Something changed with /ignore...

    Not long ago, if user A had user B on ignore, then user B would not see posts user A made.

    Easy to handle.

    But now, User B can see all posts user A types. So user B is typing to a ghost. User B is wasting time.

    How about this...In any thread, User B can see an indication that he/she is being ignored by User A, so User B does not waste time typing to User A?

    How often are you user B in your scenario?

    He can be C too...

    Here's an interesting example.

    I see @virtusa ,responding to my post through the export tool. That is how I know he is there, because he has me on ignore/block. So how did he see my thread? Did he /unignore me read my message and respond to it? Is he truly User C, as he said?

    There is no way to know unless User B can see a list of all the User As.
    • I have put everybody on Ignore/Block.
    • It took me a few months but it is worth it.
    • The only posts I see are mine and I find these forums much more informative now.

    But you have one problem: if you ever get bored from yourself, you cannot block yourself...

    you took months to put 100 000+ people on ignore/block?

    That is interesting.
    But actually, the better solution is not to use the forum.

    whatever you want to write, go write it and just save it into your PC.

    Not true. A placing B on ignore removes B’s text, but the handle and post number will show. B can see all of A’s posts unless they are also on ignore/block.

    ‘A blocking B makes B disappear. B can not see A.
