    I have a problem with the ignore list feature on this forum. I'm forced to block certain morons on the Apple forum, and that's all fine and dandy. However, when another members quotes their post, I can instantly see what they wrote. This annoys me to no end, because not only does it happen all the time, but it totally defeats the purpose of having them on ignore. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Please and thanks. :)

    No, because the ignore list does not have the ability to modify other user posts (the quote is in the other user's post).

    You're just going to have to put up with it.

    I was afraid you'd say that. Does ignore at least stop harassing PM's? Thanks for the help. :)

    I know this is quite an old thread but I have a similar-ish question.
    Actually, there are two points I'd like to enquire about

    Currently, when someone is on your ignore list, if they post in a thread you're subscribed to you still get a notification e-mail - at least if you're set up for immediate notification you do.
    That seems somewhat against the point of an ignore list, if you're still receiving notifications of that person's post.

    Secondly, if you read a thread in which someone on your ignore list has posted, you see a message stating they've posted and you can click to see what they're written.
    Again, that strikes me as rather contrary to the point of an ignore list - you quite often don't just want to ignore what that person has written, you don't want to know what they've posted at all.


    Similarly to Amy, I suspect the answer will be that there's nothing can be done about this as it's just the way the forum software works.
    But if you don't ask, you don't get...
