People You Have Put On Ignore

I've already put someone on ignore! Funnily enough, it was the first person I put on ignore elsewhere.

What are the reasons for you to delete someone?

Instead of using the ignore button, when I see someone I am not going to converse with has replied to me I do not read what they said, I just reply 'seen but not read'.

It's not if they wish to converse with you. If one ignores a person, one shall not see their posts.

My idea behind this thread was for people to post the reasons they ignore other posters.

I mentioned it because those on active-ignore do not seem to believe that someone could resist reading their posts (based on how many times they reply), and they find it quite annoying.
Why ignore when one can annoy?

Well, if you list some of the things that annoy you, maybe the general population shall get the hint.

For instance, there is a guy from near me that constantly moans about people not putting their real location in their profile. Whilst I agree with him, I put him on ignore because I was sick to death of constantly reading his moaning, whining posts. We're Canucks! Just STFU and accept it. That last of his posts I read really got up my nose because the person that had annoyed him had posted a photo that quite clearly showed license plates and other tell-tale signs of his exact location!

I was fucking saddened to be a Canuck at that point.

I put stupid motherfuckers on Ignore. :deal




I can say "motherfucker" here, right?

:brow
Generally speaking, yes.

A post like: "Listen here motherfucker, I know where you live, and I'm on my way to fuck start your bitch's skull while I make you watch." - No, that wouldn't be allowed here.

I put two types of members on ignore. The first is one whose posts are intentionally obnoxious and/or downright mean spirited. The second is one whom we've all encountered in life specifically while in school/college/university. That type is the one who always has their hand raised to answer the teacher whilst trying to come across as the fount of wisdom by answering most if not all posts. There's a distinct line between offering an opinion and being an expert. When it comes to responding to an OP's inquiry, it's quite alright to post about your own experience. It's another thing to respond as if your statement is THE official last word on the issue.

There's one such member at the other site who lurks on the GS forum. He has a heavy "wrist."

Other than that, I tend to scroll past camping and chute lube threads.

I don't know why anyone would want to miss out on the chuckles provided by the ignoranti. I had a few folks on ignore 'over there' for a while, but eventually realized that laughter was the best response.

I find that no response is the best response, and if utilizing Ignore helps, so be it.

Any response let's them know you're paying attention, and only fuels whatever's going on. That includes veiled allusions to what they've said, since that's another obvious way of continuing the kerfuffle. Why waste any more time on it?

I haven't put anyone on ignore yet here, but generally it would be someone who posts ridiculously altered photos or is someone who just tries to start arguments for no reason.
YOU TAKE THAT BACK!

Yup. Sounds like the idiot George from Wyoming. But, I know of whom you speak.
I flamed him on the "other" forum for being a know-it-all dick when I should have PM'd him with my sentiments. That said, I got six PM's from other forum members telling me they agreed with my post. Some people are attention whores, ya know?

It's ok to just say you don't care for someone. I think it's poor form to make a big public deal of it, but even that's probably going to be within the boundaries here as long as it doesn't become an unending, wandering battle in thread after thread.

A check of the mortal combat in the political threads illustrates how bad things can get before they're too bad here. To my knowledge, no moderation has occurred there yet.

Time is the most precious of commodities, and giving mine away to people I don't like doesn't make sense to me, but everyone needs a hobby. The Ignore feature is a good way to move on before letting someone get under your skin.
