True. Most people on the ZBB aren't idiots, and some are actually

misbehave, and they spoil the fun. Imagine you are going to attend
a concert. The music is great, most of the audience is fine - but
there is *one* dude who thinks he had to accompany it with a
jackhammer. You'll want to have your money back. I feel the same
way about the ZBB.
What happened in my head was that when seeing that abominable
"National Holocaust Denial Day" thread was that I pondered the
question "What do I lose when I leave the ZBB?", and I cam to the
conclusion that I'd lose so little that there was no point staying.
I'd not lose nothing, but I'd loses so little that it would not
really matter, but be a fair price for the benefit of no longer
being harrassed with Seraligasms, tasteless jokes, ciphers and
generally rude behaviour.

This is true, and I am actually considering joining in again, but
I'll take a break of a few days. Perhaps next week.

The same with the languages posted there. 99% of the stuff is
as impressing as the Sun is cold and dark :)

Which perhaps tells that it's not a person but a machine :)
