Is there a way to set up an 'ignore' flag on another user? Not for harassment or anything like that. I just find my blood pressure going out the roof every time I read anything they post.

I invent imaginary people and make them have conversations in my head. I also write.

LOL! Don't think so, not with the standard forum features anyway. Could possibly write a GreaseMonkey script? I'm sure there's something out there already.

or...

There's loads of mods to the forum software that provide an "Ignore" (just had a look -- Google "simple machines ignore user" w/o quotes). Maybe petition the powers that be to install one?

It's not important enough for a mod. Had it already existed, I'd use it, but...to petition to add something just to "killfile" a certain poster (or posters)? Probably more trouble than it's worth.

I'll just have to practice not feeding the trolls.

Maybe I'll go to YouTube and read comments.

Now everyone is wondering, "Am I the offending poster Kaa wants to ignore?"  :D

My evil plan is coming together nicely! <insert (evil) hand-wringing and evil laughter here>

I thought I saw a thread here, but I don't see anyone's posts in it.

Odd...

Dave. DAVE! Anna hacked your account and blocked all of us. She doesn't want you to know what we know. She's plotting to take over the podcast. Damnit, Dave!

I agree with this. While an ignore feature would be nice for those who just cant stand that one guy it would breed too much negativity, especially in our small community. So.... no. No ignore mod. :)

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?
