I noticed that drbrumley had a little note in his sig that he had Koban on ignore and this brought to mind my own list in my sig.
It occurs to me that this might be a handy feature to add, yes? I would think if we could be given the option of listing who we have on ignore in the sidebar that'd be pretty cool.
I like listing mine in the sig so those folks will know I have them ignore. Yes, I actually worry about someone wasting time addressing me when I'm not hearing them. The way I figure it, if you're going to put someone on ignore, you should at least let them know.
And you could make it an option, perhaps even on a case by case basis, as some might not even want to announce who all they have on ignore. Maybe a little checkbox for who on your ignore list you want appearing on your ignore list in the sidebar.

I'd personally love to have that little bit of space back in my sig taken up with that list.

Is that doable?

I used to be on a board where your had an ignore bin. Everyone could see who you had on ignore. They called it the "iggy bin". I have yet to even figure out how to put someone on ignore here but I've been told I have a stellar ability to pretend people don't exist.

If it gets to the point that I need to put someone on ignore, I prefer to just put them on ignore and move forward.

If someone is so annoying that I need to utilize the ignore feature, I certainly don't want to give them recognition every time I post.

If I put everyone on ignore who offended my sensibilities I'd lose half the best lines they tend to generate in response...:think: Mostly I agree with Stripe's initial comment (reason enough to dismiss me entirely) and tend use the same ignore mechanism that I employ for self editing--my noggin.

The great thing about relying on your noggin is that it has a lifetime warranty, is as realiable as your own good opinion and burns calories. Show me a button that can match that. :thumb:

I only use ignore to prevent myself answering someone (really ONE) who I never want to be tempted to answer. I am quite certain that he will turn and rend me & I have better things to do with my time. But I tend to forget, so I put him on ignore & I never have to be tempted.

The only reason he would rend you asunder is because your assertions do not have a solid foundation. If they did, no one would be able to tear them down, or you, for that matter.

In other words you are trying to have manners. Otherwise, do you not know that you are dead to sin? Unless you are one of those that reject the sealing of the Holy Spirit, and want to work your way in. Here is a hint. All have fallen short.

I think that losing my temper and calling someone names...or being mean to someone beause I don't like them is sinful.

Furthermore, I don't think its very lady like to totally lose it and go on a screaming rampage..which, I am prone to want to do. I'm the same way IRL. I struggle with my temper. I can't picture the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31 or Titus 2 behaving in such a manner and nor should I.

I'm not too afraid of getting banned. I suppose it could happen but I think its unlikely. I don't know what you and Nick believe about sin but I believe that I still sin. I still struggle. The Lord will help me but I am still a sinful human being. I am tempted to sin all the time!! Everyday I struggle.

You don't think you sin? Do you do anything wrong? Or do you just not consider the wrong you do to be sin?

The flesh is completely unrighteous, and therefore can do nothing but sin. However, we are not our flesh. We are spirit, for that is our identity in Him. And in Him there is no sin. He does not identify us with our sin, so we do not identify ourselves with our sin. We are not sinners, for He has made us righteous.

And because of His grace we are not slaves to sin. We are slaves to righteousness. And by this we are able to walk in the spirit and not in the flesh, and are able to reject temptation and sin. Not by keeping ourselves from the things that tempt us, but even in the midst of them.

Or that those are not sins because I am righteous in the Lord?

Oh, so you admit you are a human. How interesting.

We all do things, commit acts that are sin. But you aren't in sin if you believe the gospel. It isn't accepting Jesus and living like a disciple or sinless. That is impossible. That being said, grace is not a license to sin. Yes, we still know right from wrong, and have to deal with it.


What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
From Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.
For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Paul's example of being a slave to righteousness.

Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law has dominion over a man as long as he lives? For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband.[/B] So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.

Even though we commit acts that are sin, our flesh ensures that we will, we are dead to sin. We are slaves to righteousness, because of what he did, not something we do. Aside from believing him.

And, no, I'm not saying you are not saved. I am saying that you have the power to reject the temptation to commit those sins. And that none of these sins are accounted to you, if you are indeed in Christ. You are not a slave to unrighteousness. You are a slave to righteousness. You need to recognize that.

When you eat until you are totally stuffed...way beyond what you need, I think it's a sin. What movies? Hmm..Oh, I have an example. Sex in the City. I'm sorta interested in the plot and what happens but I seriously don't think I should be watching that filth. Since I'm well aware that I shouldn't watch it if I give in and watch anyway, thats probably sinful.
