They seem to be getting even more testy and running in packs; makes this site hard to take at times.

I know, I should just ignore this stuff but it is difficult and probably just not in my nature- I apologize to the genuine Members here working to make this an educational and relevant numismatic page but it just isn't for me.

Best, Jack.

    I appreciate the feedback but the responses that would make a difference would be from the hosts on the best way to handle this than just ignore it. I consider this a professional forum...

    and this is uncommon how? you will find people like that in the real world also, personally for me it's just a opinion from a screen name i have never met so it's not going to make any issue to me

    Well, it’s got  professionals for sure but it’s a public forum. Perhaps taking into consideration the state of affairs in the country, you’ll need to reconsider your position and the ignore button is easy to use and easy to turn off or on. 
    

    The person you placed on ignore shows up as a shadowy name and makes it easy to monitor them.
    There’s a member here who I appreciate their input but can’t handle the gazillion posts on the humor thread.
    Others have mentioned it directly with no luck. Therefore, I lose because I miss out on the good stuff. 😉🙀🦫

    To OP, seems if you have a beef with these posts you should talk the the hosts via the 'Flag' button than calling them out here - it kinda makes you the same as the ones you want to call out..............

    Unfortunately the 'ignore' doesn't shade out initial posts, only replies. I also think an extended 'ignore' list would be a time saving feature.

    I have- thanks...

    And I have no problem calling myself out.

    I'm thinking the majority of these are coming from one or maybe two troll people. One gets whacked, the two more pop up. The patterns are so similar.

    You’re doing the real collectors an outstanding service and those that matter recognise that. Don’t sweat the others.

    That's right. There's a good read book out there about don't sweat the small stuff. Regard ad hominem attacks on anyone, not just oneself, as coming from small stuff. Resorting to ad hominem says more about the person delivering the ad hominem than it does about the one on the receiving end of the ad hominem.

    Oh, I see. But calling me a troll isn’t an insult? Seems like there’s a double standard here. What a joke you are. I’ve seen much worse from other members.

  • spacehaydukespacehayduke Posts: 5,468 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm thinking your name calling in your posts could probably not be repeated to get off some posters 'troll list'. Just food for thought here.

    @burfle23 Please tell me how you can laugh at a couple “insults” I made and then refer to me as a troll? And then start a thread on it.

    Additionally, trolls aren’t necessarily immune from being funny. I don’t know how the LOL’s were intended, either.

    @burfle23 This LOL is from you. And then you start with how it’s not your nature and other b.s.

    I'm not trying to wheedle out of anything. I'm just stating a fact. There's a forum member who dislikes me and, for a while, he was putting an LOL on every post I made. There used to be a disagree button. When that went away, LOL became the replacement.

    But, as I said in my prior post, I can't know the intent of the LOL. I also don't know that it matters.

    I'm really not sure why you are lashing out at everyone. I am NOT a fan of this particular thread. I also personally wouldn't have labeled you a troll. But I find myself liking you less after your responses on this thread.

    Well, I was reported for “insulting” a troll, a troll that was attacking other members. Then I was insulted by a member who then called me a troll. And then that member took it a step further and started a thread which pointed me out to be a troll. You don’t think that would cause some hard feelings? Like me or not, I will defend myself. My intentions were good.

    I don't blame you for being mad at the OP. As I said, I do not like or approve of this thread. However you're lashing out at everyone. I know it's hard to ignore some of these curmudgeons. However, I'm quite certain that you can't refute a post about your insults by hurling more insults.

    @jmlanzaf Mark, for example, made no comment other than the LOL didn't mean anything. That didn't really deserve the response it got.

    That comment of mine wasn’t referring to you - I didn’t see anything humorous in what you were posting. And no, that was not an insult.
