This is exactly what I dislike about this feature. Those who have ignores visible are now subject to being labeled as "jerks" by the rest of the community. But we already know that some users randomly received ignores when the mods were testing the feature, and others with no known conflicts have also found themselves being ignored. And what about those who have received "retaliatory ignores" for putting another on ignore? Does that make any of these people bad people? Hardly. A person's ignores (or lack thereof) do not necessarily say anything about their character or their likeability. It just means that someone, at some point, clicked a button under someone else's name.


Well said, my thoughts to the point.

Points well sated. As I said earlier today, the feature as it stands right now is unacceptable. If it can't be modified to meet our concerns, it will be removed. Give me a day or two to sort it out. I will let everyone know what the end result will be.

We can see who is being ignored.  We've always been able to.  When I click on Dr. Phibes or Dr. G's profiles, I can see how many they are talking about.  It's always been like that.

This hairball has now been corrected. Members will no longer be able to see how many members are ignoring them and/or others. It is now hidden information. As it should be too.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we addressed this issue.

My ignored status of 1 member kept disappearing and reappearing anyway.  Anyone who wants to ignore me can now feel free to, as i wont have to know you're doing it, and it won't be broadcast to the entire world. ;D ;D ;)

Nothing worse than a member who waffles on ignoring someone else. You either are going to ignore, or not ignore at all. Selective ignoring is so high maintenance.  :D
