For the love of all that is holy. Please implement .mute.

That is all.

Thank you,

I agree. I see the Mute button but it seems easily defeated if the muted person leaves and comes back. User °Indy (not you, Industry) lost his mind during a standard political flame-war, and began psychotically insulting my 2-year-old daughter and my wife. I'm a bit of a troll myself, but, I'm always into the halfhearted generalizations and absurd nonsense, nothing menacing and never threatening... and never aimed at another myther's family or children. So I muted him and he kept rejoining to defeat the mute, if it even worked.

I'm told he also went by "Psalm" and "Judgmental Illness" but whatever the case, he did not let up. A permanent mute would be amazing!

There's no real way to avoid it in rooms that allow guests. The "mute" feature is a client feature FWIW and it could certainly do a better job of maintaining the mute list even if users log out... I'm actually quite surprised that it doesn't do this already. I could understand if it reset when *you* log out, but it shouldn't when other people do.

Server mute aside, you should at least note the issues with the client feature to PM.net if you haven't already.

I second this, and you may recall my private message about this a while back regarding the very same issue, punk. If it means removing all ability to chat in the lobby for guests, then at this point I think that should just be done.

Once I've rolled out the registration changes and so on this is something I can look at. I would still suggest that you get some improvements to it in parallel in the client though as no solution is going to be bulletproof.
