Default Possible to Individually Ignore or Block User?

I believe this mechanism, by providing for a mature way to handle the discussions that often degenerate to the same few people brutally banging their heads against the same wall (i.e., screaming past each other), and often "infecting" multiple threads with the same argument, is the single best way to dramatically improve the general atmosphere of the forums as well as saving the blood pressure related medical bills of the forum participants. I suspect that moderator headaches and blood pressure and stress will also reduce once people start using this feature.

Basically, it allows individual forum users to simple block or ignore other individual forum users: they do not see their posts or responses. They can still interact indirectly on the same thread (e.g., if a third user, who is not ignored or blocked by one or the other, quotes the ignored/blocked one), but it really still goes a far, far, far, far, far way to help!

Hi

if you click on someones profile you can find user list and click add to ignore list.

Hope that helps
