34. Just myself.


Actually, several. I used to go "Ignore Free," because I was pure of heart, took the high road, and danced like nobody was watching.

But that all changed in early 2017 when a whole phalanx of obsessive primary revisitors started making my blood simmer on a regular basis. So I decided to cave in and start blocking them. (Most of them are also on my jury blacklist.)

What a refreshing change! The difference is a lot like blocking the stupid religious and home shopping channels from my TV service.

I also have quite a few keywords on my Trash Can list, because they signal a discussion that's almost always either a circular firing squad, a bait-and-hide gambit, or some other pointless exercise that I'd prefer to avoid.

And, to complete my true confessions, I've trashed several groups -- one of which is also on my Subscriptions list, I see!

I'm actually a pretty open and agreeable person in real life. But I find online life without DU Road Rage to be much more enjoyable.
