Wondering about implementing a way to ignore users who just try to get a rise out of everyone and rarely if ever add anything worthwhile to the thread. Something that allows the individual user to ignore all posts from one user. This way there may be less arguments between users. Have to admit partial credit for this idea comes from timsatt1 and drunk hillbilly couldn't do it all myself.
You should read some of my posts, I think you will find that some of them are very well thought out and actually bring facts to the board!
I am not trying to get a rise out of anyone. Sorry if you disagree with what few posts you have read of mine but I am not the type of person to stroke you or the team when I don't agree with what you are doing or saying. I have been a fan for over 30 years and been to more games than I can count in more city's than I can count so I feel I have earned a right to call myself a fan as well as voice my opinions! Hell, some of them are even positive!!! I'm sorry I am not very social when it comes to all the post whoring but I am working on it. I mostly want to talk football but can get side tracked once in a while. Like now.
You mean just have part of a thread not show or covered with asterisks or something?
That wouldn't work for me because it would ruin the continuity of the thread.
I accidentally responded to what timsatt1 said in a response to his "what is wrong with our board" because he quoted Canada about DrunkHillbilly but glad you pointed them both out.
I hate to start taking sides because I agree with so much of what everyone says, but the rhetoric is making me vomit in my mouth.
I asked him to politely express his point of views (well not politely really) and debate rather than start a war among the fans (mostly DrunkHillbilly right now, but as soon as timsatt1 got here he went after Canada) so blocking those posts won't help the thread, but you could just not read them?
I didn't hear anything luv or bryonc said - I have filtered them out. I only listen to posts from the master:
You can only have one favorite team. There are no "second favorites".
-- Chris, resident of Arrowhead East (St. Louis)
I should add that I haven't coe across anyone on this BB that I would want to put on ignore.
Everything happens for a reason.
And I agree with so much that you say it hurts, it hurts to do it.
It's the way you are so intolerant when others say they are undying fans that won't *****, that is their prerogative and just blow it off and respond with an unemotional response so you don't trigger THEM to make an emotional response.
Can't we all just get along?
I know that if you go to a particular users profile, there IS a way to put them on "ignore". I'm not sure if that would remove that members posts, or what it would do, entirely. But, there is an "ignore" option. I reccomend putting some thought into it though. I have little problem ignoring drunkhillbilly, without that option. (Teasin', hillbilly.) I have always been able to get past my differences with other members. Rather they stay and we choose to disagree, or if they wind-up moving on.
