Message 107488 - Posted: 19 Mar 2022, 10:33:31 UTC

BOINC sends me a mail when someone posts in a thread I have subscribed too, that, sadly, includes posts made by people I have added to my twit filter, so I get the mail, click to show the post, and see " This post...".

What is a twit list? You mean the filtered list?
If that's what you meant, do know that most mechanisms on this site were developed independent of each other and are very dumb (as in not intelligent).
So the email notification was there first, the filter users list was added later, but no one added a mechanism to the email list to ignore notifications about filtered users.
If you truly want it, we can put it on the Github Issues list.

Now why are you filtering me? 😜

Hi Jord, it should be added as a bug report then really I suppose. It is simply a nuisance or time waster.

>>> Now why are you filtering me?

You have always struck me as one of the more intelligent people here, filtering you would not be on my actions list.

I found the installer for 7.16.7 (x64) and replaced the current BOINC. That action did not fix the problem, I am still seeing this, on one machine only. I have the task manager window open now, and when it goes into the suspended state, the CPU basically drops to zero. This is very odd.

How does this tie up with the thread title? Were you thinking of a different problem?
