Default How to ignore posters in here?

Most forums allow you to ignore or block certain posters. Is that possible here?

Go to your User CP (upper left), go to Settings and Options, then to Edit Ignore List where you can insert the name of the member you wish to ignore. Sorry, but you can’t choose to ignore admin or mods... bummer.

As RH noted, use that process to ignore a member.

Getting all butthurt on a public forum is a waste of mental energy that could be directed to making more money... Jus sayin..

Mind your own business. What a stupid comment. They made the ignore feature for a reason. Life is too short to waste your time on obtuse people. Answers like that is why this forum is down to 17 regular posters. Welcome to my ignore list.

Who do you like best out of the seventeen active members, not including cricket because everyone likes her?

Since this thread is in our site support section, which triggers an alert for the tech support team, I am going to close it.


The issue has been resolved and we don't want hurt feelings if the above question gets answered.

Geez. Just read this. Been super busy lately.

If you post in the open forum, there really isn't a "mind your own business". It's open to comments from anyone and everyone.

The ignore button is a wonderful thing to have available. I've encouraged it's use for years.

Now how does one post in a closed thread? They don't.

Thank you for closing it Bill. I'll try to be more attentive and up to date on this stuff and threads in the future.
