Don't get the whole ignore thing myself.
Beyond the whole "living in a bubble" effect, it seems like admitting that some idiot's words can harm you.

It's a convenience thing. This way I don't start reading two or three sentences in a post before I realize it's yet another post by ShitBasket#1 or TrollCunt#2.

Now I just see "post ignored." Saves me a few seconds per post, times a few hundred idiots on ignore times several times per day of reading popular threads. Do the math. That's time I can play games, homie!


I prefer to do that on a post by post basis. I scan (all) posts pretty quickly for their gist and really rarely read any of them thoroughly unless I plan on replying or it's especially interesting. I also feel that ignoring a troll post packs more of a punch when the troll knows you read it. Seems to me it's the difference between "Ooh I woulda got them had they seen it" and "Damn they didn't take the bait."

But really most of all I'm just against censorship regardless if it's from a position of authority or personally administered. I'd never be able to keep an ignore filter on, I'd always be curious as to what was said. It kills me when Blue removes posts
