carolinacurious: "Plonk" is a term that I believe JonB coined (Dr. Rock gives a more accurate etomology but I first heard the term from JonB) for the sound that the enter key makes when you hit it with satisfaction at ignoring a troll. Some of the newer people here may not know how to "ignore the posts" (keep them from displaying) of a particular user. When you see that someone has said something so offensive to you that you doubt you will ever want to see what they have to say again you can add them to your ignored users list. How to do it: In the discussion topic, click the name of the user, this will take you to the users profile. Any other way you can find to get to the profile will work just as well. On the profile, near the top of the page, to the right of the user's name there are several options, one of them is IGNORE USER, click it. You're not quite done yet, this will take you to your control panel. The users name should be displayed and at the bottom there should be a button that says: Update Ignored Users, click this button. Enjoy the "plonky feeling", you've become a member of the new "plonk" generation. Wear your "plonkiness" with pride. You're done. That's all there is to it. It's also an easily reversible procedure and you can choose to see any post on an individual basis.
