Hey, if us mods can't use the ignore feature, neither should you! Muwahaha... enjoy the drivel that we have to sort through.

Just use your 'internal ignore' like I have been.  You can certainly tell that it's hot and humid in the past week or so......some brains apparently are experiencing complete meltdowns!! ;) :mrgreen:

Whew!...thought it was just me that thought things were getting a little testy.
Now that I am older, I thought it was great that I seemed to have more patience.  Turns out I just don't give a damn.

I don't have an attitude...I have a personality you can't handle!

Looks like some people are getting bored without any kind of hockey to talk about. 
Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP. 
edit -  Hopefully within my lifetime.......

Yeah.....hearing repeatedly that the Leafs are "close to signing" Wilson or that Hasek is retiring is not exactly the type of stuff that keeps one's interests "alive"!! ;)

Oh I don't know.  Right now I'm having some fun arguing with some people. ;)
There are good coaches and there are bad coaches, the real question is "Do you want this person to be a role model to your kids for the next 6 months".  That's the question you have to ask yourself.

I have been trying to use my internal ignore button but it's not working out so well.  Maybe taking the summer off would be a good idea for me.  This used to be such a good board....sigh!

Still is. But as a place gets bigger, you get a higher number of trouble makers. And even looking back in the days, you had the same BS we are experiencing right now. Trolls like Trentblue, shit disturbers like BG and plcamp, useless-posts artists like AB and operasen. Things aren't much different.

It still IS a good board.  But taking a little 'holiday' from anything is never a bad thing.  Fact is, like life you just have to 'pick your battles' and you will still be able to take a lot of good out of something if you pick wisely.  :nod:

But if you take a little holiday....know that lots of us will still be here when you come back!! :thumbsup:

I've changed my mind.  I would like the ignore button back.  I'm finding it very hard to ignore certain people in particular and it's driving me crazy because I want to say something, but I'm trying really really hard to hold myself back. :icon_banghead: :icon_banghead: :icon_banghead:

The ignore feature is a modification that is at this time is not quite compatible with the version of this board.  This is quite common for modifications.  The board software folks will usually make updates to the board software and it is up to the makers of the modifications to update their mods to meet the level of the board.  Currently we are running at version 1.15 of the board software and the ignore modification is compatible for version 1.13.  It has been successfully installed in some ver. 1.14 boards but has not benn tested with ver.1.1.5.  As soon as it is made compatible I will be happy to install it.  Until then you can in fact report questionalbe posts by clicking on the yellow triangle with the exclamation mark.  We will be happy to deal with them.

Gotta look on the bright side of things.....you are getting great lessons in tolerance and/or holding back!  It's a valuable life skill.....what I think and what I say are two vastly different things most days (and not just here on the site!).  It's a great way to exercise both sides of your brain!! ;) :mrgreen:

Sorry ST, but for now you must suffer as us mods/admins do.  The sad part is while it is just garbage talk there really is not much we can do as much of it is not warranting bans.
