To Chow: Can you add an ignore feature?
I have been on Chowhound for many years (at least 12). During most of that time, I have come across few if any posters I would not want to meet in person. Lately, however, I have seen a few posters who would fall into that category, and since I visit just a few boards, I suspect there are others out there.
Rather than subject myself to these posters on threads I'm interested in, I'd like to be able to just ignore them, which is possible on many other popular web sites. Can Chowhound get something like that?
Bump. There's got to be a way to "hide" the posters you simply do not want to read, ever. Not the threads they start, not the posts contained in other threads.
It's a simple feature on majority of other web forum software (especially phpbb), but alas, not avail on Chow. It's sorely needed.
I'm not trying to be sarcastic nor becoming one of the people you want to add to this list but I don't see why it's a problem? If you receive email notifications of threads your involved in it tells you who the poster is so you don't click it.
If your just scrolling through a thread again if you see their handle just skip over it.
I know when a thread is started there can be several sub topics that come up during the thread with many people commenting to each other within a thread. If you were to ignore somebody and not be able to see or block their posts it would seem to create more of a problem following the flow rather thank just skipping it and reading on.
Just my thoughts.
Well, I'm going by the Wash Post boards, where they recently added an ignore feature that works incredibly well. On facebook, same thing.
In most cases, it's pretty easy to follow the discussion without seeing the blocked posts.
I don't get the email notifications, so perhaps I could try that. I get more than enough email already so what's a few more. 8>D
