Banned

This morning I banned Ttigeratty from my blog.

When I logged in this morning, I noticed that he had commented on a post I made last week concerning Ann Coulter’s new book. What I found was 10 comments, in a row, all at least a screen long, attacking others who had commented and with long quotations lifted from other sources.

I deleted 9 of the comments, and told him not to do this again or I would ban him. I said he had been rude to me when I commented on his blog, called me names, and cast aspersions on both my character and sanity. I said I would not put up with such behavior on my own blog.

A couple of hours later, I discovered that he had continued to post the same type of responses, including one that quoted my warning and daring me to ban him, insinuating that I was afraid of his ideas and those of Coulter and was censoring him.

He’s gone.

As far as I can tell, he has no ideas of his own. His posts and comments are usually the same inflammatory and derogatory rhetoric, rehashed over and over. He continually posts, and includes in comments, lengthy quotations from others, and seems unable to digest these ideas and reproduce them in his own words. This type of regurgitation indicates a lack of ability for critical thought and analysis.

When I come to your blog, I try to be respectful, even if I vehemently disagree with what you or one of your guests has to say. I will sometimes attempt to engage in debate, if that is the tone of the thread, but I won’t call people names or try to hijack your post. Sometimes, my attempts at humor may be off the mark, and some might find them offensive, but that is not my intention and if such instances are pointed out to me I will apologize. Often times I’ll just leave without comment. It’s your house, your rules, and while I may try to seduce you or one of your guests, I will not shit on your carpet or pee in your potted plants. I’m not here to fight with anyone.

I would prefer to keep this a free speech zone. Conservative viewpoints are welcome, if people are willing to debate openly, defend their positions with logic and facts, and are respectful of others. Any people, independent of their political or religious viewpoints, who descend to name calling and disrespect of others’ opinions or persons will be also be treated as unwelcome. And believe me, I am capable of policing my own blog. I don’t need any help.

One other thing. Expressions of hateful, murderous, prejudiced philosophies will not be tolerated here. Free speech is one thing. Espousing the views of Adolf Hitler, Iosef Stalin, Michael Savage, David Duke, Ann Coulter, or others in the same vein will not last past my finding and deleting them. This includes any comments about rounding up all the Republicans and putting them in internment camps or murdering them.

Of course, wanting to hang all the lawyers and politicians is exempt, as always.

I was wondering where his post was. I was one of the ones targeted, and I had a reply. Personally I like it when he visits my place. But I'm just lazy, and prefer to have my ammo brought to me. And I apologize to you if I ever get out of line. Not to anyone I smack down, but to you. It's your blog, your rules. Sometimes I just reaally get pissed. Abject ignorance does that to me. But no excuse, and I'll keep TRYING to remember my manners. Uncle Joe

Well said, as two swing votes (conservative on some issues, obviously liberal on others), we find it very important to educate ourselves, listen to both sides, digest the information and come to a conclusion. Being able to respect other positions is not only decent, it's imperative to understanding any issue. Again, well said...holy shit what was that...dammit someone just threw another noose around my neck, I wish you'd call off the dogs...

I like Ann Coulter to be honest but I don't beat my beliefs to death on others blogs, TTiger I personally like and agree with most of the time but spamming your blog goes a bit far.

This is exactly why I tend to stay away from political posts they are always going to touchoff a firestorm. And no matter how hard you try to be respectful someones going to push your buttons.

As always, a very coherent and rational response. I would hate debating you as you have a talent for dissecting, analyzing and responding to arguments with intelligence, sanity (all too lacking these days), respect and logic. Although I have strong views on US politics, I generally abstain from getting into long debates because I feel as a non-American, I only have so much say. Coulter and other pundits are fair game however. If they show a complete lack of respect for anything other than their own point of view (which seems to be the case with US conservative pundits), then they should not get our respect. I call these people idea racists. Like race racists, debate is futile. They serve one purpose which is the propaganda of their ideas and agendas and to that, one cannot respond.

As for the lawyers.... out with the nooses!

