Odd...but you were glad that Fox News Canada was shut down for free speech.  How hypocritical.

Since my puppet has

Since my puppet has disregarded the effort to clean up all the trolling and has even attempted to spread it to two new topics, I have removed his posting privileges. I do so quite publically so as to not create any false impressions for my reasons. The rules of the site give discretionary powers to the moderation team to deal with trolling. To be quite honest I'd fully expected one of the other moderators to step in so I could not be accused of bias, but the obvious intent to troll the entire site made me decide to take action.

 I don't see how this relates to SNN. They failed, so they went under. They're so right wing that they, themselves, would say the same about anyone else who suffered that same fate. I don't see how one thing is related to another here. I also don't understand what all the talk of puppets is.

He tried to challenge me to

He tried to challenge me to a troll off. It went on and on and I let it go because I was enjoying myself and I'd contained it to three topics. But I was starting to feel like I was stepping on everyone else by letting it go on so I started pruning it all out. Due to the nature of how it all happened that was a disjointed process that saw all the trolling separated from itself as well as the topics in question. I wouldn't recommend trying to piece it all together, even if you succeed you won't find anything of any interest.

I let him have the last word overall because I hate cheap victories. Since he can no longer respond, anything I say would just be a cheap shot. So I just wrapped it up with an explanation of why we won't be seeing him anymore. I couldn't resist calling him my puppet one last time. Oh well.
