I've created some views to list HB ideas in specific ways, and I've added "fxu=" tags to help me skip over ideas posted by specific users.

It would be nifty if I could find a way to block seeing their annotations to others folks ideas as well.

And of course anyone who wants can "fxu=32149" ... won't hurt my feelings.

       Yes I would like to apply

       You'd like to be ignored, or to ignore me, or is there some other special person in your life?
kdf, Dec 29 2020

       We very much doubt that [poc] has any actual human people in his life ... or even a "life" as most understand the term.   

       So, having a "special" person would imply that there is at least one other non-special person, which is statistically highly unlikely.

       I find that even bad ideas frequently have an interesting annotation stream, so I generally look at everything (although that "Days Since..." idea has lost it's charm...).

       Neutrinos_shadow, I agree - mostly - even the worst ideas and their annotations can be entertaining. But some folks just have a terrible signal to noise ratio. I've filtered one blatherskite in particular from my primary view - but I do skim theirs after I've read other stuff.   

       In any case, the idea here would be an option for those who want to use it, nothing that would be imposed on anyone against their wishes.

       // even bad ideas frequently have an interesting annotation stream //   

       That's often because good ideas attract little more than expressions of approval, and suggestions for improvements.   

       Bad ideas can lead to all sorts of interesting discussions. It's often said that it's possible to learn more from mistakes than successes.

       Which reminds me... how's your estate-spanning Alexa integration coming along? Learned anything useful?

       // Learned anything useful? //   

       Mainly, that the technical issues pale into significance compared to the "human factors" ...

       "...technical issues pale into (in)significance compared to the 'human factors'...

       Thanks for that, do you have any other profound insights to share with the class?   

       Do you at least have some chewing gum, or mints to share?
kdf, Dec 29 2020

       // significance //   

       That should of course have been "insignificance" ...   

       // do you have any other profound insights to share with the class? //   

       Yes. "Cheese tastes pretty much the same coming up as going down, so it's a good thing to eat if you anticipate a bumpy flight".

       If you insist.   

       The cheese thing is brilliant, did you come up with that yourself?
kdf, Dec 29 2020

       Of course everything has qualifiers, quantity and fondue items eaten.   

       A nice puzzle/prank would be if all halfbalkers randomly used the "fxu=32149" exploit. Swiss cheese anyone?

       Nah... As annoying as some can be, you gotta take the good with the bad here in the Bakery. They keep ya humble. It's not the Happy Cuddle Club.

       Well fxu you too is all I can say
