  • Welcome to 21st century journalism.

  • Tang needs to go

  • RichLL

    Do you have any reason to believe that she does not have the majority support of her district constituents?

  • You mean in the suburban Sunset? Probably, but as a neighborhood resident and daily rider of the L train she doesn’t have my vote.

  • murphstahoe

    do not feed the troll

  • thanks for the warning.

  • p_chazz

    Yes, by all means transform Streetsblog’s comments into murphstahoe’s echo chamber. Mustn’t have any dissenting views.

    while I sometimes enjoy reading the comments, RichLL appears to either be paid per post to agitate or just enjoys arguing about whatever in a city he/she does not seem to have any connection to or knowledge of.

  • RichLL

    Yes, Murphstahoe really does seem to have an anger and intolerance problem. His reaction to anyone who expresses an opinion that he personally does not agree with is to harass and stalk them, apparently trying to intimidate them into not posting.

    I always post on-topic, with facts and reasoned argument and research the topic if I am not sure of all the facts, It’s really pathetic when all he does is make personal attacks on others, which ironically makes him the real troll.

    He was banned from SFist at least once for that kind of behavior, and Roger should give him a final warning here. The best discussions areconducted in the spirit of tolerance and that respect a diversity of viewpoints

  • murphstahoe

    “He was banned from SFist at least once for that kind of behavior” – you have me confused with the man in the mirror

  • RichLL

    The point is that if you want to debate issues then I am always happy to do so. I come here for mature informed lively discussions on the topic, and not childish exchanges of insults.

    Let’s keep the cheap name-calling out of it, OK?

  • murphstahoe

    I don’t think what you write is worth engaging upon, but reading it I do believe that you have well formed views, even if I think they are incorrect. For example you don’t present facts that are clearly incorrect, you might have a different interpretation of what those facts mean, but generally you have your facts straight and rarely speculate on facts regarding things you have little or no exposure to. I don’t engage with you because I find the debate tiresome, but I don’t think you’re playing games with people.

    RichLL on the other hand repeatedly will jump in with a statement of fact that is clearly false, not just to a trained observer but to anyone who has a passing interest in these sorts of issues. Most of these times they are debunkable with a 5 second google search. So someone goes off and finds the actual fact, points it out, and every time there is the exact reponse – “well, what I was trying to point out was really…” misdirecting from the falsehood.

    That stinks of just getting kicks from getting people to go to google to debun his falsehoods – commonly known as “trolling”. There are plenty of other tactics he uses – and they are spot on with the most famous local troll of recent times – RoyTT
