87. it doesn't "hurt" a candidate
but it is a clue to the poster's motives. and we should do better in both ignoring these posters, and alerting the moderators.

and i agree with you about those kinds of threads...they are stupid. what's even more stupid is the compulsion some feel to respond to them.

however, i still think some folks need to grow some thicker skins, and stop taking the discussions so personally...not you, of course :D

this is one reason even legitimate debates devolve into flame wars. thanks for the discussion.
