Sorry to bump an older thread but you can blame the member above me.
I continue to have mixed reactions to this issue and am especially sensitive to the complexities required by site owners/coders after recent site redo
but I have an idea I thought I'd share. (Yes it does happen on occasion)
As opposed to a global member ignore function which would require reworking profile page with ignore list and un-ignore function, I propose a minor
tweak to existing site functionality which seems, in theory, fairly easy to achieve. Right now on the drop down menu actuated by red triangle on each
members avatar, there is an option to "View Posts in Thread" I propose the exact opposite. A "Hide Posts in Thread" option. Seems like from a coding
perspective a rather basic tweak.
This seems to satisfy many of the pro / con opinions cited thus far. It would address the ability to see a members posts in other threads and require
some involvement on the part of a member to actuate this function. The function would reset once a member leaves the thread similar to the "View
Posts in Thread" feature does now. Above all it is an option.
Feel free to 'ignore' this idea.
I've been on many ignore lists in the past but do strive to embrace opposing views and rely on mod intervention to enforce T&C but that doesn't always
address troll patrol. Or as some think, "everyone is entitled to my opinion" posts.
