I've been wondering about this for a while now. I have 15 people on my "ignore" list. These folks make it there in one of two ways: repeatedly starting new threads that are quoted/linked news articles along with complaints about how awful something is, or writing something that I believe to be so remarkably stupid or inaccurate. The former I add to reduce my blood pressure; I add the latter to protect myself in case they later write something that sounds plausible but really shouldn't be trusted.

So how many people do you have on your ignore list? (To find out, you can go to your profile via "Portal" / "User Control Panel" / "Edit Ignore List")

18

I tend to ignore anyone who makes me want to smack them with a clue-by-4.
 
I see that there is a post, I can't see whose name is next to the post. What's going on?
 
You don't have the option for me....

I don't have anyone on an ignore list.... but I don't read 'everything' either... I filter as I go... and don't go into threads that do not interest me...

SO, what should I vote....

(of course.. this assumes I am NOT on your ignore list :D )
 
I'm pretty certain there was a poll like this in the last year. I'm not saying this to castigate the OP (though I do wish people would search first), but since the OP was wondering about the numbers, the info is already out there (and some people may not bother to vote again).
 
Ditto what Texas Proud said. I filter threads that don't interest me and some posters too.
 
So far, I haven't put anyone on "ignore", ever. I consider their posts to be like the storm debris around here after Hurricane Katrina. You start to ignore it/them, after a while. You know the problem is there, but you push it to the background.

Edited because I was too specific about individuals. I've had a hard day at work. >:D:bat: I can hardly wait to ER!

None.

Most people on the board are good folks. Everyone has their moments (including myself). But so far I have not felt the need to ignore.

I have full control to read or not read comments as I choose. It is rare that I choose to not read something because a particular person wrote it, rather it is the topic (or tangent on the topic) that I might choose to not read.

Fraud! Oh, you Firm One, that is not what happens when I come upon one of my ignored people.

Haven't voted yet, will wait to the end of the day to see if I want to add anyone. BTW, I read everything anyway because I don't sign in on my mobile device so it doesn't know I'm one of those who is ignoring you (if I am)! When I am signed in, the ignore signal reminds me not to post with this one; but I'm untrainable and post anyway.
 
TexasProud, no you're not on my ignore list ;-). I meant the second choice in the poll to apply to folks like you (and W2R and chinaco) who just don't use the feature.

RunningBum, I didn't realize there was already a poll. At any rate, maybe the numbers have changed between then and now.

W2R, sorry you had a rough day at work.

None on ignore, but I don't read all threads either, or only parts of some.

The wide variety of opinions is often entertaining.
 
FYI, six people ignore between 10 and 24 posters, though I would bet some of the ignored people have since left.

Another 14 people ignore between three and eight posters

None - I am pretty easily entertained and easy going - Heck I even enjoyed alot of JGs stuff and the flames he got started..... 8>)
 
I don't ignore anyone yet, but I'm still kind of new here. I still like reading everyone's comments. Even the ones from crazy fools I don't agree with (just kidding--there are no crazy fools here).
 
Zero, although I've been thinking of putting myself on my ignore list. Sometime I really piss me off.

Seriously, I only read a fraction of the posts. I have limited time and can only read the board during rare bouts of availability (can't wait until I ER). There are a few people who I normally skip (and some people who I always read), but I don't have a need to use the ignore feature.
 
I've got 8 on ignore, but a couple aren't here anymore, so maybe it's really 6.
 
I tend to skim posts at best and there are certain favorite posters who I read regularly like Nords, W2R and CFB, and T-boneAl if he ever says anything. Also that rich guy in FLA. A few others. Sorry if I missed you. Some are topic-dependent.

If I get on a board where I need Ignore I usually don't stay long because the admin people are messing up.

On another board I have one on the list for consistent content-free posts.

I'm kidding. It got the conversation started, didn't it? :)
