    I was wondering, do you have a member -maybe more- in your ignore list? You don't have to say who, unless you insist.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    But did you vote for "Yes, the whole GBAtemp"? Because I didnt, and I assume you did vote something. Unless I didn't pay attention to what I voted...

    I do not have anyone on ignore, and nobody has me on ignore either.

    You can't ignore staff I guess.

    I did have a few people ignored but they've all been either banned or no longer active, I have no one on the list anymore.

    No one on my list; I assume given my similar position I'm not on anyone else's list either (or at least not functionally). No idea if anyone had me on ignore though.

    just 2 - one cause he has just been such a freaking rascist douche, and the other for continually asking me the same question over and over and over.... and just not getting that the answer is that simple.

    I have no one on any ignore list. Even if somebody decided to lay into me for whatever reason, I wouldn't just put them on ignore. I mean, I may ignore them, but not put them in any official list to where I never see what they post ever again. Even the biggest a-hole can say something useful every once in a while, and if I put them on ignore, then I might miss what they said about something important or interesting.

    In fact, there has only ever been one person whom I felt might have needed to be put on ignore, if I was to use such a list. That person has since either been banned, or just doesn't attempt to pick on me anymore, I'm not sure which, heh. But the point is, I never put him on ignore because he actually is (or was, as the case may be) an intelligent person, he just had an abrasive attitude. Maybe he was right and I was wrong about whatever was being discussed. You can never rule out that possibility, you know what I mean?

    Now, I may be goaded into arguing with someone every once in a while, especially if they catch me on a bad day, but I try not to hate on anyone directly or hold grudges. I may hate a company, a particular game or genre of games, or even the direction a thread might be going in, but that doesn't mean I instantly hate any single person who likes things I hate or disagrees with my opinions. When it comes to things like that, I just agree to disagree and let it go, not rage on them or put them on ignore.

    When I was a mod, some may feel that I picked on them unfairly or was singling them out and punishing them. That would be incorrect because 99.9% of the time, if I saw something that warranted a modding action, I didn't even notice the name of the person I modded. I just saw something wrong, modded it as necessary and moved on. No personal feelings were applied to my actions. I try to stay that way, whether it be doling out info, arguing with someone, reporting someone for breaking rules or just goofing off in the forums, even though I'm no longer a mod. I'm only human, I have bad days or weeks. Sometimes I may become somewhat hateful with replies or posts, but it's never (at least I don't think so) directed at anyone specific, just in a general, non-personal way.

    I try to be friendly with everyone, but never get too personal. I ignore rivalries between websites, countries and religions, etc. as I see no reason to join the hate bandwagon without any basis of my own. It's like those Lamefuck NFO's....that guy picked on me and GBAtemp about whatever it was he was on about. I'm just like, meh, whatever. I'm not going to refuse to download his dump just because he's hating on me or the things I enjoy, such as GBAtemp. I'm not gonna start a hate-mongering crusade against the guy, whoever he is, just because he picked on me. I just don't worry about it. It's just the internet after all. Some people seem to get some special satisfaction by picking on people or trolling whenever they can. I'm not like that, and I hope I never become that way either.

    I am honest to a fault, that comes with consequences. I accept those consequences. If that means you hate me and feel you have to put me on ignore, so be it. But you might just miss something I had to say that actually made sense or was useful. In that case, it would be your loss.

    It's like that tune from Joe Walsh called Two Sides to Every Story.

    Here's the lyrics to that tune, in case you're not familiar:

    Well I don't know, but I've been told
    Two sides to every story
    One is right and the other is wrong
    Guess it depends which side your on
    'cause one man's blessing is another man's curse
    One man's drink is another man's thirst
    One man's pleasure is another man's pain
    One man's loss is another man's gain
    One man's lie is another man's truth
    There's two sides to every story

    -

    Well good guys bad guys all the same
    Good guys win bad guys get blamed
    I don't care what side you're on
    You might be right, you might be wrong
    And one man's freedom is another man's prison
    One man's honor is another man's shame
    One man's guilty one man isn't
    There's two sides to every story

    -

    One man's heaven is another man's hell
    One man's buy is another man's sell
    One man's day is another man's night
    One man's peace is another one's fight
    One man's loss is another one's glory
    There's two sides to every story

    ----------------------------------------------------


    Yep, that describes how I feel about it all. No ignore list exists in my eyes. And it's a nice tune too.
