in reply to Ignoring nodes

Well, you are going to have to deal with headless nodes from people you don't have ignored who replied to ignored nodes. That is always a pain to deal with. I don't see vroom putting that in unless there is an easy way to deal with such issues in Everything already. Look at /. and its screwed up threading when a middle tier post is low-mod'ed but there are higher level posts in its tree. Messy messy.

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)

    Dunno, I think that peoples replies to trolls are less anoying than the original trolls myself.

    Update: OK so this has just been -'ve voted .. dowt. I hope the intent of the node was clear. I was simply saying that I dont want to filter threads.. if someone takes pains to reply to a troll then I have no problem reading it. Tiss just the initial ramblins I would like to see blocked.


      That's not my point, it is just that a lot of how Everything works is built on showing you the parent node of a child. How do you show the grandchildren of a node when the parent can't be shown? It winds up messy in code and on the page.

      $you = new YOU;
      honk() if $you->love(perl)

        Sorry now I follow you, I dont see this being an issue (given that I have no idea how the code works) if the filtering was only done on the newest nodes node, or -specific- other nodes. I was not proposing anything as clever as you seem to be thinking.
