I never imagined that it would be so nasty from some folks who won.
The reason they disappeared is because they were talking silly smack all day long every day right up to about afternoonish November 8th, 2016.

I had posts that were removed when I suggested that there was a possibility that we had paid posters. Perhaps I did take it too far when I gave a list of names that all started about the same time and then swamped our forum with insults to Trump and supporters and praises for Hillary. Perhaps they should try reverse psychology next election? There tactics obviously failed!

I was given a "personal attack" infraction for calling someone a troll. Even though 10 minutes later, the person was banned for being a troll.

But to your point, the truth is obviously of little concern around here.

I love these recalled Election threads. I really, really, really wish someone would do an entire show TV show of all of the statements that proved to be wrong made by the talking heads on TV news going all of the way back to July 2015.
