It works, but I can never keep people on ignore for long as I know most of the people will come up with a nugget of wisdom or deal I can use. It is nice as a time out when someone starts harping on you.

hover over target's name, click ignore

nice feature -- cleans up the forum immensely
Yup. 10 times more random videos dumped every morning than a dozen people could possibly watch in a week. It was getting to the point where the place was almost unbearable. A single click and POOF... Just like magic they're all gone.

Changes the complexion of the whole place.

It's a great feature, cleans things up that are not of interest to me. I do sometimes get confused on some threads with conversations that have missing parts - then I click on 'view ignored content' and there it is.

I don't ignore people who rant (even at me). I ignore people who spam the forum and people who show an obvious lack of critical thinking skills. I don't want to sift through the bloviation of fools.

The ignore feature helps me find the valuable information quickly and move on with life.

I agree, mostly everyone here drops a nugget of wisdom every now and then, even if we have to dig through tons of garbage.

Am I the only person that responded to this thread?
You are the only person on this whole thread, that's gotta get boring. You ever leave the house?

Read the thread about a week ago and really didn't give it much thought nor did I have anyone on ignore. Until today.

Earlier I was looking through a thread where I came across a post in which a member had launched into a childlike, insane diatribe against another member for no reason. Clamed the other member ruined the place for him, was basically a nobody and said he told management the score. Now I have no clue if this member has a drug or alcohol problem, has mental health issues or is jealous of the member he was ranting on. For all I know could be all 3. Well anyway I thought about this thread.

Hovered over the members name and clicked ignore. Did the same to the 2 members who had "liked" the childlike diatribe. Then thought of a couple more members who post subject matter that I have no interest in. So I popped them. Went on about my business and then gave it the "look see" test. Checked out the insane diatribe...…….gone. So was the thread it was in. Went right down the line and checked out the other members. Their posts / threads are gone. Really works...……...good.

I can't recommend this enough. The ignore button is there for a reason. Use it...…….it works.

Just me thinking out loud and sharing my thoughts.

Enjoy your day.

Hey Haystack. Who was that Gimmer who moved to Costa Rica from Vegas after the crash of 08?

He must have liked it because he never came back, he had some great posts, way outside the box

This place is like Shawshank, everyone wants out, but we just try to ignore it in our safe space. How fkkin gay

If you break out send us a postcard like Paul Newman did in Cool Hand Luke

There is a guy there now, back and forth who posted on one of the Hurricane threads.
Forget his nic. Less new or less new folks stay around here these days.
Couple of others here already hit it in dif places.
Coupla really good threads those ones here about Thailand.
Your post makes me remember some of the guys on the Bitcoin threads
when it was under 1 and just an idea really.
They ain t here either. :) They probably own the island now.
The Duck wore those guys out. Then he went to his island from his island.
Funny though, the word " island ".....for guys like you and me, Scorp, some others here,
the word can take own another meaning than most would think.
You get a place paid for somehow....you got an island of your own.
F everyone else.
Yeah, I get the taxes thing but thats a local geographical issue.
Ya got a rent payment anywhere.
Only issue is quality vs quantity I guess.

All good ideas the ex pat thing, lots of issues.
Stuff changes so fast lotta those places.
Venezuela.....good idea some years ago. Now ??? Gawd...
Same with Mexico...now theres folks hanging from over passes.
Farmland in buncha places still decent.
But seems to me, if ya aint local....they can show up in the night....
Ohhh wait...they are in SA...you are f d.
Still looking. Few more years to work.
More I go, more I like it here.
Just sayin.
Regards, Keef
