I'm active in a photography forum, where if you don't want somebodies incessantly negative, combative posts to be a part of your online experience, you can put that individual on "ignore". (Sort of like finally killing that annoying mosquito in your tent at night.) Does this forum have that?
Yes it does and now would be a great time for a few of our members to use it.
