    True. This is why everyone needs to use the Ignore function for these people, then no-one will read or quote their posts...

    Yes, I also recommend people use the ignore feature. In order to do it, click on the member name and View Profile. Then on the left side there are a number of options, one of which is add to ignore list. For some reason on my browser the font color is the same as the background color, but if you highlight it you can see what it says. For convenience I created the image below:



    Unfortunately this feature doesn't hide the post completely, just makes it so you don't see the content.

    Call me weird but I actually think a user like N.O.T gives the forum a bit of balance. Just like any group of people anywhere you're going to get bluntness, fanboyism, hurt pride, overly positive/negative people. People who take it all a bit too seriously etc. It's not really a forum anymore if you start removing certain people. It's more like a private group - which wouldn't be that hard to set up.

    I think a lot of it is about working out which users you can have a good debate or conversation with. And just trying to either disregard or rise above the other noise. But I realise that's not really human nature to do that.

    In real life you can't just hit an ignore button and drown out certain ideas or people. As appealing as that might sound.

    What's the purpose of ignoring somebody anyway? To convince yourself not to read his posts?
    I have no issues skipping something i don't want to read.

    Yes, that's correct. It's all personal choice what to read. If somebody quotes you negatively, that's probably result of your negative approach.

    I also don't see any reason to ignore N.O.T, his posts are often some of the most brilliant on this forum.

    Ignoring me is like closing your eyes in front of an orgy.... it still happens, you just lose all the fun.