It wasn't until recently that I noticed a lot of intolerence coming from Ttigeratty's direction. It was only a matter of time before someone banned him.
Personally I have nothing against someone who has a strong opinion in an emotive subject as long as they are open to the opinions of others. It is arrogant and ignorant when we are not willing to listen to opinions that do not match our own. I have to admit I did not see his comments here but some of Ttigeratty's comments that I have seen around other blogs disturbed me a little but there was no point in addressing them as he showed no genuine interest in debating the issues he raised. Rather than encourage his behaviour and risk upsettng other people I wrote a post on my own blog which didn't name names but addressed the intolerence that some people have.

Oh come on Kelli...I thought the self-appointed, or is that anointed, Chairman Ann is the savior of the religious right. SURELY there is no way she could have a biased opinion on anything. And just as positive as I am of this load of bovine excrement, I am sure any person who would come to a place like this and start in with the whole kindergarten, name-calling phase is one of those guys who actually has a shorter dick than I do and very obviously his mother didn't teach him any manners. I am only bummed I didn't get to read the posts...I love hearing from those with radical political points of view; they usually, whether from the extreme right or left, have been sold a bill of goods and don't have the good, common sense to think for themselves. I have said it before, and I will again, when you decide to take your well thought comments to the public and represent said people, look me up, I would do a whole lot to get a level headed individual who thinks on her feet and doesn't feed a line a mile long elected. Besides, anyone who offers up open season on lawyers is never bad in my book.

last year, on a friend's blog where i responded to a political post disagreeing with said friend, this same disgusting individual said the only reason i held the political views i did was that i "had not been fucked by an american" ... i feel, and maybe it is just me, that such comments are tantamount to suggesting i be forceably fucked by an american ... everytime i see his pic i feel sick! he has been given a lot of space in blogland by a lot of people, and sometimes i've felt confused that other's can't see him for what he is. he is at least a big part of why i don't engage in political commentary on other's blogs unless i have 100% ascertained that they are open to what i have to say -- not just views like mine, but me in particular.

you don't have to justify who you ban from your blog, but in this case i am glad you did tell us, cos it makes me feel a bit less like a freak for seeing him in a particular light.

I'm still waiting for him to deal with me on his blog, as promised when he hijacked a thread on sweetbabydee07's blog. All I see is him copying copyrighted material of others and then not even adding his own thoughts. Why do you think this is right? Why do you disagree with a position? Your own words, not the words of the Limbaughs, Coulters, Maklins and others of this world. Those people make George Will and Bill Buckley sound like Liberals. They espouse racism and scream about criminals and how people should be put to death for minor crimes, while they'e hiding drug habits from the public.

What he doesn't seem to get is, when you try to force your opinions down my throat, it isn't going to get me to agree with them, or like them. Just as forcing cauliflower down my throat isn't going to make me acquire a taste for it.

I have a problem with both sides when they refuse to think for themselves. When you swallow things wholesale with no rational thought given, you are just proving you'd have made a great cult member.

BTW, have you seen the Betty Bowers review of Coulter's new book? You really do have to read it.

I have never seen Tiger do anything close to that before but I suspected he might be capable of it recently when he mentioned a distaste for liberals, the fact that he considered himself a capitalist and that he was some sort of Rush Limbaugh enthusiast all in the same breath.

His upfront association with Mr. Ultra-Hypocrite-and-Closedmindedly/Selfrighteously-Ignorant Limbaugh was the biggest tip off to me of what might really be lurking beneath the surface there. I haven't really passed judgement on him now but his spammage here does fit the profile of what I had potentially begun suspecting about him.

I don't blame you for banning him as to me what he did here is really overstepping the bounds of respectful blogging behavior.

Well, hon, he copied some of it off before you deleted it all, and posted it with additional comments. Check your email. I can't believe that you are so intolerant as to not want his opinions expressed on your blog.

If the comments were half as long as the dozen posts he's made in the past two days, copying half of Coulter's book onto this site (btw, no need to buy it, just go to his blog to read it), no one would have read them anyway.

Hey Kelli. Thanks for a post that, although focused somewhat on an individual is actually driving home the need for moderation in all ideological camps. I think you know that I have "right" (as opposed to left) leanings but I also know that you and I have always gotten on famously because (in the few exchanges we've had) it's a) not been a topic for disucussion but, more importantly, you, me and many others here realize the the world doesn't work in "ologies" the world works in shades of grey and no camp has a corner on right or wrong.

