Your last post on the negativity thread was right on. I am not leaving the board but I have stopped posting and responding for the most part. It just gets too damned ugly over daring to have an opinion different from those more aggressive. I now skip over the bickering stuff. It smacks too much of the republicans in the media attacking, attacking, attacking absolutely everything they do not agree with. This kind of behavior is repellant to me no matter where it is coming from. I can find this kind of dysfunction by the bushels in my family. I do not need to participate in it here. I have to say it is surprising that some here have so much energy and such high level brain fucntion. I wish someone could steer these folk to expend what they have toward higher level goals. I do not envy the pain, chaos and damage they create here but I do envy their abilities to function at such high levels. I lost so much of that some time ago. I enjoy your level headed posts and responses. I will miss them.
