    .

    Two suggestions: Can this site be revised a little so that...

    (1) if you have someone on ignore you don't see their posts when you're quoting someone else? I could have sworn it was like that here for a while when the format changed a while back.

    And/or (2) you can make it so that someone you have on ignore can't see your posts either?

    If I don't want to communicate with someone, it would be nice to be able to end it completely. Having someone continue to post directly to you even though they know you have them on ignore is a little creepy.

    Thanks!

    I don't understand why it is so hard for some posters to just scroll past what they don't want to read.

    Why?

    Just ignore it.

    Because you still have to scroll past their idiotic word walls of crap. It's better when they are just *poof* removed from sight.

    All the people I have on ignore don't show up at all, in thread starts, thread content, nor in quotes. If they're posting to Me, well I find that funny. The frustration of them not getting a reply back must be killing them.

    I like it. hehe

    I'm trying to remember how I would have dealt with this kind of thing back in grade school, but it's been too damn long!

    :laugh:

    Pretty sure knowingly posting to someone you know has you on ignore is against a Rule.

    Which is exactly what happens if one ignores them.

    No one forces us to read posts and if you don't read them, they don't exist. Or at least, that's how it works for me.

    YMMV

    If all the crap posters are on ignore you don't see their posts at all. No weeding through pages of junk posts to get to one you do actually want to read. Less clutter = good.

    I have a bunch of people on ignore who are obsessed with what I post. If I happen to see one of their posts in a quoted response it makes me chuckle.

    Like is too short to waste on mental midgets and consigning them to Cyberia works just fine for me the way it is now.
