Ignoring /msg's in the chatterbox?

on Aug 30, 2001 at 06:43 UTC ( #108995=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A user has been threatening me in the chatterbox. I have successfully /ignore'd them from public messages in the CB, but I am still getting personal /msg's from them. How do I prevent them from sending me private messages?

    Believe it or not, an a$$hole has been caling me honey lately. I don't know why? (I don't swing that way, i don't know if he does either, but I don't like it, have told him to stop, now I just wanna strangle him).

    I've tried ignoring (same boat).

    I don't really care if what anybody calls me, but the tone he tries to take ... and ... it just creeps me out.

    If he was a Petruchio, or somebody I've conversed with longer, it might be funny, but this "green" booger just plain pisses me off.

    My solution, spam him in turn (for every message he sends, i send one back says fskc you).

    I think he's beginning to get the idea (he is kinda young, but not stoned, just stupid).

    Posting this makes me feel like an a$$hole(for about a second). I'd have settled for busting him a few in the shoulder (or chin if he fought back), but

    what can a monk really do?

    Well last night (more like the night before), all the swearing and this thread paid off, and things are back to "normal" for now.

    Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

    perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

    Mmhh, this is strange. Using the Chatterbox: Private Messaging states clearly that /ignore should also stop private messages:

    To ignore a user, just type /ignore followed by a space and the user's name. This option will not only refuse private messages, but also you will not see any public messages that they post.

    So probably the documentation has to be fixed - or, even better, the feature so that it works as promised.

    AFAIK, you can't--which is what prompted me to suggest this a while back. (Many of us were going through similar things with a certain, notorious troll at the time.)

    I'll see what this might entail.

    I just sent off a code-fix for this problem to vroom. With any luck, you won't see those messages any more...
