Anyone else remeber the DU era of "The Nuclear Ignore"?
Edited on Sat Apr-04-09 06:36 PM by LostInAnomie
Man, those were some crazy times. Didn't all that start because of "The Douche-Bag Thread"?

1. Nuclear Ignore was great fun. Possibly more fun than negative recs and thread ranking!

3. There were some CRAZY fights over that.
I think the "sticky" that introduced it had over 500 posts and about 1/3 of them were deleted posts.

2. It was a short but lively era
I found myself on ignore lists of people I had no recollection of ever having interacted with, leading me to believe that there are people on DU who simply ignore everyone. I imagine their discussions are quite one-sided. :rofl:

4. No joke!
I got banned from threads and thinking "How the hell could anyone get offended by that!?"

I think a lot of those people only hang out in the group and specialty forums.

5. There was one person, who had over a thousand people on ignore!
It was amazing!

DU must have been so quiet for them.

20. That just boggles my mind to have so many on Ignore.
After a couple hundred, (really?), it begins to say a lot more about the user of so many Ignores.

Why even come here if it is so intolerable like that? Like, anyone that disagrees goes on Ignore? That's just insane!

6. We were just talking about that!
I remember several people from The Place Not To Be Named came here and put every GLBT and African American posters on NI.

It didn't happen because of the Douchbag Thread. It was introduced right about teh same time, though.

14. You could block who posted in your threads
So, if you did not want a reply from, say, me, you could block me from responding to you at all.

19. I'm thankful Admin asks for enduser feedback before installing new apps.
One of my very favorite things about this place. They actually care about the folks that are members here.

21. Do NOT insult the douchebag thread. Or the members who hijacked it!!!!!
It wasn't because of that. It was pretty funny, you should have seen hedges' nuclear ignore list. It looked like the Manhattan phone book.
