@DontTreadOnMe,
Ain't it, though.

Topics too, but mostly for word games and trivia.

I think that it is a handy feaure. Like Rog, I usually put the word games on "ignore". I think that type of thread has a following, and I just happen not to be one of them. Nothing wrong with word games though, if that is your "thing".

I only have 2 members on "ignore". One was somebody with such a chip on his shoulder, that no matter how I tried in the past, I could not help this person to be less hostile.

The other is a member who is such a "johnny one note", that the posts that were written were boringly predictable. BTW, I happen to like this person, but could not deal with the constant pontificating.

i can't do it, i'm a masochist, i had cjhsa on ignore for about a day, but i kept looking at his collapsed posts so i took him off

as for the view, i can't do it for that either, i must have an ocd of some kind, but it makes the screen look uneven

@djjd62,
I find myself doing that too. Makes the function kind of superfluous.

I dont have anyone on ignore. It isent that much trouble to scan all posts and pay attention to the ones that have something of value to add. And I dont think there is a rule that says I have to answer a post that is downright stupid.

I don't have anybody on ignore. Even those who I almost always disagree with, at times, have something intelligent to add.

I vote down topics that I have absolutely no interest in reading. Not many, but some.

Somebody let me know if Dys posts in this thread.

No ignoring for me. You'd miss out on all the idiocy that way.

Haha, I draw strength from it. I love it.

I guess I'm sort of a sadist - I also love that fear smell Law students get right before the exams I run for them. That panic look in their eyes. It makes me want to hunt something with a spear and take a good long time running it down.

I don't put anyone on ignore, but there are several people whom i do ignore. Come on, guys, if you can't ignore them in the good old-fashioned way, how much help is the electronic gimmick gonna be for you? Aren't you ever tempted to look anyway? Occasionally, although very rarely, i start to read the post of someone whom i have chosen to ignore. It immediately becomes obvious to me, and i stop reading the post. I started to read a post by the Possum just the other day, and stopped right away, thought "Hmm, he was gone for a while, and now he's back--so he must not have been banned." Then i commented that since the Possum had shown up, that thread was f*cked, and i left.

It's easy guys, if someone is a shithook, just don't read their posts.

yep. ya did, and it was. and coincidentally, the thing that you mentioned is the only one i've ever put on ignore. just too frakkin' weird, inane and plain creepy for me.

but i'm with you on the rest of it. it's about the same as driving past an accident and trying to not look.

A lot of these guys are like a wreck . . . but i learned a long time ago to keep my eyes on the road.

Keep your eyes on the road
Your hands upon the wheel
Keep your eyes on the road
Your hands upon the wheel
We're goin' to the roadhouse
Gonna have a real . . .
Good time!


(Psst . . . ya think Miss Lettybettygettyhetty is p.o.'ed 'cause i called her a dame?)

@Setanta,
There is nothin' like a dame,
Nothin' in the world,
There is nothin' you can name
That is anythin' like a dame!

Dame Letty here with a wonderful song that should NOT be ignored.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5aQPdgjtn8&feature=related

Lyrics.

The Happy Wanderer


I love to go a-wandering,
Along the mountain track,
And as I go, I love to sing,
My knapsack on my back.
Chorus:
Val-deri,Val-dera,
Val-deri,
Val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Val-deri,Val-dera.
My knapsack on my back.

I love to wander by the stream
That dances in the sun,
So joyously it calls to me,
"Come! Join my happy song!"

I wave my hat to all I meet,
And they wave back to me,
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet
From ev'ry green wood tree.

High overhead, the skylarks wing,
They never rest at home
But just like me, they love to sing,
As o'er the world we roam.

Oh, may I go a-wandering
Until the day I die!
Oh, may I always laugh and sing,
Beneath God's clear blue sky!
