Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
I have to agree with Joe that those who are fanatic on the subject of religion make me not want to bother trying to discuss it. Likewise the fanatics on any particular subject. You can't have a decent conversation when one or several crusading whack jobs have their personal volume set to 10 all of the time. Religion, politics, human rights-- it's not worth it to try to be heard in the midst of all the figurative shouting and frantic post-bombing.
One thing though, trying to direct what happens here is futile. Nobody cares, except maybe a couple people who know you. And the things you can't stand are things someone else loves, and they won't back off simply because it bothers you. This is me being cynical. It's so nice to hear from all the people who aren't here, though. That's special.
