Is there no way to ignore users on this forum?
There is not, nor is there likely ever to be such a feature, as the co-founder of Discourse (the forum software licensed by GoW devs) is philosophically opposed to the idea.
Discourse’s stance on user mute is so bizarre. It really doesn’t do anything positive for a community to not give people a tool to erase annoying and/or trollish people from their own experience on a forum.
There actually is a way to mute someone, but it requires some technical know-how and an ad blocker. All posts by an individual have a “data-user-id” attribute attached to them which can be filtered out. I tried it a year ago and it worked quite well at the time; but I personally prefer seeing everything (and now my role here requires it anyway!) so I don’t know if it still works.
