Many folks criticize The Christian Left by saying we ban people who disagree with us. The people who have been banned are of course the worst. They run to other pages and cry about being banned; They criticize us in comment streams on independent articles, and 99% have one big thing in common: They lie about not knowing what they did to get banned or they severely minimize what they said to get banned, usually completely re-wording what they actually said. We've seen it 10,000 times over the last three years.
Case in point. We posted this meme yesterday:
Here we go with one of the threads in the discussion. It always starts out innocent.
Here we go. It almost always degenerates to this: Name calling, generalizations, swearing, curse words, lectures, on and on.
Sheena has now descended in to a vicious cycle that never ends called trolling. In the early days of the page one troll thread would spiral on an on and take up an entire day. It would take over the page for hours at a time.
Folks, we don't ban people for disagreeing with us. People disagree with us all day long. We ban trolls. There's a BIG difference. If you disagree, fine. Do so with common courtesy. 90% of the people who participate on this page get it and have no problem with it.
We don't have time for trolling. This is our policy. It will not change.
