I'm the type of personality that when someone is disrepectful or just plain mean and obnoxious, or has started a fight, I will run to that fight and fight to the bloody end. Now I'm older and life is too short to get into pissing matches.

There was a famous discussion board that the moderator stopped the "pissing matches" by instituting a delay before responses were posted. A cooling-off period.

I often use the P-box to give myself a time-out from annoying posts/posters/threads. A week is usually enough, except for deliberate trolls. After a week of no response, they find better things to do. Often they return to posting posts worthy of my attention.

I'm working for a kinder world/TMF.
