That's not nearly the same thing. Any user on the OOo forum can choose 
to ignore the posts by any other user - what happens is that you will 
still see that somebody on your ignore list has posted a message in a 
thread but the content is hidden. All other users who haven't added that 
user to their ignore list will still be able to read his/her post, in 
fact you can choose to view it after all. You're talking about banning 
and preventing somebody from posting in the future.
