Do you think we should add a Hide/Block button into the forum so we can block specific people as individuals?

This has been asked and answered several times under "Forum-Related
Questions", which this is.

There is no "ignore user" feature built into this forum software. There
was once a mod created that supposedly would accomplish this, but it's
unsupported. It has known bugs which have never been fixed. It's not a
good idea to add a buggy mod to the software.

It might not even be effective if it did work because of the tendency of
many to quote and re-quote previous messages. If a user's posts were
"ignored" automatically, they'd still show up in quote.

I guess I should have done my homework. Sorry for the post Bob.
