What's the deal w/ Ricky H. Martin?


hipster doofus
It keeps showing that he is posting in the "latest posts" display, but I can't see said posts. It's not that I miss his presence, but I haven't added him or anyone to my ignore list, and there's a reason. I don't want to miss what happens here, good or bad? Is there any particular reason this is going on?
Others are having similar experiences jlb. I sent Clarity a PM to see what's up.

Basically LHM has been set up as an "opt-in" poster. Meaning that you SHOULD see a placeholder for his post, but will need to click on the "view" button/link to actually see/read his post. That effectively forces you to go an additional step to see whatever LHM has written. A very mild form of "ignore" I guess. I can see this and view his posts if I so choose. But it seems as though you (and several others) don't see anything at all where a LHM post used to exist. Is that correct? Maybe a setting is off somewhere ... Clarity will need to sort it out.

I used something called "Tachy Goes to Coventry" on him. A built in function that effectively puts him on everyone's ignore list. When I go into a thread where he's posted, I see what's in the image below. Which is where he posted, but not the content of his post, and a link that offers to remove him from my ignore list.

That *should* be what everone sees. If not, then Tachy isn't going to work and I'll have to find another solution.

Go to the following thread, that's where I took that screengrab. If you don't see LHM's 'ignored' post, then let me know here.

Clarity I just tried to follow the link you posted and this is what I got:

vBulletin Message
Invalid Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster

Didn't get that screen capture.

I took Louis off of my ignore list, and then tried the link, and I got the same message posted by BuckeyeSkins. I don't necessarily care to read any of his crap, but was interested to see if this feature worked. Oh, well.

*FKA877 puts Louis back on ignore*

The link works fine for me. The link is to the first post in the thread "And now for the rest of the story ..." it is in the "Forum Politics" forum. Can anyone just go to that forum and open the thread in the normal manner (not using Clarity's link)? If so, can you see the post Clarity has shown a screen shot image of?

3yards - The link does not work for me as I get the same messages as the others.

Also, I don't even see the thread ("And now you know...") when I go to the Forum Politics board. I tried to find it earlier this morning when I logged on, as I saw it had a new post, yet when I went to the Forum Politics board, I couldn't find it.

In fooling around with this, I realized when I took Louis off my ignore list, his negative feedback showed back up in my reputation points, even the neg. points he left after I put him on ignore. But I still couldn't access any of his posts or threads. Don't know if that helps solve the problem, but I thought it worth mentioning.
