LOL. Because he never posts anything of substance. There is no counterargument because he has no argument, asides from following up my posts calling me "delusional".

The problem is trolls make up probably 1/2 (1/3 if you wanna be really conservative) of all posts in TSB. If you don't respond to trolls you cut the 8 posts a day down to 4, which is pretty god damn slim pickings.

Its almost like "troll" is a buzzword used by e-snowflakes when they encounter a worldview that doesn't match their own...

They are fine with discussing opinions as long as its inside of their box. Maybe some of them can operate outside of that box but know they don't really have an argument prepared. Some of them have decorated the box so nicely that they don't want it to go to waste. For whatever reason, they crumble under anxiety when they see something outside of that box but still feel the need to respond so the name-calling is where they go. "Troll" is just the internet version of this phenomenon.

Then theres the possibility that they just don't know what the word means.

It's 2017 and most of us have been posting on TWW for 10+ years......we know EXACTLY what a troll is. We also all pretty much know your posting history (trollololol). But these are desperate times. You're basically the inept kid we put way out in right field just so we can fill out the baseball roster. We need you, but that doesn't mean we want you to get the ball.

tl'dr - crybabies threatening to cancel NYT subscriptions over an opinion piece they don't agree with.

not over an opinion piece, over hiring a columnist who is using his position to spread false information

To me, it seems like all he was trying to say was "don't be a bunch of arrogant pricks about climate change, and more people might listen to you."

he was perpetuating a false equivalency and readers don't want to support those kinds of lazy "hot take" opinions

Lmao. The leftist backlash over that piece is everything wrong with the regressive left in a nutshell.

I guess the journalist didn't realize the only people reading #FakeNews NYT are leftist fanatics that get triggered over anything that isn't lip service to their regressive ideology.

The bigger problem is that people shouldn't be taking any news source as gospel anyway. The way they are now is that they sign on to a newspaper and run with everything that paper prints. Now they feel uncomfortable because they realize they might not be able to do that anymore. How dare the NYTIMES challenge us to have to think for ourselves!

I appreciate you telling me how to vote and live my life but I'll cancel and subscribe to a newspaper that I can blindly follow without ever inducing critical thought or debate.

If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you're misinformed.

Who the fuck reads newspapers anymore anyway?

Other than maybe the occasional Sunday paper...need those coupons and color comic strips.
