FYI, I also learned something interesting yesterday. I tried the "ignore" feature once in the past, just to see what it did. Then, it showed a post by the member just like all the others, but had a message where his post would have been that said something like "this content not shown because the poster is a moron." I'm not sure if that was exactly it. :D But it showed a post, and just didn't show what was said.

Yesterday I tried it again for only a couple minutes but it did something very different. It completely removed the posts. So one page that had 10 posts but half of them by one member suddenly was a very short page, with only the other peoples post. No message about missing a post, or removing content or anything.

Since that wasn't what happened last time, and not what I've read others describe, I "ignored" him again and it did the same thing. All of his posts were missing and nothing to even indicate that he posted. Undid "ignore" and they all came back.

Is this new? Board software change, perhaps? Or was God looking out for my blood pressure?
There's a very small "Show Ignored Content" link near the bottom right of the page (same row as the pagination links) if you really feel like subjecting yourself to things your prior self knew were better to block.

That's the way it works on an ebike site I'm on. Can't see a thing about what the offender said. Nada.
I've never used "Ignore" before a couple of weeks ago on that site.
Tempted here.
Yes, but this is not how it worked last time. Last time the whole thing to the left was there, just like this post, and in the block I'm typing now, it would show just the "content removed because the poster is a moron." Yesterday, all his posts and any indication of such, were just gone.

Tell that to the olympic athlete who tested positive and his lifetime of training is wasted.

Yeah, and it's ONLY because his country fell for the conspiracy, right? ;)

Oh, and the money printing machine called the NFL, now saying you forfeit the game and lose AND the players won't get paid their salary for that game, if you can't play due to covid... because cancelling games is good for business, right?

I mean, to those who think this is a scam and a conspiracy, you've got to admit it's a pretty damn impressive one if Olympics and the NFL will cancel events, remove players, cancel games, etc. Those are two pretty big entities to be buying in this strongly without some proof there is a real reason to do so, don't ya think? (The last three words, being whatcha call "ree-tor-i-cal," phonetically speaking).

Man, I stay away from this thread for 17 hours and I missed 4 pages!

CCR you should follow kinggutterbaby on Instagram. You may learn something about Covid and research. Plus, she seems pretty rad.

We just need to avoid discussing guitars and amps :)

Nah, we both pretty much like similar guitars and amps. The details that we disagree over aren't life-changing. Let's not sweat the small stuff.

Life is too short for strife.

It works a couple different ways for me. For the most part, if I have someone on ignore, I don't see a post from them - the numbering just skips over that post - and there's the "Show Ignored Content" link that @Ovibos mentioned. But sometimes I'll see the user's name and avatar with a post that says "You're ignoring content from this user" or some such thing. That seems to happen when it's the most recent post.

On my phone, I don't see the post numbers unless I turn it to landscape, so no indication that I'm missing anything.

All this yesterday was from a PC. Maybe the last time I checked it I was on the ipad.

I cannot believe you are all still arguing with the person who stole their avatar off the internet and then claimed they made it:

If I ignore someone in real life, it’s as if they don’t exist. I’m happy for an internet ignore to work the same way.

Start your morning with "Wisdom of Clashcityrocker" - "No, the people that are questioning this aren't ignorant. They actually look into things. Now you see the test is bogus. Hey we have known that for a long time. Would you listen? Hell no."

OK, lets get this straight here...the PCR test is not bogus. Such tests might not be able to differentiate between covid and influenza very well, but so what? Does that mean all PCR tests showing positive covid infections are wrong? No. Lets be overly generous and say every single test ever done is using a PCR type, which is not the case, but for this hypothetical lets just say it. We have 194,000,000 known contracted cases in the world at this time. If even 30% turn out to be flu related, that leaves you with 135,800,000. Still quite a bit of people. None of these are likely and even barely remote possibilities. Many of the PCR tests could have been accurate, and there are many other tests being used, in fact there are over 380, add to it we have better testign methods now and one-at-a-time nasal swabs my not be the most time-effective method any longer. That's science, things change. Deal.

