    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people whose posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Yes, some heavy-handed moderation chased many of us away. And the fuss about "off topic" posts sent even others away. I post only occasionally and try my best to be "non-controversial".

    So true. I was one of the proponents of OT stuff. I know I have MS and don't needed to be reminded of it all the time. I would rather laugh than cry. And I am, by nature not a real controversial person to begin with. I am a lover not a fighter. That noise you just heard was my wife groaning and rolling her eyes.


    Howie, you cant back off. How am I supposed to keep these girls in line by myself? I don't have anywhere near enough cabanna boy outfits.

    And if anyone needs to know anything just ask........my wife informed me that I am a smart @$$ and a know-it-all.

    Spongy, thong butt? Now you've planted a picture in my mind that I'm not so sure I want to see!

    (((((HUGS TO ALL)))))) ~

    Forgive me for intruding, but I am compelled to tell you all that your OT threads are a highlight of my BT visits. Haiku, birds, and chatting here brightens my day, brings me a smile, often a chortle, and occasionally, I spit out my coffee laughing.

    Yes, a decade ago it seems, things were different, and that caused folks to vamoose. But we are under new management now, with very kind, caring Moderators. So those who were dissatisfied under the old regime should be contacted and encouraged to return here. It will be better than the old days.

    What we lack in numbers here at BT is more than compensated for by compassion, heart, and kindred spirits, who understand each other's plights.

    As I've said in other threads about the state of BT, it is up to us to make BT the community we want it to be, and the only way that we can do that is to participate. We can't change it, improve it, or make it more attractive to former and new members, if we lurk in the shadows.

    The MS forum is probably our most active forum, just based on my informal assessment of activity here daily. You successfully mix social contact and discussion about MS, and you enjoy your time here. You're here for each other, and when a new person visits, you are there for that person. I know I don't belong here, but you let me slip in now and then, and treat me like I belong. Thank you.

    Now, Howie ~ Your fans are begging you not to retire. Don't let them down.



    Love & Light,

    Howie, it looks like I joined about 3 years after you did but I left then because it seemed like everyone was so darn serious.

    You want more people to be around having fun here on weekends, is that it? Are you hanging out somewhere else then? If so, where?
