Isn't this rather contradictory? Surely by putting people on ignore, aren't you, in a way, limiting *their* freedom to express themselves?
Anyway I see no real purpose for this. We have two types of trouble-makers here - advertisers for companies/porn, who are banned almost instantly, and members who are bad tempered/insolent/ignorant in some way, and these are usually either given a talking to or eventually banned. The admins can take care of both of these so I see no reason to put in an 'ignore' feature; Blueandwhite is right that it would only cause a splintered and fractured community, and make threads a bit confusing.
