Andrew,

Is it possible for you to implement a handy ignore feature on certain accounts? For example if I don't want to read a particular person's posts, can there be some kind of button a push so that I don't have to see what this individual writes? PLEASE!? Thanks.

other than the scroll button (or space bar)?  wouldn't you get confused when people replied to the person you're ignoring?

I would think this would be a good idea at first, but then you'd be completely lost in the discussions.  I think it would be too much trouble to go to.

Not really. I think most people would probably have 1 or 2 people to ignore. I think Andrew should definitely make it as an option.

It might be possible, but surely the effort required to create such a function would be less than the effort required not to read something.  Therefore I would suggest not reading what you don't want to read.
