maybe it's not even worth it, but in the interests of hopefully changing someone's mind (even if it's not the person who made the post but an impressionable reader) i'd like to see the person banned but the thread stay open so we can openly refute the bogus claims and info they're posting.
That way they can't contribute any more racist/homophobic posts but we can at least have a chance to respond. I know when i read such utter nonsense i just feel a certain emotional need to say something!
maybe i have too much faith in people, but i picture some lonely guy sitting in front of his computer reading bogus websites with all kinds of fake "facts" sort of akin to the MSM and how they make people believe in things that are just not true by doctoring or selectively using facts to make people think a certain way.
perhaps they've nevr been exposed to progressive activism and just don't have a handle on whats really going on, coupled with a lifetime of being fed these sterotypes by our society. maybe if we were able to counter all the mis information they've been fed i can't see that being a bad thing.
This was a good example i think because his claims of a "gay conspiracy" and total lack of knowledge of FN issues surrounding treaty rights were really easily refuted and there are plenty of informed people here who actually belong to the groups he's marginalizing who could correct him.
