The interplay between notifications and the ignore function

It is useful to have the facility for an emailed notification when someone comments on a post.

It is also useful to have the facility to ignore certain posters.

However, as it currently stands when someone who is ignored comments on one of my posts I get an emailed notification.

Could you please consider putting on a list the approach whereby if you are ignoring someone you don't get emailed notifications. It is in no way urgent as I know where the delete key is on my keyboard, but it would be quite helpful.

I will ask Stooz who handles the forum software, but I suspect that may be one of its quirks. :?

That seems logical it should work the way you describe, so apologies that it doesn't. Dev on this version is now closed as we have a large upgrade imminent.
However I suspect the behaviour will be the same.

I will put it on my list

This has already been filed as bug with phpBB ... although it doesn't look like they're doing much about it ...
