and i think it would be awful if you continued pming someone and not realsing they'd put you on ignore. you'd have to figure it out for yourself.
lol, I didn't think I'd made a statement that could be agreed or disagreed with... ... I was talking from the stand point of the person wanting to ignore someone, rather then the one being ignored. The reason I think it would be dumb is simply because that person knew they were being ignored, so they could make a new user name and continue the harrassment(SP?). I have been to a site(chat) where people got abusive verbaly to others. When you'd hit the iggy button, sometimes that person would leave, and come back under a different name. Then it would be worse. They would continue where they left off, then by being ignored, it was more fuel to the flaming fire. I just stopped chatting at that site. I think all that were left were the people who flamed, and unsuspecting newbies who wondered in there looking for conversation.
I too would want to know if someone wanted
to ignore me, but I don't just go off on people, and TRY to start krap, like people at that site did. That iggy notification actually seemed like it egged on the problems at that site. I've pmed people in the past when I thought I MIGHT offend them, and appologized, and told them to pm me back if they wanted my post deleted. In every case the people who I thought I might offend, weren't, and were happy that I offered. But if I do offend anyone, I would wanna know.
That site I am referring to is down now, I think. I started chatting on that site, then went to a different one. That was like 10 years ago, if I remember the name, I'll post it and see if anyone here remembers that chat site. maybe it was 8 or 9 years ago?? hmmm...............
If someone were to just ignore me maybe I woudln't wanna be notified, cuz then it would eat me up inside. I would wonder what I did, if I could fix it. I would wanna pm them to try to work it out, but I wouldn't be able to, cuz I would be ignored. Then I would want to have someone give them a messege and that could be seen as harrassing someone...
Perhaps if I do offend anyone, I would rather they pm me also, let me know, and I will happily edit, or delete a post that did offend someone. I would rather work it out.
