    First, does the software for this board allow you to find out how many folks have put a given person on their Ignore list...

    And if so, are you willing to disclose that number (no names, just a number) to the person, in a private message, if they asked? I'm certainly curious about it, and I imagine others would be, too. It might be a wake-up call to some; whether or not it would make a difference in their actions is another thing entirely.

    For instance, I'd say "Eric, how many people have DJ Niner on their Ignore list?", and Eric or a mod would PM me and say "Only 250; you're obviously not trying hard enough!". ;f

    Waddaya say? Anyone else up for this?

    I'm pretty sure the answer to question one is no. Even if it were yes, I'm willing to bet Eric's answer to question two would be no.

    Hi folks. This software has no provision to display or disburse info about the ignore system or who is ignoring whom, and even if it did, I wouldn't share that info publicly or privately. Aside from the privacy issues and me wondering what the point of such a request could be, I can see only trouble coming from sharing such info. I'm sorry, but this isn't going to happen...Eric

    I couldn't see mods/admins giving it out, or posting it, but it would be neat if it just gave you a number in your profile, if you're logged in.

    Something like, "You have 'X' members ignoring you," where X is the number. And maybe a personality guide like:

    0 - 1: You seem to be liked, or rarely post -- Keep it up!

    2 - 5: You probably need to think a little more before posting.

    6 - 10: You probably get punched in the mouth a lot during face-to-face conversations.

    11+: You're still here? Please PM a mod/admin and request to be banned immediately.

    OK, bad idea; I just thought it would be interesting, kind of a "How Annoying Am I" reality check.

    Thanks to all for your time.
