    Sorry if this has been asked before but could someone please let me know if there is a way to "ignore" a particular poster / posters?

    Thanks in advance

    It is! But not long ago I was quite shocked when one member actually said they had 40 (I think) people on ignore (which really doesn't leave many at all). I didn't have a list for ages, but I did recently have to put a small gang on ignore as they were doing my head in!

    40?! Surely that's most of the regular posters isn't it?

    I was debating after all the political threads and same old same old, but decided I'm too nosey :D

    That's what I thought, but sure it was about that number. Possibly a typo?

    It's most likely to be a lot of Chinese spammers. It's a good way of avoiding their threads.

    Do they do it from the same accounts then? Why don't the mods just delete the accounts?

    I was under the impression that the spam was from someone that was setting up new accounts to do it. Hence why I haven't bothered putting them on ignore as I didn't think it would make any difference.
