Not that much of a political animal

I might be (at least) the second person to leave a certain newsgroup until the election happens.

I am peeved as I started a decidedly non-political thread, only to get a big political hook thrown in on a response. Um, if I wanted to """discuss""" (triple scare quotes needed) politics with you lot, I'd be joining in on the existing threads instead of talking about music.

I like politics. I don't like discussing it in that group because people get nuts. Well, some of them tend towards ranting phools anyway, and the election is not bringing out the best in them. I'd rather discuss it on the Ship where there are at least some ground rules.

Other options, of course, are telling the other person off in private or in public.

Not doin' anything for at least twenty-four hours, though.
