Is there a way to block certain MP members?

I'm new to the site and really love it.  Just back climbing after a 15 year layoff and I do not remember any such resources when I was climbing in the 80's-2003.  

Really great place but there are a few trolls here that are just painful to have to wade through when reading threads.

Is there anyway to block an MP member so that you do not see their threads and any of their replies to others?

I did a forum search and could not find any answers.  

Thanks.

Okay.  Thanks. 

Guess I'll take the good with the small amount of not-so-good.

What if they’re just insufferable noobs?

Ahh, the Killfile!  Rc.noob had that feature back in the day.  I never used it then, but I would definitely use it these days on here.

How about Nick Wilder set a troll trap thread! And drop the Ban hammer on all who enter!

Can we ban Buck Rogers for trolling?

Prolly wouldn't work. Trolls are not dumb (at least so i am told) - contrary to popular belief.

I’ve been in other forums where you could basically import/write scripts to personally block users from what you viewed, although I don’t think it would block embedded quotes.  I suspect it could result in what appears to be disjointed conversations; also, not sure if this required exporting forum messages into some other viewing platform.

TLDR: There are probably ways, but they’ll be difficult at best as nothing is buit into the MP platform.

IIRC, that was something (a script, probably) that was user written, not a native feature of rc.com (RIP).

Was it something I said?
