I'd like to add I do not feel it is "childish" at all to have an ignore list. I like that the Sun has it, although I wish there was some way to block someone on my list when that person is quoted by another poster.

This message is hidden because I have everyone on ignore. :)


Gotta love a totally blind moderator. :P

At least no one will claim you are biased.

Say, what a minute. If you have me on ignore, what would be the point of replying to this? Doh! :o

That's one reason why I didn't vote. While I'm too nosy ;) to put posters on ignore, there are quite a (mostly on Nationals/Locals) who would be top candidates.

I don't have anyone on ignore, even those I don't particularly like sometimes have interesting opinions.

However, anyone who spams a board I'm on gets sent to the cornfield. :eek:

If you especially like (or like to argue with) certain posters, you can pull their profile up and two options on the profile will allow you to put them on your buddy list or your ignore list. Buddy lists only work if the poster has not chosen to be "invisible" while online.

Ok, but then what do you do with the Buddy online?

Nothing really. It had more value before we had the little dots next to our names. But you can see at a glance just who on your buddy list is online (again, if they're not on 'invisible mode').

I don't have anyone on ignore because I don't want to miss anyone making a fool of themselves. :D

Excellent... Getting some good controversy here. :D

Btw, I still think ignore lists are a little childish, regardless of how many people here defend their use. I also don't really see the use of buddy lists, either.

Now if you could put a text-based "tag" on your ignore list, but still see the people's posts, then I might use it. The "tag" would be put under the user's name.

So instead of "Member" being under the user's name, you could have something like "Pain in the Butt". I could have a lot of fun with that. :D

It's childish to say it's childish that a poster has no interest in seeing another person's posts.

Well, I think it's childish to say it's childish to say it's childish that a poster has no interest in seeing another person's posts. So there. :P

Again, this is a case of "to each their own". But if someone I'd like to put on my "ignore" list starts attacking me, I'd like to know about it.

Why? :confused:

So I can waste my time defending myself, of course. :P

Actually I think it's useful to know what another poster states, regardless of how you feel about that poster. For example, whenever certain posters say something hypocritical or silly, I might throw in a comment or two just to throw them off balance. :)

In any case, I find it very easy to ignore certain posters. I don't need the "ignore" feature.

I don't have anyone on "Ignore" but don't agree that it's childish to put posters on "Ignore" -- so I didn't vote in the poll.

Same with me. With a certain few posters, as soon as I see their signature name, I reach for the mouse so I can move quickly past their mindless drivel and endless cheerleading...

In another forum where there is no "Ignore" feature, we refer to it as being "scrollworthy." :)

The point of the poll is to determine how many people are on everyone's ignore lists. Not whether or not people think they're "childish". That was just a silly comment I put in to make the poll more fun.
