More than ever I feel the need for this. Is the HQ position still the same?

What about another colour option.

One for those you have chatted too and would want to read their posts.

Another for those you really don't want to see air their opinions.

A third for ones you aren't fussed about, haven't come across yet.

It's only been a few weeks since the last thread. Was definitely still a no then.

TiggyD Sun 20-Dec-15 17:34:03

No. Terrible idea.

SoupDragon Sun 20-Dec-15 17:36:34

I just add names to my mental list of posters not to engage with and leave them to it. Funnily enough, I've just added one. It works well for me.

Raxacoricofallapatorius Sun 20-Dec-15 17:45:52

Me too. Just like in rl. I either attack the sentiment or choose not to engage. It's the mature way to do it. Sadly.

Was that a pointed remark, Soup? grin

The coloured posts option would be good. I need a metaphorical weapon, something to HIT someone with when I get really hacked off with them, that they don't have to know about. Like blocking someone's number when they are a nuisance.

Maybe I'm just hormonal.

SoupDragon Sun 20-Dec-15 17:46:36

no, it was an honest one.

SagaNorenLanskrimMalmo Sun 20-Dec-15 17:46:44

and I don't have space in my head for a virtual list. I wish I did but it wouldn't work. I cant remember anyone's name any more. <old>

Just silently pity their iniquitous existence. Delight in the choice not to slither down the food chain to join them. And mutter bad swears.

My mantra on MN is that I will not enter into a battle of wits with the unarmed. It's most useful.

B33rTricksPott3r Sun 20-Dec-15 17:49:06

There's an outside patch thing you can apply to MN. I forget who linked it but maybe the poster will see it and link it again for you.

SagaNorenLanskrimMalmo Sun 20-Dec-15 17:50:28

Oh I hope so

thanks for the tips.

I think the ability to be able to colour other posters' posts (as well as your own and the OP's) is worth looking at.

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Dec-15 17:56:58

I had a list in my head but it got too big. sad Now I either don't post if they are the OP or if they appear I disappear.

Oh man, I knew another Saga would show up sooner or later.

I don't even get any highlighted posts on MN. So I don't think the colour thing would work for me.

SoupDragon Sun 20-Dec-15 18:06:30

I find I recognise them with some part of my brain and an advanced search usually reminds me why.

I think physically hiding a poster is childish I guess. I go for turning the other cheek no, not THOSE other cheeks.

usual Sun 20-Dec-15 18:06:37

The patch only works on Firefox I think

southeastastra Sun 20-Dec-15 18:08:22

I talk to anyone ;)

usual Sun 20-Dec-15 18:11:45

I just ignore the posters who get on my wick.

I play the "which PBP are you?" game myself. grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 20-Dec-15 18:21:20

I do that Saga grin

SoupDragon Sun 20-Dec-15 18:22:33

I play "spot the OP who isn't a troll" game. It's getting FAR trickier nowadays.

(And no, this isn't a pointed post in case I need to point that out smile)
