There are all kinds of stupid people that annoy me but what annoys me most is a lazy argument.

I was attracted to this thread by two words. War, and Stupid. I've become ever more impressed with the quality of some of the writing and ideas put forth on ATS. As a result, I myself have volunteered to fight the fight to limit stupid on ATS. How am I doing that?
1) Recognizing that there are different types of stupid, I've detected that I am at times, emotionally stupid. I see a thread that offends me and I want to jump in and sound off and say stupid things. So:
2) I've declared war on my own stupid to force myself to either dodge those threads altogether or to refrain from commenting thereupon for at least an entire day.
Hopefully this will limit my own stupid and make ATS a better place.

As a proofreader, if I were slightly less ethical ... I could so expose so many of our clients.
I think the one that sticks out best in my mind was the one about how they described a client who went on many cruises in her lifetime. -- She apparently pleasured herself on them. Yes, that was the wording they used. We chose to edit that.

Well I've often said Idiocy is the most undertreated mental illness around...
Something even education cannot help.
My only qualm with ATS is the header "Deny Ignorance"...
But chances are if you call someone ignorant your post may be removed...
Maybe I'm ignorant as to why
