The ignore function makes me want to read their post even more

    I'm wondering if there is a better solution to the ignore list available, its quite possible that I am being an idiot and I just don't know how to use the forum...

    Right now when I add a user to the ignore list I see this when they post.

    This is worse than just a normal post, it makes me want to read it more.

    Shouldn't the ignore button just hide them from existence completely? I don't care if they can see my shit but when I add someone to the ignore list in a perfect world it would be like they no longer exist. They are no longer on the forum, they have fucked off to WF or some other shit hole and left us to get on with our lives.

    Is this option available?

    Thank you

    I ignored a guy the other day just to piss him off as he was sending me nonsense/abusive PM's and I wanted the last word, as I knew it would send him into meltdown.
    Gotta push those buttons.
    After 15 mins I knew he would have tried to PM me, and it would have failed and he would be spitting mad, I unblocked him just so I could continue to read his Public posts.
    People might think me an immature child, but I prefer term wanker.

    I like that.

    In this case I honestly couldn't give a crap about their opinion of me, I reached out to him and apologised for being a little rough on him and everything... he then just started to PM me shit about getting 10,000 pages indexed in google and following me around the forum again questioning everything I post.

    People that act like this do my fucking head in and I just don't have time for that. If I can't do this on the forum I'll just write a chrome extension that hides them for me.

    Huh, I didn't realise that you still saw the post but not the content. Yep, that'd drive me mad with curiosity too. Don't think it's something we can change immediately, but I'll see if it's a possibility for the new platform.

    Thank you Apricot, I was hoping I was being a retard and there was an extra button or something. I'll see if I can block them out of my view with adblock or something...

    If its on the new platform that would be cool also. :)

    Thanks
