No, there isn't such a feature.
However, if you see posts that are devoid of content, please use the Report function to report them to the moderating team. If one or more posters consistently are posting such unconstructive content, they will be dealt with.
I dunno... I think a Squelch button would be a really nice feature.
Couldn't disagree more.
I'm with Amlord - if the content of the messages you dislike is against
rules (which includes posts that are just non-constructive) then report them, and
will be a better place.
If the posts conform to the rules, but you just don't like
what they say or how they say it, then that's your problem, and not
If there was functionality to blot out everything from people you don't like or opinions that you disagree with, then
would stop being a debate board and start being a "nothing that's likely to shake my world view or proffer any views that are appreciably different from my own" board.
Such things already exist. They're called diaries. Or, more controversially, the traditional media; isn't that why people choose to watch Fox News, the BBC or read the New York Times? Because such outlets mostly confirm what they someone already thinks rather than challenging them in any way?
