|go ahead... be a heretic|
I am tired of this thread already, but once it gets productive I feel obliged to answer.
> because it is, as you pointed out, a zero-value node.
As I already said in the OP it wasn't entirely clear for me if this was trolling or genuine anger, otherwise I would have considered it already for calling people "scum". Hence clever and emotional!
My intention was to at least "flag" it as inappropriate to warn others to engage in longer discussions. (Aka Troll feeding)
No zero value at that point.
Anyway I don't really care much about this particular node, it was even safe from reaping, but the fashion of considering "troll-feeding" is worrying me and I know how group behaviour can gradually change if such things are not addressed.
I expected trouble, maybe not to this extent, but did it anyway.
It's also troubling me if people try to stop discussions because they don't like the subject or the participants.
This wouldn't be my community anymore!
