I was curious if there was any plan to implement a "downvote" or "dislike" option in the comments section. On a slightly related note, if there was an additional option to hide posts by particular users. Thanks.

But what does the ignore function do? Does the user know I am ignoring them?

Ideally, I'd like to hide all comments made by certain dumb-dumbs whose polarizing comments (I feel) add no value to any conversation in which they care to partake. I don't want to engage with them - just block out their noise.

If not that, then at least with down-voted comments implementation - those particular polarizing statements could be subsequently be hidden by design (click to reveal).

If you are looking for users to help test, I'd be more than happy to volunteer. Thanks!

I understand that’s exactly how it works. Ignored members won’t know you ignored them. This will only apply to the forum section.

And yes. That’s what we have in mind about downvoting.

Ahh, well if there is an option to expand the ignoring to the articles' comments sections - that would also be beneficial.
