User Hide/Block Feature?

Many online communities have a feature that allow a user to choose to hide another user's posts and to have them removed from notifications of follow ups on topics they are "watching". This makes the forum more usable as the reader is not interrupted by an inappropriately high number posts from a single user that they deem to be of little value or are regularly off-topic and often outright incorrect. While there is value in providing accurate information in the general case, there is no value in feeding a troll.

If this feature is already available on these forums, how do I use it? If not and it is available in the underlying software, would it be possible to activate it?

This feature is available:

Preferences -> Notifications -> Users
