Wouldn't it be cool....

if we could add ourselves to someone's ignore list?

Eilonwy's comment about thread moderating got me thinking.

I could add my self to someone else's list. If that person tried to reply in one of my threads or quote me in someone else's thread, a pop up would tell them "This poster doesn't give a shi+ what you think. You can not reply to her or quote her. "

Yeah, maybe something nicer but you get the idea.

Just wishful thinking but, I would most certainly use that feature.

lmfao It would be WONDERFUL. But unfortunately, its not gonna happen. So we have to play nice...well, as nice as we can.
I know I probably made it onto some ignore lists because of that PMing thread.

And that's okay, my ignore list actually came into use the other day. I never thought I'd use it, and always thought it was kinda dumb, but I am finding it works rather well.

I think if I'd been here for a month and been thru that, I'd likely find a new place to post. I've been here 9 years, and the arguments come and go, I do think it's cyclic. But if only after a MONTH? Ugh. I'd leave.

It got put up for sale, someone bought it and closed it. I got banned from another. On another board an administrator abandoned her/his board and all heck broke lose. The theme of that board totally changed and I think it's run by members of the KKK now (it was formerly a general race discussion board). And a few others are just very slow moving.

So I've had my fair share of arguments, discussions, debates, not-down-drag-outs, etc. Adding myself to someone's 'ignore' feature (and they couldn't remove me unless I removed myself) would have done me good.

That would be great idea in real life too. Soon as you saw me this message would pop into your head 'This person is on your ignore lists. She can see you but she can't hear you and you can't hear her. All arguments and discussions are futile. Try back later.'

or something like that.
Ah, I didn't realize you were talking about other boards, too.
