    There's an old joke:

    Brash new artist: "What do you think of my work?"
    Tough art critic: "I don't."

    :d

    Sorry Steve, I couldn't read the above message because I'm ignoring you - which is also why, unfortunately, I cannot respond to it.

    And really it comes down to using tools/features to your advantage.

    Unfortunately, we did not program vBulletin: we only use it. If you need/want to put a staff member on ignore: please contact any senior moderator or advisor. They will put the person on your "forced ignore". No, you won't be able to peak at what they said, and you will have to ask staff to remove them should you want to interact with them again.

    Please confirm if you can what I am about to say Pete. Having a member on forced ignore messes with the way pages load, look, number etc.. Apparently it is a real PITA so reach this conclusion carefully.

    Since "Forced Ignore" is linked to your account, you can still read all their posts made in public forums.

    That's about right.

    Of course you can review the use of forum hosts for every little board.

    You may want something to drink with your popcorn.

    The use of Forum Hosts is actually a good thing. Giving them (limited) Moderator powers though is not without its side effects.
