I have nobody on ignore. But I am pretty selective about what threads I view too. And I don't find many objectionable posts either.

(Of course no one has picked on me yet!)

The side bar advertisements that squeezes the page down by 25%. That's what I dislike the most but I knows it pays the bills. It'd be nice if there was a firefox add on for that. Anyone know one.

BTW, I decided to add another to person to my list. It's not you btw, you're a mod anyways, aren't you?

You can turn off the side bar by clicking on User CP, then on Edit Options on the left column. Scroll down to Miscellaneous Options and click the "off" button under "Turn off Ad on top of the Right Column".

And no, I'm no longer a mod and am completely ignorable.

Thanks!
This is why I don't ignore everyone.

I still have the thin skin I was born with.

But I think as I age, many of my nerves have died off, and I feel less pain.

Blame it on that caption thingy underneath your screen name... "mod" is slang for moderator, isn't it?

So, what's with the "Moderator Emeritus" under you name?

Anytime our mods retire, they gain emeritus status. Note Khan's as well.
Glad to help!

Some of the posters either intentionally or inadvertently gained the status of "Member Emeritus". But of course, by definition, you would not see it under their screen names as they no longer post.

They should be retired before they become moderators. That's what this place is all about.

And here I thought REWahoo was posting under another name as well.
