That's a really stupid part of this website. I want to be able to ignore anyone I want.

C'mon Jeremy - you're a very intellient guy. You have the choice to read or not read anyone's posts you so choose. Unfortunately, I can't put anyone on ignore, but there's really no one here whose posts I wouldn't want to read, even yours. :wink02::flap:

yeah, i found this out when i offered to just put LITP on ingnore while he was a mod.

turns out you cant, and i just had to mentally use my brain to ignore half the crap that spewed from his keyboard (the other half was too good to ignore).

anyways, you know what? it worked. i barely even notice him now. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I had to PM myself to remind myself that I couldn't ignore myself.
While I was at it, I added myself to my buddy list. :crazy01:

Makes sense in this case...since Jeremy clearly knows everything about everything, why would he even need to read other posts? We should just create a "Jeremy Forum" where we can all just enhance ourselves by imbibing on whatever pearls of wisdom he deems to drop on us.

Or, we could just ban him.

Either one works for me.......

Good idea.

There isn't a mod on this forum who I can imagine anyone would want to ignore anyway. They all do a very good job of un-biased work when necessary, and none have outrageous comments.

jeremy, i believe the reason you cannot ignore a mod is so they can still warn you about infractions and so forth.

As far as I am aware, that is the case.

I'm ignoring the next person who posts in this thread!

unless they are already on ignore, in which case, I guess I have already ignored them!


(I give this thread about one more week before it is locked!)

What a complete and utter suck up. Drink the koolaid why don't ya. My gosh Mods are human ya know, they make mistakes , they have opinions that suck and on occasion they make outrageous comments, the biased kind.

Anyhow I'm have trouble ignoring all those words in BOLD print.

Sometimes I like to put everyone on ignore so it feels like I'm talking to myself. That way I can never lose an argument.

PS: Can one of the mods tell me what this thread's about...I can't see what anyone's saying. :flap:

I didn't think you needed to ignore people to win an argument :flap:

Hey, I have been a mod on a couple occasions, so believe me I know they are human. I also know how hard those guys work. What was I sucking up too? I don't gain anything from complementing the moderators, they really do a great job.

As far as the bold goes, yeah it is to get my posts noticed - So what do you plan to do? Ignore me!? How fitting. :wink02:

Of course we make mistakes - as you said, we're only human. This is a very large BB with a myriad of different personalities and viewpoints and there are always going to be disagreements and opinions that differ from the status quo, but I view most of those disagreements (as long as they are done constructively) as healthy discussions which keep the board flourishing. Sure some of our opinions suck, but sometimes, that largely depends on which side of the fence (discussion) you are on. :wink02:

As far as being biased, I don't believe any of us are biased. Speaking for myself - I've infracted members who I have friendships with off the board (as they can well attest to) when they've violated a rule (rules which I feel are very simple and a part of any successful BB). When I see a post that is a bit "over the top", I normally send a PM warning that member of a violation and ask them to edit their post, which most members agree to do. If the hutzpah continues, then I give them the :pin::wink02: I don't play faves and I don't view my Mod position as being above anyone else's position here. I'm just a regular member like everyone else who was asked to help with the board's operation. There is a lot of work involved - more than members can view on the open board, but it is "work" that I believe all 3 of us enjoy or we wouldn't be doing it. :thumbsup:

ShutDown - thank you for the kind comments. :cheers: Now take yourself to the corner and drink that nice, tasty Kool-Aid. :wink02::wink02:
