I'm tired of receiving PM's from someone on here and wish to block him from doing so.

***content removed ***

Moderator note:  The above is an excellent question that a number of people here will likely benefit from the answer that is well put below.  The content I deleted did not include names, but was a squabble that really didn't need to be dealt with in public.  We will no longer tolerate quarrels between members to be aired on the forum.

Easy.
 
Just go to your profile options (top of screen along with the buttons "Home" "Help" "Search" etc,) and then go to the left sidebar to Personal message options (or something like that) and add them to your ignore list.

Also, I won't send you PM's about this, but you could have stated you point and use more civil language.

God bless,

John

"Civil Language"?  "Crap"? Or are you referring to something else?

Good information, John. Is there a way to do that in the rest of the forum or just in PMs?

Yknowwho,

Yup, that is what I am talking about. My point is, years ago, that wasn't acceptable. Things have slipped. The thing is, if that stuff starts becoming common place on the board, then the next step down is just a little worse. Then it is just a little step further, and then, before you know it, young people cannot read the board. My point is, that is just the beginning of a slid.

Jjrbus, You know, I think that you are right Grin Cheesy Grin. I have also noticed that the really intelligent minds of the world tend to think that what I am doing is a good idea Grin Cheesy Grin...Want to buy a bus? Grin Cheesy Grin

Dale, so far I can only see a way to do that with the PM's...Sorry Grin Cheesy Grin.

On a different note. Does anybody know where to find my model # on my S60 (I know, I know, I haven't had to look for it before, but I need it so we can look into ordering Jakes.) Thanks.

God bless,

John

Yeah. I've been kind of silent lately because I've been in a really cranky mood for quite a while. This time of year does it to me. I've been afraid I might say something I shouldn't. Today I made post on John's thread with what I initially thought was tongue in cheek humor, but after reading it again tonight, I realize it could easily have been taken the wrong way. Fortunately, John didn't take it the wrong way (at least I think he didn't).

All quiet on the midwestern front......  again...

John, No offense but just by the name you use as a handle tells me you are a verrry religious person. I was raised where religion was force fed down my throat and it bothers me to see people use religious avatars, names and signatures in any forum except religious ones, we all don't have the same beliefs, morals or opinions of what words are offensive. The only words that really shouldn't be used here are the same ones George Carlin used in his 7 words you can't say on TV. As far as this board goes it is an adult forum and I really doubt kids are reading here and if they were they would think this is like church compared to what they say and hear on a daily basis. I won't go out of my way to offend you or anyone else but on the same token I'm not going out of my way not to offend  anyone. "Times they are achanging"  Back when I was just about 4 or 5 years old my mom "Found God" and he told her the TV was the devil box and had to go. We just had 3 channels and shows like the little Rascles, 3 Stooges, I Love Lucy now we have ove 900 available channels with more smut, foul language and violence but she now has satellite TV. HMMMM. As long as someone is not attacking you personally  or your rights it's all pretty much fair game.

I'm religious. I don't wear it on my ID or avatar, but I wear it proudly in the way I behave daily. I don't go so far as to think there was anything wrong with the language in this thread so far, but I also don't go so far as to think anything is fair game. A person has a right not to be religious, but on the other hand a person has a right to be religious as well, and that includes in their handle or avatar. It doesn't matter if all the other people here are of the same belief or not. Having a name that can be perceived as religious is not offensive unless someone is looking to be offended. Have you seen the first scene in the DaVinci code where Tom Hanks shows the symbol and people yell out what they think it stands for, but then they find out that it is entirely something else? So assuming the definition of someone's handle can lead to problems anyway.

More than that I have to say that I disagree with "I won't go out of my way to offend you or anyone else but on the same token I'm not going out of my way not to offend anyone". I don't think this has anything to do with religious or not. I think this is just good manners. I do understand that too many people yell OFFENDED about too many things these days, but we can tell the difference in really offended and politically correct hogwash. Why on Earth would I want to offend anyone? I wouldn't want anyone to offend me. The Golden Rule, whether you take it as religious or not, is still a pretty good standard to live by.

Ok, now this is getting just a little bit scary. I had not read this post from last night, but this morning while in the shower, I started thinking about George Carlin's 7 Words. I do my best thinking while waking up in the shower.

MAK is getting into my brain while I'm sleeping!!!

Anyway, I started thinking about the skit. When he did it in the 60's and 70's, it was all true. You couldn't say those words on TV. Now it's not so much. Today, on network television at least two of them are regularly used, and a couple others are used so often and poorly bleeped that they might as well not bother because any two year old could figure it out. But his logic still stands on the last one... "...and tits shouldn't even be on the list. It sounds like a snack. Yes I know, it is a snack. New Nabisco Tits! There's Corn Tits and Pizza Tits. Cheese Tits. Onion Tits.... Tator tits."

And if you find that offensive, you really need to get to a psychiatrist for your 50,000 mile humor checkup, because that's just plain funny no matter how you look at it.  Tater tits!!  ROFLAMO!!

Hey, who stole my tinfoil hat?

Now that there was a funny post.

Song man, Just because I said I'm not going out of my way "Not" to offend someone doesn't mean I don't care about others feelings or beliefs it's just there's too many extremists on this particular site and some of them go from one extreme to the other on any given day or topic according to who posts it or who jumps on or off the band wagon.
If you have control over what I can or cannot say what is the purpose of free speech and better yet why did all all those men and women have to die on battle fields?

Hi Ron,

Free speach is relevent in an open public fourm. However, this is a private membership fourm and we don't allow it.

If free speach is what you want, then I would suggest you go elsewhere and express it.

Thanks

Ron, you know I like you. We have spoken on the phone and have no problems. But who gets to define 'extremist'. I would say to a number of people you would be considered extreme. So for that purpose, your definition might actually apply to you as well. I have also had troubles here with people who switch sides on a particular issue just to try to stir up a fight. I have found, even though it is hard, that the best thing to do is ignore him. You seem to have a problem with religious people. Sadly, we make up about 90% of the population so instead of being offend by us, probably best to just ignore us on anything that appears religious to you.
