Instead of joining and telling everyone "Hai, I iz not like u, but can i haz debatez?", you could actually start a real debate. What is the purpose of this thread?

It is that arrogence that will get you banned.

Abstract liberty, like other mere abstractions, is not to be found.

I'm intrigued - although I'm wondering if a non liberterian who thinkgs they'll "win" their arguments here is capable of understanding liberterian arguments. Presumably if you were capable of understanding our arguments you'd be a liberterian (either that or you'd be just plain evil ;-)

What are you then, exactly?: Liberal, Authoritarian, Big Gov. Conservative, Socialist, ect,

Nothing specific, but non-libertarian can mean a lot of things.

One post and he is gone!  Poof!

At most, I think only 5% of the adult population would need to stop cooperating to have real change.

Its not the number of posts, but the points earned from them. He's got 95 pts and counting for one post! He has defeated us all.....

Now now, no need to start throwing around banning threats - even if they are goaded from the poster. I dont see why we ban anyway.

I ban trolls, and if he is one, he's gone. The last person who wanted to "debate" (read: troll/flame) on here definitely suffered such a fate...

You'll have plenty of people clamoring to debate you so I don't want to pile on here but if you want to debate just one on one let me know and I'll give you my email.

I am not sure if you are referring to my post.  I am just observing that he made one post about how he is going to debate, and then said nothing else.
