    Can’t ignore members who just keep posting services

    Why can’t members ignore/block posts from members who post nothing but ads?

    Whenever I browse the timeline, I see too many posts that are nothing but services ad. I clicked on the two members’ names to check their posting history. They only post ads so I have no interest in seeing any of their posts and don’t want their posts littering my browsing.

    I tried to ignore/block but I couldn’t.

    I got a System Message for both of them that said: “Sorry XXXXXXX is a moderator/admin and you are not allowed to ignore him or her.”

    Those particular members are forum advertisers and we need the revenue to help keep the site running.

    If you are trying to block a moderator/admin, you cannot do so. If you don't want to read posts by another member, don't open them if you can't block them.

    Like "frail" mentioned, someone has to pay for this forum and the members are not the ones having to pay the bill. That is why there are paid advertisers.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....
