Okay, “hate” is a pretty powerful word. I don’t think I really hate anyone on earth. But there’s a fair number that I have no use for, some of them right here on the SD.
I’ve been reading some stuff… and I just wanted to say, in a brand new, neutral thread, the following:
If someone annoys you, REALLY annoys you, your best course of action is to avoid and ignore them. In real life and here. If you have no respect for them or their opinions, do you imagine that engaging them in conversation or debate is going to change that?
On the other hand, I can appreicate the amusment value of bugging people just because. But when you are sincerely lacking in any affection, respect, admiration, interest or even amusement, your best bet is to treat them as though they do not even exist.
Works beautifully for me.
PS: Do not misconstrue this to mean that if I have failed to espond to something you’ve said to me once or twice, that you are invisible to me. Sometimes things just slip through the cracks. There really aren’t many around here I deliberately ignore.
