zadoz...have to give you credit for accepting the possibility that there may be a few or more pumpers and "overly optimistic folks". An understatement to say the least. As SH customer support so eloquently pointed out, the ignore function should suffice, so why doesn't it? Simply because it doesn't work for those who have certain motives. It's the only logical explanation. It's not that certain people don't want to see someone's comments, it's that they don't want ANYONE seeing their comments. And why would that be? Again, there's only one plausible reason. To suppress the truth or opposing views. That's precisely what's going on here. I didn't get rid of anyone. They supposedly left for a private board by choice, but we know better. They haven't gone at all. Let's not be so naive.
