    Ignore List

    Some posters here have earned the distinction of having made it to an ignore list. To make it to my ignore list all one has to do is continue to post nonsense and fail to actually participate in discussions with substance on an ongoing basis.

    I am willing to discuss and even debate issues with anyone of differing views as long as the opposing view actually has a view to state and is willing to defend as well as make claims.

    Otherwise, I am not interested in waisting my time and will just put those folks on my ignore list. Once on my ignore list I simply will not respond to those particular individuals.

    From what I understand others here also have their own ignore lists.

    Is this like when you get divorced you make a public announcement? Maybe you should have started it; Being of sound mind and body or something.

    So what is it we are to discuss in this thread? Are you making a statement and want someone to beg you to reconsider? Put them on your list and move on.

    No, not a thing. Must be that new "ignore" feature. There is so much less static and bad back-ground noise now!

    Don't worry Printer. You are not on my ignore list. I take a personal amount of satisfaction by ignoring you directly.

    As I was saying, Hugh, that ignore feature is handy perhaps but not really needed.

    It seems like the OP is the one being ignored. After searching the word 'ignore' , I find it is the root word for ignorance. Here is a good explanation.


    Ignorance


    Although it is frequently heard that to be ignorant is to be stupid...once again, this equation doesn't hold up. One could say that stupidity has more to do with an absence of abilities (either in an absolute sense or in a relative sense of being uneducated).

    Ignorance, however, has more to do with not paying attention to something which could be paid attention to...its root word is ignore. To ignore something has little to do with the ability to understand it. Therefore, the opposite of ignorance isn't intelligence...its awareness.


    Lack of or diminished awareness can have its roots in just not knowing about it, being trained/conditioned to not pay attention, or simply the lack of desire to know. Whatever the source...the result is the same, ignorance (even though ability may be present or may be developed). One can never understand something that one ignores. Awareness can lead to understanding...in fact, it is its prerequisite...but without any guarantees.
