Here we go - long time since I cleaned out my dungeon . . . .

I'm gonna parole all my detainees, let them out into the forums, and see how many, how quickly get back in there . . .

WHOA!!! - just checked - there's 17 in there!

Well hell, - I'll just let 16 out out and and the one remaining can clean up the cells for the ones that will definitely return

ps: - I might just update this thread as to the "success" of my "amnesty" Numbers, not names - this site has enuf internal strife . . .

1. Do you mean to tell me that there is more that 17 people posting here?

You must not see much of the forum.

2. Well - I miss their OPs, which I don't really regret at all,

and I avoid their flame-throwing and the deflections that follow.

There are still some members who sorta piss me off, but DO make adequate worthwhile contributions to Discussionist imo, so they are not likely candidates for incarceration in my dungeons.

They do not end up being there because I don't share their point of view, but because I think they are behaving like assholes, by nature or by accident - I don't care - I get a break from their unpleasantness . . . .

Ya - that's the polite version

3. The forum must look very different to you with 17 on ignore.

4. I would like to see the names

so I could compare them with my list. There's no "call out" rule here to worry about.

5. nah - I've no need nor desire to piss off even those that I dislike.

I'm not worried that to do the "call out thing" would violate the TOS,

it's just not ME

7. Yeah, quite possibly,

but if I messed up, I might appreciate a second, or maybe even a third chance . . . .

ps: I got banned from DU for one post that offended too many - no previous hides after ten years membership - hell, it was never hidden, still isn't - didn't wanna beg to keep my username here, ergo the "aka". in my username.

8. I've been releasing a few at a time

but my tolerance for recidivism is non-existent. One of them lasted 1 day.
In the immortal words of Captain Woodrow F. Call, "I hate rudeness in a man. Won't tolerate it."

I've been a passenger on the mother-ship since the beginning. I don't post there much now. I stick to a few fora and I never post in gd. I'm notorson over there.

9. I Don't Have Anyone On Ignore.

Too bad there's no way to find out how many people have me on ignore.

10. Well, actually, there is a way to check who may have you on ignore.

If you notice a thread where the numbers don't all add up, I mean like there is no #3, or #8 and so on - well, that person has you on ignore, or you have them on ignore . . . .

Log out, or right click and open the link in a private window (my Opera gives me that option) and then DI doesn't know it is you, ergo you will see all the posts and discover who is ignoring you.

Rather simple when ya think about it
