    Default What's so hard about ignoring somebody?

    More than a few bans here have come from someone simply not knowing how to walk away from a dispute. This is often even after someone claims they are going to walk away or ignore it. Many more people who haven't been banned (yet) do this same annoying habit, along with telling someone else to ignore them as they keep talking.

    What the fuck, people? I've been in some protracted bouts, but I've managed to avoid ever moving into infraction territory, and when I say I'm done, I'm done.

    What is so hard about walking away and ignoring it?

    Great pic! Is that a poster you can purchase? Oh yeah, people need to let things go. Some arguments are won but not settled, if people won't reason they no longer deserve attention.

    Walking away and ignoring it is the easy part, it is continuing that must be done and is hard to keep at but backing down is just so much more terrible.

    Like that xkcd comic, if something is wrong on the internet, I correct it.

    Continuing the dispute in itself isn't going to put me into the land of the banned. Going into personal attack territory is a whole different matter and I do not do that, as far as I know.

    BTW, I think you mean "...do this same annoying habit"

    Magic, do you get in back and forth arguments about nothing with people? I assume you don't because I haven't seen it. (I could be wrong) The same thing causing people to want to argue like that is the same thing that makes them not stop arguing.

    I've given up "expecting more" from people when I realize how many people like their conflict and see worth in it. People are going to be themselves, and if that includes feeling they have to argue with someone about nothing and get banned they are going to do it.

    No one is going to get cured of themselves.

    edit: Oh I see you say you have done these back and forth things. You should understand being stuck in it enough to not care about being banned then?

    No, he means "due to this same annoying habit"

    If you feel the need to correct someone at least be correct.

    It sounds like you are suggesting we should just ban the lot of 'em and be done with it? (Hmmm....)

    Or ignore the banter if they do it in their own places and not in the middle of threads.

    I've never been sure about the off topic arguments in the middle of threads about other stuff. Maybe it's like sex in public. More exciting that way.

    As one of the people you are presumably addressing, I can tell you that I was banned 8 hours after I had privately settled the matter with admin and had already walked away from the petty trolling of another member. I have concluded that there is no rhyme or reason to banning patterns on this board (mods don't talk to each other and some of them are trigger happy) so frankly, I no longer give a fuck when it happens.
