How about an "Ignore Thread" button?

Post by smcj » Sat Jun 04, 2016 11:42 pm

We already have an option to not see a specific member's posts. So how about an option to NOT have an entire thread that either offends or annoys one from coming up on their "unread posts" list?

I will admit that i click on some threads that are annoying just out of boredom. I'd rather not even see those threads come up at all.

Whatever happened to good old-fashioned regular ignoring? You know, when you just ignore something?

A button for every aversion. :coffee:

There is a button, it is called discernment/discrimination ( Tib. 'du-shes; Skt samjna), you'll find it just after attention... :smile:

I had that idea some times. But I didn't put any import to it, since ignoring threads is way easier than ignoring certain provocateurs.
I knew a forum, where it was possible to ignore whole subforums. And I tried that function for a while, since there were two or three creepy people occupying those forums with 'interesting" gory stuff. But I found it unpractical, because I was too much interested in what my "friends" had to say.

To the detractors of this idea I would like to say: such a technical function can help as support for the development of equanimity. :tongue: He who never gets drawn into an annoying discussion ("and who is without sin") may cast the first stone.
