    Hell yeah. Being oft unquoted and skipped on "Guy Above You" threads is par for the course for this habitual thread closer. When I take unannounced RJ breaks several months long given major life traumas no one notices. When someone else lets his pictures go private within an hour there are panicked threads expressing concern. I have better luck being validated outside cyberworld.

    I only have a few on ignore. They are mentally unstable and I dont need their jiberish getting the way of other people. But I think its less than 6 people. Im guessing I am on a few ignore lists icon_biggrin.gif

    FilmGuy18_notporn saidI totally sometime feel ignored especially if I message someone.

    FYI: If I message you, it doesn't really mean that I want to get in your pants. Sure sometimes my messages my seem a bit random, but if I message you its because I think I might have something interesting to talk to you about.

    I have to say that I sometimes feel like this. Throwing a sincere compliment or hello that doesn't even get a 'thanks' makes me feel pretty ignored. As for forum postings, I can't tell you how many I've closed down with the last comment. Maybe I'm a tad bit sensitive but, yeah, I feel sometimes like an outsider on here.

    I think the ignore function is only useful to remove clutter from those who are quite voluminous, especially if using a smartphone. Otherwise I just use the ignore function in my head. Those who advertise, seemingly often, about how many they have on ignore are, as someone suggested above, demonstrating their insecurity, and I would add low self-esteem. Pretty obvious in their posts.

    Given some the lengths others will go to to 'get even' with someone, I think the ignore button is not used enough by those people..

    I've only blocked one person, and that was because he was threatening me. I wouldn't want to ignore anyone based on a forum post because I like to know what people are saying, even if I disagree with them. And if anyone ignores me, I just take the big leap and assume they're terribly jealous ... of my personality icon_cool.gif

    For whatever reason, you don't really expose much of your inner life on here. So no one feels that they 'know' you.

    Who?

    ^^ This pretty much sums it up for me.

    I don't really seek validation so much as I'd like to be reminded that I exist sometimes. I have a better time with that IRL. =/

    eh, i think can be hit or miss sometimes. but i also don't get butthurt about stuff posted or not posted in forums. Its nice to be a part of a community but can be daunting when the "popular kids" ig you. I guess the people that I want to, I talk to. Those that don't wanna socialize, I probably am better off for not talking to them anyway.

    Don't have anyone on ignore. Usually just don't bother reading some posts depending on whose it is.


    Because........

    MuchoMasQueMusculo saidMost of the bitchuz in constant need of validation on this site don't even appear as though they work out.


    Guilty.

    I enjoy the complimentary threads. It fits my nature. I would rather praise than tear somebody down, which is a sick habit for a few on RJ.

    Also...criticism about validation and attention seeking? icon_mad.gif ON RJ???? The picture of narcissism and superficiality? (The blind don't think RJ is anything special.) Those are as much a part of RJ as anything else. Whoring for MOTD votes, flamewars, posing in the mirror with muscles bulging; packages up against the camera lens... icon_confused.gif

    We are human. We seek connection with other people. Some seek validation for some aspect of themselves. I'm an ectomorph ( I'll never look like MUCHO) and I use my words and ideas to connect. Those with muscular, fit bodies want validation for their hard work and dedication, so they try to connect with others that way.

    I'll admit to seeking validation because I am seeing how my self perception is different from others perceptions of me. I throw myself out there to see what comes back at me. Years of hyper-criticism and neglect skewed my self-esteem.

    For what it's worth.
