I'm guessing that they're annoyed at my video posts

I've jumped up to 29 people ignoring me. It was just 25 a couple of days ago.

I don't know whether to throw another party or not.

Edited to add poll: Should I stop posting them, or what?

This is for you remaining folks, of course.

Perhaps the folks didn't have the yarbles to tell me to stop it outright.

5. I feel like such a lightweight

I've only got 14 members ignoring me.

So why do you have more hearts than I do? Is it a love/hate thing you think?

12. I hope you keep bringing us music

I have 5-7 ignoring me at all times. 8 don't want any PM's. Oh well. I have my list, too, but currently they are all set free.

13. You shouldn't take it personally.

Some people really like them. Sometimes they almost fill the whole first page of the lounge for me, and although I obviously haven't done it (I'm in this thread, afterall) I can understand the decision to put you on ignore to keep the lounge less cluttered. If I end up doing that, it wouldn't be anything about liking or not liking you, just not wanting to wade through all the threads.

It might make more sense to have like a Friday Night Video Thread and post them all there instead of a separate thread for each video.

14. I tried a single thread before

It took a long time for that single thread to load, so I stopped it.

Trust me, I tried.

17. Hmm, I didn't think about load times.

Maybe like 3 or 4 in a thread?

Or just keep doing what you're doing, and if I get too annoyed with it I might put you on ignore, but it's nothing you should feel insulted about. That's the nice thing about the internet, we can customize our experience.

Now if you were in the apartment above me blasting music nonstop, we'd have to have a serious talk!

19. I learned that one the hard way myself.

Have you figured out the maximum number of music additions can a thread handle,
before refusing to load.


I thought it was just my very old computer.

20. Keep on keeping on.

People have options. They can ignore and hide thread. That's why the options are there.

25. I personally have no interest in music videos (nor in many other things on DU),

but I wouldn't consider that a reason for you to even consider stopping them. I just employ my clever (and patented, by the way) trick of not clicking on them.

If people are so disinterested in videos that they think it's worth missing everything else you post on DU then that's their problem, not yours.

26. Keep doing what you're doing.

.
.
.
None of you would BELIEVE the number of people ignoring me. It's multiple times that of
some of the biggest assholes on DU, so it's not that they think I'm an asshole (at least
not all that MANY of them).
.

I've gotta believe they just don't like my posting style. They find it annoying or obnoxious
or too time-consuming, etc.
.
I don't take it personally and I don't blame them. This is one of the PERFECT reasons to
use Ignore and I actually appreciate that they've taken that path.
.
They can avoid the annoyance and I can keep expressing myself the way that I choose.
.
Win-win.
.
.
.
That said... I have nobody on Ignore and I don't think I've ever PUT anyone on Ignore
during the 3+ years that I've been here.
.
.
.
Except myself, of course. But my putting THAT asshole on Ignore shoulda been self-evident.
.
.
.
(edit to add) Would somebody please tell me what I just posted?

28. Just keep on doing what you do.

I'm still at 2 people ignoring me and I've learned that you can't please everybody. I would imagine that you probably wouldn't want to be bothered by the people who have you on ignore anyway

29. 29 ignores? I can't think of a single post of yours that was even close to ignore worthy.
