To preserve my nice low blood pressure and my sanity, I am currently avoiding reading the political threads. So, if it gets out of line and someone is not happy, send me a PM and I may or may not do something about it.

A number of insensitive things have been said. Maybe you should lock the thread?

I even stated "I personally don't think much of Kerry." I'm sure that statement alone could insult a few people.

I try to avoid them too, but sometimes I can't help myself.

I don't have any additional comment to this post. I just liked the idea of seeing these words posted again.

I agree. I've made comments to some threads that keep coming back when I hit "replies to your posts." After I while when the thread degenerates, I'd like to stop getting notifications. I assume I could just bring up Hitler, Nazis and horrible ways to kill people and all of my problems would be resolved by the moderators.

This is precisely why I avoid flame fests, religion and politics. Notice how it's the men sh*t disturbing starting/partaking in these combat type threads?

It's so tempting to jump in sometimes. I think I've shown remarkable restraint
