    For those of us who don't look upon DP debates as contact sport, the idea of victory or defeat seems a little silly. As is that adolescent internet concept of pwning. A victory could surely only be called if you completely convinced your debating rival of the rightness of your position and the wrongness of their own. Has that EVER happened here?

    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    None actually Im not too sure how to ignore someone and i dont get too mired into arguemnts with people that they bug me so much. Theres alot of folks i scroll through but its a post to post issue not a personality one. I come on the forums sometimes just casually engaging in the spit-matches, other times I find the opportunity for valuable discussion and turn the rest of my brain on and actually try and discuss. Discussions about Israel are too deeply ingrained in peoples personal realities its impossible to get the fish to see the water, so I don't really try.

    I put everyone that uses a 'really big font' on ignore. I don't want to see that. That's for kids, chalk, and the sidewalk.

    But don't you find that those who claim to 'win' debates are usually those who have been losing it, big time?

    really big font
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    Maybe it's bad form to necro a thread but I felt it might be important to clarify an old and long held position of mine.
    I use the IGNORE list because it allows me to FOCUS more on people who actually want to discuss stuff, people who actually have something to say.
    They don't have to share my political beliefs, they just have to be worth reading and talking to.
    So yes, I do put a fair number of trolls, sock puppets and malcontents on IGNORE because it just becomes tiresome to see a thread get polluted with noise when there are far too many fine people who deserve attention. If the signal to noise ratio gets too high, then rational thought gets drowned out. So for me the IGNORE list is a filter meant for therapeutic use, to refine that which is valuable.

    I recently started to try a new tactic, however.
    If I put one person on IGNORE, I try to go to my IGNORE list and take another person OFF of it.
    I don't want the list to just keep growing and growing, plus I really DO want to see if someone I iggied might have progressed and grown into someone worth listening to, and sometimes it is entirely possible I caught them in a bad period when they were being jerks and maybe now they're more normal again. Maybe they were just having a bad day or a bad week.

    So now, the list I DO have on IGNORE is more of a rotating list, and by taking people OFF of ignore, I can always be sure that I will not find myself in an echo chamber. I enjoy learning from people outside my own ideological values...if they have something to offer which is teachable.

    I'll try to do my best to LEARN.

    That's something I don't think I will ever do.
    Trust me, I have BEEN tempted but I just don't do it, I do NOT "report a post".
    I might put someone on IGNORE if they are a troll but I won't report the post because I figure someone else already has if it's that bad.

    Even if I lose, as in "getting my butt kicked completely" in a thread, I still LEARNED something, right?
    Thus, even if one loses, you still win something.
