I have never used the "foe" feature and I probably never will. While there are those that seem to find some measure of bliss in having it, I do not
think that is has a place in ATS. While at some point in the historical past it may have been a "cool" feature, but by today's standards, it is a
waste of time to keep up with someone who ticks you off in such a manner that you would consider them an adversary or nemesis.
Anyone who really really ticks me off, I make a note of the person in a notebook I keep. I also record those that have been honest with their remarks
to my postings, helpful in finding something I was looking for, and for those that I have to use some adjective to describe what I think of them.
The idiots, morons, bigots and those that are incapable of comprehension or grasping the essence of a complicated matter that requires one to actually
think, is what really irritates me. If you cant connect the dots when they are staring at you, then you just might be "too" dense to uncover some
conspiracy let alone discuss it.
All this foe and friend listing is not why I come to ATS, but I guess for the young at heart, it is something to have and to use to keep yourself
occupied with useless crap. It may even be a social thing, but I come here for the many conspiratorial subject matters and not to socialize for the
sake of socialization. As such, I could care less about a foe or adversary. I only care about the many ATS postings that keep me busy reading into
the dark of night.
I spend hours reading the many postings and as such, those that stand out with good postings make my day while those that tick me off with their
ignorant remarks get relegated to the ignore category. Knowing who to ignore is just as important as who to bookmark so as to continue reading their
great postings and their fresh remarks and thoughts.
With all this being stated, I don't think the "foe" feature has a future. It hasn't so far and I doubt I will find a need for it anytime in the
near future. That's my two cents on the subject.
Thanks for the posting.
