    And I meant not at all, not even a "this is an ignored user's post, click here to unhide it" stub.

    Can we have those back? It's getting hard to read some threads in these turbulent times.

    I don't mind it really. There are a few people I am grateful to see no trace of.

    Fuck no, this death note of anihilation mechanic is the best thing since Savonarola.

    It get's tiring when I see someone bitch under my post and I have no idea if it's directed at me or some post that disappeared without trace along with the quote.

    I would not mind see him back.

    For the original question why, isn't this the whole point of ignore function?

    Don't be naive. You must stare into a mirror and repeat his name thrice. That is the only way to summon Savonarola.

    Oh, and you must be wearing a gas mask and a latex bodysuit. Otherwise he won't interested.

    At the bottom of any forum thread page there will be text saying 'show ignored content' if the page contains either posts or quoted content from an ignored member.

    Probably another case for "tweaks & ñapas" if the system is incapable or admins prefer small print at the bottom instead of providing properly placed pointers.
    Code:
      /* Ignore hides without great clues, causing inconsistent thread flow, so just fade posts */
      li.message[data-author="Aldo"],
      li.message[data-author="psychoticstorm"],
      li.message[data-author="Red Harvest"],
      li.message[data-author="ijw"]
      {
        opacity: 0.05;
        -webkit-transition: all 0.2s ease-out;
        -moz-transition: all 0.2s ease-out;
        -o-transition: all 0.2s ease-out;
        transition: all 0.2s ease-out;
      }
      li.message[data-author="Aldo"]:hover,
      li.message[data-author="psychoticstorm"]:hover,
      li.message[data-author="Red Harvest"]:hover,
      li.message[data-author="ijw"]:hover
      {
        opacity: 1;
        -webkit-transition: all 0.2s ease-in;
        -moz-transition: all 0.2s ease-in;
        -o-transition: all 0.2s ease-in;
        transition: all 0.2s ease-in;
      }
    
    Just edit/add li.message[data-author=""] lines as needed. Time can also be tweaked if you think it's too fast or slow (0.2 seconds currently for animated fades). Notice the lack of comma for last line just above each {, and check spelling, spaces or case for the text between quotes if one author stays visible.

    If you don't like the flicker (I think I got the "ease" right to mininize it) drop the bottom block with :hover (then transition lines in the top one can be removed too) and just enable/disable the CSS override in full to hide/reveal "ignored" users.
    Code:
      /* Ignore hides without great clues, causing inconsistent thread flow, so just fade posts */
      li.message[data-author="Aldo"],
      li.message[data-author="psychoticstorm"],
      li.message[data-author="Red Harvest"],
      li.message[data-author="ijw"]
      {
        opacity: 0.05;
      }

    Nobody likes a know-it-all, IJW. Except, apparently, Chromedog. It was more fun to think that we had made somebody an unperson. Satisfyingly Orwellian, y'know.

    For those of you seeking your daily dose of "The Lifestyle®" here's Savonarola's Flickr-- and it is, as expected, unquestionably NSFW. https://www.flickr.com/photos/99177049@N03/ I posted the link in another thread, but hot damn, how could I pass up the opportunity to post it again .^^)

    His work is many things, but it is never boring.

    I ignore people based on the avatar. I see the avatar, I don't read the post. Sadly, this forum does not include the avatar in quoted posts.

    the reason is that we read some members comment and not quite understand their reaction, until we notice the post number bottom right is skipping. So we can assume some inflammatory comments were said in that ignored post (depend on context, could be some devil advocate rule lawyering or other nasty post that had a topic get locked). What I did not know until I revealed is that even the quote part itself is completely hidden, which could potentially break apart a post if he was multi quoting and responding to multiple persons, then the response to the masked post will appear to be a respond to the prior quote.

    I see, true makes discussion incoherent.

    I don't want to see the ignored posters' content, just to know that there's something there.

    For example, if you're ignoring user AryanUbermensch1488, he posts a random racist diatribe under your post and someone quotes it and replies "fuck you", you can easily see that the second user's probably replying to someone else and the username will often explain WTF. If there's no hidden post stub, no quote and no trace that anyone said anything in the meantime, all you'd see is "fuck you" below your own post. Which does not help the communication ;)

    Whoa, I needed a better warning for that album. I was not expecting all those beautiful landscape photographs.

    On a forum where we talk about playing games all day?

    Good luck with that. *evil grin*

    It's all Savonarola's fault I started messing with fluorescent paints...

    I got over the use of fluro during the 80s. Overexposure to it and "hypercolor" put me off the entire palette for life.
