I used to ignore people, I think I had like four or five ignored, but found myself clicking "see only this post" almost every time those people posted because, hey, maybe htis once they posted something relevant or worthwhile and if not, what's lost by me reading it?
A better means of filtering crap I don't want to read is just avoiding forums and threads that generaqlly bore/annoy me.
I'm still sitting on one person ignoring me - been that way for a while, though. I've actually found using the ignore feature (or setting up a threshold) makes going through some forums a lot easier. Granted, I really only check 4 or 5 forums now, but that's not the point.
Oh yeah... I'm sure this question / thingy has been brought up before, but if you've got an ignore threshold, you can see the post if you decide to reply in the thread. Is that intentional?

I wouldn't say it's intentional OR unintentional...just that we didn't (and don't) care enough to add the check to the script, since that's just a quick'n'dirty display of posts for reference anyway.
I really have to question the worth of a thread where the dumbest people on the board expose themselves by comparing the length of their ... "ignored by" numbers, but after three years is anything REALLY shocking anymore?
I won't tell you who's been ignored the most because 1) it's not something you should be shooting for and 2) I'm sure it's someone I've long since banned anyway so no need to dredge up any happy memories by reminding you of them.
TopTenPro, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Your cluelessness is positively STAGGERING. I could say "STOP POSTING. STOP POSTING. STOP POSTING." a ZILLION times and all I'd get out from you is a private message saying "Gosh, do you actually MEAN that?"
(TopTenPro, please do not send me a private message after you read this. Thank you)
In theory, someone could be WOTD every day. It would require a serious malfunction in the random code though, I would think.... We are tracking the WOTD internally, but not taking people out of the pool once they win.