Back when you posted the link to "Why Leftists Hate Bush.." thread I followed it and put of a VERY lengthy post on the subject in question and the need for moderation from all camps. Extremism breeds extremism and neither the right, the left, christians, muslims, jews or any group are free of fanatics. The sad part is, that it's the fanatics that breed apathy in politics and spirituality by engendering a feeling of disgust in most of the population.

Now, in a small gesture of defense to TTiger, I think I understand where some of the angst is coming from. Every day I see a sentiment of anti Americanism in Canada and throughout the world. I think that around the globe, many people's dislike for the current administration has created a general backlash to America as a whole. I think TTiger's initial intent was to fight that backlash (A backlash he seems to see coming from both inside and outside your country).

I think that this could be construed as noble. The unfortunate thing, is that the efforts, at least as I see them, have strayed from this original intent to defense of a personal ideology at the expense of all others.

Have a great day Kel

rm_kelli4u2dew replies on 6/14/2006 6:01 am:
There has to be room for many points of view or freedom is a myth. My problem with extremists (and the individual in question is very extreme) is that they don't allow differing views. The arrogance, the "god is on our side" attitudes of those currently in power in the U.S. have alienated the world. I take offense when someone says if I don't believe as they do that is prima facie evidence that I am anti-American, mentally unbalanced, and immoral. Coulter is so extreme that even most Republicans won't acknowledge her publicly.

The last time I "debated" with someone we listened to what each had to say and didn't criticize each other over the opinions expressed or try to force our views upon each other. If one can not be open to the views of another and be respectful there is no point in debate, it becomes an arguement.

Kelli,
I haven't blogged in a while but I had to comment on this. You know that I think that you're an intelligent, witty and incredibly beautiful woman ... probably much sweeter than you sometimes appear ... so I hope you're not offended by this post:

These politcal disscussions drive me insane ... not that I don't care ... I just think that we have it all backwards. Our political ideology is just a manifestation of what's going on in our life ... we're all fools if we buy into the fact that it's our politcal ideology ... and it's propogating those views that'll make changes in our lives, communties, countries ... the world. Life is too damned short to be wasted on that bullshit. My dad just passed away a few weeks ago and I'm reminded again that it's REAL friends, good relationships and family that are important, not how smart we are or what our religious or political views are ... I promise you that the more one immerses one's self in becoming "educated" about political issues the more he/she will see themself as "right" ... or frightenly "righteous" in their view. This is an undisputable fact ... the propogation of political ideology will continue to be the cause of every global conflict to come ... however mild or however severe.

I just hope that there will continue to be enough people in this country and the world who remain financially, intellectually and politically independent enough to counteract and balance out the effects that come from people, in and out of government, who seem bent on inflicting "Eutopia" on us all.

OK ... all that being said ... I agree that you should ban anyone who comes into your blog and who doesn't respect your rules.

I hope all is well with you ... take care.

I don't feel as though I have an ideology. I think that one should be educated in the issues of the day to be able to make one's own mind up on things that are important. I read, and I talk to people, and I think, and I come to my own conclusions. Depending on the issue, I'm sure I can piss people off on both the right and the left.

And what's this "probably much sweeter than you sometimes appear"? I'm so sweet I have to wear bee repellant to go outside!

He's hanging out at sweetbabydee07's place, hijacking the blog and doing his thing. She's too nice to ban him. He's even been nice to me. Something must be wrong. Maybe he's sick? Eating too much grass? I almost feel sorry for him. I won't ban him (I don't ban anyone), but he shows up daily. No comments, but that would open things up. I guess he kinds brings out the worst in most of us. Like Ann Coulter. Like others, I initially respected him, but I think he's kinda deepended things. I wonder if the sky is blue in his universe?

Tell me when and where the right place is, and I'll be there. Would you consider coming to CA?

You did it with inteligence, deliberentness (is this a word?, and fore thought. I'm sure you did not take it lightly. So Good for you for standing in place and purging what the rest of us did not need to be subjected to.

    We found the rantings of that NeoNazi last week and have avoided his blog since.

