Ignore function

Any chance of an ignore function on here, please?

There's a fantasist here who just posts utter nonsense 90%+ of the time and gets all offended when anyone brings reality into their fantasy world by pointing out the contradictions. It'd be nice to not have to read their latest work of fiction when browsing here.

Re: Ignore function

What does the add to blocklist button do on their profile page?

All it does is stop the blocked person from sending you Private Messages.  It does not stop you from seeing posts made by the blocked party.

Re: Ignore function

The real concern is my coming on here after a few drinks and pointing out the obvious BS. Drama isn't becoming. 

I suppose I could just avoid forums when a little tipsy but it's when I do some of my best posting.

Just one?  You lucky duck, I have 75 users on my blocked list. Smiley Very Happy 

I keep hoping that one day the forum will get an upgrade to allow me to ignore their posts.

Re: Ignore function

75 people have PMd you that you'd had to eventually block?

Not all of them. I started adding them years ago, before I found out that it only blocked PMs and have just carried on adding users in hope of a future forum change rather than expectation.  I think of it as my forum equivalent of Sheldon Cooper's Mortal Enemies List Smiley Wink

Re: Ignore function

Looks as if the person has stopped posting here for a while at least. 

Splendid.

Re: Ignore function

you could just actually ignore the posts?

most forums i've come across don't really work when blocking posts from certain users, as it ends up breaking the flow of threads when you can't see all the posts - and the ones that don't can't block people quoting those posts which means you end up seeing them anyway.

also, what happens if said person starts a new thread but then someone else repsonds to it. it means you end up either not seeing the entire thread or only seeing replies.
