    The anti-American/military talk was a bit much but to each his own.

    Was it reported?

    The limit was raised to 1000. We have a request in to change from buried to hide.

    Change request is in to block content entirely and raise limit.

    When is this happening? The end of the US Open thread was about enough for me.

    Because one or more posters posted some boring, or even objectionable content at the end of a thread you want to block ALL of their content ? Forever ?

    Am I understanding you correctly ?

    If someone annoys me repeatedly or overruns threads with nonsense, yes, I don't want to read through 90 pages of some guy screaming "TIIIIIGGGGGEEERRR" or other crap.
    This is all a moot point. This functionality (blocking people and NOT seeing any of their content) was a part of the site before they rolled out their new version. I'm simply asking when it will be back to how it was beforehand (if ever).

    If you don't like it, feel free to block me.

    Thanks for your reply.

    So somebody respectfully asks you a legitimate question you reply with a snarky "If you don't like it feel free to block me" ?

    I don't block anybody. But if I was to start blocking people, it sounds like you might be on the list. LOL

    Thanks for reaching out. You asked me to clarify my view three times in one post. My apologies if I felt you were being sarcastic with your inquiry.

    High five brother .... we don’t have to argue about this one. I don’t get it either. The idea that you want to just block out half of the content makes no sense to me. How do you have context on the conversation if half the posters posts are blocked ? I genuinely am so curious about this. I’d love to understand the impetus behind the idea. My curiosity would drive me nuts. Never knowing what I was missing. Lol.

    I don't think I've ignored anyone on a forum.

    This is a great place to work on my "eye rolls".

    You bring up a great point. Without context how would one know what someone one didn't block was talking about when he/she is referring to someone's post who one did block ?

    Which brings up another point. I wonder how it'll work when someone you haven't blocked quotes someone you have blocked,,,,,,,,,,, I'll have to test that sometime just for curiosity's sake. LOL

    I can only state how it worked in the past:
    If you block someone, you will not see their original comment. If someone "quotes them" you will see the original comment along with whatever they have "quoted" in that post in the reply.

    We need the old ignore feature back. It works on the mobile site. I.e., I see the ignored person's name but not their post. On the website all is does is shade the post but it's still clearly visible. It actually makes the posts more noticeable since it is different than other posts but still very readable. If you can't have a functional ignore button just eliminate it altogether.

    When you see them do you have some health threatening reaction, lol?

    "I see those words!"

    Seriously, I've never had the energy to ignore and pretty sure I can avert my eyes if I'm afraid of some text.

    Carry on.

    Don't see why (we need it). As you said, the grayed out post IS noticeable since it's different - BUT it's also quite OBVIOUS as to what it is.

    Maybe try using some self control and just scroll past it instead of peeking at what your "ignored guy" wrote ?

    Not sure why that's relevant but none. I have the (will) power to ignore posts (by people) I don't want to read.

    I put you on ignore just to see what your issue is and it's a non-starter.

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.
