I pretty sure this has been suggested before, but I think there should be an option that prevents one from seeing the forum posts of a member. Its a good compromise on the issue of censorship, and I think it would reduce the some of the drama that goes on here. Its a worthwhile investment of time to make this a part of the website.

I saw a really good Ted talk about how the Internet let's us create our own censorship bubbles that filter out views and opinions we don't agree with. I think it's dangerous to ignore people just because they are an ideological thorn in your side.

Interesting that you're for this when previously you were against the plugin that blocked out izbo. In fact, he is literally the ONLY member who I would think should ever be blocked--and that was only because of his abusive demeanor.

Actually, I am censoring her because she is extremely crass. Socialpinko and I disagree on many things, and jimtimmy and I despise each other, but I am not censoring either of them.
