They ice users that need to be removed from discussions due to rude, mean, or personal attacks.
Why are the attacks on Mark allowed to go on page after page? Can one of the mods help me to understand why that behavior is clearly defined as unacceptable in the rules of this site, yet, is allowed to continue day after day, thread after thread?
I agree, Emp. However, calling him names and harassing him mercilessly is a personal attack and it never ends. The man cannot post without constant insults about his intelligence, appearance or opinions. It's old and against the rules here.
You don't know Mark and like you, he's a fellow poster on this site. As such, he shouldn't be met with vitriol every time he posts here. Neither should you or anyone else. He gets it the worst of anyone all day, every day. It's tiresome and against the rules.

Maybe he should be sure of the facts before he posts. I've seen several posts where what he said was just plain wrong because he wasn't up to date. Plus some of the pictures he posts are plainly incendiary. If he is going into that world then he must expect to be attacked.
No, he shouldn't expect to be "attacked." How about maybe discussing your point of view like an adult and allowing him to do the same? But instead, we get to read the pile-on effect of insults post after post from the same people. It's ridiculous. If you were sitting across from Mark at a Starbucks, you would never say that crap to his face. You would conduct yourself as a respectful adult. Pretend you're in person when you respond to his posts.
I disagree...I think he has a different point of view than the majority on KU and because he speaks out, he is punished severely. His delivery may not be the best, but, imo, he does not deserve the treatment he receives. I think people need to step back and really read what they are saying to him and hit backspace before hitting add comment. You can disagree with Mark without ripping him apart.
Yes, I have and I don't believe the dog pile you and a few other engage in EVERY TIME he posts is necessary or warranted.
You don't like the guy...I get it. That shouldn't give you free license to eviscerate him on KU every day. You're an adult, right? Would you want your kid to behave that way? Or have someone behave that way toward your kid? Be the example you'd want your child to emulate.
"I disagree...I think he has a different point of view than the majority on KU and because he speaks out, he is punished severely. His delivery may not be the best, but, imo, he does not deserve the treatment he receives."
You and I have different point of views, and you and I don't attack each other....much. Mark is beyond having a different point of view and purposefully posts stupid shiz knowing he will get a reaction. We oblige
Your Spider-Man gif was hilarious and not a personal attack.
However, telling someone they're stupid, posting their real picture on memes to ridicule them, calling them "Chrissy Snow" because you think they're stupid, telling them they didn't do better than C's in school and the myriad of other examples, is the problem. Him posting here shouldn't incite that kind of reaction from fellow adults. You're better than that.
Good one, use it on bestone next time he whines about insults...?
I don't whine about insults. I just state the fact that when the left can't defend a position, they use insults. That's been proven time and again. Of course, Hillary used that technique and you can see where it got her.
the Markster --- 7 sec ago - quote - hide comments 7hrs zero mod response. Why? KU mods are a joke. Only certain persons can be abusive or Antagonist with little or no consequence from a mod. Where other certain persons get iced for petty infractions.
