Starting to use the ignore feature

I only had one or two people on ignore up until today.

Now I'm just going to ignore the trolls and the socks. Also ignoring the posters that don't continue to any discussion.

Who on earth has enough time to do what they do?

It's one thing to have different views, what's going on here is just weird.

1. I've never had an ignore list, but it is getting tempting.

There seem to be a great many posters who post in nearly every thread, but never have anything to add to the discussion other than ridicule and falsehoods.

2. Yes, it makes it difficult to read

Anything of substance.

Ignore feature is going to work great.

4. It's Trump

I think. Some of them really expected Trump to open up concentration camps, start deporting Mexicans, etc. My sis for one, Mom is a US citizen, and she sis kept telling mom, Trumps gonna deport you.

Now Trump is for paid family leave, and killed the TPP. These are positions the left has traditionally supported. They can't be on the same side he is.

IMHO, driving em nuts. So yeah, it's gotten weird.

7. I'm wondering how much more weird

it's going to get.

Especially since Trump, who for some reason gave his supporters the idea that ICE would be rounding up immigrants in large masses and shipping them off to some other country is now, last I heard, not exactly going to do that.

Most awesome thing I could imagine right now is to see Trump totally, or partially, back off from a lot of his campaign promises. Probably won't happen, but geez it's so much fun to think about.

5. There is one troll I should ignore but I don't,

so I pay the consequences of occasional hides and even one time out. Oh well.

6. If i ignore everyone whom....

I do not agree with or everyone who in the heat of passion acts like an ass then what is the point of being here at all? I can name several people on here who I think have bat shit crazy views but who on a personal basis are kind decent human beings and who on occasion have either changed my point of view or at the least given me food for thought. I do not like ignore lists. If someone takes the time to answer you thoughtfully with carefully researched historical data or with a thoughtful question then even if you violently disagree with their conclusions ignoring them just limits your world.

I am adult enough to ignore you without a button
I am mature enough to have my mind changed
I am open enough to know no one has all the answers
I am human enough to know we are all flawed
I am human enough to know that most moral outrage is selfish including my own

I am disgusted with people who respond to well thought out arguments with either the words LOL or with trite patronizing phrases (you know who you are!). But even those kinds of people are not worthy of the ignore button since they have proven themselves to be arrogant assholes with nothing to contribute and unworthy of my notice without an electronic button.

Finally you can do what ever makes you comfortable but remember every time you add someone to the ignore list then you are empowering their shitty behavior and limiting your own world.

8. I'm not ignoring

People who I disagree with.

I'm ignoring people who just write trash or are not willing to discuss anything.

It clutters up my feed and diminishes my ability to read actual content.

This includes left and right people.

Ignore allows quality of life.
