Of course some might say, I don't give a #%&& what other readers think, but I think it is a lie. In my life, I have not met one person of normal capacity, who absolutely did not want to be heard.
You make a good point. My comment, though, was directed at your not wanting to screen out posts from someone whose posts really annoy you, because you said you were worried about how those annoying posts might inform other readers' view of you. I was sort of making fun of that, since I think most of us would be fairly comfortable letting readers make their own judgment based on what we say, regardless of what others say about what we say. But I think I could have skipped my snarky comment, so I owe you an apology.
