People not being particularly civil on the internet?

I’m not excusing bad behavior just acknowledging that it is almost inevitable in certain forums where battle lines are drawn and people are passionately dug into their positions.

I just think there is no use in bitching, crying or worrying about any of the hubbub. When I don’t like what’s on TV I just change the channel.

Sorry but in my book this is all much ado about nothing.

Just like to point out that there are progressives who have left or severely restricted their participations in the forum because of hostility from right (which may or may not have been aimed directly at them but made a toxic environment for them)

I figure for the most part they just do other things with their input time. Hopefully some still listen and even contribute. That would be pretty cool. Speaking of pretty cool, I've looked back over a lot of posting history and the members coming and going. Astonishing. It was great even though there was passionate disagreement all along. Such is life?
Anyhow most faded without a good bye. Like buddy said, it didn't fit their need. I guess it all depends on what your definition of 'it' is.
uh-oh. tangent lol.

Three versions of drama here in the forums IMHO:
kurtster - with whom I disagree on politics but have polite grownup conversations about music/turntables/vinyl. It’s sad to see people attack him personally.
Ohmsen - who seems intent on stirring the shit but also has posted some interesting musical videos and seems to also be here for the tunes. Meh.
KK - who has done nothing but stir shit since arriving. They’re one of the reasons that the forums are contentious - it’s their goal. They have no additive value at RP. They need to be kicked off.
 
Agreed. I think someone who has admitted to the fact that they are paid to stir up political shit falls under the spam category. 

It about as much fun as getting emails from a dead uncle in Nigeria. The novelty very quickly wears off.

Yeah. I guess you're right, VV.  Make a bed, eat the dead. Who cares? Maybe B@R but maybe not. After all, it's probably to much to ask that people temper disagreements. The point of enjoying the relief it gives to let a non-compliant reprobate have it right in the face. It feels good, after all.  Also they deserve what they get. What's to save? Live for the moment baby! Who really gives a farcical damn? 
Additionally, there are plenty of other online radio stations just like this one to listen to. 
Honestly! I'm not trying to make a moral argument. There is no right thing; no point, no reason. Do what you will. To extrapolate, kill them all and let God sort it out. I got mine. Everybody that doesn't agree with me can chew on the gamble...

F a bunch of conviction. F the connection. F the future...
or something else...

I’m doing the same. Respect for your choice, Kurt.

OV, brother - thanks but we’re grown men who don’t make decisions lightly.  It’s just not fun or interesting anymore.  My input has become irrelevant - my call.  Maybe Kurt has higher priorities in his life than this. It’s his choice. Sometimes folks just need to take a break IRL. 
 
Then what are we talking about? Which road got us to these faded purposes? What is the point? What was the point? 
Is this a logical place to come and engage in a way that forces people to be so disassociated as all that? 
Maybe some people give into impulses online that they never would in real life. Why? Which is the projection?
Because from what I see around here it seems the place is not the issue at all. Never was...

Nah. Why? Besides, we don't have a way to journal. Gotta reach sometimes. Reach out. Your gifts live there. Your humanity. 
Your ability to reason. Sometimes you have to ignore the things that bring you down. Everyone has a part to play. Don't waste it...
