Under the user control panel tab, there is an "ignore user" section.

Re: Reminder

Which way does it work ? Does it mean everyone ignores you or vice versa ?

It allows you to ignore a members posts. There's about 50 traders and trolls on my list.

Funny you should say that David. I also have quite a few traders and trolls confined to my ignore list. A few minutes ago though, and for the first time since I joined the forum 7 years ago, I have had the distinct pleasure of confining a member who isn't a trader or troll to the list. The subsequent relief is quite enjoyable

Regards,

John

I must admit that not all of them are traders and trolls, just the majority. I'm beginning to think I should start adding some of the Internet 'experts' having just done a blog post extracting the urine out of them.

Re: Reminder

How do we know that we have ben added to the list I wonder?

Presumably this function works across the forum and not just in specific areas?

Nigel, it just inserts a message where you would normally see a post stating....

This message is hidden because xxxx is on your ignore list. Once activated it applies the same message to any previous posts made by xxxx and all subsequent ones. A very handy feature

Edit: Unless of course your curiosity gets the better of you and you can't resist the temptation to know what's being posted.

You don't know if you're on someones ignore list. I suspect that I'm on quite a few.

And always trying for more.

Who said that??

Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of using the ignore facility, I need to be aware of what's going on.
