Is there a way to hide posts from individual members?

I love the forums, but several of the threads I like to read are infected with HIGHLY ANNOYING and repetitive posts by certain people. Is there a way to hide posts based upon member name?

I feel your pain. Too much chat with no contributions.

Actually, yes, there is.

You can simply scroll past the post made by that person. If you know that it is most likely going to ruffle your feathers, then just don't read it. Pretty simple really. There are plenty of non-useful posts on here, its just a matter of jumping over the useless ones. Don't let them get to you. I know that is sometimes hard to do, but being the bigger person means not replying to a junk post, and people will move on and eventually just drop the subject, unless it gets to a point where a mod or admin has to step in and clean things up.

Not trying to sound like a jerk here at all, just merely stating my opinion.

Re: Is there a way to hide posts from individual members?

If you're talking about Ally's thread you're off base. That wasn't what prompted my question (I started this thread the day before). I'm not concerned in the least about ruffled feathers. It takes a lot more than a post in a forum by some punk kid to do that. The problem is most prominent on threads which are purportedly "picture" threads. It goes like this - I get a notification email that states there is a new post so I think "hmm, maybe someone posted some cool new pics" but in reality, 99% of the time it is one or two people posting every single solitary thought that crosses a synapse in their brain into the forum. Scrolling past these voluminous posts is of course the only option, but it gets old really fast.

The end result is that I've unsubscribed from most of these threads and simply visit the forum much less. It is what it is I guess.

Re: Is there a way to hide posts from individual members?

While I had seen your post in Ally's thread, no that wasn't what prompted my response here totally. I do understand where you are coming from, but in all seriousness, no there isn't a way to do that. That is why I jokingly/lightheartedly made my suggestion. However, sometimes those people that make the annoying posts, can also contribute to some good as well... so if you were to have that "ignore" feature, you *could* miss out on a potentially worthwhile post as well.

With some members at close to 50 posts per day, most, if not all, of their posts are not contributing. They're merely chat that clutters worthwhile threads. And, when they frequently change their avatars and sigs it makes it even more difficult to skip past there posts.
