    Hi,

    This thread is not necessarily about what you might think. How many of us on here have gotten into a heated disagreement with a fellow board member and then put them on ignore only to keep peeking in spite of ourselves and starting the cycle again? Tell me what you think and why?

    It's extremely rarely that I put anyone on ignore, it can make a conversation/thread disjointed and hard to follow, the only time I put someone on ignore is if they're boring my tits off. I can't remember ever getting annoyed with someone on the net, they're strangers so I find it hard to understand how people can get annoyed.

    I haven't on here, but I have in the past. You are right, you keep looking back, but there comes a point where you have to ask who is hurting who. The only way the hate subsides is one person being willing to drop it. You have to be able to say, "I'm putting this on the shelf or in the dust bin and I'm done with it."

    One person in pain is enough. Two is one too many.

    And I love you sister

    I think it's better to just ignore what you don't want to read, rather than having a button do it for you. Frankly, I don't even know what the ignore button does? Does it erase threads started by the person that you put on ignore? or just posts?

    If you ignore someone, you don't get PMs from them and their posts on threads are not visible to you.

    I don't "ignore" people. At the end of the day, if I don't like what they say I can just laugh it off or flame back. It's not something to loose sleep about.

    I tend not to second guess myself. As of now, there are two members here on my ignore list. They earned that distinction only after consistently annoying me with their complete inanity without demonstrating any redeeming intellectual or comic value. I feel no compulsion to "peek" at their further spewings, as I'm fully convinced that no matter how long they're left to bake in the sun, anything coming from these two turds is still bound to stink.

    People warned me about this guy. You can't go thru life having a machine ignore things for you.:redface:

    But good luck with that...and (not that you will see it but)

    Well, Bless Your Heart.

    Guilty as charged. I have done this on a few occassions. What is really annoying is when I have someone on ignore and then someone else PM's me to say, "Wow! Girl I can't believe you let him call you a bitch," or whatever. Then my curiosity gets the best of me and I take them off ignore. :rolleyes: Sometimes I get sucked back into the fray, other times I just grumble to myself and put them back on ignore.

    Thanks for responding everyone. I was just wondering because I happened to read a thread yesterday where that very thing happened. I found it amusing, but I could totally see the natural desire to know how one was being misrepresented. By the way, I dont have anyone on my ignore list. I am my own best ignore function. If someone has let me know that I have offended them, I try to apologize. If it is not accepted, then it is out of my hands. Life is too short and eternity too long....

    I have never put anyone on ignore, either, except mentally if they annoy me, but thats not happened too often. I am pretty hard to annoy/irritate- life is not a dress rehearsal.:tongue:
