Ignore / Block Function

Postby plwk » Wed Oct 12, 2011 5:45 am

Dear Admin & Mods,

As I recall back in the now defunct E-Sangha, there was a facility/function which allows one to block postings of ignored users from one's view in forum sections' threads, where one gets a message in the thread itself that goes something like 'This posting is from an ignored user' and then has an option of either maintaining it that way or one can unblock it.

Is this function possible with the current DW setup?

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Go to "control panel" and there you will find "friends and foes" option. You'll need to enter in the names of those you want block.

I don't think it does, Peter. Though I am sure David will be able to clarify.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Greetings,

I don't think it blocks PMs, but if you're getting unwarranted PMs, ask the person to desist from sending you PMs, and if they continue to pepper your inbox, feel free to forward the relevant correspondence through to staff for review.

Metta,

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Personal messages from foes are still permitted.


Thank you to tilt for this reminder on 'Friends & Foes'...I totally forgot about it
