Default anti-running bad strategy for 5/10

Recently at 5/10, I've felt like there is a special neon sign over my avatar, advising everyone to raise me on later streets often because I am running bad. Just in case that sign really exists, what do you think about this strategy:

Every single time I am raised on the turn or river and don't have at least 2 pair, I fold, regardless of the opponent. If this happens 2-3 times at a table, I leave. That way I won't feel the need to call down out of the belief I'm being abused.

Forget whether this is the best strategy. Do you think I could win anything with this approach?

I believe always folding less than 2 pair to anyone would cause you to run worse.

Changing tables on the other hand isn't a bad idea.

Play better; playing worse sounds like a good way to extend a downswing.

I don't want to play better. I just want to slow the bleeding.

Oops. I thought I was asking some kind of theoretical question, but it turns out to be a bad beat thread instead. Sorry about that.

the theoretical question is poorly phrased, throwing away < than 2pr to "any player" when raised isn't great play, and you know it.

Leaving a juicy table because you're afraid of being the mark is also bad play.

Are we all running bad at the moment? you, me, waffle...

And Bubbles. I just hit -300 BBs at Stars last night. (Which is why I moved back to Party, where I immediately booked a 50 BB win over 1k hands.) I hate Stars with a passion. I'm never leaving Party again.

Or how about you make each decision based on a more complex variable...such as using the board/simple hand reading..
