“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.

I am NOT certain its humblegunner but a regular will throw out things like this - On a Limbaugh thread: “Is that blowhard still alive?”

That's albaby's line. He stole it from me.

Nope. I never used the word ‘ban’. That’s up to the moderators. But, you knew that...

Did you ask nicely about the availability or possibility first or did you just now shoot off your mouth off about it?

How about making a business case and politely requesting it to the mods, Jim or whoever handles all that here?

“I know where I am. Everyone who donates one penny to FR pays for a format that we all deal with whether we like it or not. Maybe it won’t cost much at all to implement a filter! Who knows? Well, we won’t, because no one is gonna spend 10 seconds looking into it.”

I am going to give you a clue, bub.
(Climbing on soapbox)

This software - despite your perceptions that it lacks the bells and whistles of Facebook or MyButt such as the exalted BOZO filter is pretty damn good. It allows a user to know when he is pinged and can follow threads of discussions within posts to their ultimate end.

There is little or no canned forum software that does that. Been there, done that.

The support required behind the scenes to monitor posts and signups is enough to drive most adults slowly nuts. Been there, done that.

Customizing the software to allow bozo filters would add a layer of complexity that I expect the current management has already investigated and dropped.

People who complain about stuff they know nothing of are always an amusement. This is your lucky day, you are almost on my auto-bozo filter.

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.

Holy cow, you truly live up to your tag line! I salute you! :^) And thanks for the giggle!

The ‘get some thick skin’ nonsense is a Mickey Mouse way of saying ‘we don’t know how to do it’.

Actually, we do know how to do it.

We even implement it from time to time...

That's is part of Jim's contribution to this thread. Free Republic does not CHOOSE to add a bozo filter.

When Admin Moderator does a pushup, Admin Moderator isn't lifting himself up - Admin Moderator is pushing the Earth down.

Admin Moderator does not sleep. Admin Moderator waits.

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Admin Moderator has allowed to live.

Outer space exists because it's afraid to be on the same planet with Admin Moderator.

Admin Moderator does not get frostbite. Admin Moderator bites frost.

Admin Moderator is so fast, he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head.

There is no such thing as global warming. Admin Moderator was cold, so Admin Moderator turned the sun up.

Admin Moderator gave Mona Lisa that smile.

Admin Moderator can slam a revolving door.

Admin Moderator is the reason why Waldo is hiding.

Faster than a speeding bullet... more powerful than a locomotive ... able to leap tall buildings in a single bound ... yes, these are some of Admin Moderator's warm-up exercises.

I will say this - the reason for the request seems obvious enough...

I admit that more than once I have lamented the lack of “ignore” capabilities on Free Republic, but you know, over my years on FR, I’ve changed my mind and now find that I agree with the Admin Mod — they’re for wimps. The problem is that on FR, you have to get down to the bottom of the post to see the poster’s name, which is what tells you whether or not to ignore the post. So I’d like it if Free Republic’s forum had a “To” and “From” line at the TOP of posts, making it easier to just skip and move on to the next one when you know the poster is somebody not worth reading. As it is now, you don’t know who wrote the post until you look at the bottom.
