I think quite a number of people on here know who the trouble makers & s**t stirrers are. I know I have about 8 blocked already. If we want to keep this forum going for the purposes it has always served then let’s all block them. They can argue away till they lose the will to live & everyone else can just carry on posting as normal. If you have a poster blocked just carry on through & pretend they are not even there, move on to the next worthwhile post(er)

Totally agree. Eight blocks have transformed the forum for me. I am now enjoying it again. You have the option of looking at a blocked post so every month or so I look at one at random to check they are still posting rubbish. They always are

Isn’t it just wonderful, you can now sit back and spout any old rubbish and not be criticized as you believe this forum should be a mutual admiration society. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if life were like that.

Only been looking in on here for about 15 years and in my ignorance always thought that was what questions and queries was for. As were all the other catagories for specific subjects. And general chat was exactly that ...general, from which brexit was never officially excluded. Again as far as I am aware.

Those wishing to block are at liberty to do so, but not knowing or particularly caring whether I am one of them, I will carry on responding to posts as I see fit and will continue to take the forum as it comes warts and all... as I always have.

If you wish to block please do so...it's your right,, but don't keep telling me about it.

You see, it works perfectly. After Gramster's "Thank you", I have four ignored posts I don't need to read. And if this post elicits further troll responses I can ignore them too.  It is a bit like a strip of duck tape over their mouths - you can take it off but it is not advisable.

You don't need to read them no, but I'm pretty sure you do. The curiosity far outweighs the outrage.

And if you don't ?....we are all happy then.

That would have started the ball rolling post referendum dag  but I'm afraid you need more than that these days...

As we both appear to be one of the dreaded eight nobody can see you abusing me, so feel free to give it your best shot.

Unless of course the blockers are peeking. ;)

lmfao, like a fat kid to a piece of cake I guarantee this muppet reads EVERY post he's chosen to hidden.

I would be interested to know however, for those that do indulge in using that magical ignore button, just how many of them identify as a left winger.
My guess is 90%+

Exactly this.
"post what I like or I will block you"

They should go look at the history books, they'll find that this was tried before, it didn't end too well.

Sticking your head in the sand and hoping all will be different when you pull it out is strange way of dealing with a problem.

Plus why bother to block when you can easily avoid the threads you don't like just by looking at the title and the original poster. There's plenty I find not to my taste so I just don't read them, but then I'm not trying to make a statement.

On a lighter note if I was a blocker I would be taking a look for sure,  and I'm positive they are no different to me. So you can rest assured we are being silently observed. ;)

Of course they’re peeking.
Im getting it hard to find a good right hook to let go because they’ll know I’m shadow boxing 🥊. Lol
I’m not sure about them being left wingers as sparkfart says but their defiantly right whingers which trumps politics anytime. A whinger is a whinger is a whinger.

For once you may be right but I’d say your a close 2nd if you haven’t actually beaten me. Maybe I should block you.
No i won’t, I’d prefer to read your lunatic posts than be sent to sleep by Beachfart sorry beachcraft no beach oh whatever. I think I’ll block him when I remember his name.

Ps can’t help laughing at the thought of beachwhatshisname farting in the bath, what a load of bubbles 💨🌬💨. I know I won’t offend him as he had me blocked.

I am happy to have a debate with anyone who wishes to make sensible points without just posting inane comments. Nobody should have a closed mind, however pointless having a discussion with some people if they are not willing to move from their own point of view  or have a closed mind to any other view. However when it wanders into a waste of time as people move from making debating points to immature comments such as when on your cruise do ....... etc then its a sign that the people are not after a debate but have another agenda. Personally I was in the 1970`s very pro integrating with Europe, however as I read more and experienced the university of life and debated with others my views changed with rational debate.

You have a view on whether to block or not, for me I reluctantly have decided to block some people, as I know it`s not worth engaging with closed minds, as when you do it`s a waste of my time. While I share some of your views on other issues, on the issue of peeking I can assure you that I am not a peeker.

Hi Gramster, go to “profile” then “forum profile” then lmodify profile” then “buddies/ignore list” that should do it for you. Best thing I did in a long time 😁😁
