an ignore button?

Post by bada bing » Wed Nov 03, 2010 12:30 pm

Would it be possible to have an "ignore list"? When someone posts, their post justs comes up as "ignore" if they are on your "ignore list"? Curerently my ignore list would have 1 person on it.....

I would like this function. :D

I was thinking this the other day, we have a 'foe' button on another forum I use, it saves having to read the drivel some people post. (unless it is quoted by another user)

Mine too. I wonder if we are all thinking of blocking the same individual?

If you need me to explain, then you wouldn't understand.

Imagine what would happen if you blocked Hums. The forum would virtually disappear and then, if she found out, so would you!

may be if the same person had, ooh say, 10 members who put them on their ignore list, then the forum should default to putting that person on the ignore list of all newbie's to the site.

Some popular person would then create 10 aliases to get people blocked.

I do think that The Boss should note those who are being blocked and decide if there is a case to answer though.
