Map, you are asking people to ignore you? It is impossible to do, you should know that! :roll:

Map, I couldn't even ignore a test post from you.
In MD, you're the first name I look for in the topics column.

I was ignoring both you and this thread, but you couldn't tell.
This post is just to make sure you know you're being ignored.

I don't know about everyone else, but I ignored the "please ignore" part.

Seems to me that this is proofing that the best way to get someone to peek inside is to tell them not to! not toto

Alternative motivation for this thread: there was a post "for XX only" in MO forum, where the author is a female and XX guy is um... a guy. Naturally, this was the first topic I clicked on, just to figure what's going on... Then I wondered if it's only me that spolied and decided to run a little experiment.
Thank you everybody, I feel better now

Originally asked by all-powerful sheriff Jim Yingst:

Gee, this is a good idea. From now on "XX" will be used to refer to persons of declared female status, and XY otherwise
Now I am convinced that this forum is much better than boring, dry and stufed XML-DEV. It's almost two days since the first post, and people still ignore it. And some even managed to ignore it twice!

I think the best way to be ignored is to title the post "SUPER IMPORTANT URGENT PROBLEM NEED FULL CODE NOW" or something similar. The other alternative would have been "wud u pls ignor ths thred". The content of the latter title is not important, just the nonsense spelling in the title!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
