    One need not read much research on the matter of insults (name calling/nicknaming and empty declarations), and the folks who utter them, to realize that the insults' very delivery reveals more -- namely weaknesses and character/personality flaws and maladjustments -- about the person doing the insulting than about the object of their degradation.

    I know. I am not completely innocent on this topic. For a good many months I called Trump Swampy. People got tired of it so I stopped. However, there are certain posters here who make up new nicknames for candidates they don't like. It seems to happen randomly just to trigger the other side and it's almost never the same nickname. Hell sometimes the "nickname" is longer than the candidates actual name!!!!! It was fine when we only had Paulbots (I think I got in trouble for that). But Paulbots was a universal nickname that was used on the internet quite frequently. Now, it's getting to be every single Democrat. I don't see it much with Democrats calling people names besides for Trump, who let's face it he has it coming from a thousand miles away....

    But calling other candidates or people names is immature and takes away from a debate. Especially when they can't defend themselves or never asked to be called names. Frankly a lot of the language here has to be better monitored.

    There's been some great threads but the poster who start said thread started it in a way that was way too angry or incendiary that I pulled away from them. I have other places I can go to see that type of crap. Such as joke/parody accounts on twitter. if this site doesn't start to deal with this problem you will lose more people.
    I was hoping this was about those who abuse other members with name calling and insults.

    It is definitely time to decide to be better, and to consider shunning those who refuse.

    We have to start someplace, and that is a good place to start.
    When society throws away the Truth Tellers prepare for the worst, for it is surely coming.
    Open your eyes and your mind and then speak truth..........That is the only way forwards.

    So you want to control speech that you don't like. What a surprise.

    I guess you don't want me to be able to post about Crying Church Schumer, Crooked Hillary, Pocahontas Warren, or Crazy Maxine Waters.

    Yet, I am sure you love to post about Trump and call him every name in the book.
