Well hey, it was about time, right...right???
I have been planning to revisit my Ignore-List for a VERY long time now (there WAS a time when I didn't even HAVE an Ignore-List). And today seemed as good a time as any. What I DIDN'T count on was just how many people I had chosen for my...Igoration !!!
And, I will admit, I was a little...ashamed. Yes, ashamed, of how many people I have been ignoring, and for sooo long. After all, some of the people I have been ignoring for sooo long, are not even living in Vineland any longer !!! How can you continue to ignore someone who isn't even around any more???
And, this suprised even me, I realized that some of those I had been ignoring for sooo long, don't even piss me off any more !!! Some even seem quite...NORMAL to me now (well, with the LIKES of some that have turned up here, even those who I thought were insane look positively rational...now) !!!
It just shows to go ya...er...ugh...never mind...It just proves that you CAN be wrong, and very often are about people. People you once thought were crazier'n shit-house rats, turn out to be...well, if not friends, at least no longer to be avoid like a dose of the clap...or ignored!!!
So, I went through my Ignore-List (I have put Ignore-List in caps, just to show how important I take these things...don't ya know...never mind...again), and I'll be damned to hell with a broke back if I didn't UN-ignore damned near everyone on the list. Mind you, some (five or six...or so) are STILL on my Ignore-List...but, considering how long this damned thing has become, especially during the campaign season, that's a pretty good thing, if I do say so myself...and since virtually no one else will, let alone read this article, I might as WELL say so...myself...forget...
Ok, here is my challenge...everyone, go through you own personal Ignore-List, and see how many people you have on your personal Ignore-Lists, who you no longer hate, despise, think are insane or just sooo odious that you cannot bear the thought of them inhabiting the same planet as yourselves (ok, I DO realize there are some who righteously deserve to be on EVERYONE'S Ignore-List...including the scum-sucking individual's OWN Ignore-List).
This maybe the single-most arduous and, in some cases, unpleasant exercise you may undertake today, but hey, if I can do it, so can YOU !!!
So get busy, and let us know how you cme out...OK ???
