I am sure you are unaware but please refrain when going after individual posters with inappropriate language. It's the post not the person you need to moderate. Some individuals engage in a bit of humor which is necessary given the ludicrous situation. Please refrain from using strong language like 'nonsense' or use synonyms (aka Google search) to move focus on post - not person. My 'humble' suggestions!
First, I don't think I called anybody stupid or nonsensical. Content of the post, Yes, but not the poster.
The focus has been only the content of the post. In an internet forum with anonymous handles, it matters not who you are or what you are. Only thing visible is the post(s) that you make. So, it's the post that gets called out. And that is what happened in this case.
And I'm sorry, I don't see anything humorous in that post. That posts adds nothing to the topic of discussion at hand. Nobody here gets to sit on judgement on another poster.
Let me tell you something - It is not a crime or 'no-go' area on this forum if someone supports imports. Or any other POV contrary to opinion seemingly held by majority. You cannot gang-up on anyone who you disagree with by resorting to such tactics. Please feel free to refute him/them with some fact based posts - but not this labeling bit. The idea is not to have a shouting match but exchange information. A little cussing or strong language never hurt anyone but not this labeling bit. If him/they still don't agree with what you say, please ignore them. But don't indulge in these antics.
Tangentially, if you persist with a certain behavior, it becomes synonymous with you or better still, your handle. And it becomes a marker to keep tab on those likely to breach forum rules.
