    As I was going up the stair
    I met a man who wasn't there.
    He wasn't there again today!
    I wish, I wish he go away.

    You are better off if you reply to yourself to ensure you receive sensible answers

    You have the right to remain silent.

    lololol @ members having 16+ people on ignore (according to the poll)

    No one on ignore right now, but I have done that when I've received weird pm's, because it can prevent that member from pm'ing. So, for that, it's a good thing.

    Great is the power of IGNORE. But you don't have to put someone on ignore to achieve that, you just have to be able to not reply.

    It's funny for most of my time here I've had no one on ignore. A while back I decided to try to make this site more "mainstream" so I put about 10 people on ignore and left the nonsense

    subforums out and set up a "watched forums" list.

    It makes this forum more viewable. I didn't put anyone on ignore because of their language or that kind of thing. There are just some people who never make a reasonable post (it's just not their thing). There are some people who take any subject and make it a 50 page debate between them and one other person.

    So I just eliminated all that. It made this forum a lot more enjoyable and it didn't eliminate anyone who just had an opposing view. It's just eliminated most of the cranks.

    Lol That is true. I’m stronger now.

    This site’s ignore feature is pretty great, I have to say. On some sites, a line will show “you’re ignoring ...” but that doesn’t show here. There’s an option at the bottom of each thread “read ignored content,” or something like that. It’s helpful but meh, I don’t put anyone on ignore, now.

    You say that like it's a bad thing. Would you care to tell us more about why you find such behavior worth silencing?

    No idea of your reading pattern

    I read a lot

    I am also a dummy spitter with a 3 Ping Pong rule. If your replies are not up to my standards, which are somewhat flexible, I give the person warning, why I don't know. But I will request some sort of reasonable response to a question pertaining to the thread

    Fail to suitibly respond, goes on Iggy

    Think have 40? on Iggy. Sure cuts down my reading time

    Read ignored content - might have used once in about 2 years

    If they are on Iggy it's for my good reason. Judging by the response to many of them (some name them in the text of their reply which is obviously outside of the quote region) so I can identify them, I am surprised they have not been Iggied into oblivion

    Edit

    behavior worth silencing

    They are not silenced in the thread except on a individual basis. I guess if 100% of others have on Iggy or banned they would be

    No, I don't care to prolong that topic but I'm not "silencing" them. I'm just not reading it.
