    Don't you hate when you add the obvious trollers to your Ignore list yet you still have to see their idiotic and endless "commentary" via email notification as well as every time someone quotes them (which is often - the temptation to respond to these cyber-hemorrhoids can be overwhelming...).

    I'd love to see updated forum software one of these days that provided a little more robust troll control for individual users.

    Please Arn, make it happen?

    It's not up to arn. File your complaint with vBulletin.

    ^ exactly. Perhaps if these people you have on ignore really have that much of an effect on you turning off e-mail alerts is a good idea.

    I don't think the complaint should be filed with vBulletin either. Even if they released the functionality tomorrow, MR would still be on 3.6.10. For reference, 3.7 was released on April 29, 2008. The current version is 4.0.x, if I recall.

    Why hasn't MR updated? Or does new version cost money?

    I remember reading a post somewhere that WildCowvboy said the update to vbulletin it's not compatible with some of the hacks the admins use behind the scenes.

    WHAAAT?! Admins use hacks? Naughty admins :p Well, to be honest, as long as MR works fine, I don't care what version of vBulletin they are using :cool:

    If you were Andy Rooney, you have 2 million things in life that drive you nuts, and 200 million people that bother you even more.

    So, too many fools, and not enough time in life to make the ignore list big enough to be effective.

    Dudes, Scott Forstall has a Twitter account. Nothing else matters.
