I'm actually with you in that one, hwangjini. I found myself fairly recently doing some research on this forum type so I could figure out where the ignore option was. My hope was to add an easy opt-out link in my forum signature that would allows folks to ignore me without digging through hard to find settings. It would actually please me quite a bit if the type of folks who feel compelled to say "I wish there was an ignore button" weren't able to read my posts. That would likely minimize a good chunk of the negative behavior on this forum, as it's usually those "I wish there was an ignore button" folks that go out of their way to derail threads I'm a part of. There's a couple problematic folks here, who shall not be named, who can't seem to process my words without declaring I'm a 76ers fan, or Hinkie Binkie, or Nets fan, or "hater", or "troll", or as one person said earlier "clinically insane", or digging up previous out-of-context quotes of mine and using them to rally other users against my current valid opinions. If I'm not that much of a human trigger for those folks and an ignore button would remedy their lack of self control, I'd probably advertise the "LB Ignore Button" at the bottom of every one of my posts. In-fact, I think I was PM'ing tarheel about this other other day in reference to a specific user who shall not be named. I was asking where the ignore button was so I could help said user ignore me. Life here would be so much easier for me if said user was capable of just scrolling past posts I make. I'm here to be a Celtic fan and talk with other Celtic fans about the team, not constantly defend myself while certain individuals put me on blast and troll me in one thread after another. That stuff isn't very fun.
There's views I disagree with on this forum, and it's fun to engage in discussions people about those views. I think that's what makes forums great. Sharing varied opinions. But it seems some folks have a lack of tolerance for people who don't share their views and would rather ignore those views than engage in civil discussion. If anyone finds the ignore option, please let me know so I can help some specific instigators stay away from me.
EDIT: Thank you rondofan1255!
Lol this is hilarious.
I've never been one to hit the ignore/unfriend button or anything. Even with people who I disagree with almost entirely (more on Facebook than on here), I find it better to try and tolerate their posts and use my will to ignore them rather than block them altogether, even though it's extremely difficult at times. Granted, there's been times when I've had to unsubscribe from a person's feed in order to keep me from arguing with them all of the time, but I still have them as a friend.
I am almost certain someone has blocked me on here, though, because I occasionally see a (+1 Hidden) up on threads where it shows who is all is in the thread at that particular time lol I always kind of wonder who it is and what I did to prompt them to ignore me lol
