Yep it happened but a mid-April blizzard is a rarity. To claim they are common is a gross exaggeration. The post on which I was commenting contained several so I addresssd them earlier. To reject exaggeration is not the same thing as rejecting the “slightest criticism.”

No and no.

We get it. You dislike Minnesota. Care to elaborate on other Midwestern states that are either more progressive, or "better", in your opinion? Bonus points if you can include some factual data to go along with your claims for a better midwestern state.

Perfect solution for so-called adults who:

1. Are too sensitive to stomach views they don't agree with and

2. Must curate reality because they lack the self control to ignore people own their own.

Dude I'm a bleeding heart liberal and I've come close to ignoring you once or twice. I think bigotry is still a serious problem in this country but I find your demeanor and "debate" style hard to take. I hope you find peace.

It's one thing to look at my posts and pass over them for whatever reason. It's another to take the step of putting me on an ignore list. I've never felt the need to do that, ever. It's not that serious. Nobody on the internet should bother a person that much.

What difference is it if someone passes by your posts without reading them or uses the forum software to do it for them? I mean really, the end result is the same right? I guess some people lack the self control to refrain from being insulting to those that disagree with them.

And yet you seem pretty bothered by what people post on the internet.
