I'd like to see an SMF mod that provide me with an option in my profile to block every posting made by gri and every posting that is a reply to a posting by gri.

*** This is not a joke or a troll ***

I am seriously losing my patience with all of this and I am already visiting DC's forums less often and am starting to think about implementing some filters and not reading the random posts that often unveiled some interesting gem I wouldn't have seen otherwise. This would also mean visiting the forums indirectly via web watcher or some equivalent instead of directly, as I do now.

SO, if there exists a MOD for SMF that allows members to block all posting of chosen member(s), please install it on DC.com.

* update * I will make a donation to anybody who can find such a mod and provide the info to mouser to install it.

The Proxomitron is very effective for this *if* you know how to use it well.

I applaud those that refuse to commit "intellectual suicide."

Truth, unlike opinion, tradition, etc. will always be able to stand on its own.  Truth is not a static, but a living entity and will perpetually impart life; therefore, any "truth" that does not or can not impart life can not be Truth.

I am persuaded the only reason bad men have succeeded is not because good men have done nothing, but that good men did not do enough.

I cannot agree with you more, Tinjaw. I also find myself in desperate need of such a mod for filtering out every post made by gri and esp. any post that contains link to his so-called "forum". I'm reluctant to ignore the whole forum section (SMF Forum Mods) here but I'm finding gri's posts getting increasingly (and sometimes extremely) disturbing and annoying, so what can I do?  Sad

(And as one of the Global Moderators here, I really don't think it's appropriate for me to ignore any forum section as a whole.)


To Farmsteader, Tinjaw, and Mouser:

Since I'm not at all familar with such mods and tools, I really would like to thank you all for your efforts! Thmbsup

I will add the ignore mod this week if at all possible.
There is another possibility - perhaps I can modifiy the ignore mod so that all it does is mark all posts by that person as automatically READ.  How would that be?  Then you wouldn't notice them unless you really went looking.

I tried to just do this locally, but I have a snag due to my lack of experience using regex.

snag due to my lack of experience using regex.

Basic tutorial on Regular Expressions here

I'm pretty sure there's an O'Reilly book on just that topic.  Otherwise, the Aho, Kernighan and Weinberger book "The AWK Programming Language" has a good section on regular expressions.

Sorry, can't help you further.  I've never used Proxomitron.

I've found it irritatating that regexps are entered rather differently on the command line than they are in an AWK script, wrapped up in colons instead of forward-slashes, or whatever.  That's probably a hangover from conversion from Unix, with differences in the way the shell handles awkward characters.  As an aside, WebSite-Watcher has a nice wizard that takes much of the donkeywork out of assembling regexps.

I've just been going backwards through the Best of Blog and am wondering if it would be possible to have page links e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4 etc rather than "read older"? There's lots of stuff back there that I'd like to catch up on, but it's a bit tedious always having to start at the newest (on each visit, not session)and work slowly back.

Thanks,
Clive

Mouser,
The collective brain has been of great assistance to me either solving a problem directly or pointing me ,often unknowingly, to a solution.
A salute to everyone who takes the time to post & to you for the your dedication to your ideals.

Maybe a special page where members can list their projects, or offer their computer-related services (web design, programming, art, etc.). ... Another idea: ... we could show random boxes with info about member sites.
I like this, especially the "another idea". It seems to me that it's not really advertising. It's almost "fun information" about the community, that might be better targeted to the rest of the community than, say, google ads (although it may need to be policed for abuse).

FWIW, I'm not worried about the censorship angle that's been discussed here. For one thing, this is a private site and not subject to the 1st Amendment. But more importantly, we're not talking about gagging anyone, simply allowing individuals to be selective about what they consume. There's no obligation for me to listen to what someone else says.

Regarding karma, I would mention that /. uses karma, and I refuse to read that site anymore due to the density of offensive flaming, vapidity, and knee-jerk contrarianism. I don't know if these facts are related at all, but it bears considering. Perhaps if only paid members can award karma, the need to put your money where your mouth is would avoid the /. cesspool.

The only one I can think of now is this one: Instead of showing "You have x messages" in the top window, why not showing "You have x new messages". I think is quite logical, and it doesn't make me go wondering: how many messages did I have last day?

Yes, Wordzilla, but still the result is sorted by date only, and if you are to quote what it was mouser wrote some while ago, then you will have to search through hundreds and hundreds of posts - because you couldn't remember excatly when or where he wrote it, but you think that most likely he wrote about it when we talked about this or that - narrowing the places / pages you'll have to search through.

I'd like to see an SMF mod that provide me with an option in my profile to block every posting made by gri and every posting that is a reply to a posting by gri.

From the connection I think I can understand what a "gri" is. But my dictionary had no idea - and I have no idea - why it is "gri". So before I might be blocked I would very much like to know the translation of gri ? please!

Well I hate to bring this up but if you are curious, go to our SMF Forum Mods section and experience the full power of gri.  Wink

This is gri and these are his posts.

But you really won't appreciate the full effect unless you see it in the SMF section, as wordzilla mentioned.
