a POX on the morons who keep feeding the trolls here on TH. You're HELPING the trolls divert and clog up the discussion and comments. Does anyone here -want- to HELP Sybil? Or the other trolls? just flag them and pass them by. DON'T give them the attention they seek. STOP trying to show how much smarter you are than them. it doesn't work. (and it keeps them coming back for more) every TH regular ought to be able to recognize Ancel's newest pseudonym,flag it and pass it by,WITHOUT commenting and giving the troll the attention it so desperately seeks.

Aren't we conservatives the ones who love freedom?

I say let the trolls post their toxic nastiness and we should point out their lies. I say no lie should be left unanswered, but no POV should be censored.

But then we clog up the site as well. They're never on topic, so why argue with them and keep others from commenting on the actual artcles. Jay Wye is right.

His intention is merely to make it tiresome to follow a thread or have a real pro/con discussion. I flag sybil's spam. There are trolls i disagree with, but don't flag, because they engage in what is going on.

Attention, Wal-Mart directors: Mob appeasement never works. They've tried repeatedly to stave off union thuggery through political "partnerships" and capitulation. It has failed and failed and failed.

As you may recall, the discount retail giant shocked many observers in 2009 when it announced it was embracing the principles of President Obama's federal health care mandate. The nation's largest private (and non-union) employer was...
