Out of curiousity, how many of you use the ignore feature? To me it seems like a great idea, but in practice I always end up reading the moronic posters anyway because there's nothing like a little righteous rage to make one feel truly alive.

Oh yeah, and theatening to ignore is tacky. *is cooler than you*

It's really not very useful.

Most of the time no one wants to ignore the people they dislike anyway, and if they do they can just skip past their replies when they don't feel like checking them.

No, because most threads end up being quote wars with Vissario and Snowqueene.

I've only ignored someone once. And i don't even remember who that was because it was ages ago.

But no anyways, because I don't see a reason for it. I don't even remember the reason for the last time I did it.

Most ignored user isn't vissario, it's GlobeThrasher, whoever that is.

Quoted from Robert:

Another option is to uncheck "display user info" in your prefs, but that will turn off avatars for everyone.

I've accidentally ignored Zippo before, and for a while I couldn't figure out how to undo it. I've tried ignoring a couple forummers before, but it didn't work out because I kept wondering what was said.

I think I accidentally gave Hoff some kind of karma recently. I don't know though.

And I think ignoring people is the dumbest thing ever. Usually someone will quote something the person says and replies with "now I know why I have you on ignore."

HEY ASSHOLE.

If he's on ignore, you shouldn't be able to see his shit.

I remember when Sandy talked about implementing it I kept arguing about why it was useless and stupid and all that shit, and his response was basically "Yeah, but whats the harm in doing it?" and I said "fair enough" and here we are today.

I've tried to ignore people before but every time I just end up reading their posts every time and eventually taking them off ignore.

I have one person on ignore i think and there are people who when I see their post is the most recent on the index..i'll navigate to the subforum itself and browse other areas because what they have to say doesnt interest me at all. Ignore is ass on this forum as the remainder the ignore feature leaves behind is often tantalizing enough to make me click it anyway.

I tried using ignore on Vissario. When I did nothing made sense as to why you guys were thrashing him. It's like walking in on a conversation and only hearing what was said last.

I think it might be better if ignore worked like this...

If 3 or more people (cannot be the same person obviously) click ignore on a single post, that post (or maybe portion of it) will effectively be deleted.

A message in that post would then say something like "This post has been deleted by popular vote." Who knows, it may lead to more interesting & involved discussions.

I think you overestimate the average INTL visitor, if you think rubbish posts vanish and quality posts remain with this system.
