No. of Recommendations: 2

But what I mostly see - even from my favorite posters - is folks rising to the bait of people who've been singing the same song for YEARS. If you read one of their posts, you KNOW what you're going to get; and by responding you're playing right into their hands.

for some of us, it takes two or three posts. <g>

..... actually -- there are crazies on both sides and not-so-crazies on both sides.
a discussion among the latter could be interesting, but it's tricky separating the crazy from the not-so .... and just a few crazies from one side can drive the not-sos of the other side from the board.

which has two bad effects .. the board becomes an echo-chamber , and reinforces the view that the Other Side is "freeze dried & deep fried"

Just. Say. No. It's really not that hard.

yup .... errrr.... "no"
