    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    I don't put anyone on ignore, it never helps and they still respond to things that I say, it just makes me look bad for not responding to their messages. There are certainly people that I will avoid responding to because I know it's pointless, but it's not nearly as bad here as it is on other forums.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    I put people on ignore, sometimes life's too short to keep reading the same old sh1t . They usually remain on ignore for 2-4 days before I take them off again. It just gives a bit of respite.

    The ones who go on ignore are generally those who just post partisan or crass one-liners. Haven't got a problem with people I constantly disagree with, provided they are making an argument and not just tossing off brainless one-liners or reams of irrelevant, flaming links. The ignore function serves a good purpose, so I use it.

    This reminds me of the old Nilsson song that goes "I'd rather be dead, than be fed".

    I don't need a machine to help me ignore people. That's a skill I don't expect to lose anytime soon.

    I don't put anyone on ignore. There are certain people who's posts make me laugh.

    1 on ignore. 1 that there's no point responding to.

    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    At the moment, I have nobody on ignore but, I might have a candidate. I have been debating a long time and I have limited patience for children or people who cannot comprehend and misrepresent by points after I have pointed it out severely times. It might be my debates with college professors that has limited my patience because I expect a certain level of debate.

    0 on the ignore setting
    probably around 10 or so on faux ignore, but not because I refuse to say anything, its just they are idiotic and not worth the energy.

I guess you could say I have them on faux ignore because I rarely (if ever) respond to them and I don't put too much weight into what they have to say.
    That's almost exactly identical to my situation.

    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    One thing I do have to say on the subject and it's just being perfectly honest. If you say you have been without the sin of bias and never argued from that bias your a bloody liar. We are all guilty. So ignore is hypocritical. Just my opinion.
