I’m not a fan of censorship.[/quote]
So I suppose when you go to the magazine rack, you feel obliged to buy and read every magazine and newspaper, else you’d be guilty of “censorship.”
Censorship is preventing OTHERS from reading what people write, rather than choosing not to read it myself.
Myself, I’ve found that some people had a proven track record of getting into inane back-and-forths with me which were purely a waste of my time, and had no other posts that I’d ever seen that weren’t a waste of time to read.
I haven’t counted: there are probably about 8 people on my Ignore list. Not more than 10.
Every now and then, in seeing attributions of their posts, I’ll say to myself, “Hey, that was a perfectly decent post, a worthwhile contribution” and will un-Ignore that person. So it’s not necessarily a permanent thing.
And it most certainly is not “censorship.”
