In my view, we can either respond to GO's posts and try to make our dissenting case in a reasonable way, or we can do something we like a lot less, which is not let him make his posts (and I'd hate to do that), or put him under moderation, which is way more work than I want to do.

What I don't like to do is allow comments I strongly disagree with to stand up with no dissent.  I favor open dialogue and even heated arguments to censorship....and censorship is a "gotcha" that GO likes to use to claim he isn't treated fairly. I won't play that game. I'd rather just tell him when I disagree. And that's not just GO, but anybody. I favor letting people speak their piece, and then calling them out if it seems necessary. And anybody can be wrong. I'm wrong a lot, and I try to be willing to listen to other people's POV.

It gets more time consuming to respond to all the ad hom and Trumpovetsky Propaganda GO posts than to just moderate it.  It's also a violation of the CoC to complain about censorship, so just AS H I T-can those posts also.  Takes much less time out of your day than writing a detailed point-by-point refutation of complete nonsense.

I guess I ran Knarf off arguing with his SJW and #MeToo posts. I hope not. I just like to say what's on my mind. I try to be respectful to everyone.

Knarf goes Walkabout regularly.  He's a sensitive guy and when his belief system is challenged, it upsets him.  He'll return at some point I would wager.

At heart, GO wants to be part of a group that thinks just like he does. He want to belong. He also likes to suck up to people he considers special, like Ashvin and LD.  He always writes them such effusive compliments, he's practically falling all over himself. It's completely transparent. But I think he often makes good points, and he's a good man. Libertarian belief systems resonate with me. But I've learned that for most high profile people, the powerful people of our world, that it's an excuse and a smokescreen.

No he doesn't.  He likes to be in a group where he is in the minority and can fight with people.  If he wanted to be part of a group where he would fit in, it would be on TBP.  His fawning over certain people is positively repulsive.  All his "Geniuses" like Elon Muskrat, and Kunstler.  ::) Gimmee a break.
