Appeal for a reported thread that was not pointed

I reported this thread as Trolling, Provocation; http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1744690 and no action was taken by the moderators.

The thread starter accuses Republicans of being Racist and this post and thread is directed at the Republicans who post on RCG. He has been banned on more than one occasion for just the type of behavior. It obviously worked as several other posts in that thread have been pointed for trying to point out his behavior. In response to this thread several others were started that mimic it but are directed at other groups. One of them has been pointed. They are just as bad. Why not the one that started all this mess? Why does RCG allow these types of threads?

I would like to request that this thread be reviewed.

The post is an example of a Logical fallacy or loaded statement, not unlike the statement "have you stopped beating your wife yet?" The premise of the thread is that Republicans are already racists.


Quote:
A loaded question is a question which contains a controversial or unjustified assumption (e.g., a presumption of guilt).

In light of that, I feel the post breaks the following rule;

Quote:
Trolling Provocation. The post contains content which is designed to elicit an emotional response from other users.

This post does not appear to be directed at RCG users and does not break a rule.
