I don't know who the FAB 6 are, but if you put someone on "ignore," their name will show up but their post content won't. However, if someone quotes the ignoree's post in another post, it will show up.

Actually, I believe it was called the six-pack and sometimes the eight-pack. They were the PRIMARY posters in the Political thread. I'm guessing well over 60% of all posts. They were thought by some to be just a little bit right of David Duke, Dick Cheney or Attila the Hun. Anyway, they would lurk out there and wait for a well meaning, unsuspecting middle-of-the-roader, or God forbid, the lower than pond-scum, LIBERAL, to add to the discussion. At that point the six-pack/eight-pack would systematically rip them up one side and then down the other. Great sport, huh?

You are 100% correct....I just get a bit riled up when things are said totally out of context and with little or no facts. One thing my Mother and Dad instilled in me was not to lie and I have grown a very serious intolerance for lying.

You are correct. Listen I would love to type in things I know about the many lives of some folks on here as I was one of the originals in that political forum, talked with before the forum was begun with the old Talk Host, and am pretty sure I am well aware of what, or part of what, cause its demise. NONE of it had to do with the group being referenced and those touting that might look in the mirror.

But,it is gone...a new one is beginning and I am doubting if folks will change much.

PS....Do you think I could get away with outing some of those folks in that forum ? Would love that and allow readers to enjoy all their past names and shenanigans. Well, we will see !!!

A political forum sounds like it could be very interesting. Chances are that it would evolve very quickly into mudslinging with quotes from candidates that made a slip of the tongue or a campaign worker made a gaffe. Everyone gets on top of those right away even though it is not the intent of whatever was said.

There are both liberals and conservatives here in The Villages. It would be interesting to hear valid viewpoints from both sides.

I really doubt if anyone's mind would be changed over comments or posts on a political forum but it would be interesting to see how others think.

If everyone is "guest", you will not be able to ignore anyone.
