You can kill the messenger but not the message.

if you can´t kill the message, kill the messenger.



This kind of phrases could be used in different scenaries where the debates reach to an extreme irrational.

But Is this forum a battle field to shoot the posters who dislike to others?

The lower way to defeat others´s opinions in this forum  is lying, insulting people,  distorting the original topics, making comparisons in nonsenses ways but what´s worst is disrespecting the posters, viewers and visitors.
Things that happens quite often in this forum

What is your choice?
To shoots the message or the messenger?
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion and if they wish to declare it in a public forum they should be prepared to defend and debate it. This means a reasoned discussion, not a vicious attack using profane and obscene language. The moderators are supposed to police the posts and do so to some degree, but perhaps sometimes their sympathies show through. However, it was good to see today that one such foul mouthed reprobate has been banned (at last). Watch for a new name appearing any time soon.

Robert is like a stubborn inflatable toy in this forum
He can resist any shooting  

The messages in his case arn't relayed, they emanate straight from him so i usually shoot down BOTH.
