I just went over to read Shooshie's post at MC and the responses. Interesting example of why political arguments never die <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Right yoyo<br>My complaint is.<br>1) Those politicle threads are taking over the persona of the forum.<br>2) They do get into name calling - which to me is not called for.<br><br>I try to stay away from them but like DaddyMac but I to do get sucked in sometimes.<br><br>
see, the funny thing is that you guys sit back and compain about what you hate while you also open the threads you hate and participate. perhaps you don't realize the power you have, especially here on this forum. let me give you a simple hint on how to avoid the frustration you feel -- from my browser window (see the red text):<br><br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
I think that everyone knew that DaddyMac was pulling us in and we knew he was doing a "made you look."<br>But yes, sooner or later we will get a grinch visitor. You are right, just ignore rather than read and comment.<br><br>
well, i don't enjoy the lurkers or "made you look"-type posts, so i usually avoid them or just don't respond. i think MM participants are pretty clear that this is what they want and they can do as they choose. i try and participate in the threads that are more of what i want from a community. no big deal. works for me. any time you bring together thousands of people (MC) or even hundreds (here???), you are going to have different interests and tastes. guess that's what makes it great, especially as your mood changes from time to time -- you have ready conversation from many.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
