    Hi Admin,

    Could we perhaps have a quick block option by right clicking the persons name in their avatar and blocking that way instead of having to go to their profile page?
    It would be simpler.

    Thanks!

    You go to settings and edit ignore list.


    Its the way nature is!
    If you dont like it, go somewhere else....

    LOL, Well you're certainly polite in that you're trying to make it is easy and fast for others to not have to spend anymore time than they need to on you.

    I know. Why can't it be in with the options when we right click on someones name on a thread post? We can do it without leaving page or opening another, it is much quicker.

    I'm sure it wont take much to add in html or whatever the coding is.

    Yes. I was always told to think of others. I'm not all one sided.

    If you want to block everyone who doesn't immediately agree with you, why are you here? It sounds like this forum is more of an agitation for you than anything else.

    admin should just install a "suspend yourself" button, kinda like panic button or self destruct.

    I was a member on a forum full of people I couldn't tolerate. Rather than constantly create threads complaining about the ownership or demanding silly features, I took a crazy step; I left.

    I'd expect that right now Admin would be a bit twitchy about making any change of any kind for any reason.

    AFAICT he lost several worrying nights and most of a couple of weekends trying to overcome the attacks and the viral inroads. Most people here were complaining about the popup ads and problems with access. I think that Admin himself, as well as the sterling efforts more or less on the fly by others who were on line when he wasn't, deserve a bit of a break from those worries.

    Let's be grateful the forum is now operating much as before. The fact that a change would or would not be easy doesn't alter the fact that every change risks giving the nasties access and mucking things up as before.

    (If someone knows exactly how these attacks are generated and exactly how they get inside sites such as this one and exactly which actions should be avoided to prevent further disruption, they should PM an admin or mod to let us know.)

    Let us get one thing straight here.
    You state I am paranoid. No proof, just your stupid little opinion. Maybe you need help? Rejection is bad, right????

    Listen, [-] me for thinking that the ignore button was for a purpose.

    I don't block 'EVERYONE' who disagrees, just persistant assholes. If you were that observant....you would know! It worries me that our children may, somewhere down the line have to be taught by the likes of [-] on here.

    [-] = foul-mouthed expressions deleted.

    hannah40. Watch your language.

    That's a good reason not to do it. It should take more than one click; it's not a feature that should be used often.

    If you DO find yourself blocking so many people that it starts to become a time sink then it's probably time to consider avoiding this forum (or science based forums in general.)

    Edited to exclude foulmouthed stuff from #13 above
    Then why do you want a "Quick Ignore" feature? It's not hard to use like it is. Unless you're hitting "ignore" the way most people hit "like" there is no point. I get that you have disagreements with some of the members on here, but you should consider either finding another way to deal with your differences or finding another forum. It's not worth the stress to ANYONE to have constant disagreements carrying over from thread to thread.

    My point is that your request for a quicker way to ignore people speaks to a problem much larger than a nested function.

    I seem to have struck a nerve.
    No proof? ... and an erected cell tower is "proof" of you being spied on???? and what about all of the other paranoid stuff you have written? your paranoid ramblings are more proof of your paranoia than a cell tower being built and your alarm clocks magically disappearing.

    No "diagnosing over the internet", please.

    1. A lot of people have what psychologists call paranoid ideation without actually suffering from a mental illness that might be called paranoid.

    2. Some people have a bit of an odd view of the world that makes everything that happens around them about them.

    3. Plenty of people have a history of too many un-nice experiences in their childhood or their personal history which has made them hyper-vigilant about anything and everything in their environment or in their dealings with other people.

    If you - or anyone else for that matter - uses paranoid as an insult or an accusation, you shouldn't. It won't help anyone regardless of their mental and emotional health status and it's distinctly uncomfortable, sometimes distressing, for people who are dealing with or recovering from professionally diagnosed mental illness.

    Thanks

    Didn't think I was diagnosing. Is it because I used a medical term instead of saying "nut bar" or "weirdo?"

    I do see that I wrote "your paranoia" although when read in context, I was using it as a way to show "proof" is a subjective term in this thread, showing I have more proof that she's "paranoid" than she does of "they" spying on her, which is really no proof at all for either of us, but I understand.

    Thought that was simple narcissism?

    Which is fine, again, I wasn't diagnosing. I'm Sorry if I came off that way.

    I'm sorry, I thought it was clear that I was using it as a general definition not the medical condition...

    I don't think an ad hominem attack would be better than a medical term.

    I do see that I wrote "your paranoia" although when read in context, I was using it as a way to show "proof" is a subjective term in this thread, showing I have more proof that she's "paranoid" than she does of "they" spying on her, which is really no proof at all for either of us, but I understand.
    How about if you just drop it, instead of picking a fight? Can we tone down the nastiness on the forum, please?

    ~ It goes like this, and that we do not enjoy it, and just shutting up seems like a task too hard.. That Hanna40 has said some things we find as hard to see as true.. and that she seems to want us to think she holds information that might cause her trouble if exposed.. Its interesting and concerning.. was she burgled ? whats that about the clocks ? and deeper and deeper we delve, but with dignity and respect. It's not such a big ask...

    I will block who I like. I don't need your approval on who or indeed where I should go on internet.


    All those trying to explain . My experiences, don't bother. You might be doing science and yourselves an injustice! :-)

    I know what is happening, I just need to prove it and I feel sorry for anyone that has been roped in to do the dirty work! The truth always comes out in the end. That is something I do have faith in.

    Moderator Comment: My thanks to hannah40 for her interest in improving the forum. For a variety of reasons, some of which have been mentioned here, there seems no pressing or convincing reason to make the suggested change at this time. Posts have now generally deteriorated into a bitching session - something the mod team are committed to reducing and eventually eliminating. Consequently, I am locking the thread. Thanks to all who have made positive inputs.
