12 November 2017. Beware Both the “Conservative” and “Liberal” Trolls in the Cyberworld

A moderator in a group that I once belonged to pandered to a person who described himself as a “social conservative” on a supposedly leftist website. That person used the venue to “out” someone. The moderator merely “warned” the culprit (who called himself “Ryan Isaac”, if that’s their real name) and kicked me out because I supposedly “told him what to do”. That is, he allowed a self-described “conservative” and kicked out a leftist in a supposedly Left FB group. In another group, they told me to “unblock” one of the admins… in public, no less, not in a PM. Supposedly, they were anti-Trump… in reality, they were pro-Hillary, a rather different animal. Being anti-Trump simply wasn’t good enough… friends told me that the moderator was anti-MP, Russophobic, and intolerant of those who opposed him. I guess blocking one of his buddies meant that I merited a public pillorying. Great “liberal” tolerance, wasn’t it?

Trolls of any sort… including “social conservatives”… deserve no quarter. NONE. I’ve dealt with them for years. If you give them “mercy”, they only regroup and attack again. I’ll be clear… to “warn” a troll is unwise. They simply attack again. For them, if someone “transgresses” any of their made-up rules, why, anything is fair in attacking them. No decency or civility is necessary… one simply destroys the “other” in as nasty a fashion as possible. Many so-called “Liberals” are the same… if you don’t repeat their shibboleths chapter-and-verse, they descend just as nastily as the “conservatives” do. They’re trolls in just the same fashion… they just have more smarmy rhetoric, that’s all.

I’ve found people with “religious” tie-ins to be especially lenient with such trolls. This is crackbrained. Trolls are about… both Trumpkin “conservatives” and Hillarybot “liberals”. Both are equally reprehensible. Have a care… trolls abound in the cyberworld and moderators seem to tolerate them. Don’t take it personally if some group tosses you… it merely means that you’ve pissed off an admin or moderator. Look at the good side…  you learned something about them, and that’s always a positive thing.

Keep smilin’… that really riles ‘em…
