    Unignoring Merton

    Long, long ago, when Merton was new and filled with questions, I took a drastic step of which I'm now slightly ashamed: I added him to my "Ignore" list. For the last couple of weeks, though, I've found myself reading his posts more and more often - I'm even often amused by them!

    Congratulations, MERTON, and welcome back! You're totally off my ignore list. As for the rest of you: don't get cocky!

    Ignore lists are only for those that lack self-control.
    If we learn from our mistakes, I must be a goddamn genius.

    Well, posting 11 posts per day (average) really makes you a creative person. I'm sure Merton really has improved from the early days. Go on, everyone should unignore him!

    Well, I think Merton is cool, even if he called me a troll (and all I did was agree with him).
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    I like Merton, he has a strongly unique perspective.
    School years were the best days of my life. I used to get caned by middle aged women wearing high heels, stocking and glasses. Now I have to pay for it.

    I'm thinking of creating the 1st Church of Merton. All you need to be a member is a lawnmower and some acid.

    I don't have anyone on my Ignore list. I do have a mental 'skip-over-unless-their-post-is-quoted-list.'
