LET IT DROP!!!! [View all]

Let's take for example the insane number of abortion posts that are started to simply get the ranks riled and create a post with hundreds of responses. We need to go back to the very effective campaign of letting these OP's drop!

When you find yourself replying to one of these things simply hit delete and ignore. If you have to respond at all, post 'let it drop'. Before you know it the thing will drop off the page, never to be seen again! This has worked in the past. We need to focus on the real problems at hand and not follow the nuts down Squirrel Trail!
