"Looking for Attention" posts

Over on the "High FSH Board", do you ever get tired of the posts that are just looking for attention? And people respond, and the person just reposts anyway a bit later, same thing, same issue, ignoring the help already given? And with issues we can't help with anyway? Like religion.

I don't want to respond and put fuel on the fire by giving it attention. Some people write huge responses, every time. I want people to just ignore it and hopefully it will go away. It's supposed to be a support board, not a whine-whine-whine "poor me" board. We all have down days and need help, I support that and want to help, but not every two days for crying out loud! Go over to "The Bump" boards and whine over there. Makes me grumpy. And makes me want to stay off the board.

"Thanks for letting me vent"
Grumpy, the Grinch.
