Re: Request for Civil and Respectful Conduct
Sometimes I ignore, sometimes, I respond. I tend to agree with Mark that ignoring things that are being said is not always the way to go. I have found some very good discussion points by not ignoring. However, I think that at some point it is best to let it go.
I believe as in most things there is middle ground. But to let people say stuff that simply is ignorant or wrong is not correct. In some cases silence is consent.
In all cases you can respond without personal attacks or stooping down to a low level of conversation.
