We could tell, from behind the scenes, that onefortheroad was not who “he” said he was. Our mistake was wanting the “democratic” blog process to run its course and hope, with enough people here ignoring him, he would simply go away. However, it is clear, that there was a set up, so that Greg could use the comments posted by onefortheroad to demonstrate that we are a “hate” group over on Anti. What I have done is posted every comment, beginning with Moon-howler, calling out onefortheroads behavior. Unlike Greg’s blog, where hateful comments mostly go unchallenged, several posters attempted to encourage onefortheroad to go away, or suggest instead we ignore him in hopes HE would go away. This has been a learning experience for the blog, and we will make sure, in the future, that we are more aware of the duplicitous nature of the cyberworld and react accordingly to deal with hateful/aggressive comments when they are directed at a person or a specific group. Onefortheroad was clearly not here to discuss anything, his posts were simply to give an opportunity for Greg to “capture” the comment and use if for his own purpose. For those of us who can see behind the scene in the cyber IP world, it was clear that onefortheroad was questionable. We want to let free speech reign here, but we also want to allow people an opportunity to debate with people who are actually interested in having a “conversation”, not just playing a game that wastes people’s time.
Below are all the comments to onefortheroad, calling him out on his unacceptable comments. I’ll begin with Moon-howler as they told him he was now in moderation due to his comments:

OneForTheRoad has been placed in time out until the Blog-Mom is home and can review his posts. I did this with her approval because people felt that threats were being made.
New rule until Mom gets home: Do not threaten anyone. If you don’t like my decision, tattle to her later today.
Meanwhile, perhaps other bloggers might not want to respond to OFTR. Granted he not only enjoys talking with himself, but also arguing with himself, but let’s not give him the time of day.

Like all “pests” if you ignore them long enough, they will go away..trust me, this one too shall pass….

It is clear you are not “credible”. Your posts are schizophrenic in nature and you are clearly choosing to single out LPOW for harrassment, he is neither an HSM , KKK or neo-nazi member. Most likely people will choose to disregard your comments, which I believe is the best recourse.

OneForTheRoad- Do you feel like a “man” now? Threatening people? What’s up with you?

“OneForTheRoad- Do you feel like a “man” now? Threatening people? What’s up with you?”
He’s Trolling, he’s just looking to pick a fight and get attention. He plays to both blogs and switches sides randomly, just ignor him, he gets off on getting people mad.

Just in case it isn’t clear to people, please ignore oneforthroad. I think it was Mando that had the intial suggestion, and we should follow that lead.

OneForTheRoad- You have not answered my questions yet. Why are you threatening people? And, what’s up with you?
