Re: If someone put me on their ignore list..
Also, utilize the ignore button to your advantage. I can only speak for myself but I'm a little over sensitive and certain things ( be they politically or social issues, or even the topic of certain tennis players) arouse strong emotions in me. I used to get involved in a lot of petty arguements around here until I realized that I didn't need that. This forum is supposed to be fun but I couldn't get over the comments that some people were making. I've enjoyed this place so much more since I put people on that list. At first, you're going to click the option that allows you to read their posts anyway but eventually you just skip over their posts and everything is so much better. There are smart people on this board, many of whom I disagree with on certain things, but then there are also those who will say anything to push your buttons and really just enjoy fighting/arguing and those are the ones you need to ignore.