Then we reconsidered and commented on his blog with amusing results

Thank you. I make that assumption about all people until they prove otherwise. I am a firm believer in civil exchange of ideas I have even been know to change my mind if logic is used I like well thought out and researched prose I detest when people just yell and hurl insults at each other as this solves no problems. As far as I go I kinda like TTiger but fully support you as this is your blog. just my 2cents worth Micah

Being an American Citizen is actually hard work. All these rights guaranteed to us...hey...it's not easy to make them work for you sometimes. That sticky freedom of speech thing is a killer. For you to be able to enjoy your right to stand up tall and shout anything you desire, you have to allow a person who stands for everything you've been known to wholly disagree with your entire life the chance to stand up and yell just as loudly.

Yet...nowhere in that whole freedom of speech deal does it say you can express your opinion at the detrimental expense of someone else. To disagree is human. To do so spitefully and disrespectfully is nothing more than being a bully. I respect opinionated people; I detest and pity bullies.

Good on ya.

My dealings with ttigeratty have always been polite and we don't agree on politics.

Perhaps, it was just bad day for ttigeratty or a bad week. It is YOUR blog but I offer up that you un-ban him after the dust has settled.

I am thinking that:
To err is human; to forgive is divine

I gasped for a second when I saw the hang all the lawyers comment. The first thing I thought of was what about Frogger?! I'm guessing that's who you were refering to in your reply to colcouple4f00. I could be wrong though, it happened once...a long time ago.

I swear...I go on a vacation and miss all kinds of stuff! Since I'm arriving after the fact and have too short of an attention span to really research what happened, I'll just comment on how I see the blogs.

Although in a sense, it IS a public forum, I don't really look at it that way. I see it more as an open house - where I invite anyone who is interested, to stop by my "home." Therefore, I try to be a good host. In my case I choose to leave my more controversial opinions on the side, out of courtesy to my guests.

Conversely, when I visit the "homes" of other bloggers I try to be a good guest as well, aiming my comments at the degree to which I know the other blogger. (example: new blogger = I'm very polite, you = comfort in friendly teasing, bulge = happily calling him an assole) And within that home concept, ejecting unruly guests or choosing not to visit someone is totally acceptable. In another context I might argue free speech to my last breath. But not in this one.

Again, the non-controversial environment is simply my own choice (I have enough confrontations in real life and can vanguish opponents quite well, thank you) and is not something I consider THE end all. For me, it lends itself to the escapism that I really enjoy here.

rm_kelli4u2dew replies on 6/17/2006 8:34 am:
I think that your concept of our blogs is fairly generally accepted, at least that is how I have come to think of mine. There are a fair number of posts around dealing with politics, and I occasionally drift that way. I will enter a debate on someone else's blog if they invite it, but I try to keep it civil, and if I can't then I walk away.

I do not get into religion or a number of other topics where I am sure I could ignite a firestorm. I am happy to let people believe as they will as long as they don't try to push those beliefs on me. Unfortunately, in the political realm that is what is happening.

Hugs. Starting to feel human again?

I am a Canadian that considers himself to be moderate. We have a conservative government in power, but in my opinion, it is a moderate government.

I have listened to Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Neil Boortz, etc and the person you mentioned in your initial post, Michael Savage.

Michael Savage disturbs me. I have listened to his show many times and it was hateful stuff.

98% OF THE LAWYERS ARE
1 CROOKED
2 INCOMPETENT
3 GREEDY
OR ALL OF THE ABOVE
AND IT DOES THROW A BAD LIGHT ON THE REST OF THE PROFESSION .
THE LOWEST THING IN THE WORLD IS A POLITICIAN WHO IS A LAWYER.
40% 0F THE HOUSE AND 60% OF THE SENATE.


rm_kelli4u2dew replies on 6/26/2006 9:56 pm:
I heard a suggestion that we should have a Constitutional amendment to prevent lawyers from running for elected office. Seems like a conflict of interest, doesn't it? They write laws and then make money off of them.

haha... this made me chuckle, I too had my own encounter with him a while ago and got to the point where i wrote an entire post pointing out what a mindless fool he was and that his opinions rarely differed from those whos blog he was commenting on. this meant he would often post opinions on two different ladies blogs supporting the authors of the blog despite the fact they held contradictory views.
didnt bother banning him, just tore him to shreds instead and hes never been back.
i do believe you were right though, harassment is harassment and should be dealt with.
