What makes you think my comments are not occasionally removed and scrutinized similar to yours? In fact, show me a comment of mine that was "off-topic" and I will remove it myself.

His only purpose here is as a bugaboo, and the reason Jason lets him stay is that it increases page hits.

So TDPF is headed for the same sort of fate as Yahoo News comment threads, which are full of trolls like Meade. Do your job and be an editor, Jason.

We're all trolls. This very thread, started by someone who hides behind his bugaboo name, fisticuffs, is an example of spiteful trollery.

The question is: do you want to be an affable interesting bugaboo - like Meade - or do you want to be a grumpy old ill-humored boring bugaboo? Like Galoot or fisticuffs.

Wow, Meade got absolutely throttled by Tag Evers in the comment section of Dave's article. Nice work, Tag. I haven't seen that thorough of an evisceration since, well, last Friday when kurt_w completely pwned Meade in this thread.

Fear not. Jason will be along shortly to start another bogus "feedback" discussion like this one, or this one.

In it, he will briefly feign interest in your and other forons' opinions on how to improve the quality of the forum's content, before ultimately ignoring or dismissing everyone's ideas out of hand.

And everyone will feel a little better for awhile as the site continues on its current trajectory.

Thanks for the heads-up -- that beat-down by Tag was truly a delight to read.

It's entertaining, right? Fun to read and possibly even thought provoking.

I'm glad we didn't quash it.

I guess I'd find Meade more entertaining if he seemed even remotely sincere about his beliefs. Mostly he's just a caricature of the GOP, saying exactly what he's supposed to say. I get the impression that he's auditioning for something.

I'll save readers a few clicks. Here it is:

Well done indeed.

But I see little reason to be all pleased as if it's the mission of Isthmus to allow a mean-spirited, self-absorbed poster who can't put together a coherent argument to make a punching bag of himself and get his clock cleaned on a daily basis. You might as well give LM his own column, if you're truly proud of yourself for presenting his material.

Oh wait, you already tried that with Blaska, and he even came off as a halfway nice guy. Never mind.

I am actually really pleased by that particular exchange if only because I can't imagine where else you'd find a former mayor, a blogger's husband and a music promoter engaged in a sharp discussion of a student binge drinking festival.

Can you define how you're using "sharp"? Because you can't possibly mean to suggest that discussion was in any way penetrating.

It's pretty clear to me that there is no former mayor in on the "discussion". Citizen Dave has apparently so far resisted any urge to feed the bugaboo.

Meade makes lame remark and then claims it's parody and someone else wrote it.

Tag demolishes that one.

Meade claims he's being "honest and clear."

Tag demolishes this one too, and tells why.

I loved this part: "...you vainly and irresponsibly ring the bell of innuendo." Best description of Meade I've seen yet.

If an exchange like this passes for "sharp" around here things are worse than I thought. Tag Evers was sharp, and that's all.

Why Meade continually puts himself in these situations I cannot imagine, but using him to accumulate clicks seems venal to me.
