Taking a break from the DR
- Jun 10, 2008
I am trying to understand the ignore function. So if I ignore a poster he can still see my posts and troll/insult me and then I can’t see it but it’s still public?
The way this is worded, one has to wonder if a companion pet, i think they are called emotional support animals or psychiatric service dogs? May help. Blocking someone on the boards seems like a treatment of a symptom and not the cause. I would have said it: :ignore works so you don't have to read the constant bombardment of nonsense or other attempt to intentionally bother another member who generally minds his own business.The purpose of the ignore button is to eliminate you seeing posts by others who aggravate, anger or trigger you.
I don’t think it really makes much sense. You ignore the person and don’t see it and he goes ahead and attacks you personally. Better would be if your own posts can’t be seen by the troll.Go ahead and try it. You can turn it on or off for anyone except moderators (I think)
So you would want the ignore function to block everybody from seeing a persons' posts?I don’t think it really makes much sense. You ignore the person and don’t see it and he goes ahead and attacks you personally. Better would be if your own posts can’t be seen by the troll.
No only when that person responds to my post. So he can troll me and I don’t see it but everybody else does. What about introducing a function that you can erase your own post so when you are trolled you can backtrack yourself.So you would want the ignore function to block everybody from seeing a persons' posts?
Well we now have 17 posts in a thread dedicated to ignoring an individual. The OP has made reference to egregious insults and constant trolling. That said, we all read the same board and I can't seem to find any of these instances. We all throw the word troll around a bit too much as well. One person's trolling is another's respectful discourse or disagreement with another's opinion or take on said events. Maybe we can all calm down and eat some fruit.Just tell us out loud who the Ay Hole is, I will make sure they go away!
