guessing this is too much work, but i keep hit by quotes from those on ignore. One thick headed d-bag in particular has quoted me about 40x lately and i get notified EVERY time. I think that preventing this would be a popular feature

I can see how that might be useful. Unfortunately, I don’t think the underlying software has the scope to do anything like that.

Joe is correct. Software cannot do this.

Really ? Adding a script that checks if the commentator is in the ignore list before notifying doesn't sound impossible.

Then again I don't know what the debatepolitics.com server is running. Did you ask the dev?

The software isn’t developed especially for this site, it’s generic forum software used by loads of different sites. The company that produces the software could well add the feature you’re suggesting but it’s not in the power of the DP staff to do it.

What Joe said. The software if from vBulletin. We cannot alter that kind of code. The developers at vBulletin would need to "patch" the software to allow this.

At least you know, when they are commenting the wisdom of your words.

Got my hopes up. The block list seems pretty redundant without the ability to block notifications. Is there a way to disable 'all' notifications?

Disable all notifications altogether.

It's better that way.
