    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    Do you NEED to.....No. I didn't and have not had a problem along with many others. Is it recommended.....Yes!
