“Do not post to me” - Repost
Free Republic | 10/06/09 | Admin Moderator

Posted on 10/06/2009 3:55:51 PM PDT by Admin Moderator

We've received many requests from freepers requesting that other freepers not post to them. There are several problems with this.

1. It's impossible for us to enforce.
2. We don't have the time to enforce these requests.
3. We don't have the software to keep track of these requests.
4. Thick skin helps.
5. Ignore the poster, if you don't reply, they won't reply.

Free Republic does not need a bozo filter, bozo filters are for wimps.

Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop. Conservative FReepers would not.

First thread.

We are still receiving ARs from people who don't like the responses they on threads. If you don't want to be on a pinglist, fine, ask to be removed, but do not expect us to enforce a "do no post to me" demand.

Ignore the post, ignore the poster.

Sometimes stalkers are amusing.

Mine are. It never occurred to me to cry about it.

You guys do a great job, it is appreciated.

You were no help at all when that team of scantily-clad supermodels parachuted in and kidnapped me.

I want to thank you for that.

Speaking of which, we have an unwritten rule. Do not throw rocks at bullies and cry to mommy and daddy when they throw some back.

I have tried a bozo filter. The grounds went right through it and the big tuft of red hair was a pain to push into the that plastic cup thing. The coffee was awful. I don't recommend it.

There’s nothing wrong with providing software with ‘ignore’ capabilities. The ‘get some thick skin’ nonsense is a Mickey Mouse way of saying ‘we don’t know how to do it’. There should be a way to filter (or block) posters that I don’t want to hear from. If it takes an extra Freepathon to pay for it, so be it. This is the 21st century, stop making it sound like putting up with a few persistant assholes is some kind of noble exercise. It is not.
