I'd just like to point out one feature on this board that I think people should make more use of.
If you cannot tolerate someone, you have the option to ignore them, just as you do in adding them to a buddy list, from the User CP, as shown below:
This is the equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and singing "lalalalalalala" when the idiot you have chosen to ignore speaks.
I have editted out my ignore and buddy list which is not for public consumption, but, suffice it to say if you wish not to suffer fools, the ignore list is your friend and you should use it. If you don't the only conclusion I can come to is that you enjoy the conflict and want to perpetuate it, in which case, I have little sympathy when you're (fairly) called to task on it.
