The Ethics of Banning Trolls 754


With genuine reluctance, I find myself obliged to ban Larry from St Louis from commenting on this blog.

I am extremely happy for people to comment on this blog who disagree with my views. It makes it much more interesting for everybody. I wish more people who disagree would comment.

But Larry has a different agenda. His technique is continually to accuse me of holding opinions which I do not in fact hold, and which he thinks will call my judgement into doubt.

Take this comment posted by Larry at 9.35 am today:

I’ve re-read your post on the Russian spies, and once again you’ve proven to be a complete dumbass.

I predicted Russia claiming (in some minor way) those idiots. You didn’t. You thought it was a conspiracy.

You’ve once again self-indicted.

In fact my view on the Russian spies was the exact opposite of what Larry claims it was. As I posted:

I don’t have any difficulty in believing that the FBI really have discovered a colony of Russian sleeper spies in the United States.

This is not Larry being mistaken – remember he claimed he had just re-read my posting. It is rather indicative of a very deliberate technique he has used scores of times, that of claiming I hold an opinion which he believes will devalue my other arguments in the mind of other readers, when I do not in fact hold that opinion.

He most often – indeed daily – does this with reference to 9/11. He tries to divert almost every thread on to the topic of 9/11 and to insinuate that I am among those who believe that 9/11 was “an inside job”. In fact, I am not of that opinion and never have been.

I have put up with this now for months, but Larry’s activities have become so frenetic and are so counter-productive to informed debate, I am not prepared to put up with it any more. I am also deeply sucpicious of the fact that he is able to spend more time on this blog than me, and to post right around the clock (often as with this one at 9.35am – think about it – what time is that in the US?).

Anyway, sorry Larry, your derailing days are over.

    Jaded – ‘As for questions, you mysteriously didn’t answer all my questions. Combined with your previous posts I do find your behaviour suspicious. Let me ask you one simple question Mr. Technicolour and we shall see. I was taught in school that 6 million Jews (human beings) were deported and executed in an industrial fashion. I disagree with that narrative. Disagreeing with that narrative *doesn’t mean* you think that *substantial numbers* of Jews were deported and executed. Moreover, as I have said before, the intimidation of any human being is unacceptable in my view, let alone deportation and execution! Do you agree or disagree with the 6 million deportation and execution narrative or not Mr. Technicolour?’

    So, one month and no answer eh Mr. Technicolour? Or should I say Mr. Zionist?

    Stephen Jones – ”In an industrial fashion’ is somewhat of a bizarre phrase but you were taught quite correctly at school. That you now choose to ignore it for no other reason than that you feel like it is your business.

    The reasons we can be fairly sure of the numbers is that the Germans kept very meticulous records.’

    I’ve never seen any evidence for anything close to 6 million executions. Where are you getting your facts from pray tell?

  • Jaded.

    Clark – ‘Jaded,

    once a conflict is begun, how does one go about ending it? It seems a shame that in the few days that you gave Technicolour to cool off, you did not do so yourself, and have reopened the dialogue with insults.

    Please look at Technicolour’s previous comments on many threads. If you can find any that look like the work of a Zionist shill (apart from the argument with yourself, of course) please point them out for my benefit; I think you will find many that contradict that theory. If your accusations are correct, then I have formed completely the wrong impression of this contributor.

    Jaded, a person can believe the mainstream account of the Holocaust without being a Zionist shill; do you agree? I think Technicolour was mistaken in associating you with Apostate (please correct me if I’m wrong about this), and I think that you have misjudged Technicolour. Now, we need an ‘exit strategy’ for this argument that started months ago. Refraining from name-calling and sticking to the facts could help.’

    Dear Clark, I am always cool and my insults well directed. Perhaps the person intiiating the conflict, Technicolour, should apologise?

    I’ll tell you my logic about Technicolour. I made a few comments about 9/11, 7/7 and the War On Terror. He suddenly piped up out of the blue with his attack. All very odd! If you are a decent human being please bear with me. You need to open your eyes Clark. Zionists twats do patrol the web and do their best to disrupt and bring down websites they don’t like. I have seen this first hand on another site where a couple of them even infiltrated the moderation team. It’s information warfare and it’s crucial.

    I agree that millions of people believe the exaggerated, mainstream account of ‘The Holocaust’ through mass media brainwashing. Of course they all aren’t cynical Zionist shills :-). I reiterate, this ‘argument’ as you put it started on this thread at the drop of a hat. I’ve never had any clash with Technicolour before. Scroll up and reread for yourself. It’s always the same M.O. Clark. They don’t answer direct questions, they always polarise the debate and they attack anyone that sees the truth. Their power is waning though. I always stick to the facts and will always insult those I deem worthy of insults.

    We are all brothers and sisters on this planet. Some just have sick minds though. There’s a nasty ‘gang’ operating at the moment and they need a good radishing. They must number only a few hundred people and are multi-racial. However, a lot of their power does seem to emanate from within the Israeli state. This power is predominantly exercised through financial means, best illustrated by looking at the control of private central banks. They cheat, blackmail, kill and want to control the world. Of course, saying all this must make me a ‘Holocaust denier’ and anti-semite to boot :-0.
