Sorry, I posted this originally on the wrong discussion area. Apologies.
Just a thought - don't know how viable it is.
Is it possible to grant to the creator of a thread some sort of topic-ignore function? It could be a way of trying to ensure a thread stays on topic.
For example. Say I create a thread (like now). And say I'm interested in what everyone has to say except one or 2 specific people. As the creator of the thread, I'd be able to place said people into a topic-ignore list (only upon creation of the thread), and no-one would see their posts. And of course, the ignore will only pertain to that one thread.
What's the opinions out there? Too much? Not enough?
