    I look forward to every Past Donor to
    become Donor again :blowkiss:


    I have met some "good" friends here.
    Even exchanged gifts.
    I know not to ask for a picture because a mental image is so easily destroyed.
    And it's better not knowing than being swayed by lookism

    Close.
    I had tricolor hair, gratefully not in patches.
    Some Red, mostly Brown and Amber.
    The face hair with more reds and ambers.

    Did you have a clairvoyant experience.
    An idea but, not time referenced? It happens

    The ignore list is the second best feature in the forum (subscriptions being #1).

    But you don’t see any content at all. You don’t see blank posts with “you are ignoring this content.” It’s just gone. I do think that immediately after ignoring a person you’ll see that message. But if you leave your browser and come back, it’s all gone.

    The only downside is some conversations can be confusing. But if I see posts where I can’t understand the flow of the conversation, then I pretty much know they are talking with an ignored party.

    My rule for ignoring members is including people who routinely broad brush whole populations as evil. I just don’t have the patience for it. And you know that any discussion with them is an exercise in futility anyway. After getting rid of the bad apples, I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of intelligent and considerate voices remained. Just getting rid of a few bad actors changes the whole tone of the forum.

    I go back and forth on using ignore. I don't think I've ever had more than six people on it. Currently I have none because I'm in the mood where some people I normally ignored have become amusing. That might change in a few months, I dunno.

    But yeah, I agree - I've never put people on ignore because I disagreed with them, only for being parrots who same the same thing over and over and over and over again. Basically for being boring.

    The ignore feature to me seems little more than an entertainment killer....some of the best laughter I have gotten here is attributed to members that most ignore. The really nasty people I use my brain to ignore.

    Yeah.when I came back, I took everyone off of ignore.

    Many reasons, but I will single out 2 of them.

    1) I was missing too much comic entertainment.

    2) Sitting around all day reporting infractions (just like the RW does (24/7) to me).

    ignore is just a form of ignorance of tolerance
