    I like some of Puggerup's posts, and some seem a bit over the top. Although the reasons why are sometimes explained and seems ok then.

    I like Occy's posts. NFI if I like Occy. Too soon to tell.

    I have mixed feelings about Cleasanta and partner. Sometimes I like what they post and sometimes I don't. I suspect it's mutual. Doesn't matter a lot to me.

    So I don't like the idea of an "Occy and Cleasanta fan Club" or grouping people into one. It's a silly idea because I find their posts and opinions quite different and I might not be the only one. And just because I like Occy's posts doesn't mean I can't like Puggerup's posts too. Nuts.

    My understanding is that you would like to be able to have a conversation with Occy, and Occy - at this point in time and for reasons of her own - would prefer not to. I can understand that this would be frustrating but I doubt it is intended as anything personal against you, puggerup.

    There are quite a few topics on this forum that completely polarise people to the point where some can't even be rational with a person supporting the opposing idea/opinion. In this case I think it would be only fair to allow or even encourage ignore.

    Is it really reasonable to try to force someone to listen to you when they'd rather not? Especially when the main reason they'd rather not listen/read the posts is so they don't feel tempted to post back something unpleasant?

    As for whether "Ignore" is used for evil, I can't see a way of making it better without making work for the moderator. Maybe we could require that people not discuss who they have on ignore? Although it makes no difference if they choose not to respond to a post addressed to them even if they had read the post.
    ehmmm...what's with the "Occy and Cleasanta Fan Club"? I didn't know we had a Fan Club???

    I think the same goes here Hyacinth...sometimes I like what you post...other times I don't. You write informative posts But honestly...I don't really care what people think...I don't have to be your mate or best friend.

    Yep...I am opinionated...passionate...etc, but I do not tell my hubby what to write...that is done at his own will.

    I have had run-ins with Anne...that doesn't mean I hate all her posts.

    There are people I simply do not like. Often it is people who do not contribute anything useful to the Forum and hardly ever talk about dogs. Do you have to "like" everybody...nope!

    We ignore people for lots of reasons. I have 5 people on ignore and not for the same reasons. It might be a clash of personality...an difference in opinions...simply not liking the person.

    Sure I am guilty of telling people they are on ignore...but I didn't know it was a crime and stated in the Forum rules that I was not allowed. I would much rather tell a person...you are on ignore, so don't waste time writing to me. I also have every right to change my mind regarding who I ignore. It could be someone sending me a pm saying...this person is saying something really interesting and I choose to take them off ignore. It is MY prerogative to choose who I have on ignore or not...who I want to talk to etc. I read posts and think...jeeeez and simply ignore them and others I don't ignore.

    I am also guilty of telly Pugga that it was no use to talk to Occy, because she couldn't hear her...I didn't know that was a crime either. I got to a point where I was sick and tired of reading the little...."oh but I am talking to myself because the member has me on ignore" posts...when it was quite obvious that YES Occy has her on ignore!

    I can't see half of the posts in this thread and I have decided that the people on ignore will stay there...permanently. It is a better place FOR ME when I can't see what they write.

    Dunno - it just sort of appeared. I can keep up with threads quite easily - dunno about others. The fan club is not sanctioned, thus it is unofficial lol

    See you wouldn't know about the fan club if you don't read puggerup's posts. And thats when using ignore can get a bit weird - ie I can comment on all the posts in here except the bright pink ones (hard to read) - but some have half the people on ignore only get half the conversation.
