There is a certain poster on the board I participate in that posts non-sensical items incessantly. In some threads, their posts constitute 50% of the thread, and it's rare that this poster posts anything even remotely useful. Often, posts are nothing more than 'smilies'. It's completely out of control, and I can't do anything about it, other than not read 90% of threads. I find myself shying away from the board more and more. It's overwhelming, and I know others feel the same.
I don't want to curb their enthusiasm, so perhaps an alternate solution exists. If you were to introduce an ignore button, I think it would help filter out a lot of the noise. Many other forums have it, and it proves a useful tool.
Is Chowhound able to implement such a tool?
