    I suppose it comes down to this. You can't change people's behaviour. The more disgust you show, it eggs them on. So the ignore function is the only option.

    Well you guys who would like to see it done better, give the new Structured Debate forum a chance. C_K has guaranteed the rules will be enforced so we just need enough serious members to use it to offset the trolls who are staying just within the rules to avoid infractions but still know how to derail the discussions and run serious members off. But the trolls are few enough in number that they can be put on ignore and we could have some really good discussion there.

    It works just like any other forum but the OP sets the rules and direction for the debate. I like it a lot, but it isn't much fun for me if you guys I like to spar with aren't there. :)

    That's because you must be reading their posts. When I want to ignore someone, I just skip over their posts........doesn't take any time at all.....:)

    I responded to one of your posts, challenged what you said, and you, out of the blue came across as if only people who have been talking to you can respond to your posts.
    You were snarky, and you didn't like it when I gave you snark back. If you are going to post comments that can apply to many, you need to grow a thick skin and accept the consequences.

    Your problem is that you're snobby and don't realize it. Your problem not mine. And like I said, I don't much care who puts me on ignore....but people like you who keep repeating over and over who you've put on ignore are like a drippy faucet.

    I had to ignore Kosh, I couldn't handle the robotic posts on repeat. Only person I've ever ignored on a forum.
