I would like to define a function that shuts up all warnings.

My first go was:

Silence[x_] := Block[{}, Quiet[x]];

I have also tried working with pure functions:

Silence = Block[{},Quiet[#]]&;

But neither of them seem to work when applied as a function (Silence), whereas they work when I write them down explicitly. Why?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    $\begingroup$ Specifically speaking, just use Attributes@Silence = HoldAll; Silence[x_] := Block[{}, Quiet[x]]; or Silence = Function[x, Block[{}, Quiet[x]], HoldAll]; :) $\endgroup$ – xzczd Jan 3 '17 at 12:54
