Then STOP reading posts that upset you because they are not windbag posts. YOU are the one that keeps making the stupid comment on short to the point posts, YOU need to let it go.
I make comments that I believe add some value. Don't read them if they annoy you so much you think they are "stupid". And then you start an entire thread trying to justify the virtue of sound bite politics? Really?
This is a discussion board. If you don't want to discuss, get out of the way of those who do.
YOU need to let it go.
