What is the point of a post like this? When I need to stop reading the forums I just stop reading them, no announcement needed. 👀

I've never had an Ignore list. I don't need no steenkin' button to do my ignoring for me.  

It's not the forum, just a couple of people. Add to that Covid-19 and the political junk and it gets tedious quickly. Especially when at least one seems to turn every single thread they post in into a

Since I've drawn my line in the sand with "12" names, I'm a little surprised a few haven't made it their jobs to increase my list to that point. I'm not kidding (much).

You may be onto something here!

Suppose that, instead of putting the people who annoy you on "ignore," one were to become so utterly annoying oneself that you totally drove them away from the forum! No more pages full of "You have chosen to ignore . . ."! The forum will be yours, free to range over at your leisure!

Hmmm. Maybe I should try being super annoying, as proof of concept! See what happens!

 

 

Oh. Wait . . .

I'm thinking this is how you can easily get to seven pages. Like the troll a few months ago who just spammed the whole forum, using a different name each time? That would fill up a page. Or two? Then the one offs. I have a couple on my list, or Seicher does. Interestingly (?) GiGi's and Seicher's lists are not identical! :) We annoy different people at different times. It is a gift. Then yes, there are people who no longer post.

Personally i rarely have people in the ghost list except those who are very obsessed with their own political views and turn everything to a political talk which is something extremely boring to look at, also a few others who tend to complain about everything. So i have just a few.
(+ apply some html filtering just to keep SL forums nice and tidy on my browser side.)

7 pages though, that is way too many people.

I don't know Adam's reasons, but I'll answer. Just leaving is one way of doing it. But if you've been around for a while and people are used to seeing you post regularly, and then you just stop, some people will worry. In this day of plague that is more true. I mean, for some of us, if we leave there might be one or two who would worry and about a dozen who would cheer. :)  Adam didn't do a 50 page screed on how everything and everyone here sucks. A couple of sentences is about right if one is going to let people know.

 

358 posts and it would be noticed that he left? That's not the reason here.

So he can come back and see all the ignored people replied here and therefore he proves his own point, to himself as we don't care?  

Checked my own ignore list and just weird name spammer bots. There are sometimes 2 people that pop on and off there when it all gets a bit much and I can't be bothered with their drivel affecting my day.  Mostly I just scroll and carry on and leave them to twist themselves up in knots.

thats a bit more than mine...

but tbh, when i started clicking the button frequently some months ago, the pages indeed looked as you described. But seems now those mostly left posting and only come to read. The view on the pages is quite normal again.
A few post mostly in topics i don't read, or rarely anyway,  having Places/Contests/International/Adult sections always closed/hidden, and subsections as Avatar are rarely really interesting when pics aren't a hobby, and seen enough boobs and minimal dressed girls for a gay lifetime.

I only got four at the moment. I usually don't put people on there, if I know they will be gone soon anyway. Like, they make a thread, behave like a butt and are gone once the lock comes down. It isn't worth it to put them on the list just for that.

I tried putting people on ignore once or twice.  But I kept seeing snippets of what they wrote when people quoted them, and then I wanted to see what they'd written so I'd understand what was going on, so I took them off ignore.

I have no willpower.

That's mostly what I end up doing too, and when that starts to happen I take them off Ignore. I have just two people on my ignore list; they are the same two who were the reason behind me taking a break from the forum a couple of months ago. It's a much less stressful place when I don't see them, and I still have no desire to see anything that they may post.

I'm juss too laaaazy to ignore peoples.. It's sooo much less work to just roll my finger over the scroll button while holding a bunch of grapes in my other hand and plucking them with my teeth,  than it is to do all that buncha extra other stuff you have ta do to ignore someone..

I just enjoy my grapes as I roll on by...

Today, I logged on the forums during my tea break at work to see if there was any posts worth reading.

 

I scanned the forums, and I realised my ignore list is 7 pages long.

 

TC guys'n'gals but since I'm reading 97% post of "you have chosen to ignore posts by so and so", I think I'll take a break from the SL forums.  Peace Out.

It's not us, it's you!

Agree with this part, now I can un-ignore them!
