For anyone not previously familiar with vBulletin software...the software now being used for the forum, there is an ignore feature. This allows your account to ignore, and not show, posts by posters on your ignore list. You will see that they have posted, but their post will not show. To use this feature, click on User CP in the menu in the blue bar below Sooonet.ca at the top. It will appear on the left side of the screen, click on it in the menu. Enter the poster's name you want to ignore. If you misspell it, you will be offered close names of members and you can select from there. You can remove a poster from your ignore list at any time.

Just in case anyone's interested, and wasn't aware.

:wink:

I can't imagine why anyone would want to ignore people's posts. To me, no matter how ridiculous or annoying they are, I get a kick out of their nonsense. If it gives me a chuckle, it is most definitely worth my attention.

lynys, sometimes it can be difficult to carry on a rational conversation when some posters continually interject nonsense that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Others just attempt to incite. I would never put someone on ignore that truly contributed in general, but there are some that have a pattern of disruption, and never anything to offer, not even a good laugh.

I had someone on ignore once. I found myself more curious as to what they had posted when I couldn't see it.

Miles, I've done the same elsewhere, and soon took the person off ignore. I've had other situations, though, where the person ended up leaving the forum, and I had no idea for quite a while. In those situations, it was because no one was responding to them, just about everyone had them on ignore.

Obviously for some posters here it is. When I sit down to the computer to relax for a few minutes, I don't wish to have to deal with bratty, attention-seeking children. If I care to do that, I'll go hang out at the mall.
