First off, I use phpbb and don't have any ignore feature (though I should probably look into it). For now though, I don't. I have this member who is really starting to annoy everybody. Attention whoring, horrible spelling, etc. He hasn't broken any rules (yet) but probably will soon enough. My forums are a fan forum for a nationally syndicated radio show. The producer of the show is a member and gives me/us some inside info. The person who does the show itself has mentioned us on the air several times and our memberlist skyrockets after a plug. It's a good relationship so far. We got a link on the official site today so our users will only be increasing. But this guy is now emailing the show's host with really retarded stuff and mentioning the forum. If he keeps this up, the host may back off from us and even denounce the whole site as a bunch of idiots because of this one bad apple. If I ban him for being stupid, he could very well try to sabotage the relationship with the host/producer. If I let him stay, he annoys living hell out of everyone and may ruin it anyway. Arrrgh!
