Just be glad they weren't fantasy gamers: "Elves & Orcs"


Now THAT would be cool!! I think we should change it.

Waiddaminnit. What if I think orcs are the coolest and elves are overdressed lyre-plucking useless twits?

I think "highlight & ignore" would describe it accurately. That is functionally what it is suppose to do (although the highlight-contact list seems to not have the highlight function enabled). "Ignore" has the benefit that you do not have to label a person a foe to ignore them.

I don't care if you love me or hate me, but don't you EVER call me a Democrat or Republican, buster.

Isn't that what most students do with their textbooks?

I always tried to get the pre-highlighted ones. :D

Save a lot of ignoring. :wink:
