So. I turn off "Off Topic" and "News and Politics" for a while. I've got 13 people on my ignore list. It's Christmas/Family time so folks might be away from their computers. There is the cataclysm on Dec 14th and now a missing 8,254 posts (EE getting benched).

That just about brings my new post count to zero.

I'll tell you what, Bill, I'm a huge fan of the ignore list. I am especially a huge fan of a certain lack of posts. RR is an awesome place to talk about RC helicopters without BS and nonsense.

Isn't that the truth, I was fed up with one liners across many posts.. he does make me laugh..

I had thought the site was going downhill, but glad mark has stepped in.

Joey... I like to think I get along with everyone - or at least try. Putting someone on my ignore list takes effort. If I wake up one day and find 50 people on the ignore list, maybe the problem is me.?.? Maybe I'm just easily irritated.?.?

So let's look at it...

Of the 13 on my list, 7 are already banned (or passed on). That leave 6.

One has nearly 11,000 post of which 7 are on topic.(!) That leaves 5 on my ignore list.

Another has 3,600 post of which 800 are related to model helicopters. That leaves 4 on the list.

Another joined a year ago, has 100ish post and exactly one of them is "on topic". That takes it down to 3 on the list.

Of the remaining 3, one has 250ish post of which exactly two are helicopter related. That leaves 2.

One is Mike Fortin. Need I say more? I'm pretty sure he hasn't lost any sleep over being "ignored" by myself or anyone else. That leaves 1.

The last on my ignore list has over 450 posts and 25 are On Topic.

That leaves zero on my list that aren't banned, dead, or not here to talk about models.

I'm not afraid of a good political discussion. I just don't need it to be the only discussion; however, with each addition to the ignore list, I've notice my new post count coasting to near zero.

It's not how many posts you make that count, but the quality of the post that counts.

RR grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Flying one day at a time;
enjoying one post at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to helis;
taking, as RR did, these sinful trolls
as it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that RR will make all things right
if I surrender to this forum;
that I may be reasonably happy in this forum
and supremely happy with helis
forever in the next.

So be it.

I just clicked "Start Here" and noticed I've ended about 1/2 dozen threads in the last week. I'm going to try and put a positive spin on this and say, summer is here and everyone is out flying.

When I was a child my dad always said, "God gave you two ears and one mouth and he expects you to use them in that proportion." I think he meant you are expected to listen more than you speak... I don't know if I've been doing that very well lately. If I keep this up I'll be on the same list as EE.
