I realize the boundaries are not real but isnt this taking it a bit too far?

Have a read of the announcement I made at the top of Genius forum.

If the text is too small, I recommend going to your User Control Panel, "Board Preferences" and then change "My Board Style" to subsilver2.

Both options are a bit hard on the eyes. May we have a black background with yellow/orange or green font? That should make it easier to look at.

never mind.
I like it. Especially some of the new preferences, such as 'ignore user'...

I like some of the extra moderator features but I've opted for subsilver2 myself.

You can ignore users using the scrolling function, no?

Why do you care?
What difference does it make to you?
And no, using the scrolling function doesn't work very well for ignoring someone who is intentionally abusing you.

Ctrl-Home should do it for you.

Hi Katy,
Kelly: You can ignore users using the scrolling function, no?

Katy: Why do you care?

I think it's important to think about emotions, rather than to express or suppress them.

And no, using the scrolling function doesn't work very well for ignoring someone who is intentionally abusing you.
Finding out what people are really saying, underneath the slander or politeness, and learning to distrust all human motivation, is a very stimulating lesson. It won't happen if one doesn't want to face that ugly reality.

If someone is just unrelentingly boring and irrational, then I ask them to leave the forum on my own behalf. Not much point persisting with a lesson which has been done to death.

OK, so don't use the ignore function yourself since that is the position you are in. What does it matter to you whether someone else uses the ignore function? This sounds a lot more like paranoia that you'll be ignored yourself than any type of philosophical objection.

Seeing you are not an admin, asking someone to leave the board is
A. rather presumptuous and extremely egotistical
and
B. kinda pointless since they don't have to do it

I don't recall seeing you do this. Was this just a hypothetical situation, or have you asked people to leave via pm? And if you have asked people to leave via pm, how many have actually left?
