Blocking users (how to)

Sorry to post this here, and please tell me if it should be posted somewhere else or shouldn't be posted. I just want to give the tool to have a more comfortable forum experience to other forum users, as I understand it's an inconvenience to implement such feature (blocking) in the forum, and also I understand others may feel like me in terms of being just annoyed by certain users who seem to post over and over again with SUPER arrogant tones, adding nothing (or little) of value to the conversation and making the place just worst.... honestly I am impressed by IL staff's patience. People should be reminded that using this forum is a privilege, not a right...

If you want to hide any specific user's posts in this forum (given that there's no feature implemented natively to do so), here's how to, using Adblock (https://getadblock.com/).

1) Pick the user you want to block
Let's say you want to block me. Find a post where I say stuff you'd prefer not to see... and click on my name to inspect element.
Select your annoying target...
Then, inspecting element you will find my user id number... as shown in this little picture.
You can also check that number by hovering you mouse over the user name and checking your browsers hint of where that link directs you to.
Get their ID
Write that and keep it for later use....

2) Tell Adblock to hide all of that user's posts
Click the extension button, go to options, customize and on the bottom editable text box, press edit and put the following (for each user you want it's posts hidden):

Code: Select all

forum.image-line.com#?#:-abp-has(> div.inner > dl > dt > a[href="./memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=XXXZZYY"])
Where XXXZZYY is the user id... just replace XXXZZYY with the number you got in step 1.
Some code I came up that actually does the job
Save, reload the page, and done! No more seeing annoying posts... happy headache-free forum surfing.
