The forum needs an ability to filter out users.
A check box option to make a user and all post from them no longer display. Not naming names here cause some you might think I would block I would not and vice versa.
I do not see the harm in for example, if every post I made was like tin foil on dental fillings for LTD, she should have an option to pull up my user profile, hit a check box, and all my future thread comments, and or fan post should not appear for her, or appear in a collapsed format so she would not need to waste her time reading my drivel, but could click on a specific collapsed post of mine to one time view it.
Not sure if this is even viable, but it would do wonders and probably increase traffic back to game day threads (especially the threads in which the Canes are losing) if on a per user basis people could decide which trolls they care to converse with versus which they just want gone.
To clarify so no one gets confused, not talking about bouncing users or anything, just a setting saved locally so that the reader can decide who they no longer wish to see comments from while they are reading (yet those comments would still be on the site for everyone to see or not see if they so choose.)
I can barely tolerate to read game day threads any more.
I am all for difference of opinion, and with a reasoned , somewhat rational person, who can agree to disagree when views do not align, I am all for that as well.
Yet as of late Canes Country seems flooded with troll like hate brigades. People whose posts over and over again display nothing but negativity, while offering no insight, suggestion or opinion.
I feel the negativity can drive away people who enjoy this community, yet get frustrated by the constant doom and gloomers with no desire to actually discuss gripes in an adult manner.
