IF people are just allowed to spam and troll the boards...

...without anything being done to make them stop, can we PLEASE at least have the option to "block" them from view?

  • That would be lovely. My hypothesis is that they bring in a lot of hits which, in some cases, equals revenue. Since some posters skate up to the edge of the rule but never quite break it, I suspect they let it go.

    I'm beginning to believe that's the case...

  • Also, I've also wanted this option when the WYW posts are two pages long so it's not just this particular case that is annoying

    YES. And they need to better regulate for plagiarism.

  • I've never understood why blocking someone on here doesn't do more than just keep them from seeing your profile. Facebook has been able to hide member activity from each other for years, if one has been blocked. Why can't it work like that here?

    Exactly! Another forum I frequent has an "Ignore" button that eliminates all posts from that user from your view with an option to reveal them if you choose. (sometimes it helps in order to follow a thread)
