Plus, it would give some people a clue that they're being ignored, and maybe folks would act more civil towards each other.
Well, that's the argument for SuperIgnore to exist, which is why I created it.
But if everyone could turn it on at any time, imagine this scenario. Bender pisses off Doombug, so Doombug puts him on SuperIgnore. Bender complains, and his entire clique puts Doombug on SuperIgnore. Doombug complains, a 20 page lutz thread develops, and by the end, everyone has everyone else on SuperIgnore. This would happen in two days, tops.
So, it being a powerful tool, you just have to break the glass to use it in case of emergency, rather than having the button to push at will.
