why would you want to see who's the most ignored? so you can make fun of them?

hhaha! you're the most ignored! HAHAHAHAHA! hahahaha.... hahha...ha...ha...phew!
 
2003-11-03 01:34:09 PM  
btw, what do you need to do to lose html priveleges?

Post a NSFW pic.
 
2003-11-03 01:34:10 PM  
But when you ignore, and people are discussing an ignored post, you get lost in the conversation.
 
2003-11-03 01:34:23 PM  
Flamegirl,

I'd rather not try to understand the perpetually incoherant. But thanks!

I don't think it's meant to understand some of these people.
However, making fun of them is not illegal, and normally doesn't take much brainpower, either.

Axoplasm

Here's your handbasket to hell.
I got one for myself, for laughing out loud to that.
 
2003-11-03 01:35:57 PM  
Yeah! Now we never have to hear differing opinions, and we can pretend that everyone in the forum is just like us.
 
2003-11-03 01:35:58 PM  
First!!

Ha ha ha only a joke guys. You see, I put you all on... oh to hell with it...
 
2003-11-03 01:37:01 PM  
If only I had a button to ignore the voices in my head.

I hate them so much.
 
2003-11-03 01:37:30 PM  
It's called a scroll button, look into it.
 
2003-11-03 01:38:02 PM  
A listing that takes me directly to, or highlights my favorite asshats postings would be far more useful... I'd up to TF for that. I mean, imagine being able to skip over all my like minded farkers and get directly to those I want to pour gasoline on!

What is the biggest advantage for TotalFarking?

Well, aside from the quiet sense of fulfillment one gets for helping to support something interesting, illuminating, and fun, there is one small thing.

All of us in TF secretly laugh at regular Farkers, make fun of you over in Total Fark land where you can't see it, say rude things about you and your lineage, keep all the best boobie links and articles for ourselves because we don't like to share them with you sub TF'ers, because basically we consider you a lower form of life.

I am not supposed to tell you this, but I won't get in trouble, because a TF badge is like a get out of jail free card. We can do anything. We are beyond the reach of mortal Farkers. We are the ruling class in Fark. We rock.

I am going to back to TF and make fun of you guys some more.
 
2003-11-03 01:39:03 PM  
I think it's me, Downsouth, after all, I do post asshattedness from time to time.
 
2003-11-03 01:40:08 PM  
Good idea, because it's true: some people just won't argue logically. And by "arguing logically" I mean apologize obsequiously and agree with my comments.

what's a battle?
 
2003-11-03 01:41:14 PM  
From dictionary.com:

No entry found for asshattedness.
 
2003-11-03 01:41:17 PM  
That's alright colomboy I spew out some stupid shiat on a regular basis.
 
2003-11-03 01:41:22 PM  
ah crap, that's what I get... sorry everyone... I said sorry... what do you want me to say? damn chill out! ok.. I am really sorry.
 
2003-11-03 01:42:02 PM  
I like fun!
 
2003-11-03 01:42:02 PM  
yahoo chat needs something like this to permanantly ignore the bots.

i dont think there are regular "asshats" here at fark that post useless junk all the time.
we are pretty good at policing ourselves arent we?

we usually report the morons, horrible offenders posts are removed ASAP..
i dont see the use.

I've been waiting for this and may actually get TF now.

For long flame wars, it would be nice to filter out the obvious attention whores, dorks fawning over their favorite Farkette and people who copy/paste bible quotes without actually adding anything to the discussion.

Sounds cool to me.
 
2003-11-03 01:45:57 PM  
Just out of curiosity, was this posted by a TFer, or by the Fark admins?
 
2003-11-03 01:46:03 PM  
Bring back the "html enabled" checkbox for posting first... Where did it go?
 
2003-11-03 01:47:25 PM  
When I was in college, someone once told me I "begged to be ignored."

should know for sure soon
 
2003-11-03 01:48:01 PM  
Just out of curiosity, was this posted by a TFer, or by the Fark admins?

It was greenlighted in an area where most of the links hadn't been reviewed yet. (They've all been reviewed by now.) So you decide.
 
2003-11-03 01:49:00 PM  
The alternative route would be the metafilter way: just close down fark for new users. Hrmph.

Aaaand: no-one else has mentioned the irony yet: first you get TF to see more ... now you use TF to see less ... heh.

just a smidgen, please.
 
2003-11-03 01:50:42 PM  
what was that colomboy?

Sorry I can't hear you
 
2003-11-03 01:50:44 PM  
What a stupid idea!!
 
2003-11-03 01:50:53 PM  
I take great comfort in knowing that most/none of the TotalFarkers are reading this comment

******

Only admins can post links to the main board. Now if you mean submitted, that's a different kettle of fish.

I would like to don my Helm of Farsightedness and predict the emergence of four distinct types of asshat in upcoming weeks on Fark bulletin boards because of this feature:

1) Asshats who brag about how many people are ignoring their comments because what they say is too hard to rebut or otherwise respond to, instead of just mind-numbingly stupid.

2) Asshats who make it a point to tell everyone in a bulletin board who's talking to someone they've chosen to ignore that they've ignored that person, even though nobody will ask and nobody will care.

3) Asshats who do nothing but post annoying, nonsense posts to get themselves on an ignore list for the sheer joy of knowing they're being ignored.

4) Asshats who claim to be ignoring people, but who really aren't because they can't bear to miss out on any single word that might possibly be said about themselves.

Have I missed anyone?
 
2003-11-03 01:51:53 PM  
*adds everyone who posted in this thread to his ignore list*
 
2003-11-03 01:52:28 PM  
I would like to have a thread ignore feature.

That way, Ask Men, Strongbad and Newsmax threads don't show up.
 
2003-11-03 01:53:10 PM  
sorry hyernel maybe everyone is already screening you.

Detailed Technical Instructions for non-farker to ignore asshat posters:

read name of poster
if (name of poster is asshat to be ignored) {
scan down page to name of next poster
}

Asshats that post about aforementioned Asshats.

That would make you an asshat of the second power, drunken, for posting about an asshat that posted about asshats.

So, if you add a bunch of people to your ignore list, will it significantly slow down how fast the comments load?


Hell, I've been tempted to add myself to my own ignore list for garble comments.
 
2003-11-03 01:55:55 PM  
i think this idea has been given a slight thumbs-down...
of course, u dont have to use it if you dont want
 
2003-11-03 01:56:01 PM  
ok, now my head hurts.

D.L.B where do you fall?


as for #3 that would be cool if on your profile or somewhere it would post how many people are ignoring you.

 
2003-11-03 01:56:43 PM  
asshat = old 'n busted

asscheeto = new hotness

now back to your corners you two
 
2003-11-03 01:57:37 PM  
The ravenous Bugblatter Beast of the Planet Traal believes that if you put it on ignore and you can't see it, it can't see you.

[It's Douglas Adams Monday!]
 
2003-11-03 01:58:22 PM  
Pocket Ninja & D.L.B. it seems like I've brought up another type of asshat. The kind that posts his comment so late that its already worn out.

I fall under E) All of the above.
 
2003-11-03 01:58:40 PM  
They should let you know how many people have ignored you on your profile. Then when you reach a certain number, whammo ...baninated!
 
2003-11-03 01:59:03 PM  
This was such a bad idea I actually cancelled my TotalFark membership. I don't need to pay money to promote censorship.
 
2003-11-03 01:59:55 PM  
Now if I could selectively send posters comments through the Dialectizer and make them sound like Elmer Fudd or the Swedish Chef, well that would make reading them easier.

Hmm.. I think that ability is just enough to motivate me to get TF.. =)
