62. Here's what I've been doing
I didn't find this site until after the 2004 primary season, which I've heard was pretty nasty. But in the years since then -- up until about a month ago -- I never used the ignore feature. After you're here a while you can kind of figure out who has something to say and who just... irritates. As you've discovered, there are more than just a few scattered irritants during primary season. Last month it seemed like more than every other thread was an absolute waste of time, so I started putting irritants on ignore. I probably add one or two a day. I now have about 30 people on ignore and save myself a lot of time and aggravation. On the other hand, there are several DUers whose posts are almost always worth reading (several have already posted here). You might try adding them to your buddy list, and then when they DO post new threads, you can check your list and go right to the meat.

Good luck, and welcome to DU. :hi:
