View Full Version : But...I don't *have* anyone on my ignore list!
11-17-2002, 10:21 PM
In this thread (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14382) there is a post from 10- 15- 1999 08:43 AM, and over in the message thang is "to view this post click here". When I click "here" the person's handle still isn't displayed. So I went to my user CP to delete whoever I may have put on my ignore list but, just like I thought, there wasn't anyone on my list.
This happening to anyone else?

Not to me. The software may be getting confused since the thread is so old.

Yeah, it just happened to me in MPSIMS. To the best of my knowledge, I have never put anyone on my "ignore list". For that matter, I don't know how to put anyone on an "ignore list" so I might have put them (it seems to be two different people for me) there by accident and not realized it. But somehow I doubt it.

I just had the same thing happen when viewing an older thread. All the posts that said they were from someone on my ignore list were made by people logged in as "guest". I haven't noticed this happen before today ever, and I'm pretty sure I've looked at older threads with people logged in as "guest" before with no problems. I also have no one on my real ignore list, and never have.

Same thing happened to me in Opal's thread which Arnold has just locked - must be a software glitch with older threads.

I was wondering the same thing!
Personally, I never put anybody on my ignore list. If I wanted to ignore other points of view, I would have joined a different board.

Instead of a date and time (which differs depending on user settings), could someone include the postid of a post for which this is happening?

That's the 2nd one - I can't remember the thread I was looking at previously when the 1st one happened.

I'm using Opera as my browser, and when I click to read the message the poster is identified only as "guest".

Let's see what happens after jdavis is done with his maintenance tomorrow.

Yeah I got it too on that 10K for a wife thread. I was wonder what was going on and I came to ATMB to ask about it and well, you guys beat me to it...

Me, three. I looked at that and said, "I have an ignore list? Since when?"

Has anyone noticed this problem after the Monday morning upgrade? (9:00 Chicago, Illinois, USA time, 18 November 2002)

Nope. It looks like it was fixed. The username is still blank, though.
