    So if you have someone on your ignore list and they message you as part of their resignation move, then the message appears on your home page.

    Another reason that ignored people should not be allowed to have games against you. It should not allow them to be selected in clan games, and if you are in a tournament first it should prevent them from getting in (and otherwise). Or the tournament scheduler should make every attempt to prevent a match up with someone who was on your ignore list when the tournament started.

    It is total crap that in game messages can still be sent by someone who had previously harassed you on this site.

    Yet another reason why I am leaving this site.

    The ignore list prevents players from sending you private messages, messaging you in-game, (with the exception of the final move as that will show on the home page), and from accepting your open invitations.

    Clan games and tournament games are completely different. Challenges in tournaments are completely random, there is no "tournament scheduler" so someone on your ignore list can still play you, they just can't message you. If you have a problem with a certain player, ask your clan leader not to pair the two of you together.

    Can an opponent who is in your ignore list really send an in-game message to you? I don't think so! At least that what I thought was impossible.

    I have had people harassing me via in-game messages, and stopped immediately when I put him on my ignore list. As a punishment I became an item in his ignore list too, so I couldn't send anything to him. Small problem...

    This shouldn't be the reason for you to leave RHP.

    Edit: If I was paired with one of my ignorees, I would treat this as a game, like any other game. I wouldn't try to communicate with him, Ind i don't have to read his comments. Like any game when we're not communicate.

    Okay Crowley. I guess a site that also supports a forum has no responsibility to its clients with respect to safety,

    [sarcasm]
    Good point.
    well made.

    Another possible route to solve this problem (and is solved on most other sites this way) is to have active admins who protect those who use the site, instead of just leaving them open for threats.

    I sent feedback to the admins when a single player used two accounts to circumvent my ignore list. They promptly banned the 2nd account.

    Are you accusing me of threatening or having threatened you?

    You don't like someone, add them to you ignore list, they can't send you messages except on the last move when they resign.

    If the messages received are threatening or abusive report the sender, I am sure admins will remove them.

    Holy crapola. I can't believe you. YES. You and Afliez issued a death threat to me in a now deleted thread.

    Maybe you were too drunk to remember. But if I were you I'd close my mouth now. You can't even remember your own posts.

    Admins did nothing about your garbage for about a week before they removed the thread.

    And why is it okay that a resign message can be sent? Your on my ignore list. No private conversation should be allowed. I need third parties to see all of your correspondence to me, because you previously showed yourself to be a dangerous person.

    You really are totally off the planet! Death threats??

    As for why my "gg" message got through I have no idea take it up with Russ. When I posted the message, and you did play a good game, it showed up, and still does that "Message ignored by Gastel" and according to the Message Log for the game it shows as "This game has no messages."

    As for being a dangerous person......

    Yes you did issue a death threat to me. And yes that does qualify you as a dangerous person.

    Not to be rude, Gastel, but I thinking you are making a bigger deal out of this than it is. My parents issue me death threats all the time and you don't see me putting them on my ignore list.

    You know your parents. I don't know adram at all. Maybe he is a mass murdering maniac. Maybe he works for the Bush government. Maybe he is my neighbour. Since I have no way of knowing who he is, his threats need to be taken seriously.

    Also, a person who issues a threat cannot be the decider of how seriously the recepient should take it. That is not how normal society works. Adram does have this idea that he is the ruler of all though and can say and do as he pleases without reprecution. So far he has been right about the nobody doing anything about it.

    I notice that my "Things that make adram cry" was taken off promptly, but his "Things that make Gastel cry" was not. He obviously has the admins in his pocket.

    Funnily enough I don't know you either.

    I am not a mass murdering maniac, nor do I work for the Bush Government.

    I am not your neighbour and as for having the admins in my pocket, talk about conspiracy theories.

    I had no idea you started a "Things that make adram cry" but it was not reported by me. I would have liked to see what you would have thought would make a so called death threat issuing, mass murdering maniac cry.

    You may also care to note that the "Things that make Gastel cry" was not started by me.

    I accept your apology for the erroneous accusation
