    If you think that ignore is pointless, let me imbibe you with this:

    On forums with a “Like” button it is to get your entourage on board with the thinking that you are superior to who ever you block.

    Because they don't just start threads. They also reply to your comments in threads. Blocking them means you don't have to screen the replies you read. You don't have to worry about them replying with some jackass comment or whatever the reason. You can't see their replies, period. So no need to screen anything.

    I'm reminded of a comment Gumbo made one day to someone. It's stuck with me ever since, because yeah its true.

    He said "Theres like three people here whose opinion I care about, and you aint any of em". Still cracks me up.

    Just shot beer foam out of my nose, from laughing at this. It burns really, really bad. So I've decided to put you on ignore, at least until the morning.:eek:

    If you let people annoy you, you give away your power to them. That would apply strongly in an online forum where all they are doing is posting words. Don't give them that power.

    I used to think the same thing about how pathetic it is to put someone on ignore but there are some absolute self righteous trolls, plain old fashioned stupid and arsehole lickers that have begged for it.

    I've never put anyone on ignore. I'm not really a fan of censorship.

    I want the full flavour of the forum - good and bad.
