I think using the ignore feature would be a little "weird" if the ignored person happened to post something of relevance in a thread you were following.... or even something of no relevance, but other posters were replying to what they said. Then the person who used the ignore button would be the one in the dark. Just saying.....

Yes, but the person who used the ignore feature chose to use it so they are aware that these situations might occur and it is within their power to turn the option on or off.

I realize that. It just seems simpler to bypass reading the post in case you want to quickly refer back to it.
Even simpler to turn the ignore button into an alien abduction button. Get rid of the offending member posts altogether (lol)

And that is the great thing about having options. For you it seems easier to do ABC so that is what you do. For the next person your way might seem much more difficult so they have other options. And for the aliens, we all know they like to do XYZ so they can do it their way and be happy. Everyone wins.

I visit another forum and do use the ignore button on several indivuduals. Since I started doing that I find it more enjoyable. Also, you can see if they have responded to something you are interested in and you can un-ignore them just for the one response. By the way, I only ignore the ones who consistently post their personal political views in an offensive manner (at least to me) This forum is much more friendly and sticks with food, fun and even who makes their bed, I love it.

To unignore for just the one response seems like a nice option to an option, Barbara.

Yes, it actually works well, you can tell by the topic if it's something you're interested in and not a "hot topic"
