I think the /ignore feature may be inevitable at some time. Although
so far we have only had one case (AFAIK) of spamming from
masturbator. It may be possible to wait to see if it becomes
a real problem. Of course, there's nothing wrong with just
having the functionality. Most users will only use it if it
is really necessary. Or to ignore maleteen2000
:-) (sorry, I couldn't help it)
Seriously, one thing that might make the /ignore feature more effective is
if the user gets a personal message when someone /ignore's him/her.
That alone could be a deterrent, to avoid having all those
messages on their screen. Also, if someone chooses to /ignore
me, I would like to know.
Another possibility would be to automatically /ban a user if more
than a certain number of users /ignore him.
