About the ignore option

I've never used it. The only posters who have pissed me off that much turned out to be trolls. However, I just found out someone is ignoring me! Little old me!! I'm pretty mild mannered and I don't even post all that much. In fact, I feel pretty invisible around here most of the time so I'm wondering what I could have said to make someone dislike me that much.

Anyway, it occurs to me that there may be more than one. (I just happened to run across a post that said "This poster is ignoring you" I'm curious now.... how does one know who or how many people are ignoring them?

1. I would not worry about it.

 

I have 10 people ignoring me, and it does not bother me at all. You just can't please everyone in this life.

4. Doesn't bother me.

I actually find it kind of amusing. I didn't think anyone paid enough attention to me to feel that strongly. I can only figure they have half of DU on ignore.

2. The way you find out how many are ignoring you:

Click on My Profile tab at the top of the page...

And then click on the Transparency tab on your profile page. That will lead you to the place where you can see how many are ignoring you.

I don't think you can know who is ignoring you. Did the post you saw show you who it was?

5. You are such a sweethear that I'm certain no one would be ignoring you however,

I learned in the wee hours of an almost sleepless night that someone is ignoring me and I was hurt and then questioning. I never try to push anyone into a corner but rather give them an escape route!! Even then, I am being ignored. I just did as you advised and it seems this procedure unearths rather recent ignores, 90 days, so when none showed up for me I guess I must have riled someone more than three months ago. Oh well,,,,,the best laid plans....Congrats on all your hearts! You surely deserve them....I for one appreciate your manner.

7. Thank you, my dear snappyturtle...

I do have people ignoring me......I think it's 20. It used to bother me too, but no more. If they really don't like me, then it's better that they cannot see what I write.

Thank you for your kind wishes!

12. Hmmm, well maybe I was fooled by someone's tag line

or something because I just did what you said and looked at my transparency, and it says zero people have me on ignore.

And now I can't find the post again! But it said "This DU Member has you on ignore" or something like that in red letters. It must have been a signature or tag-line or whatever you call it. Maybe I'd better go un-ignore that person now, lol.

15. That's what I was going to point out to you.

I can't remember who the DUer was, but I remember seeing a signature line like that.

Now that the mystery is solved, I feel that I can tell you how cute your initial post is -- made me smile.

Welcome to DU, OnionPatch!

18. The DUer you referred to . . .

with the tag line 'This DU Member has you on Ignore' is Orrex. It caught me by surprise too. But he/she responded to one of my posts, so it's obviously a joke.

3. If you look on your transparency page, it tells how many star members are ignoring you.

[font style="font-size:.8462em;"](link goes to your transparency page - whoever clicks that link should see their own transparency page)[/font]

11. was it orrex?

that is his signature line, not a feature of the website saying he is ignoring you

he has a bit of a warped sense of humor, that sig line catches me sometimes too, when I haven't been around in a while

16. LOL! I searched this forum to find this info!

I wanted to see if that was a real DU message or a sig line, and now I know! I was also confused as to why someone would have me on ignore! LOL

before posting, like you did.

I was confused, too and thinking that person must be extremely sensitive!

24. I feel your pain

I have not even reached double digits on posts since 2009 and someone is ignoring me. I love the DU, I read it everyday. I do not post because I am sensitive and do not want to be insulted all the time. I have been reading it since it began because my older sister has always been a DUer. The DU is a lot different from when I use to sit with her by her computer and read some really interesting stuff.

25. Me too.

I don't have many posts considering how long I've been a member. (Since 2004--almost ten years!) I am also sensitive. (A liberal trait?) I tend to angst each time I post. I think it's just the nature of Internet forums that people are quick to attack. It's the anominity of not talking face to face. Kind of like how people are such a-holes in their cars.

26. Me either

Hey,
I don't post very much either considering how long I have been a member and how often I am on here. I guess it is a reflection of my "real life", I'm a rather quiet person. I have only started a thread once. I reply when I have something worthwhile to say or to thank someone for a thought provoking post or interesting link or something. I sometimes wonder about members that post 60 times a day or something and wonder if they are that obnoxious in real life too. That was a joke...kind of.

I mostly hang out in the Lounge, you don't have to worry about being attacked there usually, you should come on over sometime, the water is fine.

Peace
