It is frustrating because you can't just brush them off like in most forums because here everyone is given the benefit of the doubt.
    I generally brush them off with the ignore function. It works beautifully.

    I have a few that I have tried that with, but you run into threads where you simply have to listen to them because the contributions from actual posters are responding to said posts and it is best to establish context. Also that if I don't read the posts, then how will I spot the ones breaking forum rules so I can report them? Reporting is unpleasant, but a necessary evil to make sure the forum remains the idealistic bastion it sort of is.

Dude, the average campaign only lasts 5-7 levels from start, what long term are you talking about and since when is anyone concerned over who is out damaging who?

    Yes perception is a useful skill, but lets face it, in 5e everyone can do everything. The skill set(which I am very vocally against) allows anyone to roll perception whether they are proficient or not, usually its only a minor modifier. Its why I have gotten to the point of making DCs higher for non-proficient characters but I am sure most people don't do that.

    So what will a party lose if everyone doesn't take it? Not a whole lot. Someone will take it and there's your scout. Not taking it means the character is simply better at something else maybe that no one else took.
    Well said. Agree with all of that. If people start obsessing about Perception checks etc, just DO something to keep things moving.
