    Does MacRumors give users the capability to block selected users? There are a couple users who frequently reply to my posts, derail the topic, and make this forum much less useful to me. I am considering not posting to this forum anymore because of this.

    UCP -> Edit Ignore List

    (You can't block off other users quoting your ignored users though).

    Just a note... if your fear is of a thread being "derailed", then your ignoring of a particular user may not help as it doesn't mean that others won't see their post and respond to it.

    Quite true. I can't imagine how this could get implemented but I think the simplist solution is simply reporting the offending post. If the poster continues to exhibit such behavior, they will most likely be in contact with the mods

    If you read the thread in question, you'll find the OP's desire to block the user is completely unfounded. The OP asked for advice, got good advice, then rejected it, as many in the thread pointed out.

    Because you refuse to listen to helpful information?
