I selected this option:
Hide messages posted by members on my ignore list.
...Will this block the member's messages or posts?  :headscratch:
I don't want to see any more posts from AngelOfDeath, how can I continue to come here without having to read anything he posts?

You should see this now whenever you are in a thread and someone you block has posted something:

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

I used a facility like that on another forum - then f found it was not worth looking at any threads the other was in at all, too much lost context made them confusing or I wanted to comment but knew I had to read the hidden stuff to be able to do so.

So I just totally ignored any thread the other commonly invaded.

That is exactly what I do, Dave. If there is a poster that I am finished with, I completely ignore all that they do.

That has been my modus operandi as well. And I feel much better for it.

You've had access to this option all this time and you didn't tell me about it!?   :cryandrun:

I could change my name to "Mr Member"...that's cool as well, maybe "Mr Member Grande'?

Anyway, uh that option...I think...that's...pretty common...knowledge... on forums like this...???

I don't currently use it, but anyway I understand Mags, heck I remember my first forum. Good luck and welcome to HAF :rawr:

I think it's also good to try to respect ignores as much as possible by only quoting the relevant portions of the user's posts, that way Mags won't see the complete post of a user she is trying to ignore.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I agree, good idea Davin.

We're (the staff) are looking at an upgrade to the forum to allow members to ignore threads. If Asmo gives his technical blessing it will be added in the near future.
