    Yeah, I get that a lot from people who don't use Ignore Lists. They suspect I am 'missing things.' I theorize that it is actually the other way around.

    How could that be?

    Here's my thinking:

    If I spend my time mixing it up with those people then I get into a lot of pissing matches that really don't have much to do with politics but really end up being about personalities and who can come up with the most hurtful insults.

    If I spend my time seeking out the most issue-oriented posters then my mind is stirred to consider complex concepts I wouldn't have otherwise.

    I liken it to moving beyond the chaff to get to the good stuff.

    Now, I know that some of these abrasive people do have higher thoughts. And yes, I miss out on that. But I think it is more than made up for by what I AM getting. I don't have enough time to talk to everybody, so it is only logical to filter out the less desirable and focus on the higher quality stuff. That is far more likely to stir me to research issues in order to form an opinion.

    I don't think my approach is much like DT at all. He doesn't really get into the nuts and bolts as much as just wanting to know how it looks in the media and publicly. That's his version of reality. As far as he is concerned, if it isn't being talked about then it doesn't matter. I know better, and that is a big difference. For DT, the talk determines the reality. For me, it's the other way around.

    If it hasn't been in the news, DT doesn't know about it. Or care. I know and care about what has been in the news plus a lot more.
    Personal Ignore Policy PIP: I like civil discourse. I will give you all the respect in the world if you respect me. Mouth off to me, or express overt racism, you will be PERMANENTLY Ignore Listed. Zero tolerance. No exceptions. I'll never read a word you write, even if quoted by another, nor respond to you, nor participate in your threads. ... Ignore the shallow. Cherish the thoughtful. Long Live Civil Discourse, Mutual Respect, and Good Debate! ps: Feel free to adopt my PIP. It works well.

    Thanks for all of your honest answers.

    I'm not sure that spending any time here in this forum is actually productive in any sense of the word. It seems to be a place to kick the dog and let off some steam.

    Please don't let me sound like I am on your case, as I was really just throwing some different thoughts out there!

Truth Detector for one just posts gifs, spams, and talks pointless smack.
    Isn't scrolling past a post....much easier? Is reading words on a computer screen...really that traumatic?

    Politalker wants to be in an echo chamber. I have never insulted her. She thread bans me because I don't walk in lockstep with her beliefs. That's pathetic for someone who claims to be a grown up.

Giving him simple things like Play-Doh and Magic Brownies should keep him content until the Real Stuff can be administered, like Thorazine.

    I bet you have a good idea who my obsessed minion was talking about, eh? lol

    No, I don't read *any* posts (unless someone else quotes them) -- or quote them myself because that's impossible -- of those on my ignore list. OTOH, I don't do "fake ignore" by not using the "reply with quote" function yet posting snark referencing it either. I also don't spend precious moments of life researching what someone-I-hate-because-she's-better-than-me said every single day, and ineptly pasting them into what I think is a devastating comment. You know, like this aborted attempt at whoring:

    https://www.justplainpolitics.com/sh...94#post3258894

    The poorly-quoted comment was one that I made that had nothing to do with the whore, but someone she saw herself in it. Imagine the shame. lol

    My original comment, wherein I was scolding the OP and posters who were gloating over the latest tropical storm and flooding that devastated our neighbors to the South:

    Scrolling past asshole posts is fine. The ignore function is even finer when they reply to something you've said. There isn't a single person on my ignore list who has replied to one of my posts in a civil manner. I grok anger, but calling someone who disagrees with your racism a "ni**er-lover" is beyond the pale. Calling ppl of another race hideous words like that is too.

    It's interesting that those who admit to ignore lists mostly do it to avoid the hateful racism rampant here, while those who brag that they don't are okay with racism. Evince is surprising in that she won't put any racists on ignore. She's tougher than I am.
