    I've seen what I thought were some really stupid, thoughtless posts recently, and I've added a couple of extra folks to my "Ignore List."

    If there are people here whose every word pisses you off, you can go here to add their name to your Ignore List.

    Then, when they post something, the post won't show up (although you can open it if you choose to). You may find it as helpful as I do.

    I don't have anyone on ignore!I learned a long time ago, just not to look at certain posts as I know it will raise my blood pressure to near stroke levels.

    That's someplace my learning curve just doesn't wanna go!

    That's why I'm using the Ignore feature ... it REALLY makes life easier when certain people's posts don't even show! It's like looking at them talk with the sound turned down ...

    I don't know, it can be entertaining. Like seeing a freak-show but without reason for moral guilt afterwards.

    LOL, good one Mem and i suggest a re-instated thread for when they have been good.

    To be fair OP, i don't have anyone on ignore people are quite cool on here, but these last couple of weeks i seem to have got irritated by a poster who seems to post Headlines from the News a hell of alot all real depressing news, one after the other non stop , her better than thou attitude doesn't help either.

    Basically, what i am saying is, if she is on my ignore list, will her thread starts (so many) show up in the titles. or not ?.

    ooohh the ignore list - a god-like ability to smite the annoying.

    ML

    okay it's more like banishing someone to the phantom zone. still smiting is a pretty cool idea.

    I wish Ignore Lists actually existed in the physical world. Then I would go to work and not have to see anyone........... And still get paid.

    :argue: ---> :twak: --->:buttkick: ....... But this happens instead. I still win...

    Unfortunately you will still see threads started by a person on your ignore list and you will still see when they've posted to a thread. Only the content of the post will be removed from your view and even that will be shown to you if someone else quotes them.

    And you keep on doing that until one day you wake up and realize that, like me, you have 42 people on there.

    Makes it a helluva lot quicker to get through some threads, though. :rolleyes:

    Ignore is a great function.

    Peace and quiet is often best served by avoiding this place from time to time.

    Ignoring something does not fix it or make it go away sadly enough. I ignore things simply by not responding.

    I've never had anyone on ignore and never will. Everyone has been very kind to me. I have no complaints at all.
