  • Ignoring users

    Is it possible, when ignoring a user to totally ignore them?
    As it is, you get a box saying "fredie is on your ignore list, do you want to view this post?", or some similar comment.
    Now, if fredie wasn't on my ignore list, I would want to see his posts, wouldn't I? Ergo, the fact he is on my ignore list, means I want to ignore him, not be reminded that he has posted.
    The idea of ignoring a user, to me, would be for it to appear as if they didn't exist on the forum.
    Is this functionality possible?

    I've always found this to be strange.

    How often does curiosity get the better of you and you read the post anyway?

      Quite often, and then realise I should have just stabbed myself in the eye with a rusty fork instead.

        I dont know but the dichotomy of Yours and Barfy avatars yet at the same time both possessing a very similar look of contentment is quite humerous.


        Especially if you scroll up and down flicking between the two.

          A lot, then I realise she still hasn't learnt how to punctuate and I wait in line for the rusty fork.

            Maybe the person who wrote the forum software has a twisted sense of humour? Or sells rusty forks

              Learn, Jim.

              After a while you go to click on the "fuck it, read it anyway - surely their braincells bred by now" button and remember how disappointing the experience was the last 10 times and say instead "you know what, just no. I can live without it".

              Even resist's rash of new threads with appealing titles over the last month or so hasn't tempted me to open the garbage bag and see what's inside.

              It leaves me happy. Click "Read this post"?? Just say NO.

                I just put myself on ignore and it came up with the message;
                We can't help you ignore yourself.

                  It's worse on a smartphone because the ignore text is in a huge font and takes up half the screen. My complaint was met with the unsympathetic comment that my smartphone wasn't smart enough.

                    On Tapatalk it shows their post in the "new threads" section, but totally omits it from the thread, which is awse.

                          You might be surprised, the man has done a lot of growing up in the last year or 2.

                          (I was going to condescendingly call him lad or kid or something, but these days he deserves to be called a man).

                            I think we need an automated response like when a post gets moderated, so you get a PM when someone puts you on their ignore list. I'm just not a serious enough person to use the ignore list.
