    I have never blocked anyone before but this one is just depressing.

    is there anyone else with me on this?

    I second that as anyone else would also if they are tired of this op and his
    immature personality or is that reputation. If people would stop commenting on the thread it would die. Commenting only brings it back up to the top. Thank You for starting this thread.

    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.

    Hard to understand the need to enlist others to ignore someone. IMO the mature thing to do is ignore who you want. No need for public discussion.

    Added to agree with a later message: Even if you don't mention another member by name, if the identity is clear, it really is bad form to create a thread to bash another member.

    To the OP: As much as I am against deleting threads, this is one case where that might be appropriate.

    Yes you make a valid point about the OP in said thread. However it's bad forum etiquette to make a thread bashing a separate thread. It's in bad taste too.

    It is certainly the kind of thread I really don't consider positive for this site,
    but he has the right to post what he wants, within the limits provided by RJ.
    If you don't like it.. I'd just pass reading it. I didn't spend much time on it, be assured.

    Blocking serves no purpose. The diversity of thought, language and how we engage as members is what brings each and everyone one of us back. Is he a dip shit? I would say, yes but there are plenty here who look forward to his antics. At least for the most part his stupidity offers something more than the guy above you, below, to the left and for 2011 the guy to the righticon_rolleyes.gif

    I find this thread depressing. Xanax anyone?

    Blunt truth:

    Grow some balls OP, if you want to block somebody becuase you cannot possibly help yourself from personally ignoring their posts, do so, it says more about your self-control than the person you're blocking imho, but starting a thread to gather others to join you in mob mentality fashion is, quite frankly, pathetic ...icon_lol.gif

    This thread is proof that when I take a week vacation from RJ, the amount of drama doesn't abate.

    Yes it does. It saves you the time from reading and responding to people who you perceive to be idiots. There's plenty of idiots on RJ.

    Some people learn to not respond to someone that irritates them...some never learn.
