    may be referring to some posts by a particular person...some are quite lengthy, some a bit like a rant and there is usually minimal reaction....

    some? More like most. And it is almost a "stream of consciousness" where the poster just starts typing whatever comes to mind with no thoughts to grammar, or paragraphs... or sense.

    But who am I to judge! I just try to ignore the threads.

    It's easy enough to block people on Inside Flyer, just hover over your user name on the upper right side of the page and then select "People You Ignore" and type in the person's handle. Then you won't see any posts, replies, or other rants by that person! Much more relaxing experience....

    Negative. You still see any threads started by your ignored list (which I wish you didn't!)

    True, but you only see the headline title, when you click through, you get an empty page (unless someone else [stupidly] replied) so you don't see the actual post.

    It's a good idea, however, maybe they should not show us the entire thread started by people on the ignore list!!

    I am sure that's high on their list of enhancements to implement on this site :)

    I flagged some real spam nine days ago and it wasn't deleted. Tells you something.

    I'll be "happy" to do my first block. It will be nice to be rid of the clutter.
