    After six years of being a card-carrying member of Religious Issues, I have finally had to use for the first time the infamous "Ignore List."

    Am I the only one here to use it?


    If no one replies to this thread...





    :crying:
    ...then I guess I will have my answer.

    I did once early in my membership here; then I immediately took the person back off the list. I kind of felt childish using it. If someone says something I don't like, so what? Its a choice to be offended.

    I used it for a poster that seems to always follow me around and snark at me, Feanor. It's funny, thanks to Tapatalk's preview feature which is unaffected by the ignore list, I could still catch the first few words of him doing now and again, but I never had to actually read them. :)

    Well, when a person goes completely personal, and will not stay on topic, there is a reason. They want a reaction. When they don't get it, they try harder. I'm not really sure if posters like that enjoy being insulted back or their own insults more, but they get off on testing the limits of the TOS. So just ignore them, both on the ignore list and actually. Nothing torques off a masochist more than refusing to beat them.

    I don't use ignore list because it's entertaining to see frustrated trolls crap themselves.:supergrin:

    Nope. If I don't like what someone says, I simply move on.

    Unless I feel like arguing:whistling:

    Most times the entertainment value far outweighs the momentary irritation.

    Though I haven't yet received my very own stalker like LawScholar.

    I love the ignore feature. I think the number of "ignores" someone has should be on their profile page.

    To be fair it's my own fault to a degree. I absolutely hate my user name.

    It was innocent when I chose it, I was getting ready for law school and typed it absentmindedly. I never anticipated spending years on the forums or getting so into guns, and never anticipated that my user name would always look a bit elitist. I imagine I get stalked because the dude really doesn't like academic types.

    I've had admins on TFL switch me to LockedBreech, but I don't know any admins here.

    Nah, I don't use the "ignore" function. I understand that having conflicting points of view is half the fun of being part of any forum.

    I don't have enough time to read everything I'd like to on GT. I see the ignore list as a way to save time. But I have a bad habit of clicking view post.

    ... and then you are reminded why you put them on ignore in the first place....

    By the time I'm annoyed by someone enough to block them, some mod has usually already, or is about to ban them.

    Good mods around here.. They even give me free "infraction points". I'm trying to see if I can cash them in at Starbucks... :)

    I don't bother. If someone posts something not worth responding to I don't respond. When one does it enough I note the screen name and just scroll past the majority of their posts.

    I don't do voluntary censorship. I like accurate information and even if someone is stupid it's good to know with some degree of accuracy who is stupid and to what extent.

    That way you can spot them by the little signs they leave behind. :yawn::upeyes::yawn:

    I wouldn't call it censorship more than I would call it keeping one's composure around some a-hole who is monumentally ignorant. This person adds absolutely nothing to these threads except negativity and hatred.

    I must admit the skies are a deeper blue, the birds sing more, and I even looker better in a mirror...:supergrin:
