    I'm not sure if I'm describing this clearly or not:

    Is there an account setting that would allow one to block or omit certain users' posts when viewing the site while logged in?

    I've seen this feature on other forums, where the threads appear the same except for the posts of blocked users, which appear blank.

    I know that it's common for any forum to have a few people who will enter threads just to be sarcastic, or contrary. However, when their posts are so consistently empty, and rude, I find myself wishing for such an option as I describe.

    Is it already available and I've just overlooked it? Or are these situations dealt with in some other way?

    Thank you for your time and help.

    Put them on your Ignore List (User CP under the log in the top left and then Edit Ignore List).

    :eek: I don't know how I missed this. (I read the site FAQs and did a search before posting, but must have overlooked it.)

    Thank you for your help.
