Before using the "Ignore" feature, you should be aware of a few things: I have a stalker on this board. So, it was suggested that I place him on ignore. That I did. Then one day, I went to respond to a poster that had responded to me. When I clicked on the "Quote - Reply" feature, another posting came up in the middle of the quoted responses. It was my stalker. While I was ignoring him, he posted personal details about me on the board AND he accused me of things that I don't believe in. So, there I am with this guy telling people both on the board and in PMs who I am, where I live AND accusing me of being something I am most assuredly not. THAT is one of the downsides of that feature. And I don't think a lot of people know what the features do and don't do.
