"Thanks so much for pointing out the ignore button to me.  I have used it for two posters and feel like I have taken tweezers and pulled off two ticks from my body.   "

@Epster Thank you so much for your helpful information.

@Soosie  I hear that!

 

@easyed598 (and Soosie) There is an ignore feature on this forum. To engage it, click on a would-be ignored's icon. Once on their page, you'll see an ignore button on the right hand side at about the mid-level. 

 

I take this quite a bit further. Back when I was being harassed by a couple of posters, I created spam filters in my personal email account that deleted certain types of messages including their screen names without me ever seeing those messages. Bliss, I tell ya; bliss. Smiley Happy

 

To break my habit of looking in on the political forum (kinda like looking at a car wreck as you drive by, no?) I did the same for (an undisclosed number) of daily posters to that forum. Again, total bliss.

 

I also have my AARP account set so that I am not automatically subscribed to any thread to which I reply. This means I have to purposely seek out new posts to a thread (or that someone I've not effectively blocked has to at-reply me). Which is nice, as I'm currently overbooked in my private life, so deleting a bunch of emails --read or unread-- just isn't making my to-do list. Smiley Happy 

 

I sincerely hope this helps you find the balance you seek relative to the toxicity of our current, uh, civil discourse.

 

God bless.

@Soosie  PS: Just to be clear: those "certain types of emails" that I have my personal email acct delete unopened include when I am at-replied by someone I do not care to interact with as well as when those individuals post on a thread to which I am subscribed.  My acct allows me to filter stuff by sender, subject, key words, type of email, size of email, blah di blah and so on. Smiley Wink) This array of filtering options works well. I do suggest that while you fine tune your email filtering, you set things to go to a separate folder (not your inbox) rather than directly to the trash, for once deleted, at least in my acct, they are not readable. Sending them to a separate folder allows you to check to see how your filtering is working. Hopefully your email account allows such detailed filtering options.

 

Best regards,

e

I have one poster I just do not reply to he is just so ignorant to everyone. He is, I have been there done that and he knows it all.  He seems to think he is better than everyone on here.

 

I just read and go on. It's hard to take be critized, but it goes with many of the topics, many of which I read and go on. 

 

Just don't engage and make yourself become a whipping post so to speak. But if your negative you will get negative responses if people disgree.  Many times the WAY you disagree, and the WORDS you use to disagree will be the cause of the responses you get in return.

Soosie posted..

I want to block the posts from a user in one of the communities. I have searched, but can't find a way to do this. Can someone give me this information?

==========================================================

As far as a know there is no way to block posts.

Years ago there was. There was a ignore feature you could check ... why they did away with it I am not sure but I wish they would bring it back.

There are three posters that when they post to me I just do not answer.

So for myself its not easy but learned few years ago "SOMETIMES THE BEST RESPONSE IS NO RESPONSE" and I must let it go if i'm being bothered and losing my peace over the issue. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I agree with GM -You should also consider the source and just ignore or delete  the response email. Three fourths  of AARP emails, I  do just that with the more irrational  posters.
