do you ever avoid posts?

Just curious, do you ever avoid posts just because of the person who made them?

  • I avoid answering sometimes, depending on who's asked the question. Some people are obviously just trying to instigate drama. I don't want to be a part of it. But then there aren't many names I recognize on a regular basis enough to know that is what their motive is.

  • I have to admit I definitely do. There are about 2 or 3 posters I really try to avoid because I have either read posts they answered, or read posts they made, and don't see any point in wasting time (mine and theirs) in posting in things they made anymore.

  • No, I am always objective. Would be nice if everyone else was objective too, but no luck on here!

  • Yes, I do. Theres a few who I find quite combative and asking questions just to get a rise out of others (christian and nonchristian), so I dont give them the pleasure. I dont create too many questions and I ve only ever asked ONE in this group. I found most answers to it to be quite pleasant.

  • Yes, I do avoid certain posts at times. Because there are some people who post just to start drama. Personally, I am boycotting those posts, and hope others will too. JMO

  • I also avoid questions that start out bashing Christians.

    How about the ones that start out bashing Wiccans?

  • Yes, there are a few people on here who only post re-heated drivel and are never looking for answers or opinions..... they just want to put their hate in the world. And some I avoid just because I don't feel like I have anything to contribute to the convo.
