    Well, I advise adding some way of not giving a notif for likes from an ignored user, because this is unkind.

    So it's a boast of sorts that you've found your way around those who thought that they could stop you

    Fools that they were

    There shouldn't be a notification, BTW. So, that would mean Khan and Vivec don't have me on ignore anymore.

    Okay, so maybe I was thinking about this wrong. There's a couple of users you've had previously-reached agreements with for Mutual Ignore. But you tend to interact with their posts anyway, which I assumed was because of impulse-control issues and the very obvious Show Ignored Content button. I was thinking that this would improve that. But I can't make sense of this.

    No shit you can still see all of anyone's posts if you really want to. There's no way to have a working Internet forum where you can't bypass that stuff and yet we still have user registration at all. But... What I don't get is why you feel the need to continue poking people who are visibly distressed by it. The entire point of the mutual ignore thing is to reduce unwanted poking.

    Hey here's an idea, how about you don't use me to prove your point, and instead just contact seebs? I don't like being an non-consenting performer in your stupid performance art.

    There's no good faith at all with any of this is there

    It's just out and out snide-aggression and community undermining from Alix's camp is what I'm getting

    What happened yo, we were cool and bonded over cute fights

    Ahhh. So effectively preventing this, the asshole move of shoving oneself into others' lives just to assert that one can, requires blocking every subaccount.

    as para said, it's possible to like even when every sub is ignored.

    So it turns out I basically hate the subaccount feature because it doesn't get included when handling ignore lists.

    Isn't that obvious? They feel a need to poke people because they want to enact aggression and superiority games. There's no good faith or mutual wellness-seeking in this response.

    Okay, but when an important part of a discussion is missing from a thread, of fucking course I'm gonna want to look at it.

    How does that work? I am confused.

    Aaaah.

    If you turned it off though, the rpers would be screwed since we've done so much with subs. But I can see how it's also a problem.

    Now there's an image that'll haunt my dreams. I've probably seen a goatse image that ends like that.
