kew1 saidFrom this thread's title I thought you were going to put yourself on ignore.
LOL, me too! I had to pause a minute. I suppose "...of this OTHER thread..." would be a bit clearer.
But amusing semantics aside, I dunno. And I'm one of the "60+ crowd" to which he refers, so I guess I have as much right as anyone to be annoyed by it.
It's true as noted above that commenting perpetuates a thread. But frankly, some of the clever replies he generates are so entertaining I will read the thread just for them, and get a good laugh, even if half the time I can't even understand what his OP is saying in the first place.
So on balance I find it harmless and I haven't blocked him, even if as a geriatric I got generically slandered in the thread in question.
