Putting a user on ignore currently makes it so that you can't see their posts, but they often get quoted and you end up seeing their posts regardless. When you put a user on ignore for reasons of harassment, you just end up in a situation where you see a person harassing you through quotes from others but you can't even report the post because you can't see their post. The system would benefit from making it so that your ignored users are also affected and can't see your posts or topics. The overall benefits of this is a lower amount of bullying on this site and higher satisfaction levels from browsing the boards. Thank you for listening to my ted talk.

Anti-sign. You can't censor what other people view. Also, this has been suggested before:

So you're telling me multiple people want this to happen, all seemingly for reasons of harassment from other users? I think you're only helping my suggestion look better.

If it's what you're posting, you should be able to; at least that is my proposition. There's a reason that you can't see the profile, comments, or posts of someone who has blocked you on social media websites like Facebook.

Fact is, the ignore function doesn't really work as intended. You can't "ignore" someone whose posts get quoted by someone you don't have on ignore. They see your posts, they reply and harass you, that gets quoted, and the ignore function is useless; it just makes it so that you can't report the people insulting you.

I feel like, building walls isn’t the right way to go about dealing with bullies. I think you’re onto something with no longer being able to see their posts even through quotes, but completely blocking out half the site is just going to lead to mass breakdowns in communication.

And ultimately what will it accomplish? The troll will just make a new account to pester you with.

Meh, that one just gets blocked too. If they want to put in the effort of all that all for my one click to shut them down, that's fine by me.
plus, that seems reportable and since mods see IP addresses it might actually help
and it just means more active users on GFAQS which is what the website wants, yeah? Numbers.

Perhaps, but i'd rather just not deal with the person or people in question. There's no other way to go about it, reporting does absolutely nothing since you can often walk that edge of trolling/flaming multiple times and it won't count as harassment unless you go over that edge multiple times.

Way I see it is that the ignore function simply doesn't fulfill it's intended purpose. It's actually worse than simply not having whoever off ignore in order to report them. Something needs to be done, even if my suggestion will "never happen".

I don't really see how it could be done though. even a method in which anything after a Someguy posted... before the next cite would lead to unfortunate losses in posts.

Other sites with the function seem to do just fine.

This is not going to happen, period. You people need to grow the f*** up and learn how to deal with trolls ffs.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

You need to re-evaluate your definitions if you actually think that's a flame.

You seem way too thin skinned for this site.

If you really need that extreme of an ignore function then maybe this site isn't for you.

Besides, with the way the system is, they'd need to overhaul the site coding to implement what you want anyway.

Wanna know how I know you didn't research first?
