Thread Name: BS: Why Do People start biased, imflammatory
Subject: RE: BS: Why Do People start biased, imflammatory
Some people who have been part of this Forum for any length of time, gravitate towards reading posts of certain contributors, and bypassing one's posted by those whom for whatever personal reason we choose to ignore, or don't consider credible.
Others, I am sure are open and up for anything. That is their choice. It is afterall an open forum.

My rule of thumb here, (and I can only speak for myself,) is regardless of whether a thread is music related or BS, when I first open it, I quickly scan the down the column to see who the primary contributors of the given thread are, and make an instant determination as to whether or not to explore the thread in more detail and read the posts.

We all formulate opinions about the various personalities that comprise this Forum (whether we want to admit it or not.)

There are obviously those, who I consider credible, regardless of the nature of their posts, and others who I.M.H.O. have demonstrated time and time again, that they are not worthy of my time or energy in reading anything they have to say, let alone dignifying their posts with an response or acknowledgment.
So this is my personal methodology and self imposed form of censorship, and it works just dandy for me. It also saves me time and energy, which can be put to better use in other ways.

I will say that I am in 100% agreement with BBC...and can empathize.
