According to one of my distinguished debate opponents, putting someone on Ignore is an act of cowardice. Ultimately, what happens is that one grows more aware of co-dependent, enabling behavior, the need to fix other persons declines somewhat.

Net result: Extremists take over the debate. This is happening in Real Life, and has been increasing over the last forty years.

This form of compulsive behavior ends in the same way that any other addiction does- when the addict hits bottom. This can either be death, or one of the events that requires the stages of grief...
