Hello,

 

yeah, that's basically my question up there in the subject line.

 

Thanks!

There's an ignore posts by specific members function, if that is what you mean?  (you can also choose to ignore PMs by a person as well).

imo the "ignore" function is way under-utilized.

I use it a lot, but then I keep "peeking" so it doesn't work out so well ROFL.

Nothing better than using TTB's to examine yourself!

If you ignore someone does that prevent them from seeing your posts?   :)

the ignore-button is a wonderful method, 

 

but when someone on your ignore list chooses to react on a post of yours...

 

I then feel the need to answer...out of politeness

but getting me into a discussion with someone that I'd prefer to ignore.

 

ah well, just like real life

There is only one truth, but it has many manifestations.

The mystery of life is not a problem to solve but a reality to experience.

The ignore function.....a very underrated and underused part of TTB.  B)

No.

 

 

So it isn't like FB ... gnashing of teeth ...

 

but when someone on your ignore list chooses to react on a post of yours...

 

 Then that leaves little option but to rip the guy a new asshole?   :)

Discretion is the better part of valor, and patience is a virtue...

:D

If you have the system configured to e-mail you when someone quotes one of your posts, you still get the notification -- which includes the contents of their reply. It is up to you, then, whether it is worth responding to...

Yes, discretion and patience, I agree.  It's just fun to act tough here instead of reacting in the thread in question.  I sent the guy a nice PM kindly asking him to remove his comment.  I suspect you can also ask a moderator to eliminate a post?

You can report a comment for moderator review but I will say that there is rarely action unless it breaks the rules or trolling like.
