Yeah, I only picked out the problematic ones with votes because people need to know that these are terrible options.

Any update on this? I see the original posts that started this whole thing have not been moderated or had any notation put in there that they will be moderated in the future?

Truly embarrassing that almost half of people voted for "Moderators should be quicker to ban trolls from political."

And then some of those same people actually voted for the correct answer:

"Posters should have thick skins – let people say what they want, and others can counter as they want."

How do you explain that? Safe spacers who delight in the belief that they are open minded because they tolerate opinions one step away from their own on the spectrum? Two steps away = troll or "arguing in bad faith" or racist bigot

Oddly enough, there's a difference between "people who disagree with me" and trolls. There's also a difference between "people who say things bluntly" and "trolls".

Bigb wasn't a troll, not more than many posters here, anyway.

Where is the poll option for "Mods should be quicker to ban high maintenance whiners"?

Ah yes, trying to stand up for the rights of marginalized groups, also known as whining.
