There are so people on here that are pro-ana, pro-mia, fat-shamers, etc. I would really like to be able to report/block them from communicating with me.

Also can you PLEASE give us a notification icon?!

You can 'block' people if they have sent you mail.
Otherwise, you can 'ignore' them if you keep seeing their posts on the board.

There is a report post button below your weightloss ticker. Click it and then you can tell the mods what is up.

Apparently there is a way to block people because I've heard others do it but I haven't used it yet so can't help there.

also, MFP forums are in the lower rings of hell. If you particpate in them, you can expect to be exposed to a lot of pretty revolting behavior.

<--- under my pic, there is a box with an upside down triangle. Click it. You can ignore a user that way. They can still see what you post, though.

See that little upside down triangle next to the username for each comment in the thread?

See it?

I dare you to click on it and see what it has in store.

Okay, okay. I had no idea we could "ignore" people. My bad. That should suffice in getting rid of the negative people I have in mind. Thanks ya'll.

I ignore anyone that disagrees with me. Even if they're right. But that's never happened because I'm always right.

I had tears in my eyes a few days ago regarding comments made to me after I posted on a thread. I could not believe how upset I was. I almost deleted MFP.

My only saving grace was some of the posters sent me very vulgar private messages demanding I explain myself as they deserve answers. I was then able to block those users but some of their friends have tried to contact me. Like I can't see their friends list..lol

Pretty sad actually.

I also think you should be able to edit and delete your own posts to forums.

You can edit your own post, but you can't delete it completely. Unless delete the content, by editing it.

Yeah... I was reminded today once more that we live in fallen world, after I made a comment that people should not be posting pictures in their underwear. It is hard to believe that anyone would want to do that, but there are plenty as you know. There is place and time for underwear, and web is not it.

You CAN edit your posts but you are limited to a 1 hour window in which to edit it.
To delete a post after the 1 hour window go to the post and click "report post" you're reporting your own post will allow MFP staff to remove it for you.
