Yes, I am for real.TubularBills said:A Public Forum focused on casting doubt on the credibility of a transparent liar.
The likelihood that the target would one-ball seed the dialogue to sway 'public' opinion?
Are you for real?
democracy = debate.
No-one here has been given any warnings about any specific post in the discussion you are having, publicly or privately, so I'm not sure where you see a democracy=debate angle.
I gave a pre-emptive warning to those that expect an influx of paid Lance agents and low-level posters, that they better not start to speculate in forum threads who of these new posters is an agent or not, as when that situation arises. I did not address anyone directly, it is a general reminder to all.
The mods are quite active behind the scenes to keep the forum here as troll-free as we can, and new tools are being employed which are having an effect.
But we also expect people to understand we welcome new and genuine posters who follow the guidelines with open arms. They might even have opinions which some here find crazy or fan-boyish.
If you do expect people of being paid trolls, or trolls full stop, or someone who has been banned umpteen times, contact us through the system in place, and we will look into it.
See it as a friendly, but serious reminder, prompted by the tone and direction of a side strand in the discussion here. Nothing more.
There is no issue with you guys discussing Lance & Co's PR strategies, as you perceive them.
