It's especially galling given that site rule 4 specifically calls out trolling.

Just don't respond to him, and he will be denied a platform.

I disagree. If his claims are allowed to go unchallenged, more people are likely to believe them But I guess as long as Internet Brands are getting traffic, it matters little to them as long as they don't get sued for allowing breach of copyright if someone copy and pastes too much of an article.

At least FB and Twitter are beginning to clamp down on lies and falsehoods.....

Oh dear. Trump was injected with fetal tissue, derived from abortions.

BE doesn't have enough of an audience to make concerns about 'more people are likely to believe them' valid. The bigger issue I have is link seeding / SEOP manipulation. Google's search engine up-rates any page that has 'other pages' pointing to it, so by Paulry posting his annoying video links, those targets themselves potentially get up-rated in google search results. But again - BE is too small to really worry.

Further - if you reply to a post, it just perpetuates it, increasing chances it will get seen.

I googled idiot man.

Trump is in 9 of the top 12 google images. The google CEO in the bottom left, that photo is linked to an article where he testified in congress as to why Trump comes up when you google idiot.

I see some of you are still grumbling about Paulry. You are not privy to what goes on behind the scenes, so please do not assume that nothing is being done. I hear you when you complain. A few days ago I asked Paulry to stop posting videos/links for a while. This he has done, but no one seems to have noticed, the finger pointing and grumbling still goes on.

Again I ask that if a poster is annoying you, put them on ignore. Yes you will see the post if someone quotes it, but if everyone who is grumbling puts that person on ignore there would be few, if any posts quoted.

Please put this to bed. Any complaints, please PM me. I can be reasonable...maybe.

Thank you.
