How many of you "ignore" other members on the GJ?
« on: July 29, 2011, 11:20:22 PM »
NOTE - this thread won't name who I ignore. I don't know exactly who frequents both forums and I don't want to make any enemies/hurt anyone's feelings.

I never had the urge to use the "ignore" function until recently. Two members have been posting nothing but pot-stirring, contradictory, unhelpful BS recently. These aren't new members, either (I don't bother ignoring trolls who are brand new, b/c they're usually gone in no time). These are members with multiple years and many posts under their belts. I think both of my ignored members have been there longer than me.

Long story short: I'm now ignoring two members, and it is such a great function. The few snippets of their posts I've seen quoted by other members were asinine and only reinforced my decision.

So, who else uses the "ignore" function?

I have been sorely tempted on occasion but never actually pulled the trigger.

I no longer visit that cesspool of tool fools but I do use the feature here at GG.  It is a beautiful thing and one that more folks ought to take advantage of no matter what forums them may be active on.  thumbsup2

Never understood the ignore function,  If I don't like what a guy posts I ignore that poster, simple as that

Yes I used that feature when I was a member there. I have never used that feature on any other site. If you want to use the feature here, go into your personal settings it is fairly easy to find the feature.
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

I use the Ignore function on GJ & here.

I would bet heavily that one of my "ignored" GJ posters is one of members ignored by stephen9666.

I had two guys on ignore over there, the one guy who knows everything about everything, and the other guy that must just sits there all day in front of his pc and pops into every thread, no more than 10 words, for no other reason than to stir the pot.

I didnt know we had that feature here, but have had no reason to look for it either.

I didn't know there was an ignore function on this forum. I've really never had an urge to use it on GG.

I'm pretty good at not being bothered by jackasses, but after more than a  year on GJ two members really started grating on me.

I have one person on ignore at GJ I don’t mind what he posts as much as some of the topics he starts, unfortunately the ignore feature does not do that.
The guy would post hypothetical questions that were really out there. Like “how much money would it take for you to break the law?” “Could you live on $100 a month for food?” and other horsecrap like that. I was saddened when he joined here but relived that he has only posted a few times.

I considered using it once, but remembered what my grandpa used to say.  You don't have to hang an idiot, they will do it themselves if you make it possible.  Put a short rope under a tall tree and that idiot will find a way to hang himself.

The idiot got banned shortly thereafter for excess drama and pot stirring.  I've not seen him return to any of the forums I'm on.  I didn't even have to put the rope under the tree!  He found one for himself.

And on the other side of the coin a few that I first perceived as slightly irritating have proven to be solid forum citizens.  I just had to learn more about them through the posts they made.  Mostly the younguns there.
  Indy500 has grown through reading and learning from the rest.  He now knows how to pick his battles and makes fewer but more quality posts.  Kudos kid!  And from my old hometown too.

Since the tool replacement fund has started to run dry, I am going to start selling EYE BLEACH here, and will be posting more, to get more tools! or take tool bribes to not post merk women.

Fortunately  I don't need the feature because nothing much bothers me and what does I will forget about shortly after I hit that  "POST"  button thing that changes the channel. I guess having pre "Old timers" disease can save allot of trouble.

What where we texting about?  scratchhead

I haven't figured out how to use the ignore function, on myself.  I am sure if I asked, there would be a way, but since I am on everyone's ignore list,  none of you will see this. :D

Very true.  And I believe if folks acted stupid here repeatedly, they would be called out and if it persisted, they would not be welcome.  Note, I said repeatedly.  Anyone of us can mess up from time to time.  Have a crap day and someone pushes your button, can happen to anyone.  This is like a neighborhood bar, folks get along, bust on each other, even have heated debates at times, but certain lines are not crossed, at least not repeatedly.  That is the beauty of this site, we for the most part get along quite well, but if we disagree, we don't get disagreeable.
