I must admit that I felt a bit offended by a specific user's attitude towards people trying to answer his question.
I also realize he mentioned that it's not the first time people helped him (and he didn't want their opinions), but his profile shows no prior questions. Strangely, I feel like I've interacted with him before. I might really be mistaken about that, and I frankly don't want to know; I think it's both better for my mood and him if I just choose to privately ignore him in the future.
I don't think he's commited a "bannable" offense, or anything that needs third-party rectification. I just have a desire to choose not to interact with him.
- Are there any integrated or off-side tools to hide his questions in the future? A userscript, maybe? I don't want to carry a piece of paper with a list of people whose questions I won't read around with me ;)
- Is this at all a sensible thing to do, as community member?
nb: I'm back later, but have decided to catch some sleep now, as I'll probably be less grumpy than I am now.
(note that I'm adding references to the interaction in question not to accuse the asker, but to clarify what kind of feelings I'm trying to avoid having to choose to either ignore or express. I would value your input on how to manage these feelings, but I'd guess that would justify asking a separate question.)
