    Default Ignore Function

    Put me out of my misery! Remind me how the Ignore function works. There's a particular bad-tempered, whining person in here that I desperately need to be rid of.

    I'm betting neighbors of a certain someone wishes they could push a button and he'd disappear as easily.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm putting it to good use now and the air already smells better,

    Actually maturity and common decency. The ignore button is the modern version of sending the individual to the kiddie table.

    I'm forced to see this as it has been quoted. It's none of those things, E_o_C. It's just that you have become unbearably unpleasant.

    Sometimes it's wise to move the kiddie table into a different room so the adults can hold conversations.

    There was a time when I tried to work out why people might want to be argumentative and difficult in a place that is meant to be educational, enjoyable, entertaining and interesting.

    There has been two people that I thought 'this person just needs some understanding, they need a friend', this was a mistake, a huge mistake.

    I now understand that people behave in the way that they do because they want to be difficult and confront others whenever there is an opportunity.

    I owe it to myself to make full and justified use of the Ignore key, it improves the quality of the FPG browsing as there is a certain unmissable pleasure in skimming past a post of an Ignored member which exceeds any benefit that I might obtain from reading it.

    I feel like we probably have a lot of overlap in our political outlook (I'll leave that vague), we share several interests (vintage pens, calligraphy etc.)
    I find you are intelligent and articulate and I even agree with some of the things you say.

    & yet, I find your presence and behavior here almost unbearable. You ruin everything with your cycle of self pity and combativeness.

    As for patience, I am actually quite surprised how much patience people here have shown you.

    IMHO he always was and can't or doesn't care to stop being so. Therefore the Ignore function is the only option for those of us who prefer to not read argumentative, ranting and raving posts from unpleasant people.

    '..............................he always was and can't or doesn't care to stop being so'



    This is the key phrase, there is much evidence of a long term need to be objectionable and argumentative which appears to be accelerating.

    "Kinda pathetic really."

    Those three words sum up your attitude in a nutshell.

    I cannot believe your attitude to those who make FPG a better place.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I am done here, you are not worth the key clicks.

    eta. This post does not make very much sense as a post from Empty_of_Clouds has been deleted. That post was a complete disgrace and trulyt abusive to another FPG member who works hard for the benefit of all on FPG.

    I was thinking this AM about freedom of speech. Of course, it does not apply to forums. It's common for someone who wants to exercise speech freedom to recoil when that same freedom is exercised toward them. I think we need to realize that if we choose to speak our minds, we also have to our words and suffer either the accolades or displeasure from others.

However, to me, that doesn't preclude the fact that on occasion you may have something helpful to add to a conversation, and is why you (and several other members who I find pathologically closed-minded) are not on my Ignore List. In my world information is valuable. Cutting oneself off from the possibility of receiving useful information... not that smart.
    You are so angry that you outed yourself without even being aware that you've done it. Many of us already know it wasn't a newer member. Just a new ID from someone who admits he likes "exploring language and narratives." We all know you were also born a Brit. You've already told us that fact. Some members might believe it's now strange how he has returned to posting while you are sort of "in your self-imposed doghouse."

    Edited to say that Empty_of_Clouds deleted his post after I had quoted it.

    More bullshit. I don't just read threads that I am involved in. I do read other people's stuff. That guy joined this year (end of last year?). I've posted quite a bit this year. You going to go and persecute him now with your delusions? I mentioned the other guy because I noticed that you had a go at him in a similar way that you did and continue to do with me.

    So, two people on the forum were born in the same country. FFS. Stop sniffing the contrails.
