Write it down, take a picture, whatever you want to do.

Name calling, the mantra of the lib's. BTW, you don't have the authority to offer me any option, I will either choose to or not. Nice try at the "I'm a veteran of this place and you're stupid because you're a newbie" bit. Being this is a free society, something people like you like to hide behind, I will choose not to ignore you but call out your BS whenever I feel it is called for. If you don't like it, perhaps you should IGNORE my posts.

Lady, I may be new here on the Chiefs Planet, but I have been quite active in my communities as far back as I can remember. Doing more than sitting here online griping about the President. I have lived in 9 cities, 5 states and have voted in every single election, Federal, state, county, etc. Participate in fund raising efforts, actually started my own fund raising efforts for different candidates throughout the years, march for things I believe in, and probably donate more money to charities than you ever will.

My point?

My point is, you need to actually participate in our society or your words mean nothing, not even to your own people. Sitting here and wasting space on Chiefs Planet doesn't help your cause at all. Now, why don't you go back to watching Oprah.

This pretty much sums it up. My time on the entire board has gone way down the past several months, but especially so here. I still enjoy :banghead: from time to time so I'll stop in and get my fix, but otherwise it just is not worth it. Hell, early on I tried to lighten the mood here with my joke thread, afraid of what nothing but politics would do to this place, and while people would enjoy and even participate while it was going, it would all stop if I wasn't keeping it going.

The people who live on this side of the board are here for one reason and one reason only, and it ain't to have a good time. And as stated, there is one person at the heart of it all. Funny how Henry got banned for living on this side of the board, but this person doesn't.....

I'm thinking it may be time to bring the "Ban TerroristMe" topic back up. I used to enjoy coming over and having political talk with some of the other reasonable folks on the board but it seems they've all abandoned this side. Any time you start any serious discussion it comes to a screetching halt the minute terroristme shows up and starts in with the "Bush sucks and you can't defent it! :p " mantra.

I think one of the things that really makes me want to run like hell from her is the fact that she derives pleasure from things she claims to hate. Between that and the fact that I could write a piece of software to do what she does means that she is officially irrelevant.

Now, if it was just her mouthing off and everyone ignored it that would be one thing, but at this point she's driving quality posters away from the board. That cannot be tolerated.

I've always voted to let her stay in the past, but this time around I'm changing.

She's a junky man. Sure, we're giving her one last major fix but it'll be her last.

More importantly, she's patient enough to wait around for months for a noob to come along and play. I could care less if SHE derives attention and pleasure from a banning. I'm only concerned with the health of the board.

I could care less about what she has to say, I only care about the effect it has on rational discussion. The moment she shows up all thinking goes out the window and she posts turd after turd until everyone else gives up, then she declares victory for herself, which she then uses as "ammo" in other threads. She's a parasite and needs to be destroyed accordingly so that mature, intelligent discussion can once again grow in this forum.

I seem to recall Ringleader posting more on the other side as football season got under way last year, I'd be willing to give him a shot before pulling the plug on him. Besides, when he does post on that side he doesn't intentionally stir up shit like Denise does.

You ever see a Chiefs' thread with her participating it? If not, I reccomend doing a search on Nachogate from last year. That is my biggest problem with her, she is a troll. All she does is stir up shit for her own gratification. We have banned lesser trolls for lesser transgressions than she has gotten away with over the past few years. It is redamndiculous.

Second the motion? ROFL Buddy I've been pushing the motion since before you found your way to this magnificent board.

If you are looking for someone to agree this is a good idea before going ahead with it, you already me locked up. ;)

But wait before you post it, I want this done correctly.......

Heh....this ought to be good. BRB

* headed for popcorn and a beverage.....is it too early for an adult beverage, Rob asks himself? :hmmm:

Never.

Any other response would be heresy.

If I might add something. IMO I think this should be a public poll that way we know who voted for and against.

I have no qualms with that. I've already stated I do not want anyone using multiple accounts to try and sway this thing. A public poll would help in that matter.

Monday works for me although I'm not sure we wouldn't be better off over the weekend. The slower news cycle may keep the crazies away. Come Monday they'll have 48 hours of bad news to come post.

We can always ask a mod to sticky it so that it doesn't get pushed down by other topics.

I'm not as worried about that as I am the fact that the crazies will be here. The kind of person that would stick up for her tends to not show up on the weekend.

Everyone deserves a chance to vote. As I said, I want this done cleanly. No multiple votes, no trying to arrange the time of the poll around our strongest voting block, nothing even remotely tricky. I want her gone, but I want it done fairly.

I would think that most people who would do that, would only do it once....and they would have learned their lesson....er, eh....I'm told. :redface:

One would hope, but I do not want to take any chances. I want it put in the thread starter that this is not to happen.

I wan't NO claims of a false victory. I hear too much of that about 2000 election from those people as it is.

Someone of independent mind should administer this process/poll.

I nominate Rain man if he is willing.

In that case we should make it run for four days plus and we should probably start it tonight so that the weekend crew gets a voice.

Well I thought you planned to start it tonight, that is why I was talking about letting it go through Monday. Whatever, work the rest of it out and I'll be along to vote when I can.
