Ignore

docholladay

We have the same option available for this as we have for the stories we don't like.

Don't read them and don't reply to them. Just skip over them to the next message or whatever. If that is the only message that is showing as unread that little check mark at the top left or bottom left will mark all unread messages as read. I just refuse to read certain ones and as a result will not reply to them.

Ayup. That works.

Shunning always gets the message across and is a powerful plot driver in erotica.

And has been used for centuries by both societies and religions.

I know you're being facetious, but it's had a terrific record in stopping the spread of Protestants denominators, the spread of Christianity earlier, the sexual revolution more lately and also the spread of secularism across the world for the past several hundred years.

In the 50s, the 'burn rock-and-roll albums' did more to promote the naciente recording industry than anything else did.

"Banned in Boston" has long been a sales pitch for books.

That is why a simple ignore works better. The decision is an individuals choice. And like the stories listings, the best option for something we don't like is to skip over it or ignore it.

I ignore things all the time (like "50 Shades of Grey" and Donald Trump, but so far it's had no effect whatsoever). A badly written book is one thing, but if you feel strongly that it represents the demise of everything good in the entire universe (what a bleak worldview of the Devine), then it's a akin to ignoring Idi Amin (instead of naming the more likely comparison in the hopes of continuing the thread a little longer).

There is no reason for that comparison to end the tread.

How about Hitler ignoring Gandhi instead?

@Not_a_ID

Some can never be totally ignored. I was mainly pointing out that its a valid option. Its also an option which would tend not to cause problems. The fact is no one can count on someone else to decide for them what to respond to. I have learned many lessons the hard way.

That makes no sense as a response to what you quoted.

Gandhi's non-violent protest worked because the British were hesitant to simply slaughter him and his followers. Hitler and or the Nazis in general would have had no such qualms and against the Nazis, Gandhi's movement would not have lasted more than a couple of weeks.
