    I recently found myself using the ignore button. I only have two people on ignore, i have found my internet life on this site a lot easier and enjoyable.

    It works for me,but not when people quote my ignored person's post in their post,that is not often so it is workable.

    Anyway, do you use the ignore feature?

    Do you feel better for it?

    How many do you have on ignore?

    I have nobody on ignore whether they deserve to be or not. I have complete control over who i do and don't interact with without the button so i don't see it as being pointful.

    I have a few people. One of them was someone who kept on interacting with a known troll. I was tired of seeing their posts quoted when I was trying to ignore her, so I put him on ignore too.

    I update mine from time to time: right now there are about seven people on it. FWIW, most people on my Ignore list wind up being banned.

    The Ignore feature here makes life much more pleasurable.

    I've never used it, but I've thought about it.

    I only have one person on ignore and that's because of their incredibly annoying flashing avatar. So that works for me - I don't mind if they're quoted.

    But I do mentally ignore some posters anyway.

    I only have one person on ignore. I try and use it very selectively.

    24, all for homophobic or rightwing troll behavior; it works great at making me feel better about the site

    It's not. I just habitually ignore you.

    because you refuse to see something does not make it go away. Although out of sight out of mind...

    Moderators can't put anyone on ignore. I have a virtual ignore that works great for me unless that person is reported.

    :smile:

    Sorry I gave you a hard time about your past experience. I realize now that you take a risk by opening up here, and were doing so out of a genuine concern that the facts be known about the matter at hand. And I was an insensitive jerk about it, and did not regard your personal business with proper respect.

    Now, don't think that I expect you to reply or even stop ignoring me indefinitely. I'm not trying to get on anyone's good side by apologizing. I simply have realized that you are likely a very nice person, both online and in real life, and I actually feel bad for disrespecting you.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm needed back on planet earth.:dance:

    I have several dozen people on ignore. Most were banned a while ago; I haven't bothered removing them.

    It works pretty well for me.

    There's like three people on my ignore list, they're there because the said or did something which creeped me out in one way or another. People who annoy me in posts I don't put on ignore mostly because I believe in the leaven of malice.
