I feel like I've ignored almost half the people here over the past few months. Have you increased the frequency of which you ignore other users?

People need to be thick skinned on this app. Your comments will be challenged. Sometimes constructively. Sometimes childishly. When someone starts to be immature, I stop conversing with them and hope they grow up tomorrow.

I haven't ignored anyone, but judging by the comments, I now suspect that I may have been ignored by some people.

I've only ignored one and that's because he doesn't debate issues, he attacks people.

I have never ignored anyone. It is the difference of opinions that make this such a great app.

I never ignore because of a difference of opinion. It's virtually always because of how someone treats other people.

I think I've ignored 4 or 5. My strategy to avoid the meanies lately is to mostly avoid the political polls. I vote and move on. There's very little new in most of the comments.

There are some users who want to argue. They write polls and comments that bait each other, and they also jump at the bait too. It's why they come here. Sadly newer people are distressed if they try to participate. It happened before.

I recently quit following one of the most vehement insulters and fight-pickers and the noise calmed down for me a lot.

I also tell people I'm going to ignore them. Just to give them one more chance to hurl a rude comment, LOL. I also tell someone I'm unfollowing, unless it's just because I have too many polls or something.

I've only ever ignored a couple of people, but it never really lasts.

I don't understand why everyone feels the need to be a dick or why there's constant name calling. It's like dealing with a bunch of kids. I constantly look at users and wonder why they haven't been banned yet...

For quite a while I had 2 people on ignore a lot of the time. Then the disagreeableness started to get to me, & it's gone in cycles since then. If I start to get upset, I put as many people on ignore and/or unfollow them until I get some peace of

mind & stop feeling as if I'm going to explode. I don't really like doing that, so I take them off ignore (&/or re-follow) when I don't feel vulnerable. Right now I think I have 0 ignored. But I know I may not be able to keep it there.

I only have 20 followers and hardly any comments so I've never had the need to ignore ppl.
