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.

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?

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.

Re: Reminder

That is a handy feature, although I guess you would still see quotes from the hidden member?

However, it is a feature that I would be reluctant to use, for as tempting as it may be to ignore (say) the political ramblings of someone who you find unhelpful that same person may impart a gem or wisdom that will change the way you see things or solve a problem that has been puzzling you for ages.

Now I know I am not on Johns hit list.

I got a reply so he reads my musings.

One of the reasons I could never be a moderator. Patience and restraint are just words in the dictionary. Although I am aware how much I've mellowed with age.
