They have this feature at the Den and it seems to work pretty well.  As Lycanthromancer said, if you quote, it saves on about any confusion you would have had, anyway.  And besides, you always see the place-holder posts in the thread, so if someone responds below that and the response makes no sense, it's not that hard to infer that they might be responding to an ignored post.

If you have so many people on ignore that you can't read the thread, then get out of the thread. :p

Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"

I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.

If the posts appear anyway (as a standard message, but still) there is hardly any point for this. You still need to scroll over it and you can just as well ignore the post in its original form.
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."

It's like simultaneously muting and fastforwarding commercials.  Saves a lot of irritation.

It depends most heavily on Meg, because we have no idea how much trouble it is to setup, in terms of how the board works.
The mind transcends the body.
It's also a little cold because of that.
Please get it a blanket.

I wish I could read your mind,

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

Where would we post such a poll? I only check outside min-max every few months.

I am for it, but confess that as the resident fairness elemental I probably would only use it for a handful. What would be more useful is being able to ignore certain signatures.

I've found that a respectful PM asking to shorten one's signature works often. I think I've done it three times now.

That makes more sense.  I was looking all over in every logical place for this new button, and couldn't find it.
