3. Isn't it amazing even
now on day 2 of a great time there are people that still suck. What did they do to you to make you so mad. I saw your video today and you preach nothing but peace and justice. How can someone make you so mad that you put them on ignore. Your message is all kind ?

17. And they jumped you over that???????
I agree with you. With all the heinous behavior in the world, and previously in congress and the Whitehouse, pot is REALLY low on the list, or should be.

31. Speaking of wrong...
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 08:57 PM by susanna
Have you seen this one yet? A good friend sent it along, as evidently it reminds her of me:

http://xkcd.com/386 /

In interests of disclosure, I have ignored one person on DU since I've been here. I relented about three weeks later. Mostly out of a curious nature. I still think that poster is wrong about everything, though. But I don't post a lot so maybe that has something to do with my (obviously) abnormally low ignore count. :-)

on edit: my fingers are cold and clumsy

6. I think blocking is generally for cowards...
Of course, I'm in all probability the most blocked person here.

13. You're a better person than I am.
I think I put like 20 people in my basement several months ago during a particularly ugly moment during and just after the primaries. I do agree with your stance, and can't see how anyone could argue against it.

44. Being a wonderful person in life does NOT mean one has to be a floormat ....
IF someone offends one so .... Then not being 'inclusive' is exactly what might be necessary ...

Do you include George W. Bush in your circle of desired associates ? .... Paul Wolfowitz ? .... How about Wayne Gacy or Jeffrey Dahmer ? ... associates of yours ?

Inclusive much ?

51. Inclusivity is not a matter of choice.
It is the nature of the game. I have to recognize that certain individuals are a matter of the realm i am in. I choose whether to give them my attention or not. That is what they are seeking afterall.

I prefer to live by my own ideals and those that inspire me, rather than be influenced by those that offend me. I learned long ago the only man i have to be better than is the one i am right now.

But then, that's life's lesson.

ymmv.

34. I used to get aggravated or argue or just get worked up
sometimes I answer one time but then I have to walk away - snarkiness just pushes my buttons - I do not want to be tombstone

I did have one person a long time ago send me a message saying they alerted on me because I said something about the south - I put them on ignore because if they are that sensitive - it is best I do not even talk to them -

Ignore really makes life easier and over time you learn restraint and how to walk away, some places you just stay away from - late at night assume they are drunk if they say stupid things - no group is perfect - those who claim to be are probably worth being careful with because I find even those who say they are spiritual sometimes are just as snarky as repubicans - so make your life fun and move on to another person, group or whatever - there are a lot of people on this site - some of us are going to disagree - there are a number of non-democrats who come here and get to 1000 count and are here just to disrupt - if they are snarky and under 1000 they go on ignore for sure

40. The thing about laws and minors is the laws vary from country to country.
In France, children drink wine and beer at the table starting at a very young age. No one thinks anything of it, and they do not have a nation of wino kids. In Japan, they have big bath tubs and the whole family bathes together. In the US they would arrest the parents and call them pedophiles and tell them they were scarring the kids for life. And yet the Japanese grow up and get jobs and make lots of money and have profitable businesses and do not become serial killers or pedos. Some religions use hallucinogens and they never have bad trips or any other reactions to the drugs.

Just because your country has a law, that does not make it morally right or wrong. The Nazis had laws that said to round up and kill Jewish people. That was the law . You can buy a law with money or at the end of a gun.

45. They don't serve beer and wine at school
and they certainly don't let any random teen-ager sell it to kids on the street.

I do not know why this place chooses to defend pure ignorance.

41. I've blocked plenty of people.
At first I was reluctant to do so but some people have nothing to add but personal insults and/or to endlessly and needlessly bash Obama/Democrats, so I figure why should I waste my time on them when there are so many other good people here that come to DU for civil discourse and discussion and not just to act out their childish frustrations on the rest of us.

If I wanted to listen to people attacking Democrats all the time I'd go to Free Republic!

Do not start a new topic in order to continue a flame war from another discussion thread or to callout a DU member.
