They don't agree with anything we say.

Who are you talking about? I can only assume it's the greylings.

Look, shunning works. Ignore them. Do not respond. Use the p-box so you don't get sucked in to begin with.

The answer is very simple, and TMF gives us all the tools. What they're NOT going to do is give us a bouncer to keep the undesirables out.

I've found a number of the discussions here to be quite useful - musings on health insurance and mutual funds, for example. I'd love to see more of those. 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.

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