    Look at the top of any page. See your user name in the dark blue bar ? Put your cursor over your user name. When you do you will see this -


    Then simply click on the People You Ignore link. Once there, add the user name/s of your choice.

    I looked over the thread that Meow Cat posted and thought it was a request for information, I had no idea that he may have been a troll or what ever...of course I am not the brightest bulb in the pack, just still learning...

    I was hoping Bud or Corgi would chase the cat away.
    I used the ignore button anyways ... I have 5 ppl on it now.

    I think it would be fun to see whose ignore list I am on. I can think of a couple of people I have annoyed to no end.

    Bud likes cats, though he is afraid of them when they sit by the door, he goes to the other door and barks to go out or come in...funny guy.

    You can also click on a user name. The window that pops up will have an ignore button.
    I don't have anyone on ignore but will not reply to stupid post most of the time.

    As a retired Special Ed teacher and police officer, I have encountered numerous people that are "different" and I try to remember them when reading some of the posts. Some of the members are from outside of the United States, others may have mental issues or tip the bottle too much, making them difficult to work with, but if we remember what people make up the world, we can deal with the oddities.
    I used to teach my daughter not to get upset with bad drivers but imagine that driver was her grandfather, who became a terrible driver in his old age, and it was easier to let go of the anger.

    Mountain Man, I could not agree with you more if I tried...people have different issues and all should be treated with respect, when possible.
    When I was a rookie Cop, I was assigned to work the Bowery with a older Bowery Officer and while we walked through the sad scenes of people in the grasps of desperation, sleeping in doorways and on the sidewalks, begging for money for their next drink. The older Officer said to me.." Kid when you work down here remember to treat each person just as you would want to be treated if it were you". I never forgot that and tried to follow it throughout my 32 years in law enforcement. It worked well for me in most cases and I try to do that in Coin Talk. When I encounter a rude or bad driver I wave and smile at them and allow them to make whatever move it is that they want in traffic, I find that most wave back.
    Thanks for reminding me..:)

    When I first saw Meow, I got very irritated and responded in a very unfriendly way, but I notice the cat is using its litter box better now...just an idiosyncrasy.

    I stay gone for a few months and the whole place has not changed a bit. Who is this feline ya'll speak of? Is there a week or so of reading entertainment hidden somewhere?
  20. NYandW

    NYandW Makes Cents!

    I'd like to return to GDJMSP's original post with his thoughts in mind. One of my very early posts here in Oct 2015, or so, was greeted with some "nonsense" about nyandw should be NYO&W (the fallen flag railroad) and I was being chastised like a child for this error. NYandW is a model railroad and the use of "and" rather then "&" is due to the internet issues with the ampersand. This is typical of some smug members that enjoy the sarcastic, cute, "snarky"or innuendo put downs due to superior knowledge. GDJMSP's advise/input seems to warrant consideration. Rise above the "newbie" and troll posts as the snide "put downs" can offend others, maybe. I'm still here, but how many others have you sent away with boorish behavior? Thank you for reading. Best, Steve

    Like the meow guy, I give rude, insulting or annoying members 3 chances to prove they are not trolls and are receptive to learning. When they prove they are not receptive, it means they don't want my help...and I then refuse to waste any more effort for them...Spark
