"Ignore Post List" - Would You Put Someone In?

Wed Apr 30, 2003 11:08 pm

Imagine a.net profiles had the following option: a list of users whose posts you don't want to read. Every time you read the forums, their posts will either only be shown as existent, or you won't see them at all. That way, the "extreme right-wing ar$eholes" would be able to spare themselves from the "idiotic socialist responses of those liberal morons" and vice versa...  Laugh out loud

I guess that it might save some people from serious anger every day, but it would also prevent some interesting discussions from starting. So considering this, are there users you would or definitely would not include in that kind of list?

Please note that this is not intended to be an offense to anyone, so I'll start right away with some folks I would never or rather not include: 747-451, ADG, Alpha 1, DeltaASA16 and of course a whole lot of people whose posts in the Civil Aviation and Tech/Ops Forums I'll hardly ever be able to compete with.

Cheers!

Well, I argue it's our differences that make life interesting. No one should be banned for their political or social positions or opinions.

No, bad idea. Half the threads would be a collection of unrelated posts (as opposed to the collection of unreasonable posts they are now).

Perhaps some kind of once-a-year/month "shut the f++k up card' you are allowed to throw on someone and delete their posts on a particular thread for no reason.

Quite true, but I'm not talking about bans or such. Just something to prevent you from getting mad about posts on an internet forum.

I would argue that should come from self-control or putting anet in perspective rather than via a form of censorship.

I think it's pretty harsh to say someone never has anything worthwhile to say. I can't imagine deliberately ignoring someone's posts. After all, we're all entitled to speak our minds, no matter how much we may disagree with each other. That's the beauty of the forums.

Cedarjet, I could care less what anyone else says. Say your opinion and you have the right to it. I'll just skip over it if I don't want to read it. On the other hand, this thread was started, not as an idea for site improvement, but as an attack on other members.

So mods, why is Nutsy and several others here allowed to make a personal attack and yet I've had messages deleted for the same thing. Oh that right, I forgot that certain people on this forum have a pass when it comes to following the rules.

Well, that's exactly what that list would facilitate / make unnecessary...

"On the other hand, this thread was started, not as an idea for site improvement, but as an attack on other members."

Was it? "Please note that this is not intended to be an offense to anyone". Nope, it was started to be the expression of a wild idea - nothing I suppose to improve a.net; if that was my point, this thread would be in the site related forum.

B757300, I have no pact with the moderators, but judging from your previous posts, it is easy to understand how they might dislike you. You are a big baby. "Idiot Rats" does not count as an opinion, numbnuts. You are a classic example of the man who cries "fire!" in a crowded theater.

No, I wouldn't want to filter my posts. It's nice to see posts by sheltered neophytes who think they know what they are talking about, lower themselves by name calling or being narrowminded and judgemental (D@vidB, Aloges, Schonerama, 777-236  Insane  Yeah sure).

All kidding aside, blocking posts defeats what a "forum" is all about, differing opinions and points of view.

I sort of agree with the idea, but I know in realism it won't happen most likely. I just have my own informal blacklist right now (just two users on there at present time)...any post with their user name, I don't read....pure and simple.......

I only blacklist users who speak from both mouths, or cannot contribute to a discussion without engaging in personal attacks, and the BL is purely a last resort.

Personally, I like to see the opposing viewpoint in things as well, so most people who can do a constructive discussion/disagreement will NEVER get on the list, regardless of how much I disagree with them......

I would put nobody in an ignore list. Sure, I really don't like sometimes what some people say, but why should I restrict my self to only one point of view?

My policy in life is fairly simple and far from unique: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

If you ignore people who represent things that you oppose, you take the chance of losing sight of how their ideas develop and grow.

Restricting freedom of speech or ignoring an opposing viewpoint, just sends the message underground where it can develop and grow like a festering infection to a point where it is strong enough to overcome you.

Of course we must chose our fights. Simple annoyances that don't affect any element of my life have very little value assigned, but are NEVER ignored.

But hey...that's just me...

That's a very contradicting post there Nutsy.

First, you say that he is a baby, and then you point out the fact that he calls people names.

Then, afterwards, you proceed to call him a name yourself.

So, what makes his posts anymore unjustified than that one that you just posted?

I don't think that there is anyone on this website that I automatically ignore just because of the source. (I certainly don't reply to everything that I read, but that's an entirely different matter). And, I certainly wouldn't create a list to make a statement to that effect. Opposing views should be heard. It helps me formulate my own opinions--think for myself in other words.

However there are few users that I automatically read just because they posted it. It's not because I agree with everything they say--in truth, the only person that I completely agree with in every aspect is myself (and I can change my mind any time I want to), but I find their posts thought-provoking and interesting.

I think we should try to keep things civil. And by "civil" I don't mean that all the members of a.net should be unanimous. But no one is convinced of any point of view by being shouted down or ridiculed. And putting someone on an "Ignore" list wouldn't help matters. Let's go about things more tactfully, eh?

*chuckle*. Funny but they wouldn't work as they're subjective. All to often people attempt to shut up the people they don't agree with rather than answering them or ignoring them.

On the other hand, this thread was started, not as an idea for site improvement, but as an attack on other members.

I fail to see how you get that out of the original message.

So mods, why is Nutsy and several others here allowed to make a personal attack and yet I've had messages deleted for the same thing. Oh that right, I forgot that certain people on this forum have a pass when it comes to following the rules.

Someone needs a hanky...

By the way, this statement is IMO incorrect. I'm sure everyone thinks that there is someone who gets away with stuff that they can't. And I *know* that the moderators are not always consistant but those who *appear* to have a *pass* are generally those who put a little more thought into the wording of their posts. I do, however, believe that there are a minute few members who have CREW beside their names who do not set a good example to the rest of us, but that's simply my *opinion*.

Sadly that is what around a dozen or so members would like to have happen.

Funny thing about that statement is that it was made by one of the members who I feel would like that to happen.  Laugh out loud

Having said all that I do have to say that there are a couple of people in the Aviation_Photography forum who's opinions are almost always negative towards other photographers. I find them very irritating and would probably consider ignoring them. You have to be careful with ignore statements though, once I accidentally ignored everyone in the chat channel .. made for interesting conversation  Laugh out loud

If you can't see the difference between one person calling someone else (justifiably, too) a "baby", and one person calling 50% of the nation "Idiots" and "Rats", then you, sir, are the idiot.

How is it "justifiable" to call him a baby Nutsy, because he has a different opinion than you? He's just expressing his opinion, and he has the right to do that just as much as you do, no matter how extreme and different they seem to you.

That argument right there is very popular among the left, so you just got a taste of your own medicine.

I see the hypocrisy rates rising nutsy.

And yes, there's a difference between what he did and what you did, but trying to use that to justify your own insults to him just proves you to be a hypocrite, and nothing else.
