Response to choie (Original post)

47. Ignore only works if you only look at DU when logged in.

Another problem with ignore is that sometimes clever people engage with one or another of the insanely irritating trolls, to interesting effects, and those specially spiced subthreads are vanished. But even then, for the worst trolls I'd not say that anything of much value is lost as compared to the sense of liberation that logging in brings.

The most rabid anti-Sanders posters are mostly BrockPAC trolls.
Their trademark is to do ad hominem attacks on "Bernie supporters", swiftboating "Bernie supporters" and sometimes "white progressives" and sometimes "BernieBros" as being if not outright racist, incredibly tone deaf misogynists, sexist and ... otherwise endearing folk.
That's BrockPAC. Paid to Post. Robots.

Putting the ignore on BrockPAC posters isn't a bad thing.
