I have used the Block and Trash features to block

many posts to keep from being totally ticked off by trolls who continuously use this forum to bash Hillary Clinton. I have entered the Terms Bernie Sanders, BERNIE SANDERS and other variations in the Trash function. However, I continue to get posts the Video and Multimedia Forum. Is there a way to shut these off as well?

1. That won't be completely effective.

If you want to block more than half the posts that bash Hillary Clinton, you have to trash the words "Hillary" and "Clinton."

Either that, or get an ignore list upwards of a couple hundred people.

Or both.

And even then...

2. Or One Could Just Not Open Them

Instead of relying on a robot to exercise judgment.

3. Or that.

But I was trying to talk about the path that the OP chose, and how I suspected s/he hadn't really thought it through.

4. Didn't Mean It To Be Snarky, Iggo

But, i detected an agenda in the OP. So, it was more being snotty about that.

5. That's cool.

I was trying the same thing with my original response, but I think I fell flat.
