To ignore users or not? 20:29 - May 22 with 2616 viewsYeti

In particular the serial moaners, those whose vocabulary is limited to “Evans out” and the Walter Mitty types.

Do regular users have these on your “Ignore list” or keep posts live for entertainment purposes?

There's an odd belief by some that adding people to your ignore list is a sign of 'weakness' which is odd as it dramatically improves the forum to be able to div list the idiots.

The ignore function is for the weak.

So basically I need to toughen up or ship out! It’s going to be harder here than I thought.

The ignore function makes this place much easier to bear. I turned a couple off ignore once, a few weeks ago, in a moment of weakness. Regretted it straight away.

I can't believe the price of Weetabix these days. The protein version is 50p dearer than regular. And don't get me started on Shredded Wheat.

Pros - saves you from being tempted into wasting time engaging with those who want to have the same circular arguments repeating the same old same old that's already been discussed on n threads over n years. Life really is too short. Another pro is that it prevents unwanted people being able to PM you.

Cons - can make threads where other people are having a good debate about other things impossible to read if blocked person is posting much on that. I'm reluctant to ue the function for that reason, but sometimes have 1 or 2 people on for a while, then un-ignore them.

Poll: Wd there be so many posts on pees/poos/urinals etc if we were still tabletoppers

Obviously some try to look daft but fail miserably and will not end up on my ignored user list. I quite like the idea of discussing weetabix, keep up the good work.

I like differing opinions, keeps the mind sharp hopefully...

I tend to switch off when people stereotype, I find this already closes the debate and limits the opportunity to enjoy and learn.

I think it technically makes you a snowflake if you did. You need to stop taking the internet so seriously it was designed for two reasons; to share fun facts and porn photos it was never designed to be serious, just use it as it was designed

I get some of the most enjoyment from the people I wholeheartedly disagree with on here and would never dream of blocking them. However, I understand for others that if it turns into personal abuse, they would most likely want to put such people on the div list.

Yep, I have 2 or 3 on the div list. When I read without logging on I see what they say and it just confirms I made the right choice.

Others may not get wound up, but I know my weakness so choose to take action for my own sake. Does that make me weak? Probably - but hey ho.

My involvement in any discussion immediately invests it with sophistication.

Ask yourself, are you so delicate that you can't cope with reading what the bad man said online?

You have your answer.

Personally, I can't cope.

Really glad I didn’t block anyone, the last two days have been unmissable if tedious at times, reminds me of tha playground sometimes. I do wonder if ME has a legal team scouring the posts, there is some extra income for him lurking here, we really can’t hide behind social media anymore big brother is watching.

I think some of these Walter Mitty types you speak of are just a different type of person/fan who express themselves differently. People do get abit excited and fanciful and there is no harm in that, people seem to zero in on them however and make out they are stupid. I find these people worse than those you speak of sometimes.
