Don't know if people are aware but another option you can take is to add usernames of members whose posts continually irritate you to your ignore list
. Just click on their user name, go to "view public profile", and click "Add xxxxx to Your Ignore List". You will still see that they replied to posts but their reply is hidden from you unless you remove them from your ignore list. I use this function a lot on another message board to help maintain a safe blood pressure level.
Note that you cannot ignore moderators, only regular user names.
Hope that helps your viewing of the message boards. Obviously if a post is a problem and you see it you should report it, but this way you might not have to read it in the first place.
