If nobody responds to this post with the words "koala kumquat cookie dough" then teethering is correct and I truly have been shadowbanned since the early days of the Internet. :(

This reminds me of a plot that ran on SOAP for a while - Bert realized that he would sometimes be invisible because no one noticed him, then he learned to control his invisibility with a series of finger snaps.

Individual users are able to ignore whoever* they want, and if enough users ignore you that could have the same effect.

*Not sure if that applies to moderators. If you set it to ignore a mod that's just asking for trouble.

I don't think you can ignore a mod. Technically, I mean. Purely as an effort of willpower it's very doable. For a short while.

well, no offense Louie, but you're now on my ignore list, just to see if it's even possible

That's a fair experiment! Is it?

So I got the "You are ignoring this user.  Show me the post." blurb where your post was. This is what hitting "quote" gave me:

So it can be done. Blimey.

Still, doesn't matter all that much in the end, as ignoring us will just elicit warnings.

Cheers for clearing that up!
