But- if everyone ignores him.
.dev.lqd has the answer you are really looking for. You have choices. one is to use your site options and ignore all posts by anyone whose opinions you disagree with. you will never have to waste your time with their posts again. another is to simply notice when they are the ones who start threads and don't open those threads.
the truth is that if you want to take someone's power away from them then you act as if they do not exist.
someone who knows the truth has no need to defend it to anyone. the proof is in the knowing. and when you let the flamers get you upset, you have given your personal power over to them. booting them out isn't winning. it's admitting they have more power than you and so you must remove their influence. censorship is an exercise in fear!!
Are You Afraid of Them???
i hope not. i hope we all have more personal strength than that. i hope we all believe in ourselves more than we believe that they are a threat.
in the end, walk with your head held high and just ignore the rantings of flamers. they will then go away on their own. they only take your power if you give it to them.
