BLOCK LIST?

Hello Mods,

I find "block list" a flawed feature. It ticks me off to see "XXX is on your block list, click to reveal the post".

What's the point of adding someone to block list if I keep being reminded of their names? :facepalm: How about taking them out of my sight, just like on Facebook.

I know it can be technically difficult to implement, based on some previous posts I read. So it's more of a rant. But if anyone thinks I have some valid points and forward my suggestion to the dev, that would be awesome.

Ideally there'd be a user option on how posts from ignore list users are displayed (completely removed from view, and how it works now). Perhaps someday we'll be able to find the time to improve the system to do that. The default PHPBB method for ignore lists isn't that intuitive.

The funny thing is if someone quote that person's response, you still can see it

Sometimes it is good to check what an ignored person said, then click the refresh key on your browser and it goes back to ignored.

When someone routinely makes negative responses to your posts, and u see their blocked posts repeatedly following your posts, u still feel their negativity and harassment.

I'm afraid that's not the point here.

I believe every one of us here on rfd, regardless of our background, personality etc, would provide some useful input to the site from time to time. Even the person I hate the most here could still have some valid points.

However when I add someone to the ignore list it means the negativity outweighs positivity they impose on me, in which case I do not want to be bothered by the individual again.

Though ofc we can all have our own perception of the list .. so..

Unfortunately, I’ve also had the experience is still seeing a blocked person’s comments when they are repeatedly quoted by others responding to them in a few threads where there were great discussions and things to learn. I wish there was a way for me to not see those quotes too, but it is what it is. I just have to stomach those in order to learn from the others, contribute to the thread and hope they ignore this person enough to not quote/entertain them anymore.

Unfortunately, there are A LOT of insufferable pricks on this forum. Ofc the majority are decent but there are A LOT of losers, inferior-complexed, incels, etc, just miserable idiots that I have no choice but to ignore and it really sours the RFD experience. The most peculiar and repeated MO of these losers is that they just lash out at ppl for no good reason at all. Srsly screwed in the head and really annoying to have to deal w this periodically.

So true

Not sure because they are just arrogant or want to argue though

No idea as I'm not them and can only speculate, but I hate ppl that just wanna be argumentative for argument's sake, no substance but wanting only to 'troll' or aggravate. Waste of time.

Would love to see "ignore' really ignore them, including quotes. A few here post relentlessly, follow people around to add useless comments. I have added far more to ignore over the last 2 years then I had previously from when the site started. Getting close to ignoring rfd altogether

Before responding to someone (online or offline) ask yourself: is it true? is it helpful? is it kind? is it necessary? This comes from an old Sufi adage that is so relevant today.
