Title: Ignore List
Post by: Granath on August 04, 2017, 05:16:48 PM
Do we have an ignore list function any more? If so, where is it located (maybe a screenshot)? Because I've looked all over the menu system & profile and it doesn't seem to be available any more.

It's gone.

I wonder if people who used it before are grandfathered in with the function.

I never used it, so don't know much about it.

I know some posts can be annoying (I'm mea culpa'ing here), but I try to read as much of a thread that I am interested in as I can...never know what I might pick up. (Yeah, I know, some wasted time too.)

Nope, I can now see the people who were on my ignore list.  If someone annoys you, your own willpower is your ignore list.

I don't really understand why someone would need the ignore function.. if someone is so bad, at that level, if a bunch of people point it out to them they generally simmer down. I also have seen less crazy stuff on this board lately.

I guess it is part of the safe space mentality.  Hide people who irritate you, etc.

I didn't and don't think Granath is that kind of guy because he is pretty articulate in his arguments.

I've only ever blocked one person, and it was the type of person who didn't simmer down. And constantly posted 3 or 4 times in a row without adding much.

Not to name names, but they stopped posting here a little while ago, so the ignore list doesn't really matter to me anymore (and no, I don't mean LarBrd)

Posters would have been doing a disservice to themselves if they had used the ignore function for LarBrd - even though he actively encouraged it. I'm hoping he will make his way out of the woodwork again at some point soon. He has recently been caught as a lurker.

There have definitely been some real winners on this board through the years, but they usually don't last long. It is interesting to click on the profile of those few posters (after you notice a trend) and read through their posts. The vast majority of responses are often short, snarky, narcissistic, and lack any kind-of content. I have never used the ignore list myself - I imagine I only would if I were being actively 'bullied' or something.

I've blocked two.  One of them got me into a battle of ad hominems which earned me a warning from a mod.  The other was sending me down the same path, so I ignored him to, sparing my lesser natures.  One is gone from the board, while the other is still around, although I think the extended cooling off period I gave myself has done the trick.

Well, that is an individual decision as to what and who warrant being ignored. I only used it once but my experience here at cb immediately improved. It was much pleasanter for me.

I do not see why the function was eliminated.

Perhaps someone who knows better than me could create a thread with a poll, just to bring this to the attention of the silent but god-like mods.

Exactly the opposite. I'd like to put a couple of morons on ignore so this space is safer for them. :)

Is this still not an option?  I'm repeatedly baited by specific posters and, heaven forbid I retaliate after receiving months of insults, I'll be banned again.  I'd like to avoid that.

Mods, can we please consider reincorporating this option? I think it would go a long way towards avoiding future conflicts.  And while I'm not pointing fingers, it is extremely frustrating to see forum rules enforced very inconsistently, especially when it is not in your favor.

Its not coming back, for better or for worse.

If people are baiting you, shoot me a PM with a link to the message. Were trying to crack down on bullying just because somebody has a minority viewpoint.

too bad because sometimes I want to put myself on ignore.
