Do you think that Mylot should come up with something like that? I was at this other website, and it has this on this talk forum, Buddy ignore List. I think that would be great if Mylot would come up with something like that, How about you? How do you feel about this. everyone wants to be friends, but once they are your friend. They go about there bussieness. Just wanted to know how everyone felt about this? Thanks Marcie~~~

If you have someone on your friends list that doesn't ever respond or that you just don't have anything in common with, you can always delete them from your friends list. Soon after I first joined mylot and got friends request, I would just accept them all. Now I am a little more selective. I have also deleted some from my list. Some just want to have a long list of friends. I would rather have a short list of friends, people that I communicate with regularly. I don't like the sound of buddy ignore list, that sounds kind of mean.

I know, just deleting a few of them at a time takes a long time. Oldbuddy had way to many at one time. He emailed mylot and asked them to delete them all. He then went and picked out the ones he wanted to be friends with. You could always just do a few at a time. You will be in my thoughts today, take care.

I like the Mylot system. You can enter into any discussion without restrictions as long as you are within the rules. If you don't like someone on your friends list you can turn of notification and avoid many e-mails. You can also delete people from your friends list. I like the fact that it is not an exclusive forum, although you can make it exclusive for yourself if you wish. I also like the fact that you can only PM people if they are on your friends list.

Why would you block your friends?They are frineds for a reason..Explain them that you don't want to receive emails, and they shall understand.Turn off the notification.Don't add friends randomly.Basic rules.Friend ones you know well..This way you won't have 100 friends which you don't know where did hey came from.

Hi Peter, You can still see all the discussions that your friends posted even if you don't have the e-mail notification turned on. I did not say I would like to block my friends, I just don't want 100 or more e-mails a day.

I think by turning off our notification here at Mylot kind of ignores people on your friends list in a way. Some members I have accepted for friends do not have discussions I can relate to or some of them turned out to be very rude so I ignore them here by not turning their discussions on for me to receive. I do think we should be able to ignore them also if they are spamming and getting our discussions deleted. I think if we could ignore them, maybe they wouldn't be able to post to our discussions.

I am not talking about good buddies such as you, I mean, I have over 600 froiends, and don't have the time to go through all of the friends list. Half don't even come to my dission, I have about 50 faithful friends that come to my discussion, although not at one time. but we know the ones that always answer.

Right. I know exactly what you mean. I have a ton of friends in my friends list also but alot of them spam me or some of them are rude. It just seems like they only want me for a friend to help them out or they add me and later I find out they are being rude to me and others in their discussions. I try to be helpful to others but when they continually spam me or be rude, I just turn the alert off for them but I wish there was a way to block them from ever responding to my discussions sometimes because they spam the discussion an get it deleted or they are rude to me and other members in my discussion as well. I just try to be very choosie when responding to discussions and accepting friends these days. I try to look at some of their discussions and see if they are decent people who make good discussions for all of us to answer. I also accept them if they make good responses to thediscussions I start also. I try to never turn down a friend request but I also pay attention to their discussions and responses as well.

Hi honey, I think myLot wishes for the current buddy system to be the buddy ignore list. In other forums with the ignore system in place, you can usually message anyone - even non-friends. Here though, you can only message friends. So effectively, anyone who is not your buddy here is on your ignore list. =)

Hi Marciascott, A "buddy ignore list" probably would be a welcomed addition to some mylotters. If I find that the people that are in my friends list are not acting in a way that I consider to be unfriendly I will just delete them. Take Care.

I meant to say if they are acting in a way that is not considered friendly, that is when I would delete them.

Hi Marcia, You can just delete them from your list if you don't want them for friends anymore. I may be off the mark here because I don't know what the buddy ignor is. Have a good day Doll xoxoxoxo

You can go through all your friends list but who has time for that.

That is an excellent idea. We need to have an ignore list on here. I don't even know how to delete friends once you have added them to your friends list. Another good thing would be to being able to put your profile on private. Just so that people you don't want to see your profile doesnt get access to it.

Go over to the left, and look up friends, this will take you too it, then delete the ones you don't want, I don't really have the time to do this It would take me all day.

I can only notify those on my friend's list, but once in a while I want to talk to someone not on my friends's list. I did not put them on my friends list for a reason, either we would get into a big fight about religion or they will talk sports until I am blue in the face, but they might know something about home repair, or be a good cook or know something about classical singing, but unless I put them on the friend's list, they are essentially on the Buddy ignore list.

I think that would be a blessing. There are some users that just cannot take a hint and keep at me. Plus, it would be great to help weed out spammers and keep our message inboxes empty from the people that want nothing more than referrals.

i don't know i think its a good thing that there isn't an ignore option the more friends you have the more discussions you get to respond to and the more people will respond to your disscussions, i'm a little slow at responding i must admit but i don't spend alot of time on here right now trying to spend more time on here tho but it takes alot of self discipline to stay on for more than an hour responding to discussions
