It makes life much less stressful, and Literotica much more pleasurable.
May I ask how to initiate an "ignore" list?

Thank you.

OK, you got me! That is/was my response to the peaceful Zen Master, before I became more Zen and decided to just ignore him.

I no longer swat flies.

What's another word for cliché? . . .that isn't trite or hackneyed?
What if there weren't any hypothetical questions?

Click on the name of the poster (upper left corner). A drop down menu will appear. Click on Ignore.

If I do that, all I get is:
  • My Erotic Tale
  • View Public Profile
  • Send a private message to My Erotic Tale
  • Find all posts by My Erotic Tale
  • Add My Erotic Tale to Your Buddy List
These do not seem to be appealing options. The last one is particularly horrifying.

I have found an "ignore" function in the controls. Can I add this name in manually and have it work?

Go to your User CP - you'll find the link at the far left hand side of the blue band on the top of the page, In there you'll see listed "update buddy/ignore list.\".

Yes, you can. (I just did.)

Never mind. I entered the name manually and, while it doesn't eliminate all reference to the person, it eliminates his text.

You're right. It is much more calming. I liken it to hitting the mute button when an obnoxious commercial comes on the television. I can still see that the commercial is there, but I can't hear it and that helps keep my blood pressure down.

Thank you, Reltne, for the suggestion.

Your first PM to me was negative, remember? Did you forget? Didn't quite understand why I got an "E"; didn't think it was worth it, pointed out you didn't understand why I should have it for the other one either.

How about it, odious? Am I right? Do you owe just about everybody around here an apology? Guess you just ain't man enough to admit you're wrong sometimes?

This is quite another thing dimbo, I responded to your PM's. GET REAL. I am not going to let you, you little shit, keep making these false accusations. I LEAVE my name, and am not afraid to defend what I say. You seem to degenerate into this type of response. Never a direct response.

tsk, tsk, deleting comments, if they don't quite fit into your own self imposed image of greatness.

Ever see me start countless threads, because someone left a comment I didn't like. How many times you do it?

Here is your world view, anyone you think you can lead is fine, anyone who swats back, persecutes you.

Grow Up.

and what is this association you are trying to infer by mentioning me with Sack ?
I've been alot tougher on Sack then you, he seems not to be so hell-bent on trying to portray himself as being persecuted, what does that tell you Ego-boy?

1201 I delete every comment you post because you cannot seem to post a comment with out spilling this same negativity that your spreading here and every post you post toward me. Your in a love to hate me mode there fore I ignore your old cranky ass, what bothers you is that I will not listen to your TEACHINGS that you seem to have this need to try and teach every one else how to write and you have no credentials other than the ego of being able to tell others how to write. Your a disillusioned old man with hatred in his heart so...I take reltines advice and ignore your old cranky butt. simple as that.

You and sack play the name changing game and have this uncontrolable urge to tell people how to rewrite their poetry, go find somebody that will believe your bullshit, I have seen your analizing of poems and your not any help to me. So I leave you be, you just can't seem to take the fact I ignore your advice and take others advice over yours, get over it.

and apologize for what, your ignorance? I think my ability to over look you bothers you and I am sorry that your mentally bent like the hind leg of a dog. <grin>

No what bothers me is your corruption of the English language, your false accusations, your attempts at demonization. Listen up dip shit, get this straight. I do not vote without leaving my name.
And you are they asshole always shoting your month off about "teaching" but when an opportunity comes along where you might learn something, no you become the "defender of the unique" don't you realize how absurd THAT is?

So what, you accuse the "rainman" of being me, second person if I remember, why? Because of what a bit of jealousy on your part a good writer gets a bit of attention, I take that as a compliment. Rainman may not like it that's his ax not mine.

Now then you infer (twice I might add) that I leave low votes, sorry, I'm coming after your sorry ass.

You have a bit of a history of not handling criticism well, why is that? You also have a history of distortions, don't you? Evasions, face it. I think you owe a bit of apology to alot more people than I, namely everyone that writes better than you and offered advice/and or criticism.

"I ignore your advice and take others advice over yours" ~ this I just laugh at, particulary after the last score and comment, was seconded, wasn't it?

"spilling this same negativity that your spreading here and every post you post toward me" ~ whine, whine, whine ~ negativity, your code word for anyone that doesn't think you are wonderful, grow up, zen pup.

Thank you Lauren for mentioning my Five Wagons of Hickory Nuts, and for those who read and felt it -- It is an important poem for me. coming a long way and still so far to go. I appreciate your comments and reading.

I also want to thank Lauren for her review, and those who commented and e-mailed me about today's poem. It is still evolving, and I've put it up on the "Thin-Skinned" thread, if anyone would care to throw their two cents in. I would appreciate that.

I think MojoCat is hoping to do reviews today, so I am going to hold off for now. I'll check back later and review if he is unable to do so.

In the meantime: those Xmas cards aren't going to write themselves. Get busy!

I've been playing for the last couple of months an online game called NationStates, where every day you're asked one or two policy-defining questions and then sit back and see how twisted your little empire turns out.

Tonight's question is one that deserves the attention of all of us, I think:

Hyndeland Decides:
"Give Us Money!" Quoth the Poet


The Issue

The National Poetry Society of Hyndeland is demanding government-funded programs to promote the arts, especially poetry.


The Debate
1. "We need government help to promote culture." says Jack Licorish, chairperson of the National Poetry Society of Hyndeland. "Poetry is the soul of our nation, the very pulse of humanity! We will ultimately be judged according to our contribution to artistic enlightenment. In other words, please provide funding for our humble mission to bring the beauty of poetry to the masses!"

2. "Artists and poets should support themselves, like everyone else," replies Chastity Winters, spokesperson for the Capitalism Now Party. "The suffering taxpayers should be given a break. In fact, we should abolish all government subsidies for special interest groups."

3. "Poets--who needs them?!" scoffs Johann Love, Chairperson Emeritus of the Troglodyte Coalition. "These long-haired troublemakers should all be lined up against the wall and shot! That would be far more entertaining than reading some dumb poems!"

The Government Position

The government has yet to formalize a position on this issue.
Any opinions?

I think it is persenal and everyone should be allowed to have his or her own opinion and besides I write for myself from my heart and soul.
