I use the ignore function for frequent posters that don't seem to value to the discussion in forums I watch. It cuts down on the notifications I get for those forums. I do periodically go and look at the ignored postings to see if I've missed anything that would have helped my improve my understanding of how things work. So far I haven't been motivated by that to take anyone off of ignore, though I've come close a couple of times.

I guess my 30K+ posts about timeshare mean nothing because I have a different opinion of something not related to timeshare. If you don't want to see differing opinions, the COVID forum is the wrong place to be. @TUGBrian for adding that Ignore More add-on!
I like this post. Some additional thoughts from me .......

1) My day job is working in health care policy
2) I have never been to the COVID section on TUG
3) I am glad the COVID section is there to keep the COVID stuff out of the timeshare threads I read
4) There are a lot of world class timeshare experts posting on TUG. I care what they think about timeshares, and I really don't care if they are experts on COVID
5) I do think everyone should be well-educated on COVID, but TUG is not going to be the place to fix that
6) I did not know TUG had an "ignore" function before seeing this thread, but there are a few people my analog brain mostly ignores

I went through my Ignore list the other day (it isn't very big), I wondered why some of them were there and a couple others haven't been seen in a while. So I removed some. I now remember why... We have a few prolific link posters and their threads muddy the forums IMO. I know others like them, so I just hide their threads using this function.

it certainly seems to be a lost art to read something, disagree with it...and simply continue scrolling on or carrying on about your day.

nowadays its all about arguing, even when there is no chance of ever convincing someone else on the other side of most all extremely polarizing debates.
I might be a good idea that the covid subforum should have an end date or rule that the covid forum is only for travel tips and such.

The COVID Forum is what it is. It's never going to be as calm as the rest of TUG, because of the inflammatory nature of the topic. That being said, it's a heck of a lot better than having those posts spread all over TUG! I seldom visit, except as a Moderator, because I find it super annoying!!! I know that many people feel that way, but are still drawn to it like moths to a flame. So my advice is: If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen! With that being said, if you see posts that violate the TUG posting rules, please use the REPORT link. Just so you know, when you report a post, ALL TUG staffers see the report. However, that doesn't mean you will win your dispute.

I do not care to get into a debate about this, I just wanted to clarify a few things up. PEACE OUT! :hi:
Why allow fake information wherever it is on tug? Cancel it before it spreads.

Who is the arbitrator as to if something is fake or not?
