View Full Version : If I ignore you, will you go away?

After a couple years of membership and more than 2000 additional members, I've added people to my "ignore" list for the first time. 2 people made it to the "too much of an arrogant blowhard with absolutely nothing of interest to say" list in one day. Can't decide if I should be depressed about having to do it, or if I'm amazed that it's taken so long.

Either way, I'm going to enjoy the quiet.

I've added quite a few. I imagine that I'm an arrogant blowhard, but I usually have something interesting to say.

What is the result of adding someone to the ignore list? Can you no longer see their posts?

When you add a person to your ignore list, this is what you see:

I'm sure I'm one of them.
I'll bet it's got a lot to do with my hatred of The Eagles and James Taylor. Hey, if you lived in Carolina and had to hear "Carolina on my mind" at EVERY FREAKING WEDDING you ever worked EVER!
-you'd probably hate (the original) J.T. as well.
It's okay, dif strokes 4 difrent fokes
2 each his/her own.
my opinion is only an opinion
I think Lucs is awesome and we need some more females around here. I look forward to all her posts, especially when she's rubbing her butt.

Testing, testing, this thing on?
I haven't used it yet.
This place provides a lot of entertainment and sometimes an sometimes stupid is even more awe inspiring than smart.

Lucetia, I hear ya. Lately some people have just been stirring the poop and not really trying to add anything other than to ask ignorant questions or talk out their butt. Mike Lee usually call them out. LOL I don't have anybody on a block list, YET

That's what you do to get them to ignore you.

After reading Lucritia's posts for a while, I have formulated an opinion of her. If she deems someone deserves ignoring , it good enough for me... As long as I'm not on the list.

I've been a part of this community for something approaching five years. While a lot of the people have come and gone, most of the things that are said stay pretty constant. Not too many things ellicit a response from me strong enough to drive me to figure out how to ignore someone. Actually, I kinda miss getting riled up. I think it's happened once in the last six months. Maybe I have a short memory...

I think it sucks that we have people posting in such a way that it would cause another member to use the ignore feature on them.

What issues are causing this?





BTW, I'm moved this thread to the support forum so we can have a discussion and hopefully get this moving in the right direction.

I've noticed this ocassionally, personal attacks or comments that seem out of character compared to the normal tone taken in most posts here, but which aren't commented upon or deleted. It's a bit like road rage on a forum. 'Forum rage' maybe?

Amazingly enough, I can see all of your replies! Even you, ER! :D

Don't need to raise this to a support level, Dave.

People are going to argue about things, get angry about subjects they have strong feelings about, and generally poke and tweak. Sometimes they go overboard, and that's going to happen. Then there are people who seem to want to start arguments in a misguided attempt to clever.

Can't decide if they're more like bratty children who pick fights, then when someone pokes them in the nose they go crying to Mama, or small yappy dogs trying to pee all over everyone to mark their territory.

Either way, I'm in a W.C. Fields state of mind.

I didn't even know you could ignore people on here. I might do it the opposite way and start adding guys like Rick(s), Jon, Tinh, Jacob, Johnny, etc, etc to my list so I can't read anything of relevance. Maybe then I'll be able to accomplish something on my days off..... :D

If someone is breaking the rules by being crass or abrasive please let me know.

It's funny. I have been involved in many different internet special interest forums for years now (2003ish). I started hanging out on several knife oriented forums within the last couple of years and it's only been on these knife forums (not this one in particular) I have even considered using the ignore feature. I have even ignored a couple of people on another board. Amazing!
