IGNORE button in Forums ~ reinstate~!

QVC Webbie:   Lately, most discussions in 'Q Talk' and 'Community Chat' seem to draw comments that are completely out-of-bounds.    Healthy discussions are welcome, but lately, posters are vehemently rude.

Re: IGNORE button in Forums ~ reinstate~!

The mods have stated (on more than one occasion) that the new forum does npt have that option.  It is just not available,

 

The best solution is to be an adult and simply not to respond  those we find annoying.

Hello, cottageHill and welcome. Smiley Happy

 

 

Unfortunately, the moderators said they can't install the ignore button on this forum because this forum doesn't come with the software to install an ignore function.

 

 

The Community Chat has pretty much always been that way. I think the only thing to do is not post there. People will be mean to you for no good reason and then blame you for it.

Same song over and over but unless they use a different program, it's not going to happen.  When you see a name, why can't you just pass over it?

In recent weeks it has gotten worse.  I've noticed a trend from a couple of "honored" contributors:  they make a baiting post that goes against what most of the people in the thread have said, and when someone responds or questions, they come back with something like, "Don't respond to my posts!" or "Don't talk to me!" or "I don't have to explain anything to you!"  They sound like they're in grade school, and I think that sort of negative dialogue doesn't add anything positive to the "community."  We know the moderators aren't going to offer "ignore," but they do have the capability of permanently banning the ones who seem to live for stirring the pot.

I can do that "ignore" function very well on my own. I DO NOT need a Nanny State forum, suppression of speech nor need a grade school hallway monitor. I realize one must have a certain level of confidence and thick skin to even be on social media. We are adults here and can choose or not choose to engage in discourse, we can open or not open a topic we feel is against our sensitivities. I think sometimes we become too dependant on someone else to fullfill ALL of our own nanny needs when we should be quite capable to doing such ourselves. Since we DO NOT have the capability to private message we have no fear of individual side lined harrassment. The QVC Team has been good at addressing any real complaints.

@wildcat fan, for whatever reason, while the moderators may have the capability to ban posters, for some reason they don't seem to have permission.

 

I'm not one who thinks every disagreeable poster should be banned; I've explained my individual ideas on banning before, but for reasons we won't ever know, the moderators (by which I mean QVC) are not banning outright trolls except in rare instances. They're also not banning (and for all we know may not even be checking) posters who are very likely to be those with multiple nics and/or IDs created for the purpose of pot-stirring and pitchfork-waving. So if they're not banning the truly obvious people, I can't see them banning the merely unpleasant. And I don't believe it's moderator's choice.

What's out-of-bounds to one person is calm and reasonable to another. I responded to a very wild comment the OP posted today. My reply was factual and not insulting at all. Her post was removed for being Off Topic.

In reading these boards, I've found that most complaints about being nasty or inappropriate are nothing more than a difference of opinion and people are reading more into a message than is there.  Why do people let an opposing post by an anonymous person get to them?  It just doesn't make sense to me.  

 

Yes, occasionally there are out of bounds comments but they are very few.   I know one poster who comes across very snarky no matter and I usually pretend to be an adult and move on.  

 

You can't control others but you certainly can control your reaction.  Just move to the next post you want to read.  Let.it.go.
