Life is much more pleasant on RunRyder now....

I am not going to call out the guy.. but he would get me worked up almost every day reading his crap... so I finally broke down and ignored him... and viola....it is like a totally different forum now. Happy.. no stress..

Now note that I personally did not really have any run is with this guy..but reading his useless posts and stupid attacks on products and people was pushing my buttons.. so pooof and he is gone...

Bottom line .. Use the ignore feature.. but I would use it carefully...

In life there is no spacebar!

I know how you feel, I used once before myself to keep someone from posting in my thread.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Yeah.....its amazing how your stress level can go from "Code Red" to "sittin on the beach drinkin a Pina Colada"! I just recently had the occasion to use it. Wish I had thought of it sooner. It's amazing how some faceless figure over the internet can get you so worked up (especially when you know if you met them in person, I'm sure their tune would change dramatically).

I don't like the ignore button because not only does it make it to where I won't see what a person has said, it also makes it to where they can not post to a thread that I start. Maybe it would be better with levels of Ignoreness. Even if I don't want to hear what someone has to say, I just don't like taking away their right to say it. Even if it is with my own thread, I feel it is better to let everyone else read it and make their mind up on their own. If they want to block someone then that is fine. I just don't like the notion of controling a thread by taking out the peanut gallery.

I use the ignore button in my head.
The fact that I could post to this thread shows that I'm not on Midwest's ignore list........yet. There is nobody on my ignore list, but there are pleanty here that I ignore.

I almost used it once, but I decided not to.

I prefer to take the bad with the good.

It is just as Willy says, even if many here don't like him too much.

The more sealerman I read, the closer my finger gets to the button.
Have not done it yet though.

...curious

Doesn't ignore and ignorant come from the same root?

Does not listening to others opinions, regardless of how far off they are to your "idealogy", make you a closed minded person?

If we had all the same opinions, would that take away what makes us unique? Other than physical appearance?

If we all flew the same helis...would this forum even exist?
Sure! but it sure would be lamer than lame...hence lemmings.

Is ignoring someone a means of admiting that your buttons can be pushed easier than others?

It's like ignoring the real world out there...no tv,newspaper,media of any kind or interacting with other beings...might as well live in a cave.

Hopefully this "opinion" won't make your ignore list?

Not pushing buttons here...just as my title stated...curious.

PS
Not in defense of Sealermen...but he is just having fun with the opposite view in case some have not figured that one out yet. I read, absorb, post or not and continue to the next one (as this one) that catches my interest.

Compounded word of the day...

Self-discipline.

I do not ignore those with opposing opinions as that is what makes us unique.

I ignore people that consistantly post useless and non contributing comments so as to eliminate the need to wade through the crap to get to the meat of the topic.

If I have to remove a person from my ignore list to get the whole picture, then I leave that person off my list.

I have found that I never seem to miss anything where my ignore list people have posted which means that it is working.

I have little time to read crap.

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

interesting way of thinking. how can you possibly know?

Side note...there are those that can discredit a comment while others try to discredit the commentator...the latter need to be reminded of their proper place once in a while.

I don't mind Sealers opinion. What I do mind is that he seems to go out of his way to be a prick in the way he responds to other peoples posts. But of course, this is just my opinion. Feel free to hold your own.

At least you can depend on Sealer's ability to "turn left" when "driving" in a thread

That's the beauty of it. I don't know, but I never feel like I have missed anything because their contribution was worthless to begin with.

It is like a chapter summary in a book. You will get the point by reading the chapter anyway, why not save time and paper and just read the chapter.

In this case however, the information or comments I saw from those on my ignore list were more like the white space between lines. Rather than having to scroll past the white space in the threads to read thought inducing info, I choose to shorten or eliminate the white space and get right to the next quality contribution.

Makes it possible to read a lot more quality contributions over time. (like the "Hot Girls Thread!") !!

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

I am not ignoring an opposing opinion

Just a troll.. with no opinion.. turning every thread into a war..

anyway.. I understand your view points.. and I only did it to one character on the forum... perhaps I will turn it off so I can see what he is saying..perhaps about me... but it has been soooo nice not to see his dribble.

Agree with you completely. It's like an ugly old fat lady in a short skirt, she can stoop over all she wants but I would rather not be around to look.
