What does it mean to "ignore" a person? As in the choice to report, ignore, follow a person. Is it like a block? Can you block people so they cannot communicate with you or see your stuff?

Ignoring another user blocks you from being able to see their posts, threads, and private messages. It does not block their ability to see your content.

The idea is that since you can't see their posts, you'll stop responding to them and they will eventually give up trying to harass you; basically a 'don't feed the trolls' philosophy.

Yea. My ex just ended up on here. Its a free world and a free forum. Weve caused trauma to eachother and frankly i want nothing to do with her and im pissed/confused as to why shes even here. So trying to avoid her like the plague now. Shes spitefull and vindictive, and i dont take things lightly so i really dont need that shit right now. Im an open book but this is as far as i want that hell to be brought up in this environment. Its unhealthy for me and im trying to move forward. Were just hate now.

Cool. Thanks matt. I could have asked admins directly but didnt want to bother anyone and figured others might be as unsure as i. Cheers.

It's important to understand that if you are being harassed by another user that is against the rules and you should let us know so we can take action. If it hasn't gone that far yet, I would suggest using the ignore function first.

No contact either way has been made and i just want to keep it that way. I pushed ignore as soon as i saw it. Thought id figure out what it meant after. Haaa

that really sucks your hurting. i know how you feel tho. i was dating a guy, but we had broken up a few weeks before a wedding that we were both part of, he was a groomsman i was a bridesmaid. it was hard to see him with his new girlfriend that he left me for at the wedding. but youll get past this. itll make you a stronger person (emotionally) just dont build walls of hate aroound your heart. be open to love and be open to peace.

For sure. One of my mantras after all this was that i have to choose love over hate. This world can widdle us down. Ive been a bastard and a hatefull maniac at times in my life. Im aware of it and admit it. But ive also always been aware that others opinions or misconceptions of me dont mean shit. So i continue on forward trying to be the best i can while never forgetting the shit ive learned (good and bad).

Damn, that sounds like an awkward upsetting situation. The guys clearly a prick. The only reason to put someone through that is to hurt them with malicious intent. Anyway.... fuck his drama. Im over it :p

well he and i eventually did get back together. he pretty much realized that she was going to keep doing drugs and keep dragging him into dark places. he saw i was always going to be there for him. we are dating now. im still guarded against him. this is the last time im going to date him. i hope it lasts forever. i am happy with him, i talk to him about our issues. i build him up and he dose the same for me. we go out with no money, and we make money. we knock out our court goals and we get shit done

The downside with ignoring someone is they can make posts that lie about you and you won't be able to see your accuser to make a defense.

What if I had a user ignored, but they changed their username and now I have to see their posts again. When I attempt to ignore, it says I already am (but it’s not working). Any ideas? Thanks!

hmm... if you ignore a user and they change their name, it *should* still respect the fact that you set them to ignore. if it's not, there's something not working correctly. can you tell me the user name of the person you're trying to ignore? if so, i can check and see to make sure the system is working correctly. thanks!
