    I would like to suggest boycotting future threads started by hippie4lyfe due to his lack of respect for other members and their points of view on this site.

    I feel he has violated the trust and respect members expect on a forum site. The tactics he has choosen to use I feel are dishonest and disruptive to discussion on this site.

    Therefore, the best way to deal with such behavior, in my opinion, is to just boycott his threads. Maybe after he sees that he isnt going to be communicating with these tactics, he will either change his tactics or stop posting.

    I fully concur, if you don't like my point of view or tactics, simply ignore me. Thanks!

    Agreed Caslon

    Maybe the guys running the board should kick him off, as what he engages in isn't healthy discussion. Like a lot of guys on here, he tries to be provocative and shouts people down he doesn't agree with.

    However, on reading his current 'here's a few pictures of meat' thread, I am surprised guys on here rise to his bait. If I see a thread he started by him I know it'll include propaganda and I give it a wide berth.

    Caslon,
    I guess I must have missed something. What do you think Hippie did? While we shared our slightly differing views on politics, I haven't noticed (but I don't read everything certainly) anything that would call for that kind of thing. To isolate Hippie in this way is pretty serious. How do you feel he was out of bounds specifically?

    Ya, this call out is weak.

    You can see who started a thread and ignore someone based on that; nothing more is required.

    Are his 'meat is murder' threads train wrecks? absolutely. But they are real easy to avoid.

    Carson,

    I applaud you. I restrained from responding to the post. I like what some ppl wrote. MSUBIONERD wrote "With a title like this post has, I would have expected some serious discussion as to why many people would be horrified at eating certain animals, but are completely unconcerned with eating others"

    I think if we read his post and think some of it could be addressed in a respectful way be just create a new thread.

    If we want to complain about his post we should do that on a new thread too. Then his pics and poor taste in using a Holocaust quote to describe animal slaughter could fall by the way side.

    I am open to reducing my intake of animals if I see alternatives that do not result in health related issues. However his post just motivate me to have a big juicy steak. Some people should be ignored just like KKK propaganda, the more attention we give those people the more they feel empowered.

    Thanks for the messages of support. I think boycotting his threads is the best way for us to handle such behavior.

    Just dont look at or post to a thread started by hippie4lyfe.

    It's easy to do and doesnt involve management getting into the business of censorship.

    I was kind of vocal in that other thread just out of complete awe for how ridiculous his threads have gotten but I agree with you completely Caslon
