Would be great if we could stop certain users seeing our posts

    When we put someone on ignore it would be great if it actually blocked them.

    And they couldn't see our posts or our accounts etc.

    If there is something you don't want someone to see do not post it on this site. It really is that simple.

    Its not that i don't want the public to see it


    Its that certain users go around looking for a fight ...on any topic



    I think it would be nice to be able to block these people from seeing my tweets.

    Not everyone is going to get along.

    If i don't like a poster then it would be nice to be able to block them.




  • If, even before you post your points, you expect other posters to challenge these aggressively- that reads as if the point is an extreme one.

    If you post within Boards ToC and the relevant charters, you have nothing to worry about.

    Should another user, by challenging or questioning this point, break these same rules - that's on them.



    It reads very much like your current signature.
    Look at my posts ABC, but not D which is only for like-minded people.

    I don't agree with that at all. There are some posters on boards that if you said the grass was green they would venomently deny it, because that's just what they do.

    For what it's worth, I don't agree with blocking others from reading your posts. If you have an issue put them on ignore and leave it at that, if they break T&C's then report them.




  • Grass varies from yellow, green, brown, purple, loads of colours

    But this isnt twitter




  • Twitter do that and it's a disaster. It allows people to ignore and hide from everyone they disagree with without ever engaging with them (they block people based on who likes posts even) and live in an isolated little bubble that will only reinforce their own views without ever challenging them.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
