Does anyone know if there is a way to block certain users, or posts from those users? There'es just some people that don't seem to get the concept of a "board", and while I DO understand what OT means, I don't really understand why, or approve of it. IMO if you want to post about things that don't relate to LBYM, this is the Internets. I'm sure you can find the proper venue... elsewhere.

Mind you - I am not really criticizing those people directly - I just personally don't want to see their posts. (but you repeat offenders know who you are)

Anyone know if this can be done?

If you'd taken the time to read the trailer below your post you'd have seen the "Ignore Thread" option link.

The poster did bring up one point that you are one of the significant contributors to OT posts. TMF created Social Clubs for people who want to gather a bunch of friends to discuss whatever pops in your head. From the looks of it, you want the attention you get from a larger audience here.

Sometimes posters feel 'closer' with certain boards and see something that is OT that they want to post and think that many of that board's posters might enjoy. I think OT does work.

Just ignore the posts/threads that don't interest you. There will always be things/posters you don't want to read.

And what's worse is that sometimes people post things on the LBYM board that are clearly off-topic -- and yet these people don't even place "OT:" in the subject line.

Boy, are they annoying!

Yup thanks that did it - and except for the clear butthurt of the person in question - who obviously knows he attentionwhores here, and the standard internet bitch comment "If you had read the blah blah blah", let me say thanks to the general community. No offense was intended really to anyone - just wanted to filter out useless nonsense from the board.

*FYI- while the CONTENT of this thread was not about LBYM - I see what you did there - it was about the LBYM board itself, thus making it applicable

sorry 0/10 failtroll

Funny thing. I have no qualms about people posting OT.
There is much to be learned in this life and who knows when that little kernal of information coming to you from an OT poster might be something valuable or give you something to think about.
As I look out my window I can see the new World Trade Center. Oh, they are calling it the Freedom Tower but we New Yorkers know better.
It is a constant reminder of how lucky I am to be here.
So, big deal if someone posts OT. I can only think that the people complaining are doing so because they have nothing better to do.

Talk about OT - really? Invoke 9/11 for some bizarre reason?

FYI I live in NYC and was AT Ground Zero the next day. So I *do* have the moral standing to say you're out of line bringing that up. Im happy you got some perspective in your life that day - as did I - but bringing it up in this context is ridiculous. Im not censoring people or even asking that people respect the board (though I believe they should) - I was asking how I can block people I find a nuisance.

Shame on you.

It isnt about having nothing better to do - there are 5 million places to post nonsense like this:

You are so new, you squeak.
Spend more time listening to the regulars and becoming familiar with the culture of the board.

Or go away.
Either will do.

Thank you! I posted to this board ten years ago and then stopped because of a very scary person.
When I came back I was so happy to see that the "regulars" were still here.
They chat like old friends and that's one of the things I like best about the LBYM board.

Agreed! (although when politics comes up, look out! :)

Speaking of off topic, would it be off topic to have a discussion about the article on the front page talking about personal finance guru's ruining everyone's life, or at the least not being helpful? Or is there somewhere to discuss articles already, aside from the comments below it. Just interested to hear this boards take on it, as I think people like Dave Ramsey and Suze Orman, although not perfect, have definately helped some people to better financial lives.
