I had one person on my ignore list for a while.
I had a big ol fight with them in the pit and then everytime I posted a reply to them in another thread they would jump all over me. I hadn’t really paid too much attention to usernames in a discussion and so I sometimes forgot that I was addressing someone who was on the opposite side of an emotional issue in another thread.
I post a lot in the pit and my personal rule is that it’s the place where you can be mean and nasty about things but then start over when you leave the thread. Kinda like lawyers do in trials - Go for blood in the court, then go for a beer with the opponent when its over. Others don’t share my philosophy.
I ignored the poster for about a month so I wouldn’t reply to any of their posts and then removed my ignore later. That poster an I have since had civil discussions.
