  • Ignoring posts of moderators

    I wonder how difficult it would be to have a 'differential' ignore function so that I could ignore the ordinary posts of some moderators while still being able to see their posts when they are purely posting in their moderator capacity?

    The vast majority of moderators I find reasonable and worthwhile reading (even though I have fundamental disagreements with all of them). There is the odd one, however, whose posts I find disturbing and unhelpful.


    Yes, I know: 'toughen up', 'You could always leave', etc.

    Sorry, pman. The system is set up so that no one can ignore the moderators.

    I don't know if Raphael can change the setting for you or not......

    And I don't want you to leave.

      lol, thanks. I'm not considering it ... today. Just wondering if such a system was possible.

      I tell you what, I'll meet you guys half way: I'll donate to TWeb for the cost of tweaking the system to allow this.

          You have full control of who you ignore. A moderator is not allowed to put anyone on ignore either. I personally ignore posters simply by moving past their posts. You can easily do that for my posts.

              Unfortunately it's a global setting to turn it on and off.

              And while I have no problem with a generally rule abiding member such as yourself choosing to ignore a moderator, it becomes a problem with our "problem children" who we don't want to give that option to as they will find creative ways to use it (eg "I didn't see any warnings because I have all the mods on ignore").

              If it's a real big problem, email one of the Greens or Reds (whoever you're most comfortable talking with) and we will see if we can come up with a resolution.

                  This is about me again, isn't it? And I haven't even been here that much lately.

                    That's all very well for mentally 'strong' people, but for a person suffering from bipolar disorder with depressive episodes it's problematic.

                    Which brings us back to 'Well, you shouldn't come here then.'

                      Thanks for that, it was just a thought.

                          It's always about you.

                          I'm always still in trouble again

                              So when Catholicity says she put me on ignore she's actually lying?
                              "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

                              There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
