I have left other forums due to the lack of a killfile capability,The Oxford English dictionary gives this definition of forum:
• noun (pl. forums) 1 a meeting or medium for an exchange of views.
Am I the only one who feels that there a touch of the kindergarten about all this? Our two moderators do an excellent job of ensuring that the content of posts is decent and not abusive in any way. Do we really need a specific function to ignore other members?
