If democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch, then American democracy is 3 wolves and 4 lambs voting, except the wolves count as 3 votes because they live in the countryside across three different states, and all 4 lambs live clumped together in a city so their vote only counts as one.
"The only way to get rid of me is to deal with me."
Wow, you're right... there's no way he can ignore you indefinitely, by himself. He'd have to, I don't know... crowdsource some way to ignore you. Maybe a button, of some sort. Like, a way to flag your posts as useless drivel, so that people who aren't entertained by them can just skip them, without any actual effort from the site admins. Why hasn't that happened yet, we'll never know.
"The only way to make me lose interest is to have an open and honest discussion with me."

"If you're not familiar with the carnival game of the same name, it goes something like this. A mole pops out of a hole and you bludgeon that little bastard with a man-hammer. Then another one pops up from another hole. After bashing that one, another one pops out elsewhere."
Ok, now imagine this variant:
There's a mole somewhere. Every few seconds he writes his name in a piece of paper and throws it out of a hole. You bludgeon that paper with the hammer. Then the mole writes his name in another piece of paper. Eventually, your arm falls off, while the mole lives happily eating nachos and watching mole porn.
