If you get hit with enough ignores, it might be time to be suspended.
I registered with my original FT handle but used my yahoo address. I used a new variation of my old handle (chemist661). After some posts, etc, I will keep my current MP handle as it reflects my more current location.
Is it possible for some sort of auto-message on the currently-unused (i.e., old FT) handle, such as "this user is part of the witness protection program and goes by another name, so your messages and conversations will be ignored" (or a milder version of that ) - I am logging in to the other one every so often to see if someone thinks that is still me.
uh, obviously they would have to look at the posts, and not just auto suspend people...
otherwise, regardless of intentions, people can abuse this by using ignore to get people suspended.
Actually the "we" is referring to the technology. W as in me and the staff can't nor would be ignore any member. We have no wish nor desire to watch who is being ignored, that is between the member and the members.
Would it be overly complex to block usernames that are so close to other usernames as to be confusing?
I almost considered additional handles; to capture my old handle in various forms, but in the end I did not like that handle so why go back - milepoint is about looking forward, not backward ... my old persona should not live here!
I can appreciate that statement... had a new user AC_MM join recently and that is too close to mine for comfort ... I must stalk him to ensure he does not cause havoc
As soon as the ignore feature is implemented I will become one of its biggest users. It makes my experience/time spent more rewarding. Sort of like real life.
so perhaps more complex system including ignore based on post content etc. but not understanding bolded.
Seems to say, if folks complain about an abusive or obnoxious poster, the computer has a threshold to automatically suspend the person.
I would hope that all drastic actions such as suspension are then reviewed by a human to confirm that the algorithm is correct in that situation
doing that would be a major mistake, so i cant imagine thats the case...
