Well...hate to have to do it, but just added another person to the Ignore List. Two significant threads totally hijacked with banality.
If you need to do the same, click on the person's name, go to their profile, and you'll see a place to add them to your ignore list.
Just remember that when someone else quotes the person on your Ignore List, the Ignored One's comments will still appear, even though they are not worth reading.
Wanted to give the person a chance, like maybe they were a genius in disguise, but no...what a waste of time.
