I just don't want to keep getting private messages, I far prefer talking out in the open in the forums. Is there a way to turn off my private messages? I get tired of blocking or reporting and blocking just means I can't see that person's valid forum posts.

I have a few people blocked for PM's, but it doesn't affect me seeing their forum posts.

If you've somehow managed to actually make it do that, I would be interested.

Beardfists' extension (you're using that, right?) in the (right-click to get to) options has a blocking list. Just enter the username(s) and their posts get hidden when using chrome to view the forums. Doesn't hide it for other browsers, though.

I normally use Firefox (with NoScript) for most web browsing, including here at CR.

I use Chrome for my personal G-mail account, and well known sites that require scripting from half a dozen or so domains before they are fully functional.
