How is this thread not trolling (group attack)


I came across a thread I thought was offensive and rose to the use of the report button.
I reported the thread and it has not been removed so I guess the mods deemed it ok, I feel they were wrong.

Could you please review this issue and post an explanation on how this thread does not break the site rules of Trolling (group attack).
Link:
You might be a liberal if...

From the rules page:
Trolling (Group attack) The post contains an attack against the intelligence, character, or appearance of a group of users.

As a Liberal I am offend and would like the thread removed.

I can move this to appeals but the group attack rule only applies when a user is talking about a specific group of users on RCGroups. This thread is like many others in LTUP and is not specifically directed at anyone on RCG.

Hi Jim,

Yes please move this to appeals.

I am a Liberal and I am also a member of RCGroups.
I can change me complaint to personal attack if you wish.
I feel this thread gives free rein to attack Liberals under the guise of humor.

This is tough because I just supported the moderator's decision to infract a user for a "group attack" against Republicans.

The problem for me is that moderating LTUP is very complicated and time consuming, and I don't feel up to the task of correcting the moderators. It seems like every day there is some sort of group attack going on.

I think it's time for me to re-evaluate that rule and LTUP in general. I'll sit down with the moderators and talk about our practices for moderation there. I believe the forum serves an important purpose but it is taking up too many moderator resources right now.

Jim
