    Hmm. I set this poll to show who voted what, but I'm not seeing it. Anybody else?

    Re: All your rhetoric belong to us

    I'm pretty sure that I would be above 90%. I don't like to insult anyone. And I try to avoid getting to the point where I am going to insult someone on purpose or even accidentally.

    I have said some pretty bad things about certain posts and posters to my husband though. The specifics stay offline though.

    nope, i think it has to be 'public' or whatnot

    I try to avoid rhetorical hackery but its probably easier for me since I outcast myself from domestic politics.

    I think thats a pretty good place to start actually...why do people come here in the first place? For me it is a diversion. There are topics I like to discuss, some I have just given up on and wont go near anymore, some people that I value and look forward to reading their comments, and some that I dont bother even glancing at their comments because I can say what they are before I read them (Im not naive enough to think that I didnt just describe myself there for some folks as well).

    I have had good discussions on things like capital punishment and have in fact changed my position 170 degrees (edit-more accurately that would be 190 degrees. Some I have gone completely counter to my original mindest, then returned just a bit). Same with healthcare, education reform, and social spending. There are however threads where you just know the creator is begging for someone to jump in and show what a mindless hypocritical partisan hack they are being, and I happily attemopt to oblige.

    Sometimes Im just in a mood and post things for fun...fun to me.

    Better than 99%. I remember 2 posts that I regret in the public areas of the forum, and only a handful more in private.

    Re: All your rhetoric belong to us

    To answer your question, I define rhetoric different than most seem to here. People see it as hackery, when I see it more along the lines of persuasion. As such, I would say nearly 0% of my post would remain.

    My sister asked me that very thing, mostly because I've been sharing some of the more inflammatory troll comments. As for me, this place is addictive. There's a lot of really good people here that I'd definitely miss if I never saw them again.

    Would send this thread to the basement quite quickly.

    But don't worry, you're not on my list.

    Re: All your rhetoric belong to us

    I'm not really sure if we can answer this question for ourselves. I would like to believe that I would register at 99% as I try my hardest to respect everyone and to not resort to partisan hackery. Although I guess it depends on how others perceive our posts.
