This VBulletin based forums software used here has a nice tool. It is an Ignore List. By enabling it for a user name, it will effectively hide any content that user has posted anywhere on the site.

You will still see that they posted something, but there will be no content. You can easily ignore that user and enjoy the rest of the community.

Below is a link to access that feature in your control panel:

Thank you Ray. I am guilty of getting my nickers in a twist over the small stuff when life is too short for that. I will avail myself of that feature.

This is a great tool as with growing forums you get those undesired folks that you just don't want to see! Thanks for pointing out that tip.

A reminder to ALL members. If we keep it civil and respectful, no one ends up on an ignore list. Don't lets discussions get personal. Thanks.

Agreed Todd,

I try to big the bigger person and just walk away from online conflicts where we can't seem to agree to disagree. Sometimes however, I find someone that just seems to find a way to push my buttons. In this case, the Ignore List is a good compromise, It allows me to continue to enjoy the rest of the community.

The only bummer is I know I am missing content... and lots of times I know the poster has good information to share. Its these instances that I wish we all could realize that there is an art to being respectful and polite when hidden behind a keyboard. Remembering that emotions are very difficult to convey in typed words and feelings can get hurt easily.

Of course the term Troll did not invent itself and some folks will always take pleasure in knowing they are making others miserable. For them.......... well you get the point, off my soap box.

Yeah ultimately keeping it civil is the way to go but on just about every popular forum you get those folks you just have to ignore. At least using ignore, you do your part to diffuse the situation.

Yes, I know this only a forum in cyberspace. Most of us do not know the who's, who behind users handles,, their here for their own reasons, be it what they may. Comments, questions and the replies, should arise to make to a forum informative and helpful to all. By way of, ones personal choices, opinion, real world experience's or factual information from real world sites, with a link, if needed.


Keep in mind that 90% plus of the who's here each day are viewing this site as visitors. They do not have an ignore button. I will not chose to ignore anyone. I will try to help all of you, at least until it is well known that is not the what the post was interested in to begin with.


Perhaps in the good will of attracting new members that will positively use this site, we all will chose to abate the antagonism.

Make sure you sign in before you read the forum, or you will still see the posts of the person you have on your ignore list.
Yes! That is a tip that will take away a lot of frustration as I bet some people will have burned away valuable time wondering why the change did not take effect.

As with making changes with any thing, a "restart" almost always ensures it happens

personally, I find it easier to be pleasant to members and guests alike, and try to be as helpful as I can, never really needed an ignore button...I hate conflict, and if someone is heading in that general direction, I'll simply stop engaging them...my own way of an ignore button!
There is no need to take things to ANY personal lever either, we're all here for a common ground, to learn, share, and exchange info pertaining to the ride in question:the MKC....personal attacks should never happen and can result in a ban....which is drastic, but sometimes, needed!
