They guy makes valid arguments that the UK could be more influential in the world being in the European Union, and expresses a belief in the natural strategic alignment of the US and EU. He does it, however, with the tact of the Sex Pistols. If you want to make an argument, make it in a persuasive but respectful manner without insulting the other side. If that's too much to handle, you shouldn't be in /r/europe. Tread lightly when you're a guest in someone else's backyard.

Nevermind the bollocks, here's a reddit imperialist. Hurr durr, showing off like an alpha male with the biggest member. After checking his other comments though, said user regularly haunts /r/europe (that's the sub he spends most of his time on commenting), is way blunt and forceful, is consistent with his own outspoken views and likes to bold things. It's like he's forgetting that the subreddit is about Europe, not just an American lens through which one sees Europe. Egocentrism galore.

I love how he also happens to be three hundred million bald-eagle swearing, Stars-and-Stripes-waving patriots rolled into one.

tl;dr He won't ever be treading lightly the way he's going.

The person he's replying to in this submission actually says exactly that:

>I mean.. who the fuck are you, to interfere with other countries? and why do you think it's your job to "save the world"? I really don;t know where you get this idea from? perhaps your government suggested it so they could profit from foreign war? (which incidentally often kills a lot of your soldiers..... why on earth would you be interested in that? if your worried about terrorism.. simply don;t allow terrorists near your country?

I think that might've hit a nerve for him which led to this beauty. lmao

The user actually messaged me, and said he's banned from SAS. He also said: "Perhaps I shouldn't of responded in kind, but I still believe it was fair in a way, although in retrospect maybe I did go a little over-board."

It seems that vitriol begets vitriol. Nothing to see here.

That's CurtHoliday- note the crafty way he disguised his name for his alt? We banned that asshole from here twice in the same week.

I suspect his original account is banned at /r/europe too and that's why he's using the alt.

He does seem to be pretty clever.

Holy shit, didn't even notice this at first.

I don't understand why you're downvoted, but it's probably him with all his alt accounts :P

There's some blistering, almost /r/GunsAreCool level brigading and downvoting afflicting this sub these days.

Yeah I know; I got this guy brigaded and I kinda feel bad. :(

I mean...look at the vote disparity between the post I linked, and it's unlinked parent comment.

I didn't mean for that to happen and I thought the rules here prohibited brigading. :(

The rules do prohibit brigading, but we can't see who is doing the voting.

The admins can though and they regularly shadow-ban the people who do it- and all power to them for doing so.

I don't think it's this sub's regulars who are brigading though, it seems to have got a lot worse recently than it used to be and I suspect another sub is behind it in an effort to get us closed down.

Anyway, the admins will be looking into that in the near future, and if it turns out that our suspicions are correct, then that sub will be shut down with any luck.

No, I mean brigading of THIS sub..

The comment he made hasn't been brigaded.

e.g. look at chive's comment score right now at the top of this thread.
