LWJCarroll: No thanks I am pro free speech etc.....I wouldnt regard this forum as an open discussion with people free to express their views if this was implimented.....It would just turn into a narrow "in" bunch of groupies......and it shuts down the flow of info from varying view points...Rgds....Laurie
I am all for free speech, except when someone steps on anyone else's rights. People will continue to express their views in posts - but if one person doesn't want to read from that poster than their own personal topic is filtered.
It's not like one user plonking someone will cut that person's speech forever from everyone's view.
networkn: Again, not a single positive reason to have something like this implemented. Way to alienate a user base and to make the board seem unfriendly for new users.
Why? Anyone has all right to not read someone else's writing. If someone annoys you when repeating the same thing over and over, then hiding this person's post might be what you need.
As I said, if YOU hide someone's posts, it's not hiding from anyone else's stream, only from yours.
Again: plonking means filtering YOUR view and it's private, not public.
