In the sphere of thought, absurdity and perversity remain the masters of the world, and their dominion is suspended only for brief periods.

LOL! I'm a former Marine and still can maintain a high PFT score. Definitely not bragging, that's a fact. I like to joke and have fun like everyone elso on this large, rotating ball of electromagnetism....I also like to get to facts and avoid babyism. As far as women are concerned I've never had a problem. Here's a tip....actually be interested in what they are talking about...and ACTUALLY listen....Ciao!
The Tao of YFC......

I don't think that I would like an "ignore" button. There are too many times when I would be tempted to push it on myself, and just spin off into cyberspace.

Granted, a newbie looking for help might read an entire thread before making up his/her mind but once they've pulled the trigger, everyone with a negative opinion would be put on ignore. So many make the statement that we are all adults and should make up our own minds but being an adult does not mean we are all knowing. There are people here actually looking for help, and we should provide them our opinions. Pharm, I'm not taking issue with you, your one of people I hold in high esteem here (except that you were instrumental in getting my buddy Baaaaart banned, that upset me) you just supplied the soapbox for me to stand on. Actually when I look at it, it's kind of a weak argument, isn't it? Oh well, on to the next front!
I agree with what you're saying, but I think the issue may be getting confused here.
My understanding of an "ignore" feature would be that if I press [ignore] that I specifically would not be able to see that person's posts but everyone else would. That way anyone who wants to see everything would be able to, but I would have the option to not view certain posters.
I think that people are mistaking "ignore" as this: if I (or anyone) "ignores" someone, that nobody can see that post. If this is the case, then I'm against it. JMHO though.
I found out I have an ignore button on my keyboard, it's the spacebar.
The easy way to ignore the bashers is to do exactly that. Don't respond to their distressing rants. Just like in real life. Most of these people just like to read themselves talk.
Many people here get way too emotional regarding certain stocks. That's where the conflict comes in. I'm pretty sure the most successful people in the markets have disciplined themselves to divorce emotion.
The lesson here is 'Don't fall in love with a stock'. Loving a penny stock is akin to falling in love with a hooker, it might be fun at first but after it's done f***ing you it'll just leave you broke.
BTW, I'm netiher for or against an ignore feature. If I had an ignore button I would use it to ignore bashers, pumpers and mostly myself.
i think the best way to ignore someone is not to respond to their input. if you invest in something though, its good to know what is out there for people to react to that could affect your investment. read but don't respond.
you give someone power just by recognizing them. if you post well founded opinions and facts with links that you find will help your opinion and don't make it personal, someone pumping or bashing using baseless opinion will soon be recognized for their poor ability to predict.
i realize how hard it is to remain unflustered and factual, and have learned the hard way to try not to make or respond to insulting personal comments.