Lets also look into the mortality rates, since you have a hard on for labeling covid as a "scamdemic". Here is the ratio as it stands....influenza infects an estimated 1 billion people each year. Covid has infected 194 million. OK, looks like much ado about nothing, right? Influenza kills an estimated 250,000-650,000 each year worldwide. In the same amount of time, covid killed 4.6 MILLION people. So if you contract flu or covid...

Flu: You have a 1 in 1538 to 1 in 4000 shot of death
Covid: You have a 1 in 42 shot of death.

If I presented you with a piano with 42 keys, and I told you one of them will instantly kill you, how would you feel about playing Chopsticks?

I suggest you read this article--> Click me even though you wont cuz mah conspuracee!
Without using scare tactics or citing facebook nutters, it logically explains what revoking the emergency use authorization means.

I know CCR, you still cant figure 5/0, so none of this will make sense to you.
See the problem with your lies, damn lies and statistics is you really can't test for Covid. It could be the flu it could be a cold. Just because hospitals started putting down everything under the sun as covid doesn't mean it is. I thought you said trust the science? Oops it changed we really didn't know what we we're talking about. Get the vax it's "safe and effective" Well look at this https://vaxpain.us/

Yes it is an impressive conspiracy. But the people that don't want to move on from it and want it to be the new normal are the new abnormal.

Ok, moron, Vaers is not a validated site. It’s like Yelp, you can post anything you like there, true, or not.

With all respect, who are these physicians? What is their evidence and what specifically are they claiming? What about the vaccine(s) is/are not "legitimate"? To say the covid vaccines are "bulls#@t" is a nebulous statement until there is substantiation. I will grant there is much about the vaccination's effects that we do not know. There will be undoubtedly many side effects both predicted and unforeseen to come, but that information was in the public domain and I knew that risk when I got mine. The alternative risk though is playing Russian Roulette from contracting the real thing. This is a crisis, and there clearly was not time to do all the proper studies and testing to fully understand the effects, but again what choice do we have? You either get in front of a viral outbreak, or you don't.

With full certainty, the vast majority of medical professionals will agree a vaccine, even with the unknowns, is a safer bet than going without it. I even know a few personally. They are not paid actors or in the pocket of big pharma, they are actually trying to help us even when we don't want to help ourselves. Every nurse or medical tech I have spoken to tells me the same thing: get the vaccine. Why do their opinions not matter? In any case, I'm not concerned with opinions, I am concerned with evidence. Right now, the evidence is clear the vaccinations are working, and vaccines in general work.

Well that's the whole problem isn't it? When ANY dissenting video comes out, it gets taken down. When any groups of doctors come together and release another video, it gets taken down too and they all get branded as lunatic extremists. You cannot so much as post a documented fact challenging the mainstream narrative, or even post a dissenting OPINION on Facebook without it getting flagged or "fact checked" right before the post gets censored or deleted and you spend 30 days in Facebook jail. So, there's no crime if all the evidence is erased, right? Is that the world we live in? Is it 1936 Germany again? Do what you are told. Believe what you are told to believe, never ask questions and never challenge government which is your new almighty god.

Okay, how about this. How many hours of C-Span do you watch, or do you (any of you reading) swallow hook, line & sinker everything that CNN tells you? How about watching DOCTOR RAND PAUL relentlessly exposing "Doctor" Fauci's complete nonsense for what it is. Complete B.S. They can't delete congressional hearings as it is by law public record. Start there and then go see how many of these videos you can still find being circulated through underground channels.

Ok, did you ride the short bus to school? This is actually SOME of the vaccine injured-killed. Not all get reported. There is a whistleblower reporting she saw 45,000 deaths reported.

Yes, it's an evil conspiracy. Not even a theory.
