    P.S.

    Not sure what FSM is. 
    You haven't been touched by his noodly appendage?
    You mean like Mobey did to Team Trump Treason?
    I know it's hard but, try not to taint every thread you come across.
    Snitty.
    no. its fucking tiresome. seriously.
    I'm sorry some on here don't share my sense of humour when it comes to Team Trump Treason and our ghastly one degree of separation.

    Lighten up. Seriously.
    It's not funny.

    Trolling, yes.

    Funny, no.

    I don't think it qualifies as trolling.
    I know it can be hard - been there - but maybe just keep scrolling?

    Exactly.  I, for one, ignore any and all posts from Halifax these days regardless of content, lol.  My only hope is that I am given the same lack of attention so that I can freely vent my nonsense here 24/7 as well!

    Trolling: a person who intentionally antagonizes others online by posting inflammatory, irrelevant, or offensive comments.

    I'm looking at the irrelevant part of the definition.

    We all bit on it since we are commenting...

    Maybe not irrelevant to him? I dunno. I guess maybe easy for me to say, as Halifax doesn't bother me at all, lol.

    H2M is enthusiastically anti-Trump.  I can't blame him for that and I don't think he means to be trolling- I don't see that as his motive.

    I agree with PJSoul and Brian. I don’t see trolling and I do think it’s funny to see how Halifax works TTT in, like the Moby example above.

    I don't see it as a trolling either, but everything being about trump is becoming exhausting.

    irrelevance is subjective.

    Hmmm interesting question...

    Trolling?
    Dumb?
    Juvenile?
    Annoying?

    Which one is it?  Can it be more than one?  Is it none of the above? Doesn't seem like trolling to me, but I may not be 100% up on the definition.

    The "relevance" for me was FSM + touched by noodly appendage = Moby rubbing his dick up agianst Team Trump Treason, which just happened to be in the news the last couople of days. For me, its like adding 2 + 2. Maybe for others its quantum physics? Sorry, its how my mind works. Maybe I need meds?

    But you know whats really fucking exhausting? School kids being shot in the fucking classroom almost every week. You know what else is really exhausting? A president, dems and repubs in congress and a large swath of the US population who absolutely refuse to do anything about it other than proclaim more guns and more access to guns is the solution. You know what else is fucking exhausting? The dread and fucking anger I feel everytime it happens and the fear I see in the faces of school aged children being traumitized over and over again with lock down drills or shootings near their schools and in their neighborhoods. Yea, I'm fucking exhausted but its not from reading the drivel everyone posts on here. Maybe Canada should try what we live every fucking day here? Then talk to me about being "exhausted."

     Maybe I need meds?
    Yeah I'd say so. Some counseling to go along with it wouldn't hurt. You do seem to have a bit of a Trump addiction/obsession. The fact that you (presumably) have a word document saved on your computer with that thing you post over and over and over (Follow the Ptape, etc.) is pretty sad. And I don't mean "sad" in an insulting way. I see some of your posts and think "Jeez, this poor guy. He seems to have Trump on his mind every moment of the day." You probably think about Trump more than even Hannity does lol

    fair enough on paragraph one, it just seems you take every single opportunity, no matter how little a connection it has, to compare to something trump has done/will do/is doing. 

    yeah, we're all exhausted by that, as you are well aware. not sure what canada has to do with anything here, since all 3 canadians here on this page agreed that what you did was not trolling. only i said it was exhausting, while the other two didn't agree. so why focus on my/our nationality whenever you are disagreed with? I haven't been directly affected by it. but I have friends and family in the US, so I fear every fucking day when i see headlines about this shit. If you wish to claim the outrage as solely an american "it's all about US, YOU don't get it, foreigner!" right, go ahead. I just don't see the point. But I will continue to be concerned on a daily basis for the safety and well being of kids I don't know and the ones I do know, just like americans do.

    I'm not exhausted by it at all. I couldn't care less. I don't understand why it bugs anyone TBH, since it's not attacking people or anything like that. It's not personal for anyone here IMO. Just ignore it.

    He always takes things in stride, which is one of the reasons people going off about his harmless posts is vexing. If everyone took things in stride the way Halifax generally does when people go after him, this place would be a lot more peaceful, lol.

    It's just...some of us are Trumped out. Sure when you click on any of the Donald Trump threads (or ones on immigration, the republican party, and Fox News), you're asking for Trump-talk. This thread was going fine with the police talk, until good ole Team Trump Treason had to be brought into the mix. 

    And it's not that every thread needs to stay on topic. It's just a band's message board. I thought OnWis97's Backspacer joke on the post above was funny. Who cares if it has nothing to do with this thread? But concerning Trump, it's really becoming too much. And I'm talking in general, not just here and not just from Halifax. Trump's crept into every part of our society. And I bet he fucking loves it. And I'm not trying to suggest that Trump should just be ignored. He's a menace. But to think about him or joke about him or be researching him constantly, ugh, god bless those folks. January 2025 is a long time away.
