    Seems like this keeps coming up, and it might be nice to have something set up to show people how the ignore function on this site works. It's pretty simple, and only takes a few clicks.

    First, visit the members profile and on the left side of the screen you will see an information box displaying the user's handle, profile photo, and links to various options. One of these links is "Add to Ignore List." Click on that.

    This will bring you to a new page that confirms that you really want to block this member. Click yes.

    The request will be processed, and that member will be on your ignore list. Now, whenever that member posts in a thread, their posts will look like this:

    Rather simple feature that needs to be used more often. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions, feel free to post here. Also, if you feel there's a time when this thread may be helpful, feel free to bump it!

    Thanks, and happy trading!

    Grim, does this block them from pm'ing you and from you seeing their posts?

    It does block you from seeing their posts (by displaying the 3rd picture above), but unfortunately there is no way to block only one member from PMing you. You can turns PMs off from all people though, but that might not be what you're looking for.

    Perhaps this should be a sticky or something...
