Never liked the buddy list or the idea of it - at best it leads to a heat fest where we all blindy vote our buddies deals hot, and at worst it leads to stalking - which could be done by advanced search I suppose, but at least that requires a little bit of effort.

I'm sick of being stalked by bullies......



So thats what its used for? Never saw the sense in having a buddy list.............but the Mods will probably argue that it creates a community feel. May be some people find it useful (in a positive way) and if its being mis-used by a few, thats not really a reason to change it

It would be nice if it were made so that you had to accept someone as a buddy before they could follow you using the facility.

im still confused to what you lot are on about, after finding out what it does im still confused, so all you can see is where someone has posted, you can do that by clicking on view posts by, one click same as one click on buddy list

The "Click on posts by" isn't the same.

I can tell the last 10 threads that my "Buddy" posted in within seconds.

As an example, write down the last 10 threads that I have posted in. Time it.
I will do the same with my buddy.

so ok, im a bit slow on the uptake :oops:


still dont get about the stalking crap though, you can see who posted where, so removing it isnt gonna stop someone if there sad enough to want to follwo someone around

good point ....didnt think about that....i suppose if someone wants to find your posts ..they can use advanced search

lol maybe we should have anonymous posting then no one could follow anyone........or in fact no...its bad enough already


well as it doesnt take you to the post it does exactly what advanced search does, so no difference :?7

although i do kepp thinking im missing something here :oops:

The more hoops people have to do to follow some one around, the less likely they are to do it.
Buddy list takes seconds.

Use the advanced search to find out the last 10 threads I have posted in, and time it.
