[DML] email filters

I use Mozilla Thunderbird as my email client and have successfully 
created a filter that removes email addresses and messages from members 
that I would rather not see my inbox get clogged with. It was easy and 
this morning, it removed 4 messages and sent them to "junk." Granted, if 
there is a reply by any other member to one of the threads that contain 
messages from either of the members in my filter, I will still see what 
they initially wrote (if quoted), but it will be much nicer not seeing 
their email addresses in my inbox.

I am baffled at how much time people have on their hands. Yesterday, it 
seemed that every few minutes another message was either started or 
replied to that included links, long, drawn out replies and or annoying 
sarcasm. I have met two of the members that I created a filter for. One 
of them I would be positive I'll never run into again and that is more 
than fine by me, unless he is planning to attend DCS, in which case I 
will be sure to avoid him at all cost. On the other hand, one of them I 
met for the first time  at a DMA event a few years back and he helped me 
with my car. I enjoyed talking with him and appreciated his willingness 
to teach me how to perform the repair and offer advice. I am sure he 
will attend DCS and will say hello when I run into him. Unfortunately, I 
have grown tired of their rhetoric and it is not for me. I'm tired of 
the constant emailing about worthless crap and the obsessiveness with 
what seems like the need for validation. Keep in mind, there are other 
members of the DML that are obsessive and and also feel the need for 
validation, but at times, find their posts worth reading, unless it is 
all about responding critically, sarcastically, etc. to others.

Why do people allow themselves to be consumed by what other people say 
and their criticism? Why this need to defend? Why not just deal with the 
fact that not everyone agrees with everyone, especially when it comes to 
this hobby? The majority of us are educated, grown adults, however an 
outsider would look at the DML and these posts and think this group is a 
bunch of little children with nothing better to do with our time. Other 
than the fact that the performance of our cars is anemic, it's no wonder 
why our cars don't attract many women and barely get respect in the 
automotive community.
