    Is there an Ignore button?
    I've looked but I've not seen one.

    There are a few moaners (proper moaners, not charming grumps, but just sour bitter old men) on the forum who don't seem to contribute anything except moaning about everything that's happened since the 1970s.

    I don't read threads they've started (they don't start many - like I say, I've noticed they actually contribute very little except complaining about some facet of post-1970s life), but one can't help but stumble across their right-wing moans on other threads. I notice how they seem to be forthright in their opinions but if anyone disagrees with them then they accuse the other person of being argumentative.

    So it would be nice to have an Ignore button.

    Many other forums have them. I think it helps a lot because one can simply 'ignore' users they would prefer not to read rather than read them and in a moment of weakness post a response that might create controversy.
    It could help promote a more harmonious forum.

    What do you think?

    Click on their username and a box appears with their profile etc. Ignore is one of the options there. :)

    Isn’t it just? Might make for a hard to follow thread at times, but it can prevent a headache .:)

    It's one of the best improvements of the change to this software - on vb it still gave hints as to what they had posted, including quotes.

    Just used this function, works really well as it totally blocks the member(s) concerned

    That's strange, I can't see any posts in this thread.;)

    Do you really need to ignore people and not just scroll past their posts or not read their threads? After all, we never had an ignore feature in the '70s and we did ok.

    It is noticeable that as one gets older one gets ignored more and more.
    I get my own back with my increasing deafness: I don't hear anything I don't want to!

    I hadn't realised the internet worked the same way.
