| | Just Say No!
I agree with everything all the the people who said NO said, especially seeker5.
And to all the people who argue that it would provide some sort of personal test for people to remain civil and not participate to inflate their ego, I have to bring up the fact that people on these forums are not even managing to control themselves with the current, relatively inconsequential topics!
And to the person who mentioned Ron ... I don't even know who he is and I've never even seen his name, so you can put him in whatever currently-existing category you want--but if you start a political one, how can I avoid knowing he is a political figure, how can I ever hope to avoid seeing the all of the upsetting titles in that category unless I don't go to the forums at all?
For developing people whose only line of defence in the world is to avoid exposure to certain detrimental things, this is exceedingly counter-productive, even regressive for personal development.
And to the person who wrote "Ignorance is bliss"; yes it is. And all of LoA is based on it, all of subjective reality and LoA is based on "if you ignore it, it will go away" -- and so it goes away, for you. And if you think that my knowing how many Palestinians were killed by the Israelis today is going to help the ones who died or prevent more from dying, then you could tell me how, otherwise you can let me stay in my ignorance and withhold the negative judgments.
