>Literally the only way to suppress ideas short of actual violence is to drown them out with your own.
That's nonsense. You can not suppress ideas as another anonymous poster. There is NOTHING you can do to stop someone from posting their shit over and over again if they're motivated enough. There are obsessed shitposters on this site who will use thousands of proxies, causing range bans on entire countries, just so they can push their bullshit obsessions, and you genuinely believe you can stop someone from posting by drowning them out? All you'll achieve by doing that is shitting up the threads like (You) have shit up this one.
The only beneficial option for anons is to ignore the shitposters and hope they get bored sooner than later. So long as you don't feed the trolls, they will eventually move somewhere else.
>And because people generally follow the crowd, the idea promoted the most stridently wins.
No, it doesn't, you fucking autistic spaz. Stop projecting your dysfunctional, developmental disability opinions as truth. Who the fuck "follows the crowd" on 4chan? Nobody is even told to lurk before posting anymore and our mods have given up over a decade ago. Hell, most of the mod teams are from the 2010s based on the irc leaks.
>You're actually retarded.
Palpable irony. You're like Cimrai, for crying out loud.
>If the purpose of the post is genuine propagation and discussion of an idea, replying to them is the only thing you can do to stop it, lest they think that their idea is accepted or at the very least tolerated.
Yes, clearly. But they can easily be differentiated by how these genuine discussions involve anonymous individuals, and not board personalities who are already recognized for being cancerous. If someone repeatedly propagates their bullshit with no recourse, you know there's no point in engaging them.
>found /lig/, and never looked back.
He's already been her for a while. Lurk for at least two months before posting, faggot.
