Ructions and how to deal with them.
With the seemingly never ending squabble going on between certain parties at the moment, I have been reflecting on how you can't just put every type of person in a room and expect them ALL to get along. There will always be those who can't stand eachother and for whom it would benefit everybody if they were not to interract. I have certainly known a few individuals here who I would have preferred not to have encountered, and I'm sure there have been a few who felt the same way about me. Fortunately, in my case, most of my problem parties either left or got themselves banned, but for the problems that remain, I think it might help keep things calmer in future if we were able to ignore any individual who continually rubs us up the wrong way.
Here is a Vanilla module that implements an ignore feature http://vanillaforums.org/addon/ignore-plugin
I appreciate that not everyone will agree with this suggestion, but I'm sure Sebastian and Michael with take that into consideration.
