any person should have the ability to block any other person.
for example, if I do not wish to read another user's comments/posts then i should be able to block him.
then, anything that he posts... i will not see it.
but this would not censor out his posts, others that have not censored his posts would still see his posts.
i do realize that i would get blocked by a lot of users, no worries, lol.
the flipside of this issue is that if you block me and you do not read my posts then i am talking to others and you will not be aware of it.
now, if you block me, will you still see the posts where another person that you have not blocked replies to my post and quotes my post that you didnt see in the first place?
anyways, implement a blocking system and you will satisfy the majority of the crowd.
bondage.com has a pretty intense blocking system in their forums, thats a fairly intense crowd, perhaps you could use their system as a model.
now, for the record, grimfd has never liked me personally, and he has dogged on me many times, he has stalked me at the oanda forum and also here.
above, he says that when somebody calls another an idiot that this is more a reflection of who that person is that is doing the idiot calling and that it says little about the person being called an idiot.
btw, i am an idiot, socially, but no worries, lol.
mr elkart/grimfd may very well be a likable kind of person and he may have many friends here in this forum, but never forget that cattle bunch up in herds and likewise so do idiots. no offense intended, of course.
trading is not the same as having a tea party.
i do believe that many of you would do well to come to terms with this issue.
this is a dog eat dog game.
