I'm always late to threads.
Anyway, what mostly everyone here is saying is dead on true.
To be able to learn to read and cope with the opinions of others over taking the easy way of just hitting an ignore button shows personal growth and
I also feel that people take this internet business all too seriously from points to flags to ignoring to making friends to having the most comments
and so on, really what does it all add up to? NOTHING! sure it would seem the people who have been here longer or who have more points are the more
credible of people but the more I read threads the less that seems to ring true, I've seen a number of BS posts posted by people here much longer
then me, I've seen hoax done but "respected" members.
Maybe it all gains you some respect of others or internet props and popularity but if that's one of your concerns and priorities in life consider
yourself lucky that your able to worry about such trivial meaningless things.
It's the INTERNET, who cars who likes or dislikes you, why care to dislike someone else? No one is worth that energy but to just simply ignore every
single person you disagree with is like being a child and giving someone the silent treatment, it's non productive and childish.
I agree that the option is at times good, for those people who seem to target certain types of threads and just bring negativity and nothing
productive and just shoot down the opinions of others on a constant basis for their own ego and entertainment, and then trolls.
Which there aren't many of them considering how large this site it it's surprising how few there are, the Mods do their jobs very well here.
They deserve more credit then they get when you really think about what they do and the self control they have to exhibit. (thanks mods.).
But to not be able to just quickly ignore someone will teach you tolerance which so many people EVERYWHERE seem to lack.
We are here to share our opinions, to gain knowledge, to share our stories and have healthy debates.
Anyone who takes anything too seriously on the internet and lets it truly anger them in real life will probably end up dying of a heart attack or
stroke way before their time.
We can learn something from almost everybody and anybody and once you start shutting people out you are robbing yourself and stunting your own
intelligence and emotions.
You're doing a major dis justice to yourself by doing so.
Also, I never could understand why people make topics almost demanding new features, this is not your site and if you want a site catered to your own
wants and needs, make your own.
Then see how easy or "simple" it is to add features and so forth.
The people who run this site, and others alike have a lot on their plate and are doing us a great justice by making places like this for us.
We need to be a little more grateful and little less "I want I want I want!".
