    How does it work?

    Is it like facebook blocking? Does the ignored individual have access to threads I've started for example?
    Faq doesn't seem to cover that

    Thanks

    Yes, ignored users can view and post in your threads. You just won't see their responses. Their posts will look like this:

    The end justifies the means

    Being ignored instantaneously by the top commenter on MR must be an honor in its own right :D

    Why would you want to ignore anyone?

    Let's get rid of the ignore function and bring back the downvotes!
    I am excellent at getting those. :cool:

    Well, I contemplated one particular entity, but the functionality of the ignore list addition does not meet my blocking needs :)

    I don't block because of the reason you mentioned. They are not really blocked since you can still see that "this message is hidden" business on the screen. If I block someone I don't want to know they exist. I realize with my method one would still see a blocked persons quotes if they were posted, but a full block would still eliminate most of the info.

    Sounds like someone needs a hug. :p

    Kind of annoying you still still see their quotes in other peoples replies though.
