The relation between him being a good or bad person and his medical prowess has nothing to do with it.But rather the slandering does.That's my point.
Even if he is a public person, he is a beloved public person, no matter how much you may disagree with me.More than it though, he is a beloved political beloved person.I agree completely with the Michael Jordan example, but it depends on the situation.If it were someone who kept saying annoying things about Michael Jordan in any thread that might have a relevance, then yeah it might be worth looking into, because that might be considered flamming.In another words, baiting people into fighting with you and entering such discussing in bad faith.
That's obviously not Truck case, because I don't remember him doing that regulary, but one such example off the top of my head of a user that was banned regarding this kind of "annoyance": Kerotan.He almost never did anything that was ban worthy according to the rules, but he always baited Nintendo fans in his discussing.In another words, he kept provoking people over and over again.Other example is Goodnightschrum(I think that's him, not sure now.Sorry if I'm confusing with someone else!), which was the same as Kerotan, but in regards to Sony fans.
In regards to the bolded: Then you can actually say that the thread is the original "original post being just a shitty post" because let's be honest, with a title like "Someone has a plan how to fight Coronavirus, but it is not the clown in the White House" you are not exactly being civil or at least nice to others who think otherwise.That actually is the definition of baiting/flaiming, as I understand it.I would actually say that even if it could be worded better, Radek response was the post this thread deserved.
you can make an argument that the original thread title is to blame for the whole series of events. Even with the thread title in mind, I agree with Truck that the post he replied to had terrible logic and I was considering replying in the same way. Just because someone does something good doesn't mean they are beyond reproach for other bad things they've done. It's poor logic.
Don't care that he's a beloved political person. If I think he's an idiot I'm going to say so (I do by the way), and until it becomes continuous and belligerent (and I'd argue it has to be off-topic) I don't think there's any issue.
Since it hasn't become continuous and belligerent I don't see how the examples provided apply.
Again, you can make an argument that the thread title is baiting. Ask a mod to change it if you want. I'd do it myself but I think they decide these things by committee these days and I wouldn't want to step on any toes. Also not sure I still have the ability.
Bolded: You are correct.I just though that the kind of response Truck gave was inappropriate, but I have been corrected.Just felt like it was unfair to Radek, since honestly, if I didn't kept it to myself, I would have written something similar to what he wrote, without the name calling of course.
Second paragraph: No problem at all.Just like I have to call out politics and it's policies, you have the same right.Again, though the response was inappropriate, but I was corrected and was given response by the mod team that it was ok and that wasn't baiting.
Third paragraph: As I said, dosen't apply to Truck because I don't remember him having a history of doing that, but I wanted to let that out because if that didn't happen before, it sure will in the past.It may be naive of me to think like this, but I believe there is a better way of saying you disagree with someone vision or behavior than calling names.Just because someone did a bad thing or had an inappropriate behavior, dosen't mean you have to go to his level.It's up to every one of us to keep discussion civil.
Nah, won't report. CGI and Ryu already posted in this thread.Meaning that they either know of the problem and don't care, and know and like it.Either way, I would just be losing my time.Also I don't need to point out that using a natural disaster to point fingers or have a petty war against someone with different view is silly and inappropriate.That's just common sense.
