    I'm getting real close to using it for the first time ever, on any site I've belonged to. I'm hoping this particular member redeems himself, but I'm not holding my breath.

    While the people who write the software this forum uses could probably implement that--as long as the quotes used the "quote=username" and not just blank "quote" tags, or broken quote tags--unless the software authors have done so it is unlikely the local forum owner can implement it. Perhaps that is an option the forum owner's could turn on though. You might want to PM dan if he's not reading this topic.

    Even if he could turn that on, it wouldn't really hide the whole digression/thread derailment from you.

    The thread/item/topic that likely prompted your post was a smoking tire fire (all heat, no light, smells bad) almost from the beginning. Unless you are in the mood to watch or participate in an ugly argument, better off just unsubscribing from that topic (I don't suppose there is a way to "ignore" a topic in the "new posts/what's new" listing?).

    I don't see a way, but you could read the item in "threaded mode" or "hybrid mode", and not read the sub-threads that show posts from the person you feel derails the discussion.

    Such an ignore feature would be doable from a programming end. Not so easy to code cleanly and one could side step it relatively easy without extensive text matching.

    I hope it is hay fever and not a complete adversion to farm kids that has spiked the use of the ignore feature.

    Or, you could use your own inbuilt ignore function. That's what I do, though I find even the annoying posters (I'm sure I fit in there somewhere myself!) somewhat entertaining at times. If I don't want to read them I skim past. Simples.

    Thanks for the explanation guys. Crypros, that's what I'm doing, it's just my thumb cannot keep up with the screeds and screeds of repeatedly re-quoted blocks of text sometimes.

    I have used ignore from time to time. RATS. The name keeps popping up!

    The squirrels in Pensacola, Florida, were smaller than these darn Yankee squirrels in Michigan. Those gray squirrels in Florida did a lot more damage than the ones up here in Yanquilandia. Squirrels up here in bluebellyland are brown and twice the size of Florida squirrels. The only good thing about Michigan is the more benign squirrels. They are amusing anyway, and our old cats chase them to our amusement. My wife's the native of this backwater. You should ignore this.

    Some of us take the whole eating squirrels thing personally.
