Mods,

Is there a tool where we can put a poster on ignore?

Sorry if this has been asked before.

yes. Once you log in, go to upper right corner and look for settings. It is there on the left drop down, select edit ignore list and you may add whomever you wish to ignore.

it is a useful tool.

For some reason I thought there was an icon below each poster that gave you an option to ignore but Kindle set me straight. :)

I've been trying for years to figure out how to ignore myself, and eventually, I just got used to me. So you're dead on Hawaii :)

I love when people get busted dealing in hypocrisy and then have to run away. It's classic.

lloyd....do you mind explaining what this means.

The reason why I asked for the ignore button is I let my emotions get the best of me and take following the Steelers way too seriously.

There are comments made by people that I cant let go (even in a public forum). After being a fan since '77 I have come to terms with the fact that the Steelers are a part of my life and its as if someone is talking crap about a family member.

The best thing is to walk away or ignore the originator of the comment before I get booted. That is all.

JJ, I wouldn't worry about it. You have been a pleasant, productive member of this community for several years now. There are some who come here to troll, take pot shots, and abuse members...it's part of the deal with message boards. Don't let their issues and mental illness discourage you from continuing here. As said by another member 95% of the guys here are good people.

JJ, I couldn't agree more. you are one of my favorite posters on this board because you always have something positive to contribute in every one of your posts.

it must have really taken a lot to make you react this way but hang in there my friend, you are definitely one of the good guys. :Cheers

JJ, this wasn't directed at you. I was referring to a poster who constantly thumps his Bible and nearly simultaneously spews mean-spirited insults at others. When asked why he does this, he reverts to, "Oh, you thought I was insulting you? But I was just kidding." And if that happened a few times, so be it; chalk it up to whatever. But after doing this over and over, and called out on it, he then responded with using the "ignore" feature on those who called him out for it. That is what I was referring to: hypocrisy followed by a "take your ball and go home and hide." Your reasons for wanting to employ the ignore feature is one reason why it exists. I find it perfectly legit and understand where you are coming from.

A perfect case of the hypocrisy I referenced.
