Ignore list

I don’t suppose there is anyway, when you have someone on your ignore list, that you don’t have to see when they’ve been quoted?

I believe you can learn a lot, even from people with whom you strongly disagree so I don’t generally put people on my ignore list but I’m sick of reading a thread only to have to read about the poor persecuted pedophile.

It pretty much makes the ignore list meaningless.

You could have posted the same question without identifying the user on your ignore list. Even though you did not name the user, it is clear from your post who it is; doing so is not permitted outside of the Pit.

Please do not do this again. You have been warned.


vBulletin doesn’t support the feature you want.

However, you could use a Firefox extension that accomplishes this. Here’s one option:


Firefox extensions and Greasemonkey scripts are not supported by the SDMB. This post is for information purposes only, and does not qualify as endorsement for this or any other script.


Who’s he talking about?

PM me, or start a Pit thread so that the user can be named without any rules being broken by me or anyone else.

Let’s leave this thread to address the OP’s question.


I’ve been looking for a vBulletin add on for Firefox for a while now. I’d heard there was one, but no addon search ever revealed it. I was beginning to think it didn’t exist. How did you find it?

I also want to point out that the site is sometimes really slow. It will sit there loading long enough that you think it must be down, but, it will eventually work. Or, at least, it did for me. Anyone who wants it but is having problems can PM me. If I get more than a few requests, I may try copying it to another site, if legally permissable.

Here’s the same extension on the official Add-ons for Firefox page - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7023

Outside of ABP, this sounds easily like the next most useful Firefox plug-in for me. Thank you for this!

Oh. Em. Gee! It makes a person’s post completely disappear! None of that “You have chosen to ignore this person’s posts.” message. I am in message board heaven and it’s all thatnks to you xash.

Wow, this is great. Thanks for the link, xash!

I don’t think a warning is in order. She didn’t identify the poster, and it’s not clear who the poster is to anyone who did not read a certain thread or threads.

Yes, she could have posted the question without the example that caused her to ask it; but I think an official warning is not merited.

Concur. GloatyFlimpy was completely within the rules and, as a matter of fact, appears to have gone out of her way to do so. The warning should be rescinded.

This warning has been rescinded. My reasoning can be found in this thread:



don’t ask. :smiley:
