  •  Me, too! My patience ran out as well! (0+ / 0-)

    I think it's time for me to tune out of these sites altogether.  We all seem to be speaking past each other and I'm starting to wonder if this site isn't a huge waste of my time.  I'm not being snarky, I'm being serious.  I spend so much time on this site discussing issues and I don't know where it gets me or anyone else.

      I've been here over 4 years.

      If you keep an open mind, even if you're angry, passionate, emotional about any given topic, you will learn.

      You will see every single side of every issue.  I've gone into a thread with an opinion on something, and left it thinking the exact opposite.

      If you use this site as a learning opportunity, even if you go do independent research after reading an argument to your point of view, it is valuable.

      There are brilliant people here, on almost every topic.  And we can learn from them if we let ourselves.

      Yes, we've got our share of jerks as well.  Not trolls, just jerks.  And sometimes they can seem to be in the majority on a given day, at a given time.  But eventually the saner heads come out in force.
