It seems some people don't check whose posts they are replying to.
Can I ignore someone „actively" so that their posts don't show up?
What does it matter who replies if they give useful information?
I don't understand that either. Do you mean that you want to be able to read through a Thread without seeing any Replies in it that were posted by X?
Sure. But something's only I see after I have deemed a poster to be aggressive or a whiner. Each of us might have a different view of who to avoid. But when I say I will never click that particular users thread again it would be nice to have some means to actually do it. Like I can tag so that whenever I see their name again they have the whiner badge or the overly aggressive badge or the id-10-t badge.
That's the point. Some people seem to think I'm too stupid to connect an resistor. I guess they just don't check who they are talking to and they ask for schematics for a circuit that is as simple as pie. And without schematics they don't give any useful information (they say without schematics they can't).
I just don't want to see if they wrote anything. Since this forum doesn't support threading that wouldn't „hurt" or something.
So you see comment threads where people are missing parts of the conversation that everyone else can see and it just ends up in a lot of confusion. That's no big deal on Facebook since usually nobody is doing anything productive on there anyways.
How is anyone supposed to know, "who you are". ...
