    Keep Discussion Civil.
    inappropriate response writes:

    At least you're predictable. Ignorant and dishonest, but predictable.(...)You lie, as always.

    Did you ever sit across from someone with a wart on their nose? In polite society, we dont bring up any perceived or obvious flaws in others. Forum Guidelines

    This is a warning.

    Re: Focus On The Book
    Im not picking on you---I realize that you get a lot of abuse. Percy seems less condescending than others...he never attacks you personally except pointing out that you dont provide evidence in the way he feels it needs to be provided. Note that I am moderating for any personal insults. I would prefer that we argue the position and not the person. Also note that I brought up the Journalism Professor that you were talking about.

    I really wish that everyone would acknowledge that the Left and the Right, though differing ideologically, are both human and that neither side has any monopoly on either evil or intelligence.

    Did you actually agree that I'm ignorant and dishonest?
    No. Note that I used the word "perceived". I may see you and others here(myself included) as occasionally ignorant, but never dishonest.
    and if we had tougher moderators, there would be no discussion forum here.

    Edited by AdminPhat, : No reason given.

    Runaway Insultfest
    I am by necessity a part-time moderator, as I usually work from 3 pm to midnight most days.

    I have read the previous replies since I was here last and see that this thread is going nowhere fast.

    As a political moderate, I feel that I am in a position to moderate a topic regarding Right vs Left political values, opinions, evidence pro and con, and the usual EvC insult fest which has become all too common around this forum these days.

    The thread is about Jeanine's Pirro's book Liars Leakers and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.

    Lets begin by focusing on that.

    I am closing this thread for one day in order to allow the author the opportunity to regroup and if she so chooses to continue with this thread.

    Faith, need I remind you what you yourself have said regarding the motive for this thread?

    quote:
    I just read Chapter One at Amazon and think she did such a good job I had to post it. I'd copy out some of it but I'd have to type it myself. Maybe I can come back later and do that. Meanwhile, I recommend reading that first chapter to anyone at all interested.
    So first of all, I insist that anyone who participates in this thread focus solely on the book and provide quotes...note that most of us have not purchased the book (including Faith) and are limited to discussing the first chapter provided on Amazon.

    I will not allow this thread to further descend into personal attacks from either side.

    Present your case based on what is written. Limit your comments to what is written. Once I reopen this thread, assuming the author even wants to continue, I will be issuing 4-hour suspensions automatically for either side deviating from discussing the book itself.

    As of 706 am Mountain time, I am closing this thread for half a day while everyone regroups.

    Re: Focus On The Book
    I might add that though jars request is reasonable, the topic is the book and what it says. There may well be no evidence in the book, apart from the opinions of the author, but this is the Book Nook and this topic is limited to the book itself.

    Re: Focus On The Book
    You might consider opening future topics like this up in the free-for-all if you simply want to rant at others. I wont take sides here---they are guilty of goading you into providing evidence, which you feel no need to do...and you have a right to rant, but not in a rational Book Nook discussion.

    Focus On This Topic
    I would prefer for the evidence to be centered on the book itself. There are always other topics for what you suggest. Within the contents of the book, (or Chapter One for most of us) anything can be reasonably discussed as long as we lay off each other.
