    In the "old" days there was a blocking feature...does "ignore" work the same way?

    Thanks!

    I think ignore hides any threads or replies made by the person you ignored.. Not 100% sure though~

    That's how I understood the old blocking to work. If ignore works the same, that works for me.

    Thanks!

    From what I can see, it filters the member's posts off of your viewing ability. I don't know if they are able to see us if we choose to ignore them.:confused:

    If you ignore me you won't see my posts, but I can see your posts.

    If you are ignoring someone, it hides their posts and it hides conversations they start with you. The person you are ignoring can still see your posts, though.

    Does the person you ignore have any way of knowing that you are ignoring them?

    Unless the person takes that "extra step" to make it publicly known that they are going to begin ignoring you. lol ;)
