It would be nice if the ignore feature was extended to cover the comments section of news post (if it isn't already...I don't think that it is).

Just to add, if you post a comment and a person on your ignore list posts before you then their comment will show up unblocked. And I agree that it should be easier to add people to the ignore list, ideally as an option when you hover over somebody's username.

This is not true if you use the script I proved.

Even if you choose to block a user. It never really blocks them. They still show up in the thread, it just collapses what they say. You can still drop down and see what they said. Which is great for me, because while a lot of people probably block me, they still see my name. Thus they can't resist dropping it down and seeing what I said even though I'm technically "blocked"

When I think of blocked or ignored I think of not even showing up.

This is a factual statement when that script is used.
I really do not like to repeat my self but the script I used blocks the user 100% there is no way to view the ignored post unless you go into your CP and take the user off the ignore list.

Personally I like the way you're informed if somebody on your ignore list replies to a comment you made, as I often check them and report any personal attacks to moderators. The way I see it the ignore list is more of a reminder to me not to respond to such people.

Not according to the test I just did - could still click to view the post.

Can the people we dont like just get banned? :p


I think some of them should be. Most of the people on my ignore list are there because they repeatedly resort to personal attacks, they follow me from topic to topic just to insult me and are incredibly rude and offensive. I don't add people to my ignore list simply because I disagree with them, as I don't want to shelter myself from opinions I disagree with - I like my opinions and beliefs to be challenged.

Look who the last person before me that posted. He is on my ignore list, then look at the image. Do you see a post between mine and yours????

Now to prove this even further I would have to use camstudio and it is not worth my time. The script works with Firefox. Use , don't use it , I do not care. I did not write it.


@-moz-document domain("www.neowin.net") {

div[class="post_ignore"]{display: none !important;}

}

It seems that :shiftyninja: Adblockplus can also block the post out fully.

Just ignore the person, then when you next see the "this post was hidden" text, just create a filter for it, and bingo.

The only thing noticeable is the thicker line between posts.

^ I hear you on that.

Sad to have to block so many people.

Might be interesting to see an Open list of the top 50 Ignored. :laugh:
