Feature Request – ignore user

One can only take so much of haters, it would be fantastic to be able to ignore a user and never have to see his posts ever again.

    <p>Yes. Disqus had plenty of issues but this was one of the nice features they offered. </p>

    <p>Hi,</p><p><br></p><p>Did not want to create a new thread but this is my question as well.</p><p>Is it planned to introduce such feature?</p><p>No way I am advocating the ban or censoring of single-purpose hate and trolling accounts which regularly post a lot of BS (probably those who visit this site regularly can name a few of them), neither I am offended by their idiocy. </p><p>But it would be useful to just add those nicks to the ignore list, the same way it is with, say, Mobile Nations. </p><p>The "Standard comments" section of the articles contain a good amount of valuable content apart from the noise created by above-mentioned nicks.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#325338">In reply to paul-thurrott:</a></em></blockquote><p>If it helps your discussion, I submitted this same question to this site's support team in late July / early August. The response was it was on a list of potential updates to the site.</p>

    <p>I am 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times behind this idea. I get tired of the threadcrapping too.</p>

    <p>Would such a feature also hide replies to the people on the list?</p><p><br></p><p>e.g.: Bob is on your ignore list. Steve (who is not on your ignore list) posts a reply to Bob. Steve's reply to Bob would be hidden, despite Steve not being on your ignore list.</p><p><br></p><p>This may be an option worth considering (ideally such that it can be toggled at the user's discretion).</p>

    <p>With the recent mentions of a possible refresh of the Thurrott site (once Petri update is done), can I vote to get this sort of feature pushed up the priority list for any new site functionality.</p><p>Even something that let you auto-hide certain user's posts and that you would then have to make a conscious effort to expand them if they were in a conversation trail. </p>

    <p>So strange Multicore opened this thread and he’s the one I want to block. He’s the hater in a thread I’ve been following.</p>
