I did a little poking around, and there are phpBB plugins that allow users to create an ignore list.  I believe that this would be a welcome feature for many of the users here, as it would allow each of us to establish our own personal threshold for some of the more outrageous posters.

Ignore would be quite helpful!  I’m not sure I’m all that interested in ‘rebuking’ a certain poster, but I’d very much like to never see their posts again.  I have also found this a useful feature on other boards, and I think it’s more necessary here than anywhere I’ve been before.  There’s just no talking with some people, and I’d rather not have to listen to that kind of person.

[quote author=“forumadmin”]I will take that up with Sam. I have used that feature on other sites and found it useful.

Please if you have an issue with a certain member, email me. I do not mind sending an email telling people to behave or even banning members that go too far.

Nah…an ignore list would be good.

Some people like “debating” with fundie trolls.  Let them.  I just don’t want to see the notification that there are new posts when it’s just a troll.

Not sure it counts for much, but I’ll second the ignore list idea.

I tried to add four users to the list, two showed up listed, but the other two did not.  The message stated that they were already on the list, but their handles did not show up on the list.

Well I just tried again and it worked. So, never mind.  Question: What is the effect supposed to be? These user names still show up in the index.

Hello Mr./Ms. Admin…

Will this option eventually be placed prominently on each forum list, a “How To Block an Offensive Poster” link at the top maybe? Just seems it would be good to have handy… sort of like blood pressure medication wink.

I think the idea is that the person’s name still appears as a poster in the thread, but the post content is rendered invisible. Good enough for me wink.

Thanks.  I just found that out as I went through some threads.  The names appearing is a subtle reminder of how much we have to endure!!! But its great not to have to read the garbage.  NOw if only the folks I do want to read would stop quoting those I don’t…

veracitatus, I got to hand it to ya, you sure turned out to be a whining little crybaby. A total milquetoast. Until you get backbone, I think we should change your name to Caspar Milquetoast.

How dare you insult veracitatus. He is a tenured professor who happens to be writing a very important ebook. The ignore button allows him to act like a professor. Say whatever he wants with no responsibility to the consequences of his ideas and not listen to any criticism. Welcome to 21st century academia.

Of course all life is a process of breaking down, but the blows that do the dramatic side of the work - the big sudden blows that come, or seem to come, from outside - the ones you remember and blame things on and, in moments of weakness, tell your friends about, don’t show their effect all at once. There is another sort of blow that comes from within - that you don’t feel until it’s too late to do anything about it, until you realize with finality that in some regard you will never be as good a man again. The first sort of breakage seems to happen quick - the second kind happens almost without your knowing it but is realized suddenly indeed. Before I go on with this short history, let me make a general observation - the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.

When I first entered this zone I was impressed by Mia’s open-mindedness and then by V’s obvious intelligence.  Today it’s the arrogance that leaves the most significant impression, sad to say.

klangdon… I don’t want to misunderstand, and would make no claim to “first-rate intelligence”... but are you suggesting that to put someone like treblinka on an ignore list is an indication of lack of intelligence?
