See, that may work for some people, but I haven't done that yet on any of the online communities I have been on.
I tend to be a person, though, that will listen to all sides of a story, whether I agree with it or not - so I will listen to Olbermann and Limbaugh, even though I may be screaming at the radio/TV for some parts of them. I took time to read the Unabomber manifesto, and found that he had some very good points, in amongst the ranting.
Likewise when someone is just being an ass on a forum (and I have seen plenty) I don't stop listening to them - even the asses have one or two nuggets of true wisdom sometimes and I feel that by doing the Internet equivalent of sticking my fingers in my ears and going "la-la-la" I might miss out on something valuable. It doesn't matter to me whether I agree with it or not.
Maybe that's just me, though.
