Ignore list?
 
Ignore list: Shouldn't the ignore function suppress the posts as well as the threads started by the ignored? At this moment the posts are suppressed, but the threads still show!

I just can't handle it anymore. Finally succumbed and submitted one name to the ignore list. Can't bear to read his racist, childish, and generally ignorant and thoughtless writing. But all his recent non-sense threads still show!

Help!

I pulled this out of the FAQs:

Ignore lists are used for those people whose messages you wish not to read. By adding someone to your ignore list, those messages posted by these individuals will be hidden when you read a thread.
I think that means you'll still see the titles of the threads they start, but you'll no longer have to look at their individual posts.

M* has the only other "Ignore" function I've seen, and it behaves the same way.

That's too bad. Thanks again.

What's M*? Motley Fool?

Every forum I've ever belonged to has an ignore button.

The older versions of vbulletin used to have mods to allow whole posts by users on the ignore list to be hidden, quoted passages by ignored users to not be viewed, and my favorite...one that let a user post to their hearts content while nobody else could see anything they wrote.

Way more fun than a ban.

I dont see anything like that for the 3.x vbulletin, but I didnt look that hard.

OK, I'm looking, I'm looking...!

It would be nice to suppress the threads too. Too bad there isn't an "ignore this thread" button next to each thread. It would help clean things up and make reading here so much easier on the eyes.

I don't come here to get opinions of what is going on in Iraq or why politicians suck. I come here to stay current with FIRE topics and contribute to them once in a while as well.

I don't mind a few digressions, but when they become the main entree, it gets pathetic.

I do think that most folks have done a good job of keeping "political" discussions in the "Other Topics" forum, though. That makes it easier to ignore them for those who don't want to see them.

A technical question for the moderators:

Does "ignore" work based on the IP address alone, or the IP address AND the userid?

In other words, if the "ignored" individual creates a new userid, will his/her posts show?

cute fuzzy bunny 07-13-2007 09:19 PM

Yes they'll show. Ignore is for the userid only.

Yes.

For example, I have both Newguy and BooBoo on my "Ignore Poster" list.

cute fuzzy bunny 07-13-2007 09:38 PM

Awww...they're not the same guy, are they?

Yeah, I was looking at that...
