In many cases Ignoring posts is a compromise
which may allow _process of making problems go away_
to be continued in a mild way.
The _known fact_ of the Ignored post by the Author of the topic
is a good reason for the poster
either to modify or delete his original post
or to move the scene of the original post
to his own topic or to another topic
with all links and quotes to it being preserved.
By the way, it's not my responsibility to warn the user
that they might be "ignored".
That's totally the job of the forum owners/administrators
who decide to install this mod on their forum.
Note that the mod gives the same functionality to every user
without no discrimination.
So they have the possibility to ignore others too.
From here only one logical step is needed to realise
that one can be ignored to by others the same way.
It is absolutely not enough.
The forum owners/administrators
especially those who have installed the Ignore mod on their forum
are off-topic here at all.
We speak about the relations between Users only
and only one of which has the formal priority
of the topic Author.
It is an axiom that only the author of the topic
has a presentation concerning what he wants from his topic.
Originally if the topic is not locked for discussion
there can appear annoying Posters similar to me..
who look like trolls on any users opinion,
as andrea has said in her post which I can not ignore.
But there exist the conditions when an annoying poster
can easily agree with the Author's opinion
to stop posting to his topic being ignored by the Author.
And the only way to notice the annoying poster
without the annoying (public) comments of the topic Author
is not just only to ignore a User
but also to provide to a User the possibility
to look at the topic(s) by the Author's (Authors') eyes,
i.e. to observe how Authors' Ignore List works
both for the topic Author and for the Users which are using
the Ignore Mod Option ~Accept Author's glance~
Thus even prior to replying for the first time to any topic
a User can know whether there is any sense to post.
Maybe he would rather open _his_ new topic
and will annoy only those readers
who ~want to be annoyed~ by him.
Additionally this would mean that Users obtain as an option
the possibility to use the accumulated experience
of mutual relations not only between each other
but also between the second (i.e. author)
and third (i.e. other posters) persons.
It will make humans forums more clear
because the discussions will be held
in more congenial groups.. around the spiritual leaders.
