On a forum of any significant size there will always be those whose posts irritate, anger and frustrate you, sometimes compelling you to post things that may inflame the discussion or that might fall outside of the forum rules.
An easy solution to this problem is to put these people on your ignore list, so their posts are automatically filtered out by the forum software.
There are two easy ways to do this:
1. Click on their user name and view their profile. At the top left of their profile you will see a list of options, one of which is Add to Ignore List. Simply click this option, then click Yes to confirm and they will immediately be added to your ignore list.
2. If you click on Settings you will see the option Edit Ignore List under the My Account heading. Simply click on this option to manually add and remove other members from your ignore list.
Although I do my best to enforce the rules and maintain order here at ASF, there's not much I can really do for those who get profoundly annoyed by the posts of another ASF member who posts within ASF's rules. At some point that person has to take some kind of proactive step to solve the problem. The ignore list is a very effective solution to this problem, will keep the peace and hopefully help you to retain your sanity.
I must make one additional point though. I will not look very kindly upon anyone who, after being informed that they have been placed on someone's ignore list, persists in making remarks about that person in their posts, or who continues to respond to their posts, knowing that person cannot see their replies. Once you have been told you have been placed on someone's ignore list, the onus is on you to back off and focus your energies elsewhere.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.
