Great history lesson. I have learned so much from earlyretirement.org and I am grateful to all who have worked so hard to create it and maintain it.

OMG, I just went back to the first post of this thread and checked my join date.....to find out I was one of the first 100 to join. I'm not a regular poster but RE was a big deal to me back then so I was, and still am, a sponge soaking up the collective wisdom and viewpoints. Check in virtually every day since then.

I retired in Feb 2000 at 50 yr old and with one and three year old sons. Largely feeling my way back then, with only the Trinity Study and a decent federal pension to plan going forward, and info from the Motley Fool Retire Early threads that I checked daily, until it fell apart.

Click on "User CP", on the horizontal bar above.
Click on "Edit Ignore List", under Settings and Options on the left.
Enter the username of the person you wish to ignore, and click the "Okay" button.
Simple! And a good feature for all of us to use in order to make our time on the forum more pleasant.

Maybe that could be upgraded to allow "Ignore a particular person in a particular thread". Then I could read the sports threads.

As a member since 2008, my perspectives on money, its care and uses, and also on aging, have changed immeasurably since I discovered the ER Forum.

It's also a kinder, funnier, smarter place to hang out than some other big-name forums that I won't name, after having my head snapped off a few times by their more active members. ER doesn't seem to have that same kind of "big boy/girl on campus, always right, and you'd better know it" members.
