Being ignored
« on: February 07, 2011, 06:38:20 PM »
What am I doing wrong?  There are several people in this forum whom I really enjoy and I notice they have so many ignores on their profile.  I just checked mine and I have zero, I'm an asshole and deserve the same disrespect as anyone else.     :'(

I tend to speak my mind which is not necessarily always in stride with popular opinion here.  I do so fairly matter of factly and it tends to piss people off.  Story of my life, some people love me and some people hate me.  If you really want to ruffle some feathers just post some really strong religious or political view and you're just bound to get ignored by someone.

I have always found your comments within reason of what we're dealing with.  I don't always agree but I hope everybody doesn't agree with my views.  I'm a newbie in the sense that I only joined this forum recently.  I wish I didn't have the badge that I own of being a LTS, but that's my reality. 

Everybody here adds something to my situation.  I never needed the chaos until recently.

post some really strong religious or political view and you're just bound to get ignored by someone.

The heads who have you on ignore didn't place you there coz you pissed them off with your political (and/or racial) or religious views.  You have been placed there cause these lamers believe that you are part of the evil cabal.

I don't give a damn as far as being ignored goes.  I know who three of my "ignorers" are because they have said it so: Hoover (whom I couldn't care for any less --and who thinks that ignoring people gives him some sort of power), Tommy (whom I didn't dislike, but who has been banned ever since he went off the deep end), and WTFimpoz (another one that I don't particularly dislike, even though he tends to be a bit disrespectful towards LTS members --and who has also been absent for a while).

I have always said it, the ignore function is for delicate pansies and lamers.  If you don't like someone's views or personality you can simply skip their posts and move on.  At any rate, those who supposedly ignore other members tend to peek by either "unignoring" them every once in a while or by reading the forums while not logged in.

I have my own conspiracy theory.  A certain member (or members) out there, who shall remain nameless, sends unsolicited PMs to other members (especially new ones) with a "black list" of who is who around here.  These people who get the PMs turn around and place the others on ignore.  But I am more than likely just being paranoid.

I would suspect that most people who actually use the ignore function probably read the posts anyhow w/o logging on.  As the Reverend puts it quit succinctly "I don't give a damn as far as being ignored goes".  While I do try to be somewhat diplomatic in my posts, I dont expect folks to concur with my views or responses all the time.  

Provocative exchanges will always occur and quite frankly some people just cant handle them.  As long as its not a personal attack (i.e., racist, sexist, or just plain being mean) I like to think any response that may challenge my point of view is welcome.  I am the first to admit when a reality check is needed when a post of mine may be off the mark.  Oh well...doubt I will ever use the 'iggy' button on here.

I may be wrong but I am very sure that one can still read all the threads when one is logged off. The ignore thingie only works when one is logged on. And from what I have read those that claim to have ignored folks are frequently aware of what the "ignoreds" are posting anyway. So, it seems the ignore thing is nothing more than passive-aggressiveness on the part of the "ignorings", methink.

Yer quite right in every respect, Shaunster.  The ignore function is user based, not IP address based.  Once these heads log off they get to see what those whom they despise so much are saying.   I have always found it quite surprising that these peeps go around saying "ah gots u on ignurr, na na na" and yet they are fully aware of what the "ignorees" just stated.  It is quite laughable and childish IMO.


Hopeforacure and Willemina, the two of you are way nice; nobody in this here joint would dare hit that button on you.  It is reserved for us jaded gals (or, as someone once called us, the seven bitter queens).

Well I dunno bout all that, I thought for sure my Bush leaning, pro gun, anti abortion, Israel loving, beef eating posts might have garnered at least 1 ignore.

Apparently you gotta burn down a house around here to get ignored. Or, yes, be one of the "Seven Bitter Queerns."

Poz1970, all you haft do is take a look at your own profile; it is right under the "last active" field.  In your case you don't have anyone ignoring you.

I am fairly pure - only have three people ignoring me -
I think one is tommy - who is no longer around (a casualty of the ban ham)
the other is mecch - who told me in such an oh so delicious way that he was putting me on ignore.

I haven't missed one Atripla dream over any of my ignores -

I have never used the iggy button on anyone - and don't plan to - because even though I may not agree with all opinions or posts of someone - and may not even care for a person's virtual personality - that doesn't mean that he/she may not someday say something that I might find useful.

You are not being paranoid if they really are out to get you. I can think of a couple of members who are capable of doing this.

This thread regarding the "ignored by" counter in members' profiles -- and others like it -- have consistently made the moderators wince, as they often don't end well. I've modified the SMF template to remove this feature. Sorry guys, but this wasn't proving to be one of the more useful SMF upgrades.

THANK YOU TIM,  I really couldn't understand WHY it was there in the 1st place, and it really didn't serve much of a purpose, it only made things WORSE and didn't resolve anything at all, that feature kinda perpetuated very bad behavior in whoever used this feature, I for one, I'm glad it's GONE....

I never understood why it was there in the first place.  Just another attempt to ruin my reputation.

Thank you Tim.  Good decision on your part.

That was actually funny.

Miss P, most all of our reputations have already been ruined in one way or another  ;D

A wise decision I think. My list of ignorants was declining, down from 23 to 17 when last I checked. My reputation for being "a bit of a prick, really" was in jeopardy.

So ta fanx Tim! :)

Just a quick update...

Today's changes to the SMF template code wasn't exactly cut and dry and I ended up removing the ignore function entirely. To make a long story short, the coding for both the ignore function and the "ignored by" profile function are intertwined and I wasn't having much luck separating one from the other. In other words, there's currently no ignore function in the Forums -- those of you who have been keen on using it will now get to see what you've been missing.

We're actually going to be switching to a new server soon, where we'll likely have much more consistent service (and better customer support), over the next few week. In addition, we're going to attempt an upgrade to SMF v. 2.0, which should provide me and the other admins a bit more configuration flexibility without having to screw around with template coding.

Will keep everyone in the loop,

Tim

I thought the ignore option prevented useless animosity and kept dead relationships done and dusted.
As a bonus, doesn't it lighten the load on moderators - less conflict, less to moderate?   Moderators encouraged me to use it and first I hesitated but finally used it and appreciated the safer feeling.   So why is it bad?

You'll just have to tough it out until the upgrade, Heidi.
