I know that it is possible to block/ignore the personal messages (PMs) sent by a specific user, but will it ever be possible to ignore specific users on all the message boards? I know we should all get along and respect each other’s opinions and points of view, but for those rare occasions when we would like to hide posts from a certain member to make the experience more enjoyable, could this feature be added?
Message boards are, more often than not, a product of the users that visit to post their thoughts. And when there is a user or multiple users that share thoughts that are rude, belittling, or snide, I personally don’t feel that user is posting within the realm of civility. Even when someone is knowledgeable, it doesn’t give them carte blanche to talk down to other members - no matter how they feel about the quality of a post.
But, since it’s nearly impossible to ask a member to change their attitude because that is who they are, I think it’s only appropriate to give each user the chance to decide what they want to read and what they don’t. It would be nice to know that everyone is here to help each other, but in reality that is simply not the case.
