ban\ignore users?

Postby tyrone » Tue Nov 20, 2007 5:03 pm

Is it possible to add this to the board? For example, if I'd like to wipe a certain user or two out of my boarding existence, is that possible?

Each of us would have only a couple of people to talk to. We might as well just close the forums and keep it to PMs.

Mattmon: Check out this article about how messed up the war is.
Undertowmusic: What a racket!

CalendarGirl: Everyone's stupid.
meandthesea: That's old, broseph!

Noah: Dude, remember when we went to that show and Dave said that awesome thing?
zaccus: Wanna make out again?

CuriousOrgans: Check out the song I just recorded while I was drunk on PBR with my lady's underwear on my head.
somebaldguy: Check out the song I just recorded while I was drunk on High Life and banging some chick.

FatalWound: Hello...?

Okay, choose the less offensive response from those below:

A) I thought I already was.

B) I only mentioned people with a sense of humor.

i'm glad you agree with me roy. this would be a terrible idea.

i know some people get annoyed with other people on here, but that's just how life is. i know two people (one of which is me) that if there was a vote to kick them off the island they would've been gone.

we should leave this option out. if someone (like calebpalma the imposter) is completely out of line, ban them. and if they come back with a new s/n, so what? that's the same thing they'll do if you "ignore" them.

i admit a lot of what i'm saying stems from the fact that i know i'll be in most people's top 5 or 3 ban/ignore list, but what is the point? why don't you just ignore them? like, ignore them? like look at what they wrote and ignore it?

if you open the option to completely silence users this will become PMs only. if you hate people on this board and its dynamic, why don't you just stop coming here? i mean, i'd like for you not to. i've heard such great things and mysteries about tyrone since i've been a member here and now he's back and talking about banning/ignoring people?

i mean, that's just not cool. why would you be away for so long just to come back to instate new rules that make the board tolerable for you?

i know we all get agitated at times, but that's part of this great social experience. some people need to lighten up, my self included, and treat people with the respect they give them in real life, but that also plays into all the things that make this board great. why even when i feel like i'm a nerd and need to just drop it, i keep coming back.

i'm not trying to force anyone to do anything here, but i really think that its just a bad idea. like when i first became a member, no one liked me. and few people do now. but i know the few people who are ok with me would've silenced me at the beginning and it would've been over by now.

ok, i'll stop. i just think its very neocon of you mattmon to consider this idea :wink: :wink: 8)

Aww, CO, you are sensitive people... But I'm pretty sure this thread was almost entirely a joke.

yeah it had to be a joke.

but i wouldn't know that because i don't have a sense of humor.

or maybe you're just never funny.

Its not really that big of a deal, its a common board thing actually.
