How about if, when we put someone on ignore, not only can I not see their posts but they cannot see mine?

If you put someone on ignore and they respond to one of your posts,
you will never see it unless someone else quotes their response to you.

I see one guy saying quite often, there goes another log on the fire,
in regards to him putting people on ignore. I still read his posts,
and sometimes put likes on them.

Why should his choices affect what I am allowed to do?

They can see yours, but you can't see theirs.. Unless you both have each other on ignore, in which case neither of you will see the other's posts..lol

What If I put someone on Ignore and then my curiosity about what they might be posting peaks my Interest to the degree that I view their post,I find then that putting them on Ignore Is not true because I'm not really Ignoring them anyway,so why bother?

Yeah, I know, right?
Rickyz is the only one I put on ignore, but I kept on hitting the "view post" and figured, "why bother?"
Hehe

Piques ;) Some people are rather consistently more often than not overly aggressive, critical, presumptive, slanderers, nasty, etc... why subject yourself to such a spirit? Some people may like to exchange barbs with such, but it is certainly not my cup of tea :)

I see your point. But that ignored person did not put you on ignore. So why should he be prevented from reading your posts? If you post something on an Internet message board, it's out there for the world to see. You can't pick and choose who gets to read it. Just sayin.. :)

All they have to do is not sign in to read your posts.

I sometimes try to ignore the wife.

She assures me that's not an option.

You push it too far and you might get banned! (The marital version of banned, that is. lol)

I know of one person with whom I share a mutual ignore...well possibly a couple, but one for sure

if he can, he goes out of his way to dig at me and will even post things from months back if he thinks he can score points

seriously?

I don't read his posts...but did see what he did not long ago because another poster quoted his jibes at me

I didn't answer

ignore is best ignored :p

so...some it seem use ignore to insult and some actually do ignore

pick one :eek:

A lot of the time (I believe) one person puts another on ignore because they just have bad chemistry, and that fosters animosity and arguing here in these pages. Since this is a 2-way street, if I know someone is just going to off on my posts for no other reason than I wrote it, I should be able in the interests of peace say I don't want that person reading my stuff. It keeps them from having that anger response, which really needs to be tamed down here. Like 7 seas exampled and Magenta said, why subject yourself (and others) to such a spirit?

And is it really fair to allow them to continue responding to something I've indicated that I don't want to discuss with them?

Yes seed time it is hard not to peek, isn't it? lol. So maybe the ignore should have an option to just remove all their posts from your feed. Instead of saying 'oh there's something here but you're gonna have to break your will to ignore to see it'. Lead us not into temptation, right ;)?

If you ignore someone, they don't know; If I chose to block you from seeing my posts, of course you would know (response to BillG). And yes preacher I can see yours, but I can't see Tommys. Oops now Tommy knows.

And wife is the very definition of 'one you can't ignore'

I guess I could always just ask someone to put me on ignore, but I doubt Depleted or Roger would honor that request.

Anyway, it was just a thought. If you know someone will instinctively respond aggressively to your thoughts, you should be able to keep them from hearing them. It would help keep the aggression down in these pages and keep such spirits at bay.

No point putting someone on ignore if you're not serious in ignoring them.. And yes it would be good if the one being ignored could not read your posts.. That would make ignoring more effective..
