There are some people that just like to lash out at others. Causing some people to leave or just stop posting. I think it would be a good idea to have an ignore feature. So if a person does not want to read what another person is saying they can put that person on their ignore list.
OMG! That is SO true. What a great idea. Me and another person on this forum are having that problem right now...she has said to let her know when it is safe and when the other person goes away, if they ever do, so she can come back on the site without having to deal with this other persons rants and raves. And I came close to leaving this site forever because of the same person. So this idea would REALLY help maintain threads and keep people from being able to bother others...just hit "ignore this person" and BAM!, no more hassles. I LOVE this idea and if no other ideas are put in use, please use this one.
