The best thing to do it let everyone have their fun. If you dont stir people up, they will get bored of it soon enough. Did it strike anyone that the thread was started to see what sort of response it could get?
On the note of the election, I followed it with a geniune interest because I have enough of a brain to realise that hey, this doesn't just affect America. Whether anyone else realises it or not, the outcome of the election had an effect on my country, my economy, my military and the price of my pancake mix. I like to think I'm bright enough to stand out from the regular crowd of election blow ins. If I haven't conducted myself in that manner then fine, fuck it, I apologise, but as an adult I like to keep myself informed and abreast of whats going on in the world.
If that makes me a bad person, then so be it.
Take it to PM if you want to continue the fighting.
