Seriously, someone please ban this guy. He is just adding noise to the forum and my email inbox for weeks.

I have completely given up on constructive discussion and indeed reading the posts, and would rather not miss stuff from other people that's actually important. Not sure I'd go for a ban, but a strong behaviour warning is, to me, very warranted now.

I think if you "Add Foe" in a user's profile, it should hide their posts from you.

I was trying to avoid that, but I've now done so, and it still shows all other threads, newish feature for phpBB, never tried it before. (by newish, I mean it's less than ten years old, natch).

It still shows anyone else's posts, and you can unhide a single post by the offensive user if you suspect it might contain something worth reading.

I don't know if this affects emails, as I don't use that feature.
