Over to the left in each post in a box largely by itself there's what's called a nickname or something, and mine is dalehileman I believe in a bold font. When you see it there simply avoid the box to the right

In addition on most mice there's a wheel to make scrolling easier

If this was technically possible I would. I have not found an ignore button on this board and so to read the posts I want to I have to wade through yours much more often than I would like.


it is technically possible: click on the name of the user you wish to ignore (e.g., dalehileman, next to one of his posts); click on View profile; click on Ignore this user.

Thank you! The function is buried quite deep here it seems, not like most forums I use.

Technical question: If you "ignore" and user and no longer see his or her posts, how would you reverse that if you change your mind? If you can't see the posts, you can't click on the user to make a change... thanks! :0)

iirc, what actually happens when you choose to ignore someone is you still see their name (i.e., you can click and view profile) but what you see in the post box is 'you are ignoring this person', or words to that effect.

so it's really only helpful if you *want to ignore someone, but just can't stop yourself from reading them anyway. (in fact, I find it to be an annoying reminder of that person's presence, and I wonder what stupid thing they've posted now. 8-} )

-joe (so how is this a good thing?) friday
