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.
