The IGNORE feature allows you to ignore Members who annoy you. Use this feature BEFORE resorting to reporting any posts or posters to the moderators!
You may want to keep this info handy as you work by opening a new tab/window to work in

(I added a modification.
To IGNORE someone in the Chat Room:
To ignore messages submitted by a particular chatter, click on his/her name from the online list and then click Ignore
. Messages from ignored chatters are still visible in history. Note that the Ignore feature in Chat is separate from the Ignore feature in the forums and must be re-enabled each time you enter the room. If someone is purposely disrupting the room or is posing a genuine danger to someone, you can request that any Admin or Moderator come in and boot them. A list of Admins, Global Moderators, and Moderators is at the bottom of every page of the forums.
To IGNORE a particular board on RC, like the Rage Cage (politics & religion):
First, we are NOT a political or religious board; those tend to be more homogeneous, so here you're going to encounter a wider, more diverse lot of viewpoints. But there's a reason political boards tend to become homogeneous echo chambers: because people don't tend to enjoy conflict. So with that said, if the Rage Cage annoys you, PUT THAT FORUM ON IGNORE AND DO NOT GO IN THERE! To put a forum on Ignore:Profile > Modify Profile > Ignore Boards Options > tick the boards you want to Ignore
Note that this is an incomplete and old modification to our board software, so topics from that forum may still show up in your "Show new replies to your posts" or "View the most recent posts on the forum" lists, so watch to ensure you don't blunder in there by mistake.
