Is it possible to block certain members?

Just wondering if it's possible, like on FB, to block posts from particular PS members? I didn't see an option for it, but thought I'd ask.

Yes actually. It's under your account settings.

eta - click on your name. Click on 'friends & foes'. Add the person to 'foes'. I'm not 100% sure what it does as far as what you can see (some forums still show that they post, but hide the post. So you have to click a certain button to see the post. Some forums just totally block their posts), but it's there.

^ it's the Friends & Foes tab on the bottom row, once you're in your account.

It takes a lot for me to put someone on ignore but, when needed, that feature is a major blessing!

Other fora I'm on call it 'ignore'.
Too bad it's called "foe" on PS.
I don't think of them as foes, just as buttheads. :mrgreen:

This is actually a really good idea. I wonder if it makes reading threads confusing though.

Instead of their post you see this one line:

This post was made by X, who is currently on your ignore list. You also see, Display this post, which you can click on to see that one post.
If someone quotes the 'ignored's post it will appear, so you must divert your eyes.

It's not confusing, it's nice ... since you'd only use the feature when a person has demonstrated they are more trouble than they're worth.
It's not just nice for you; it's nice for the community because the result is fewer nasty fights with someone who just pushes your buttons or follows you around to be nasty.

Wellll, This feature obviously does not work, b/c I have been trying to block Kenny's posts for the past 10 yrs but his posts still popping up on my screen... :lol:

It gives the option to click on the ignored person and bring the post up if necessary. If you usually ignore what that person has to say anyway, it may not be all that confusing.

DF and Kenny are like computer viruses. You can try to block them but they keep coming back. :lol:

We are like a car accident scene, or those gossip rags at the supermarket check-out line.
Disgusting, but you can't help but look. :nono:

Eta, I still don't know how you did that Kenny. :D

If you block someone can they still see your posts?

It's probably me. I'd block myself as I know I can say some stupid stuff sometimes.
Such are the struggles of having no brain/mouth filter :lol:
