    I'm being silly, but did you ever get the feeling that you were on the ignor list of, I dunno, HALF THE FORUM!? [​IMG]
    Like you'll notice little clues here and their. Example: You'll post something like this in a thread...
    Me/you:
    "This film was shot anamorphically rather than Super 35."
    Then someone else comes in with this...
    Joe Everyman:
    "I heard that it was shot anamorphically also."
    And than this phenominon occurs...
    Richard Somebody:
    "Yes, your right Joe, it was shot anamorphically. Thanks for the heads up."
    What am I chopped Liver!? [​IMG] I said it first.
    I usually just write it off and not say anything, afterall i'm not a big one on trying to draw attention to myself over petty things like that, but I do notice it.
    Or you'll start a thread on something, get 0 responses and drops off the face of the planet faster than Jimmy Hoffa, and then someone else starts a topc on pretty much the same subject and gets 3 pages worth of responses.
    Things of that nature.
    I feel like Joe Pesci in Goodfellas. "What do you got me on a pay-no-mind list kid!?" Except in this case, there REALLY is a pay-no-mind list! [​IMG]
    It's probably a completely false feeling, but has this ever crossed your mind? I mean this in a light hearted manner, not to be taken dead seriously. I know that i'm not on any ignor lists, but sometimes the paranoid part of my brain starts telling me that I am. I just tell it to shut up most of the time. [​IMG]

    The cynical version : Everybody lies, but it doesn't matter, BECAUSE NOBODY LISTENS!!

    Hey I'm on free internet... I don't have the time to set up an ignore list.
    It would be fun just to ignore different people everyweek.

    Brentle there's an 'h' in my surname, and oh btw you just made my ignore list, congrats, get in line, you're no.869.[​IMG]
    I sometimes use the 'ignore everyone' button, it's so calming, I just leap about the forum completely starkers, not a care in the world.[​IMG]
    I once accidently hit the 'ignore forum' button and found myself in some weird world, full of dwarfs, and saw a few banished HTF members their heads down wandering around aimlessly.[​IMG]

    How its possible to ignore some of the posts in a chronological forum is beyond me...all punchlines and no setups!

    If it makes you feel any better, I don't have anyone on my ignore list.
    Of course, if you have me on yours, this reassurance is probably pointless.

    You know, John, I think you're right, I'm just surprised that no one else has responded to this thread, cause I know a lot of other people must feel that way. What gives? [​IMG]

    I didn't even know there was an ignore list. I guess I must've ignored it.
    John, I think it would be worse if I wasn't on any real ignore list, but was ignored constantly anyway... that would mena they read my messages and STILL ignored me. [​IMG] At least if they don't read them, I could always ta1ke comfort in the fact that they didn't see my brilliant message.

    I dunno, Brian. Seems weird to start a topic and have no post. [​IMG]

    Kyle's post and Bruce's response was the funniest thing I've read all day! Almost made me forget about my flu-like symptoms (probably just a cold).

    I just added everybody in this thread to my 'ignore' list, and forwarded the names to everybody else in the secret 'ignore' club (we've got a couple thousand members now!).

    Speaking of paranoia, how come I get asked for password to just read "I work for the FBI now"?

    We Canadians need to know!

    I never, never, never use the ignore feature, ever!!
    I want to see what EVERYONE is saying. I think this forum is moderated well enough that trolls and mean people are kept at bay.
    I enjoy the good with the bad. The posts and threads would seem incomplete with someone on ignore. I think it should be removed. IMO
    Why is this thread authors name blanked out and no post available? [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Just kidding John, I don't think anyone would ignore you, you are a cool guy, who always has something nice or interesting to say.[​IMG]
    Remember when I went on the Drew Barrymore tangent? I wonder if I am on anyones ignore list after that. [​IMG]
