Subject: RE: BS: What to do about obnoxious MC members?
I share your resentment towards the high volume of deliberate inanaity and cultivated stupidity which ahs been coloring the Cat of late. I have never seen so much drivel in my life, outside of some grade-school recesses, and it saddens me that a place of good will and tolerance, humor and intelligence, should be so cluttered up with cultivated mindlessness and what I think of as passive aggression. It is not as though counting to 100 is funny, or as though mimicking threads discussing something real by starting threads that are just empty blather about unreality adds anything to the communication.
There's the rub--the desire to communicate is being suborned by those who wish to pour oiut nbon-communication, as if seeking to drown communication because they can't bear the thought of people understanding each other.
It is not my habit to promote intolerance, but I hate to see a beautiful place so littered with trash and the refuse of indifference, uncaring and unthoughtful.
