I am conflicted.  Gumpy hit my thoughts on the head.  I pretty much just scan the threads from some people but I still value knowing when they post.  So BubbaG gets my thanks for mentioning that we still get to see when the party posts.

I doubt that I will use this feature.  I have no trouble ignoring people if that is want I want to do and I learn stuff from even the most unlikely or unlikable sources even if it is only what a bad example looks like up close.  I have to admit that I was amused by one post to me that stated that they would not read any of my posts but they said that after a long and bitter harangue.  This is a beautiful way, for those so enclined, to have the absolute word.

MODS
I hope the moderators will give some more thought to the feature whereby the PM mail system returns "blocked" mail as undeliverable.  What could anyone fear from this?  A bad PM?  Being up front about your feelings?  We are admonished to do things "in the light".  Or maybe not being able to snicker about  someone's futile efforts till the AH gets the "message"?

Bottom line: I prefer options and I support the Mod staff.

I'm with Gumpy,  I just page on down If I want to ignore something somebody says or I'm having a short attention span kinda day, but i haven't found reason to completely ignore a fellow member all together.

Since the number of people ignoring me matches the number of members on the board,  I can say whatever the heck I want now :o ;D  I might go ahead and post that nudey picture of uncle ned :D
It's all fun and games til someone gets hurt. ;)
