    Well, I spent some time and found out that we aren't limited to the gray box for ignoring names. I just kept adding names, made 5 lines, and lost 40 - 50 pages in the 3 forums I kept track of. I've given up on Bonnier people until things get back to normal. So, keep ignoring the bastidges, we'll find out how many names it takes to max out the account page.

      Block anyone who posts comments that make Trump look like a clown, such as this:

        Good to know franchi20! Thanks.
        I'll give it a whirl.

            It wasn't there until you put it there. So, I should bock you?

              If you want all your news from Trrump-friendly sources, you want to block me.

                I get my information from the local newspaper (Gannett owned, seriously left), local news/talk radio seriously right, and local TV CBS affiliate media left leaning but knowing where they are, tamp it down some. Interweb sources are very unreliable and are notoriously biased and can be quoted to support any point.

He's an important man in the organization and puts his email address in each issue, so I don't want to burn bridges.

                  This has gone on for almost a month. We need better service.
                  Is Natalie still there ?

                  Why doesn't Colin give a couple of us limited access just enough to control spam ?

                    Giving members access to delete spam is a dangerous thing.
                    It would surely be abused.
                    Natalie is still there, but this is not her job.

                      I posted earlier about what seems to be unlimited blocking on your account site. It has freed up a whole bunch. It would be a nightmare if this what we have to do to keep this site any where near what it was. When you consider what this site was 5 years ago, I prefer that over what it is now.

                        It's an election year, and it hurts to see stuff like this:

                        "More than 200 retired generals, admirals endorse Biden, including some who served under Trump."

                          I've blocked 44 names making 5 1/2 lines and getting rid of 60 pages on Other alone. Just by using the ignore feature, but it takes time. Those pages went back to the second week in August.

                            Good.
                            Then you won't see this.

                                From Danbo: "Your efforts are not working!"

                                No, they are not! I have put around 30 bots on my ignore list, and it grows daily. JHJimbo has the idea that Bonnier Corp. is contracting their IT service. I they are, they aren't getting much for their money.
