    So you want to control the weather now?

    Not sure you get the metaphor. Rain is weather we can't control. Getting a bucket and pouring water on ducks at your local park isn't. In other words, we can control what we say and how we say it.

    Oh I get it.

    In today’s current climate of outrage society and as I originally said snowflakes, even rain upsets them. So you want to control the weather is apt considering today’s environment.

    No.

    Once again, you seem to be missing the point, a point that has already been carefully explained to you by both @decafjava and @Porco.

    While rain cannot be helped, and one might indeed get wet in a rain shower, aiming or directing a hose at someone is a choice you have made, and is not appropriate.

    You can disagree with someone without having to resort to belittling them or seeking to insult or offend them.

    I like conflict, as it generally arouses a more intimate conversation from which I can learn at the most genuine level. I guess one could consider that an authentic troll approach.

    In all fairness though, even with someone who is a flat out ashole, I do not get offended easily. I don't have anyone on my ignore list.

    Hmm, thought I had just one, there are 4 on my ignore list and possibly will add one soon.
    It's just that there are a few people on MR which post are extremely annoying, the one I am going to add is one of them, always the negativity, never positive about Apple, I think he got a warning a couple of months, he was reasonable in that time, not so anymore.
    Wish I could just ignore those ones but I can't.

    8, generally just overly combative and argumentative. I am all for understanding different opinions and points of views, but when you have fingers in your ears and are yelling it’s not much of a conversation right?

    And on the opposite end there are 15 in my follow list although I recognize a lot more than that :)

    I'm curious.

    Is there any way to see how many people are ignoring you ?

    Well…if someone is on almost everyone else's ignore list, maybe that says something about that someone?

    Just positing a theory…:)

    You get used to it. It’s not bad at all. Adaptability is a valuable trait.

    I'd imagine that - going by several posters on this thread who have written about trawling their way through their ignore lists only to find that many who had found their way on to these lists had been already suspended - that if someone finds their way onto too many different "ignore" lists, this may also signal the sort of conduct that means that they are very likely to end up suspended.

    It's more curiosity.

    While "I can tolerate the post I dislike" they are definetly distracting, and why should I bother? I just wish there was an ignore button in real life!

    I have 1, there was a spammer going around last year at the launch of the XS and blew up the first few pages of the iPhone forum where you saw nothing but his spammy posts. It was later at night so mods took a while to get them removed.

    Are there not other matters to be more curious about?

    While I don't have anyone on ignore, it would never have occurred to me to wonder whether I appear on anyone's ignore list. I suppose that this is because this is not something that bothers me all that much.

    Nothing wrong with having many curiosities :).

    I think it's a part of enjoying life.

    I see no reasons why anyone would put you on their ignore list.:D

    Well, I suppose that everyone has their own curiosities, but this is most certainly not one of mine.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Two, because of the private messages they were sending me. Neither of them have been around for a few years now.

    That strikes me as an excellent reason to put someone on ignore.

    Some people have problems with the boundaries set by others.
