Gosh, that was very clever, how you noticed that this was aimed at you, and then turned it around and aimed it back at the person who sent it!  Astute.<div><br></div><div>It&#39;s been the topic of much discussion, lately, whether you know what kind of impression you&#39;ve been making.  Clearly you do.  Thank you for clarifying that.</div>

Your post smells like a troll.<br>
<br>
Asking everybody to create personal lists of people in &quot;our community&quot;<br>
that they will either read or consistently ignore seems very<br>
close-minded and childish.  Kinda defeats the purpose of a community,<br>
no? It&#39;s also unfortunate that you feel the need to develop a &quot;personal<br>
coping strategy&quot;.<br>
<br>
Simply put, I think you are &quot;being that guy&quot;.<br>

&gt; Everyone should go watch that, and, as they discuss key problems with<br>
&gt; Poisonous People, ask yourself, &quot;Am I being That Guy?&quot;  If your&#39;e not,<br>
&gt; think of people who are; you&#39;re sure to find a handful of them in the<br>
&gt; projects you&#39;re a part of.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Relatedly, it&#39;s worth mentioning the Five Geek Social Fallacies again:<br>

&gt;<br>
&gt; In particuarly, GSF#1: &quot;Ostracizers are Evil,&quot; is appropriate here.<br>
&gt;   Poisonous people have to either work to get better or move on.  That&#39;s<br>
&gt; that.  We, as a community, need to be better about encouraging this kind<br>
&gt; of healthy reaction, instead of allowing our radical inclusivity to be<br>
&gt; used to allow abusive people to emotionally abuse our community.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; My personal coping strategy: there are a handful of people who, when<br>
&gt; they reply to an email thread, make that thread dead to me.  I&#39;ll read<br>
&gt; further replies from a small handful of people I trust to be really<br>
&gt; awesome, but, otherwise, I just ignore it. There are enough other<br>
&gt; reasonable people in the community; my particular input isn&#39;t unique nor<br>
&gt; necessary.  I encourage everyone else to take a minute and create their<br>
&gt; own list (I&#39;m sure my name will grace a few), and try it for a while.<br>
&gt;   It makes the list a lot less irritating, and might be good for<br>
&gt; universal accord.<br>
