For me it just comes down to what I use the site for. I like getting the information from Miles City. Some of the threads have provided great entertainment. I also like to have fun myself.
The political threads are a repetitive rehashing of the same old stuff. I consider myself a conservative but don't apply labels including R, D, or even I. I vote in every election and love the political process and watching election returns. But, the political threads on MC.com long ago lost my attention for several reasons:
-They almost all read the same. Someone comments on the latest political gaffe from a staunch conservative or liberal, usually exhibiting great difficulty in the grammatical process while doing so. Then the same people exclaim over their ignorance and spend some time telling them why they are an idiotic racist pelican beak.
-Then Buck will insert a Buckism, sometimes these are valuable and will get me to check them out, giving some value to the thread.
-Bridgier attacks and enjoys loading his posts with college level vocabulary, again providing occasional interest, but his arguments become, blah, blah, blah...or more appropriately blahbulition, blahtiousness, blahbielligience.
I guess I would put a filter on them if I could which would leave Buck's posts and the latest Bridgier word and blank out the rest.
As Linus Van Pelt so aptly stated, "There are 3 things I have learned to never talk about, religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin".
May the force be with you!
