    Definitely sounds good to me. Mayhap a "personal mute" button, where each person could choose which "voices" of the forum/ thread they want to mute? That would also be handy for some of the more debate heavy topics, like primal homosexuality and primal religion.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        Sunday Troll probably isn't even a vegetarian. It's just an excuse to get in our faces and talk dirty. Early teenaged boy, IMO.


        Yes, we need a Sunday morning worker bee. Three weeks now, this should have been predictable. Someone could have been waiting.

          @naiadknight


          @naiadknight I tend to disagree with your idea of muting people in this context. This sort of feature is intended to prevent people like the sunday troll from causing disruption, not to censor topics that we disagree with. Though I do admit that some individuals occasionally post things that offend others, I believe it is better to simply rise above, or is that just me?


          Thanks for the support guys!

            Nono. Not full board censor. Say I don't wish to read X's posts in a certain thread because I find them offensive. I would be able to set it where I couldn't see X's comments in the thread (everyone else can, if they want to), while still being able to see everything else and they can continue to post.

              Mark and staff have said they're working hard on a new forum format that will have a bunch of the features everyone is asking about (and the ability to better block IP's, quickly bounce trolls out, etc.). They obviously know this is a problem and are working on it -- maybe we can cut them some slack while they sort it out?


              Sorry, but I get amazed at the demands people can make on a free forum like this... It's not like the MDA Team has been sitting on their butts: getting PrimalCon up and running, the 3/17 Amazon promotion (and all the follow-up that requires), continuing daily blog posts, trying to get out the new products (cookbook, fitness program, etc.), having the live forum next week... If someone doesn't have the patience to ignore the troll, then maybe skip logging in on Sundays until it's fixed?

                Once vBulletin is installed this won't be an issue. Working on getting vBulletin installed this week. Thanks, everyone, for your patience.

                  Sorry, Schadowrider, you're absolutely right.


                  If it's all a work in progress which involves writing new software, even more so.

                    *retracted*

                    i agree what pianodoctorlady said.

                      Well, sorry for a mini-rant; guess I just need to wear the same glasses Mark does, 'cause I wasn't seeing a whole lot of patience coming through on the tread :-)

                        I wasn't aware that this was under way already. Thanks for keeping us informed, and I look forward to seeing what's in store for the forum. Sorry if I sounded ungrateful, I was trying to suggest something helpful.


                        Thanks Mark for clearing up the mess

                          Schadowrider, what you said was right on track, IMO.


                          You made us aware that remedial action was already underway, and made us think twice about being ingrates.


                          Appreciated ...

                            @naiadknight I don't know, but I like to read all posts. Although, I can't really think about anything that could be said that i would consider "offensive".

                            Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."--Ferris Bueller, 1986
