    Today I found the first post that I was not allowed to access. I think it's kind of funny that someone would go to the trouble to prevent a nice guy like me from commenting on his posts. Are there more? I think the forum should let us know when someone puts us on his ignore list.

    The post, or entire thread, may have been deleted.

    You can access any thread whether you are on ignore or not. Unless the thread has been pulled.

    Maybe so but I got a message when I clicked on the post by "9-11 inside job" that I could not access the original post. Maybe I can still comment but it is kind of strange that I can't see the original post.

    Sounds like the post was deleted.

    Someone else placing you on ignore will not prevent you from seeing their posts.

    If you got a message saying that you could not access a thread, it's probably because that thread was trashed.

    Someone placing you on ignore prevents THEM from seeing YOUR posts. It does not affect your ability to see theirs.

    OK I'll figure it out. My second point is that it would be interesting if the forum moderators informed us when we were placed on the dreaded "ignore list" by other members. I'd go further and maybe require a reason for the information bigotry. It might go further in creating bipartisan relationships. Yeah right.

    You can't access the post because you put the poster on your ignore list...

    ... to view the post, go to your ignore list and take them off...

    ... you will then be able to view the post.
    :cool:
