Hi guys!

I was wondering if you were aware of this nifty new Drupal module IGNORE USER.

"This module allows a user to "ignore" content from other users that they do not wish to view. This module allows a user to "ignore" content from other users that they do not wish to view.Node and comment content from an ignored user is hidden from view on a page. A message is displayed above the hidden block of content with a link to the user's "ignore list" and a link to toggle display of the ignored user's block of content in that node or comment."

This could be a godsend to those poor users who feel threatened by an opinion that does not agree with their own view of the world!

Agreed Bacon needs this

Please allow him to ignore, well almost everyone, since his opinion is the only one that counts.

Blessed are they that knoweth all.

Fahrenheit Ignore User

Just as in the book noted, don't let people read what they don't want to know! Isn't it 411 degrees of ignorance?

How about you actually referring to the right name

for the book. Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradury's book. 451 degrees actually meant something.

I said nothing about Bradbury or 457 degrees!

Also, 411 actually means "something."

Always nice to hear from a Drupal aficionado

Chris, no, I did not know about that module. Question is: Drupal 6 or the still-in-beta Drupal 7?

Thanks for the tip.

(Is there a module where a critical mass of users could vote an offensive user into a "time out" room or "cooler" for a short period? Now there's one I could really use.)

Cal: would you mind defining....

"critical mass of users," and "offensive user," and "time out," & "cooler?"

You already have "edited," "blocked," and a new one now where one can't comment further on a specific thread!

About the only thing left for you would be "censored."

I will have to say though that you have stopped being ridiculous about personal opinions lately, and maybe could do a little more editing for some foul mouthed ones! "Bleep them," you know!

While you are reading this (if you do) how about letting us comment on the "lady ads" on the comments pages?

Also, do you think that the law suit now indicating that the TEAS are infected with racists, bigots, KKKers, etc., is true or not?

And, are those who are preaching their great love and affection for our Constitution and who want to amend it in 4-5 areas ASAP, serious?

They also greatly confuse the Preamble with amendments and the Constitution itself! And....think the Constitution says nothing about a state religion being used by leaders!
Everyone here needs to live a Christian life since we are a Christian Nation!

This runs under Drupal 6.

Wasn't able to find a "time out/cooler" module but here is one with promise The Drupal 'Cave Your Trolls' project

This allows an admin to place a user temporarily into something called a "troll cave".

The user can still post all they like, but they alone (and admins, of course) will be able to see their posts, in other words other users will be spared their prolific vitriol.
