I've never considered this site a "reading experience"... interesting angle.

I somehow doubt a "make this user invisible to me" feature will get implemented for various reasons.

If someone quotes them, you may see their posts anyway - resulting in annoyance.

Actually, come to think of it, a lot of the annoying and argumentative toss pots seem to have left - only a few of us left now...

I easily skim past that as an opinion( rant even...)

even some technical answers* can only be opinions and what can happen if people can't handle opinions or each other‽

^ I'll say it one more time:
the "Ignore User" option already exists.
I am discussing possible improvements to an existing feature; your replies seem to question the feature as such.

And it has nothing to do with surpressing unwanted opinion.
still, some folks seem to be taking all this strangely personally.

I can't see how knowing that an irritating person has just made a presumably pointless post is a major issue! Incidentally, I have only two people on my ignore list, both of whom have posted in this thread…

yeah well. my feature request still stands, make this more configurable.
jeremy hasn't deemed to respond, not even declining it.
so i guess i'll just try the feature as is now, and see if it gives me a little relief over time...

PS:
the following would also seem a sensible addition to me.

Find More Posts by <poster>

+1 for 'try it'. You may discover, as I did, just knowing xyz is on your ignore list,
will change your emotion of "teased" to 'relieved', knowing xyz is (semi)gone!!!

p.s. An opportunity missed, re:

being that your seven hundred and seventy seventh post and with Slackware I don't think any should have permission to say shut-up so make it a big red push button‽

Always seemed a bit childish to me: "I'm putting you on my ignore list.", like: "I'm not playing with you any more."
EDIT
I'd rather tell the offending (?) person exactly what I think of them, and probably get banned for it.

It is not really true. This forum is free, so anyone can join. And sometimes someone posted several (hundred) messages before locked out - forever.
Yes, ignoring someone is not obviously childish...

Thanks for the feedback. We have no plans to change the Ignore functionality at this time, but do feel free to continue discussing. Based on feedback, we may decide to make changes in the future.

it seems some people here are not able to discuss the issue in a detached manner, taking it strangely personally.
you're not the first one in this thread, brianL.
but i agree, putting someone on my ignore list and saying it out loud to everyone, that would also be childish.

for me it's not only about annoying, or differences in opinion.
i'm getting annoyed easily, and if i put everyone who annoys me or disagrees with me on my ignore list, there wouldn't be much left to do.
but there are some special case where it's simply best to walk away.
i wish i was that magnanimous that i could just do that - walk away, close the tab, scroll over their post - but i'm not.

fwiw, i'm testing the feature now as it is.
i bet some people's tiny egos get all upset now because they think it's surely them...

You're right... being put on ignore by one of the few-thousand-posts LQ Linux "guru" celebs is going to hit some people pretty hard...

My feedback will always be that the feature shouldn't exist.

My ignore list is managed by my eyes, my mind, and my actions.

As it should be. If I'm not mature enough to make a decision about someone's posts, then I should not be participating.

I think I'm on my 5th ignore list.

The last year or two here I have began to utilize ignore less frequently, and decided I wouldn't want Jeremy pissed at me,
and don't shit where I eat, as it were.
What I wanted to avoid is
I didn't want my next response be "the reason" someone is out there talking smack about the/our/my! LQ Community.

I'm eccentric and have impulse control issues.
I value my participation on this site.

Easier to ignore than wind up in the shit.

But that's just me.

Peace.

I can make the decision, but why should I spend time making it over and over again?
