How to use the ignore function

50 posts in this topic

If the forum software would support it, I suggest implementing forced ignores.  

 

There are many posts which consists of people attempting to censor content they don't like or silence posters they don't like.    Since these wannabe censors do not have the wherewithal to simply use the ignore button or they are suffering from the delusion that they are somehow protecting the internet from dangerous ideas,  it would be interesting if the Mods could do it for them.

I don´t like any censureship unless the poster is a spammer, crook or whatever. If the poster breaks German laws - ban the post(er)..ok. Otherwise why get the mods involved in differences of opinion and emotions? And if someone can´t use the ignore function, why is that something the mods should be bothered about?

 

The REAL issue is: balticus is right, IMHO..some posters can´t accept other people´s opinions, stories, lifestyles, posting habits. And I know which ones they are! They are people who would have loved to work for the Stasi or their ultra right equivalents in military dictatorships!

:lol:

Without their oppressive, intolerant, high-horsed  opinions, no dictatorship of Left or Right would survive.

So don't read it.

Exactly!!!

I will now post a picture to demonstrate my independence of those who would want to censure me/ murder me!

After the vet visit today, Roza was checking out if she could go surfing.

 

Ban me, put me on ignore etc!

Why should that worry a grown man?

 I'm only interacting with you because it's Friday and you seem kind of desperate.

 

Think you are doing the ignore thing wrong, El Jeffo. 

 

:lol:

 How to Ignore

 

1. Actually wish to ignore the user you wish to ignore. Wishing to wish you didn't want to see what they have to say will not suffice, unfortunately. It's important to work through any denial in this regard in order for the feature to function properly.

 

2. Adjust your settings to include the user to be ignored on your Ignored User list. If the person is particularly odious and/or aggressive, be sure to ignore their PMs also.

 

3. Scroll past the bit of white space with the tiny text when it appears on your screen and do not bother to read whose post it is you've Chosen to Ignore (assuming you have more than one person on your list, which, let's face it, if you need this tutorial, then you probably have half the active users on iggy). It doesn't matter whose post it is. Scroll past it and enjoy the peace and quiet.

 

4. If you do opt to Show This Post you must understand it as a secret act, the weak, spineless commission of which must be guarded dearly until your natural death, lest you bring shame unto your family and besmirch the name of your dynasty with an irretrievable loss of face. 

 

In other words, if you looky, don't tell no one, geddit? It's between you and your maker. No one else needs or wants to know about your temporary lapse of judgment, overwhelming curiosity in the moment, or plain old denial about wishing to wish you would wish to want to ignore any given user.

 

5. Do not, under any circumstances, publicly post that you have a given member on ignore. Not punishable by death but decidedly indecorous and guaranteed to elicit a response from that user, which is the opposite of your purported aim--minimizing exposure/interaction with that person, and which will inevitably lead to more posts you'll have to "ignore".

 

5a. Same applies to individual comments as well. Posts such as, "ohhh, did TingleTongle1966 write something to or about me, cos if they did, I would be the last to know OR care," are punishable by up to ten years shame on your family. You shouldn't know they posted anything at all (you don't bother reading whose post it is). You damn sure shouldn't assume they wrote anything about you (you flaming narcissist). And you're not allowed to care what they do because they are dead to you now. That's the beauty of Ignore. It's like blotting out their existence but without all the messy pickaxe, dismemberment, interment and going on the lam as a one-armed man of actually having to kill them.

 

6. DO NOT, under any circumstances, post a screen shot of the You Have Chosen To Ignore PigSnot69 message! Ever! Evereverevereverevereverevereverevereverevereverevereverever! Never!

 

7. EVER!!!!!!

 

8. Do not, after posting the screenshot of the post you didn't not read, protest that you can't be accused of engaging the person because you're "not even answering" them. Failure. You have failed. As a man/woman/father/mother/son/daughter/brother/sister/aunt/uncle/niece/nephew/spouse/partner/occasional shag/passing acquaintance/earthling/friend. If you have a pet you have failed them too but purely by Bob's grace they won't know it. Punishment: a lifetime of knowing how badly you have failed, the knowledge that everyone else saw you fail and thought you looked like a twat, shame on your family for all future generations, possible death by embarrassment, likelihood of dedicated, pinned post in metachat by admin to publicly shame you. And five years' bad Chinese takeaway.

Of course it is a hatched job. Nothing more that EU sympathisers and 5th columnists trying to undermine the government.  Same with the bullying accusations. Yawn!

It's "hatchet job". Are you sure you speak English?    I feel obliged to leave this here. Maybe you could find an herbal remedy. Or barring that, a cork.

I'd prefer to see you getting your ass hit by the door on your way out of here, but you do you, man. I'm only interacting with you because it's Friday and you seem kind of desperate.

What was it you were saying about only interacting with me on Fridays, El Jeffo? :D

 

You've not really got the hang of ignoring me, have you! 

 

But I live in hope! 

 

:lol:

Basically, the second when trolls like you turn up and start posting.

*puts HF firmly back on ignore*

 

I don't really think you want to ignore me, Metall.  :wub:

 

I think a big boy told you to do it then ran away and now you look silly and have been found wanting.
