Out of the Blue

Had an Abbott and Costello moment this morning after MrsBlue emailed the sysadmin at work to get a password for the laptop she brought home for the weekend. I've changed his name and adjective to avoid a cybersecurity fail:

MrsBlue: Jim Rocks! Blue: He wrote you back?
MrsBlue: Yup. Blue: What was your password?
MrsBlue: Jim Rocks. Blue: Yeah, he got back to you fast. So what was it?
MrsBlue: Jim Rocks. Blue: Why are you...? Oh. Your password is "Jim Rocks?"
MrsBlue: How many times do you need me to tell you that? Blue: Who's on first?

Rockin' Links: Thanks Ant.
Links: Star Wars Instant Pots invite you to cook out of Chewbacca’s chest. Who's been smoking the instant pot? Thanks Neutronbeam.
Stories: US life expectancy is still on the decline. Here's why. Thanks RedEye9.
Storms threaten Thanksgiving travel across U.S., hundreds of flights canceled in Denver.
Science: 18,000-Year-Old Puppy Found Frozen In Ice Could Be ‘Oldest Confirmed Dog’ Ever. Thanks Neutronbeam.
Media: The Gold Shirt.
We Made Star Wars R-Rated. Thanks Hypothermia.
If you grab a teacher's ankle... Easy way to get kicked in the face.
Follow-up: 1 year later, mystery surrounds China’s gene-edited babies.

And again, if the ignore function prevented those being ignored from seeing the posts of those ignoring them entirely, they wouldn't be able to quote it from other people who quote them and manage to keep trolling. If someone is on a user's ignore list they shouldn't be able to see any posts at all from the person ignoring them.

This is 100% impractical to accomplish, both given the way the forums are coded, and in how users do not need to be logged in in order to view the forums.

The ignore function is to prevent you from seeing specific users' posts if you so choose. If you don't want users to see what you post, then don't post it to a public forum.
