    My left shoulder is absolutely killing me. I just patched a crack in the foundation with hydraulic cement and the pain is maddening. Arthritis? Bursitis? Pinched nerve in my neck? IDK, but it's killing me. I wish there was an ignore button I could click to make it disappear for a while.

    There's only one reason for me to ignore someone, and it's a minor nit but it still grinds my gears a bit, and that's the folks that post their recorded tracks in Twanger Central (and all over the guitar web forum landscape) and never provide comments or likes to other people's tracks. No encouragement, no give only take, and no sense of friendliness or community. Just unabashedly dumping tracks to get YouTube and SoundCloud listens. I mostly just use the ignore button to unclutter the forum so that I don't miss posts from actively participating forum members. :)

    you're making to much sense to me , please stop it.
    I always thought that obnoxious was the same as charming
    WHOOPS!:oops:
    I just din' unner stan'. Really , anyway If you send me monthly installments of multi-denominational stacks of real cash , not bit coins or cyber funny money you can buy your way off my ignore list, but once the payments stop it's back on the ignore list. O.K. that seems like a good deal what's more important feeling good about your look good or money?
    Why am I asking? The losers on my ignore list wouldn't get it anyway, DUH!:rolleyes:

    If someone is offended, either something offensive has been said, or the offendee is a breathless twit.

    Figuring out which is the case is typically a waste of time, as the trivial "virtue" of niceness is vastly overrated in any case and is unfortunately replacing more substantial virtues with each passing day.

    The whole world would be better if irritating things were ignored more often, instead of confronted.

    Whoa I wasn't aware of the "ignore" function. Guess I never needed it. People here are generally so much more pleasant than other forums (fora?) it never occurred to me

    It's probably said further down the thread but it seems that it you ignore someone (I have several), they can still see your threads and comment, you just don't see their reply.

    So here's to you, douche bag, who thinks DUI is funny!

    I can't see your pathetic attempt at humour.

    I love your posts @Torren61! And I love your new (old) avatar!! I've never seen a post from you that would offend.

    I am in the camp of @drf64 and others in this thread. I don't have anyone on iggy. I have found all people, including myself, are capable of offensive posts, but not 100% of the time.

    I just checked; nobody is on my ignore list. There was some pest, a few years ago, who wouldn't stop being a loudmouth on many of the threads I was following. I think I put him on ignore. I can't remember who it was, I think he got tossed.

    I'm very curious whose ignore list I'm on. Sometimes it's super interesting to find out someone is disgusted and offended by something I say. I'm not as surprised by it now, as I used to be.

    Back when we were getting hit with a bunch of spam threads I ignored those posters but that’s about it.

    No one really cares what you* think.
    No one really cares what I think.

    Once I figured that out, life got a lot more pleasant.

    Oh, I have PUHLENTY of offensive posts to my credit. But, thank you! I like nearly everyone I haven't put on "ignore", lol. (As you can see, you're not on ignore!)
