Ignore Feature Will Not Fix The Issue

#1

It will only fix the symptoms. In fact, it will split the community even more, by creating bubbles, and getting people riled up about being ignored.

Also it’s ironic, since so many of you are pro-free speech.


Guess I am already ignored by the forums. Ha!

Not sure I get it? The ability for someone to speak doesn’t mean others have to listen to them.

I suggest making a rule against passive-aggressively telling another poster you’re going to ignore him.

Just do it, and go about your life. This cuts drama a surprising amount.

That will have the same result of the rule for complaining about flags, nothing. People still complained about flags

Then you infract them, and if they keep doing it, talk to them telling them to cut it out, then if it still keep happening, ban them. 3 strikes.

Never thought that’ll happen. But here we are.

So you’re saying people will have freedom of association?? Great! If only we could have that in the real world.

Nah, I am not against the concept. But it might get overused.

I think it’s personal decision of each user to do it or not. I personally won’t. Unless like spam or something.

This isn’t a L1 thing but a Discourse thing. It’s pretty popular on PHP style forums.

The ignore feature was added in a (very) recent release, I brought it up in a politics-adjacent thread that got pretty heated. It can be disabled, they don’t force it. But I really do hope L1 leaves it on.

I’m indifferent, but I get why some people would want it.

Honestly, the state of the forum has been really stable, but I’m surprised at how people are behaving in the new Lounge and the recent meta threads. Like spoiled brats being told they need to get along with their cousins.
