Is the an "ignore poster" capability on this forum, which enables one to eliminate posts by one or more posters being displayed ? Sorta like the Usenet killfile idea.

No, sorry ! Not as a regular option anyway. If you can find an additional module, please pm me so I can discuss it with Neven

I think the feature may be built into this SMF platform, possibly you just turn it on as an administrator:

Folks, my 2 cents:
The whole Forum is - in a way - about possibility of killing too much of everything important to us (as the specie).
Overall problem is too complex, Killfile do not helps here, we should work on our communication skills and on our way to deal with annoying stuff and try not to exclude anyone.
Killfiling do not removes the problem.

Hey, i thought killfiles would block posts matching rules from appearing in my browser in the discussion forum, not just in personal messages matching the rule to be blocked ?

i added a rule in the settings under  "my messages" but it doesn't seem to work in the forum threads.

i am probly doing sumpn wrong ? guidance requested

It's buried in an odd spot, but OSweetMrMath was able to help me find it:
If you view your Profile, there's an option for "Buddies/Ignore List" under Modify Profile. Not the most obvious place, true.

I lurked without registering for years.  It really improves the s/n for me.  And the occasional quote from a person ignored confirms that I am not missing anything of significance.   Peace out.
