Ignore (as currently implemented) does not work. A malicious user knows very well that they will be quoted by other users, and also knows they have free reign to derail any thread that the ignoring party starts and/or posts in.
Follow the protocol that social media platforms have adopted by implementing a blocking ignore that not only prevents you from seeing their posts but that also prevents them from seeing yours!! The current method is outdated and highly flawed.
Someone proposed this idea 7 years ago and PT Support Desk shot it down despite it getting 146 votes. Their reasoning at the time was flawed.
The response from 7 years ago used flawed reasoning. If PTer B creates a new account (let's call it PTer C) then PTer A need merely block that account as well. As for saying PTer B can log out to read what PTer A posted they're still blocked from replying to the posts (which is the root of the problem: harassment).
This would fix a seriously broken system where malicious users can (and do) harass other PTers.
