    Two. I do it because I've gotten in the habit of reading posts without seeing who wrote them first. Having them on ignore helps make sure I'm not wasting at least that much time on their nonsense.

    What is the point of only listening to the things you believe? It would be quite boring. But I do tire of silly semantics and bad arguments relatively quick sometimes. Others I can put up with it but that isn't always my sentiment. So I don’t have anyone on ignore.
    What about the ones that a) not birthers and don't care b) believe Obama is far too left for comfort c) Think Obama didn't cause it but didn't help it and possibly worsened it d) do think tax cuts bring more revenue e) believe the closest we can get to a free market is the only morally right thing?

    I take people on and off ignore. I never leave anyone on ignore for long...just long enough to give it time for them not to bug me. For instance, Ikari is a great poster. Normally. Sometimes he just devolves into the stark raving mad mess that loses the ability to comprehend anything you say to him. I put him on ignore for a week or so when that happens.

    Goober has stayed on it the longest. I think I kept him there for almost a year. And whenever I take him off, it's not 5 posts of his before I realize why I keep telling myself to just leave him there.

    I don't have any on my ignore list. I do have a couple who totally grate on my nerves to the point that just seeing their name irritates me. Some of them with normal names have definitely got their names crossed of my list of names that might be used on a future child of mine.

    Re: How many people do you have on ignore

    I have a few people on ignore, and it takes a lot for me to want to do that. To qualify for ignore they usually have to demonstrate consistently irrational posts while also baiting, trolling, or flaming, and the final criterion is that despite all rational attempts to debate with them they just keep spouting on with their hackery. In other words, people who end up on my ignore are people who have demonstrated at least 90% of the time that they have nothing to say that is worth reading and they are just a worthless distraction.

    I mostly put them on ignore so that I can save the page views. If their posts don't take up page space then other worthwhile posts will take the space.

    I'm the same. I subscribe to some degree to the saying "He who angers you, conquers you". I don't like me when I'm angry. So I disengage, and if I need a little help doing that, then I use the ignore feature.

    Dude, didn't you get warned for announcing the people on your list?

    Yep,....

    That's why I haven't posted any more of the names that I have added or removed, since.

    Though I did notice others have been mentioning names.

    Well, it is rather strange that you would then invite somebody to do the exact same thing you got spanked for.
