    I’ve used the ignore button a couple of times in 15 years, but I had decided it just wasn’t worth it. I’ll read, roll my eyes, laugh, and nod. I might agree, I might not, but I’ve tried to avoid certain topics and posters, or posters who are just fan bois of one player and constantly drag down other players.

    I will engage those posters on other topics, if I have something of value to add, or a funny gif. I love humor and use the gifs to lighten it up some. But in the end you gotta do what works for you @erod , but good post.

    Sometimes individuals I don't particularly care for post things I find absurd. Other times they post really great stuff. Ergo, I would never put anyone on ignore. You might be missing out on a great post.

    Second.

    I heartily endorse the *plonk*. Once upon a time on the internet, people used to know that if you block the guys you consider low value or annoying, your life gets better.

    If only people could also just *not read* the threads they don't like.

    I like the feature but what I hate is that often the person you have on ignore insists on continuing to respond, and it is hard always to ignore the post.

    Me neither.

    The ignore button is the internet version of a 5-year old pulling the blankets over their head.

    In the infamous words of Detective Joe Kendall " You can't arrest somebody for being stupid. If that were the case, I'd have to fence of the entire state and place everybody under arrest."

    Ya,I knowo_O


    it's kinda like those who are all brassy,brazen& bold in the "don't need no ignore button ,cuz' my superior casing-liner allows me to ignore them",Sez' they,,,yet, what it clearly illustrates to the entire viewing world is their mile-wide streak of chicken-$*** ,by running away from confronting a cyber encounter of which they'd be readily decapitated in,should they engage:lmao2:

    Preach.

    I was about ready to abandon this forum until I finally started blocking the people that were making this place a chore to visit.

    I would say at times its almost the polar opposite of that.
    Entire threads of the same children over and over calling each other names and having tantrums, when maybe it would make the experience a bit better to filter out that nonsense.
    That's not being a 5 year old, that's being a grown-up
