	Why is it impolite to ignore people? And, I think it can show
 a great deal of taste in whose opinions you do not listen to.  I
 reserve the right to not listen to whomsoever I chose (not to listen
 to).  People may have a right to speech, but they certainly do not
 have right to my time.

> As adults you should've learned to respect other peoples opinions

	Not everyones. Not all opinions are equal, despite whatever
 post modernists say. I certainly put more value on some peoples
 opinions than others -- and I have no problem taking technical
 measures to ensure that my time is not wasted byu opinions I find

	Care to tell me why wasting my time would be a good thing? Or
 why wasting other peoples time (since there would come a time where I
 would get irritated enough to comment on that opinion, and the
 resulting flame war would get us nowhere).

	Frankly, if ignoring inane opinions and noisy people and not
 flaming them to crisp is bad behaviour, I have not yet achieved a
 state of nirvana.
