Completely ignore member - how?

Is there a way to completely ignore a member? I.E. not have the board even tell you that there is ignored comments.

Thanks,

Mike.

So, you recognize the member from the description and your solution is "don't respond" - how bizarre.

I recognize this thread is over 12 months old, but I didn't want to start another thread with the exact same question. I'm not sure if the response was 'no' or just not answered.

Only been here less than 2 years and already compiling quite an ignore list. This is the only forum I have had take to that action on. :( There are some REALLY saavy and helpful members, but some...not so much.

Mostly I'm interested in the second half of the OP. Can the thread not show posts from ignored member? Is there a user setting that can hide the posts from the ignored user? I'm not interested in knowing an ignored member has posted or reminded of or that I have ignored a member.

If you click the users Icon you can select an ignore option. I do not know what it does, I would imagine it hides posts by those users but the simplest solution If you do not like what someone has to say or are overly sensitive to it then practice some self control and just not read or reply to their post. Its not really hard to do considering its just words on a screen.

The Ignore option hides the text of their replies but does not hide the fact they replied (ie., it shows they replied and then their response to muted). It would be great to not even see the fact they replied.

I see thanks for the information. Seems good enough to me and it makes sense the way its working. Now you can at least understand whats going on in the thread when other people are communicating with your ignored member but you are not bothered with having to see it. I think It could be very messy if there was nothing there telling you there was missing conversation.

Not really. If a non-ignored member quotes an ignored member, the quote of the ignored member in the non-ignored members post is blanked out. Meaning if you ignore a member, there are gaps in the conversation as the ignored member's reply is not visible to you.

But at least you would still see they are in a conversation with someone and that its just being ignored by you. Else it would look like they where just talking to themselves.

Without being a perfect solution, I have found the ignore list a very useful tool.

I only have an individual in the list, and believe is the same one you are referring to.

It does seem to work but the one I like to put in my ignore list changes names now and again to add to the confusion. Anyway the reason there there is more along the lines of bizarre postings than anything insulting and it has removed there postings (under that name) in my new list now I have added them to my ignore list.
