However, for the most part, his calm and carefully-worded responses effectively did what they were intended to do...ruffle your feathers and make you act like a child in a shoving match on the playground.

    I can honestly say that the arrogant and hypocritical attitudes of you and a few others were exactly why I stopped coming here. You just can't help yourself, it seems. If you can't handle objective observation from someone who is actually quite indifferent to your obsession with scfire86, go ahead and block me. I would never block you. It just seems the coward's way to me. Maybe you should try drinking less coffee and cut back on your sugar intake?

    It took a number of reports and an email to the powers that be to finally shut down that ridiculous thread. There was nothing special about his posts in that thread - they were simply cut and pastes of what he considered the day's peccadillos by the POTUS.

    If his posts were thought provoking about firefighting, that would be another story. They haven't been. In fact, he rarely posts anything, unless a certain other poster adds something to the forum, at which point he jumps in and tells everyone just how terrible a firefighter said poster is.

    There are plenty of forums where political posts such as his are allowed, and even welcomed. This isn't one of them. Many other topic specific fora would have completely bounced him ages ago.

    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

      I didn't start the Trump thread. You guys are funny.
      They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

      I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

        Just so we are clear, you are saying scfire is a COWARD because he blocked me. Yet you continue to defend him. Hm, are you a hypocrite or just too blind to see you painted yourself into a corner?

        Tell me though, what do YOU ad to this forum? You don't comment on fire related threads, you come in just to attack other posters here and whine about the members that are still here.

        As for my coffee and sugar intake. Don't' drink coffee and I avoid sugar when I can.

        I'm done wih you unless you post fire related topics. I'm certain you aren't done though. So fire away.

        Have a nice life., or not, who cares.

        Crazy, but that's how it goes
        Millions of people living as foes
        Maybe it's not too late
        To learn how to love, and forget how to hate
