This idea came to me when responding to a post in The Flood. Since posts there tend to disappear faster than a Tijuana Mama, I thought that I would ask here to see if it has been considered. What might be an interesting b.net feature/enhancement would be a true "ignore" feature. Add a b.net user to your ignore-list, and you don't even see any forum posts created by them. Any replies they post to a thread do not display onto your view of a thread. They just no longer exist for your b.net experience. It might decrease the perceived impact that spammers and flooders can make to a forum. It would also aggravate the beejeebers out of the kiddies too. To know that they are posting their most well considered tidbits like, "ur -blam!-" or "i wuld pwn u in halo" and not a single person who would be annoyed by it is even hearing/seeing them. It could definitely lighten the load on the Mods too. I would imagine that it would involve a processing load on the b.net servers as they wouldn't just "feed up" the current topic's posts, but have to filter them against the requesting user's ignore list. But it could also assist with tracking problem members. For example; if userA is on >75% of all users ignore lists, disable or restrict their account, or send them a warning, etc.
