Look, this has nothing to do with my no longer being a moderator. I merely asked if there were a way not to have to read stuff written by some people. At one time, I believe there was. Apparently there is no such facility, so it's no big deal.

I thought a subscription is not required to join the forum?

Why would anyone be banned from a free forum, especially if they have to reply to a rude comment?

Actually, thinking about it this seems like a good idea: I ban someone, they are furious and so take out a subscription to ChessPublishing.com just so that they can get back on the Forum and answer! Roll Eyes
Could be a real money-spinner for the site! Wink

Yes, block posts and pms. From the usual suspects. Tony - you really should step up and suspend, ban those whose consistent efforts try to destroy this online community.




Who is trying to "destroy" Chesspub? How are they accomplishing this?

I have no objection to anyone blocking pm's to themselves or blocking what they see from other's posts (although I agree with SF)...but if that's what you want - why do you need banning on top of that?

And exactly what is being destroyed?

While we've been discussing this, and the Markovich resignation, the board has gone on...

As long as we're submitting proposals, and seeing as though people fear the pristine threads will be infected by vitriol, why not just create a new section, and label it "controversies" or "polemics."

That way, if SF or some other moderator doesn't like how a thread is going, he/she can move the offending posts to a quarantined zone. I'm certain the forum will survive.

I want to block ... posts.  But no big deal, if it's too hard for you.

I can't find anything on the YaBB site about this facility, so it seems it is not written into the software.

I don't mind blocking PMs, but posts is another matter.

In most threads, each post constitutes part of a conversation. If the post is inappropriate to the thread, the moderator can move it or delete it, but to automatically block all posts from a person goes against my idea of how a forum should work.

Any chance of it coming back Tony K?

You can block PMs from certain people in the UserCP, or do you all want to block posts?

IIrc, blocking was removed some years ago, unfortunately.

I couldn't see a facility for doing this.
