A block function similar to Facebook would be very useful on the Ancestry comments board. This function is called "ignore" on other boards.
There are several trolls on the Ancestry comments board. I would love to be able to block their posts. They could still post their odious comments (one, for example, featured a graphic that accused another of supporting pedophiles) but I would not have to look at them. The posts would be "hidden" from my view.
