Proboards does provide a mechanism for ignoring posters you don't like. Here's how to do it.
Go to your profile page. Click Edit Profile. Click Privacy tab. At bottom is a "Block Member" box. Enter username of person you want to ignore. Some options come up. Select appropriate options. Click "Save Privacy" settings.
That's all there is to it. When you "block" a user you should be able to read everyone's comments/messages except the person whose name you have blocked.
There's no need to put up with reading messages from people whom you dislike or whose messages you think are consistently annoying. So the blocking function is made available to you.
I really dislike having to ban anyone except when a poster clearly and repeatedly violates the rules stated in Forum Decorum. So it would help me out if you would simply "block" that user, which lets that user continue to have a voice.
Thanks for your cooperation.
Moderation in all things.

elir: It is hard enough to lose someone you love but to have no resolution, all those years. I cant imagine. Hope that other people that have been through this can give them support.
