    Angry Civility

    Sometimes there's not enough of it around here. You know who you are.

    Corona I recently decided to take advantage of the ignore list function. There is an individual who contributes nothing of value to a conversation and only makes crude, crass comments to postings. It seemed easier then trying to forget the comments after reading them.

    Unfortunately, he's on to you, he will just come back under a different name. He has been on here for about 4 years under a number of names and to my knowledge is the only member who was ever banned under one of them. Yes, he is hard to stomach some times and is crude, crass, but he does sometimes offer good insight, you just have to ignore all the other stuff. He also offers some humor on a rare occasion.

    this is too funny I was thinking about doing a similar post but wouldn't have been as nice as you were on it, although I do know about the blocking I have 2 opinions on that one is that I wont let him ruin this forum for me and force me to do that and second is I am actually hoping one day that he will post something that I read that is actually good information.

    I've worked heavy construction for almost 50 years and I have a lot of experience wading through crude and crass. (I usually call it by another name.) If poster I choose to put in the ignore list was the only person offering great information that would be one thing but there are so many people posting things that I consider good information and insights I know I'm not missing a thing.

    Aging issues can bring on personality changes. Feel sorry for his loss. Look at his incomplete sentences to recognize he may be facing challenges that he has no control over.

    And don't forget what your folks said about sticks and stones.

    Yes; thank you. And, I'm going to ignore him anyway.

    You're just as tender as anyone else here, as can be seen by the way you throw a tantrum and resort to childish name-calling any time someone calls you out.

    Actually, it has been stated here that you do occasionally post useful information. This is a courtesy that I would not give you. The title of this thread is not "bad information," the title of this thread is "civility," which you lack.

    The problem is that you usually season your responses with insults and vulgarities which makes any information you post, no matter how correct it is, useless. The grand majority of your postings are simply angry grumblings and snide comments.

    You delight in stirring up the pot. You thrive on conflict. You are a blight on this forum, and it is a shame your ban was ever lifted.
