    Actually what you encountered was someone trying to help you. I’ll do it again now. Click on my user name. It will take you to my account. To the right of that you’ll then see an ignore button. Away you go. 

    On the other hand you could moderate your tone; answer the questions you were asked which would enable us to start to deal with your query properly and then we’d start to get somewhere.

    HI,

    I'm sorry to hear you feel this way. We are very friendly here and we have some very knowledgeable members.
    I've read your other thread and i can only see that Mike was trying to help you. It is very difficult to read someone's tone through text and a tone can often be read as something completely different to what is was intended to be.
    As Mike advised, you can add a person to your ignore list or alternatively you can contact Scope to have your account delated by emailing them at this address. [email protected]

    We can no longer see private accounts on here so I don't think it's possible to block them that way either.  Just get a page that says 'permission problem' with no other options.  Not sure how long it's been like that as I tried to look at 2 different accounts this week but was denied.  :#

    Hi @CheesedOff I am sorry you feel this way. I do understand as I joined six weeks ago and felt exactly the same. I wonder if new people are seeing things more clearly. There are some knowledgeable people on the site but I have to say from my own experience not all  are friendly. Please do not let one bad experience put you off.

    Interesting. I made it private solely because two individuals on here decided to post abuse on my wall having been told off by the admins for their responses to me. I had no intention of stopping people ignoring me although it’s amusing me no end now.

    You can still put a member on ignore by going into your profile to edit it. There you will find the ignore feature, put a members name into the box and click ok. Quite easy really.

    Interesting to clock who actually liked the first post on this thread. Very telling.

    Over the years I have been a member of a number of forums, some quite small and niche others as big as they get, the one thing this forum has is that overall it is extremely friendly, the people really nice and some of the advice the best you will find.
    But it has one thing in common with every forum out there, you have to get to know it and give it time to find your way around.
    Like many things in life patience is something that will pay dividends.

    If you want to delete your account you would need to email them, at least I did when I deleted my previous account.
