    As for educating the populace, yeah I used to have more faith in that than I do now. But realistically people have to be ready to receive the message and that requires, well, a lot of things and not just an open mind.

    And frankly Iíve never found the hectoring/lecturing/repetition method of educating on public forums to be very effective.

    I tried the ignore function and it worked well. Now, unless someone quotes a problematic post, my feed does not irritate me much.

    I had one person on ignore from before who always came here enumerating her problems and asking for advice but then rejected it. One person described it as peeing all over our cereal.

    I have now added three people who are not following forum guidelines by throwing out personal insults and two other people who are trying to get into their clique by buttering up the rude folks although they themselves are better mannered. I'll see if new ones jump on the bashing wagon to take their places. As I've stated before thank you to everyone who can disagree with me on pandemic response policy without being disagreeable.

    Ditto. I've used Ignore in other forums as needed; I use it here as needed.

    it works like this:


    Can I block posts, emails and messages from specific users?
    If there are particular members that bother you and you do not want to see their posts or receive Private Messages and Emails from them, then you can add these members to your 'Ignore List'. There are several ways to do this:
    Through your User Control Panel: User CP, Settings & Options, Edit Ignore List. Then, type their name into the empty text box and click 'Okay'.

    Frugal-one, maybe the easiest way, for me anyway, has been to locate the Settings option which is at the top of my screen on the same line as my name when am logged in.

    When I hit that link, the screen opens up where on the left-hand side about 3/4
    down on the page there’s an option to “edit ignore list.”

    LittleBittyBobby - that's a name I've not heard in a long time.
