Currently if you block/ignore someone it not only hides their content from you, it also hides your content from them. It should not do this, if they do not wish to see your content they have a block/ignore button of their own. If your content is hidden from them it can make it more difficult for them to continue participating in conversations that other people are having on the topic, as they will be missing half the context of that conversation. This allows someone to fragment small sections of the community without the consent of other members by making certain conversations almost entirely opaque to the blocked member. This should not be a possible function of the block/ignore feature, and for this reason I think that that feature should be one way only. If you block/ignore someone you will not see their content, but they will still have full visibility of yours. They will still be able to quote and interact with that content in order to participate in the conversation with other members, but you will not be alerted to or see any of that content (including not being able to see their quotes by other members, just as it works now). This would reduce the power of the ignore button to fragment the community and would reduce the impact on the blocked user.

For those that like not seeing the content of those that have ignored them, there could be an "automatically ignore back" option on the user profile that would maintain the current functionality.

Yet here you are, trying to change how things are dun 'round here.
I never claimed to be a dumb newbie. UI and UX design is kinda a big hobby to me (ok, more like a big giant pain point in my entire life, but that is only because most products suck at it). When I see something that ain't right I gotta say something about it.
 
Click on your username in the user right corner. About halfway down on the right side of the menu is "Watched Content". Click that and all of your watched things are listed with the unread ones in BOLD. Easy-peasy.

That's a good tip . . . too bad I had to log out to see it :rolleyes:
I still luv ewe 😘
 
Oh, well I guess that is a fair point. I don't even want to guess what your daily post count is...

It's not really that important, kind of like the block/ignore thing. :D

Here, console yourself with this animated gif.

She's the chick Chevy Chase banged in that Rodney Dangerfield movie.
 
I'm a big boy. I don't need to put anyone on ignore.
Being a moderator, I probably don't have the choice, but before I was a Mod I had a person on ignore for a short time. Then I realized that even though they were/are a total dip schit, it was easy to slide over any of their posts. Even dip schits make a point once in a while.

I also have a tendency to scroll right past posts that seem to take up half a page, when 5 lines is appropriate...

I have no idea who you would be talking about:s0002:

So, inappropriate language goes after line 5. Got it.
