avoid a thread when you know its intent is to start trouble?
Granted some threads start of innocently and go astray, there are some that EVERY person who reads the board regularly KNOWS are meant to start arguments. So, when you know that's the purpose, why not just back out and avoid it?
I'll be first to sign the petition to avoid such threads. Will you join me?
OMG..Simplify..you took the words right out of my mouth. I seriously wonder about the maturity level of many of the users here. Many times I don't even bother to open the threads b/c I can tell it is meant to start trouble. Glad someone else sees the same things as I do. :-)
Isn't there an 'ignore' thing in the personal preferences where one can set a list of people whose posts you won't see? Or did they get rid of that the last time they upgraded the server? The most I read is in the Challenger section, where one wouldn't need the 'ignore' thing much.
