    I think it would be better to call out those who cross the line, rather than say nothing to them and report them to the moderator.

    WE is a good place for open-minded people to exchange ideas. But it is certainly not a good place for people who are closed-minded and preach their answers as absolute truth, especially without evidence or facts to back them up. Those folks (right and left) are rightfully challenged and sometimes act like cornered animals, lashing out in self-defense.

    A key trait that separates us humans from animals is our need to ask questions and find answers. There is a tendency for many not to ask certain questions for fear of the answers they will get. So they start with their desired answer and make sure every question they dare ask gives them that answer. Like I said before, these people get rightfully challenged. When they don't it's time to worry about the future of our species.

    So I will continue to read/post in WE and I hope others do as well. I have learned more there than I can say.

    Beau is literally begging to be banned again by choosing this screen name and posted vile garbage referencing rape. He's deliberately testing the waters to see if the moderators are even reading the boards. I'm guessing they aren't.

    So we're pretty much a non-moderated discussion site now, where trolls have free rein?

    Where are you guys?

    Is anyone who has control of LP going to do anything?

    Or are you just going to let some of these bozos keep polluting the discussion boards to the point more people leave?

    I strongly suspect Doobekah no longer run LP. Perhaps it was sold off to another party, and the new guys don't moderate the boards as assertively as Doobie had in the past. I have no other explanation for why Beau is being allowed to post with these screen names, personally insulting other posters with language unsuitable for a Disney family-centric web site.

    I have little hope that anyone is going to shut him down and kick him off. Looks like we're stuck with him.

    And on that note... if Beau so desperately wants to take over LP WE, and the mods no longer care whether or not he plays nice, fine. LP ain't the only discussion board in the universe. Life is too short to suffer fools gladly. If I'm going to waste time on the net, I'd rather watch videos of puppies and kittens.

    And yes, Beau... congratulations! Your five-year-old temper tantrums worked!

    I'm not going to post on LP anymore as long as you're still posting here.

    Good job!

    (That's the objective, right? Drive down the traffic of the web site that banned you from participating? Make them pay for hurting your feelings? Well, mission accomplished!)

    Beau, I hope your happy about being the jerk that you are.

    Seriously... LP administrators are OK with someone calling themselves "BeausHerpes"??

    What if I created a sock puppet named "ImagineeringGonorrhea"? Would that also fly?

    Doobie would have banned both of 'em.

    I have no idea what's going on with the current crop of mods.

    I'm still banking they're on vacation and no one is minding the fort.
