    If another member continuously rubs you the wrong way, one option is to put them on "ignore".

    Once you do that, then any post they make is blocked (unless quoted by someone in a reply).

    Here's how to make it happen:

    1. Click on their name anywhere you see it on the site.

    2. A window with their avatar and stats should pop up.

    3. Among the options on this window are links to their profile page, start a conversation, follow and ignore.

    4. Click ignore.

    Any problems? Ask questions here.

    It doesn't even show the quotes.

    The downside is that if you have someone like, oh, I don't know, say GrayGhost posting every other post, the discussion doesn't make any sense.

    Of course, it doesn't make sense if you do read what he says, so I guess that is actually a wash.

    Proud to say that in all my years of message boarding- no one has gotten under my skin enough to use the ignore feature.

    Scrolling is just as easy- and a tad more respectable.

    No one really gets under my skin. It is just some of it has become such a constant and conversation dominator that it totally takes away from the experience of being on this board.

    The issue is less about "getting under one's skin" than it is about just being a constant distraction. When a pattern emerges from a poster, after a while you can simply decide that you don't even want time wasted for your eyes to cross their words, because you WILL read and that becomes a distraction from your reason for visiting. Seriously, it's time management, not being petty.
