I see in the profile section there is an ignore list (and one for following) how does one populate this list?

My life would be better if I could spare myself the content offered here by several members.

Personally, I control how good of a life I have and don't give others that power.

When you click on member handle - it will pop up personal information and ignore button.
Personally I never ignored anybody. No matter how drastic opinions one might have, it is good thing to exchange the opinions and often controversial opinions are quoted in other replies, so when you block 1 member, you are loosing track what other members are talking about.

I agree that blocking members because you don't like their opinions is a bad idea. That is where echo chambers come from.

In my years on the list, I have blocked exactly four members (only two of whom are still around). I did so not because I didn't like their opinions, but for repeated, blatant ad hominem attacks. That, I just can't stomach.

P.S. -- While we are on the topic, let me repeat my frequent plea for an "ignore thread" feature. There is presently no way to scan the entire content stream without being forced to scan the same very long list of threads that don't interest me over and over again. Such a feature would vastly streamline the list for those of us who wish to see all new topics.

To populate Ignore members, click on the Members icon, and then a sub window shows up. Click the Ignore button.

Understand, but I think it a chance I am willing to take. and the risk is only that you loose track of what one person is talking about.

when the amount of drivel overtakes the amount of useful and respectful information, it is not worth my time.
