    It's not just "he" doing this on a continuing basis here. It's like a version of 9eagle9's old "Their Mind" on continuing display. The hive mind type of partisan tunnel vision on both sides of the political spectrum is breathtaking to behold as it gains more and more steam on a very possible collision course.

    I made it my personal policy years ago to never make use of the ignore feature. I think it's excellent practice in discipline. Besides, I always want to hear what others I disagree with, even highly so, are saying.

    Actually, I did my sorta daily meditation today...never mind...

    One thought though...We have to take the lead and lead it where we want it to go...no amount of complaining will make a true difference...only battle solves intractable problems. As my favorite Chess Sweatshirt says: Choose Your Weapon!

    I recently tried this after using the feature. Your point makes sense. I think it boils down to my having to make a tough choice... Thus I will be in contemplation on this for awhile as it is not an unimportant choice.
