I can't see any real problem with this request, we'll just get a bit of chat with minis going to confirm that it's not going to inhibit their ability moderate. But it sounds reasonable.
I almost used ignore once, but I couldn't.
I found out that one of the people I have on ignore is permabanned. I squeaked with delight.
I'm still shown as being on Sidhe's ignore list.
Having discussed this proposal, it will go on the dev list, but it will be low priority given that it may end up being quite complicated to sort this and there are lots of other things to be fixed and new features to be implemented that are higher priority.
I don't see the point of the ignore function, to be honest.
It's on the list, so we have faith that it shall be done!
Never ignored, but I can see the appeal of this.
