Only if you "Show all" to see who gave you what emoji. Then they all show up.
Probably also if you select, Show ignored content, at the bottom of the page.

No, you are right, and I was wrong about that. The reaction shows, regardless... .(n):geek::)

I don’t ever put anyone on ignore. Free speech is more important than my opinion.
I don't have no ideals behind my decision. I just don't care enough about stuff that is said on an online forum to bother putting anybody on ignore.

All the people here whose opinion I would care about don't say stuff that make me want to put them on ignore. The people that say such stuff don't really matter enough to me to go to the trouble of figuring out where the ignore button is.

Thing is, tourist is not really an objectionable, controversial guy. You have to be really uptight and argumentative to red x him.

Reasons I ignore:
1. Intentionally misrepresenting what I have said.
2. Nonsense conspiracies (e.g. flat earth)
3. Signature pics that take up the entire screen.

Yes, it is frustrating, sad that someone still puts red X's when they know you are ignoring them. A block feature would be nice, sad thing for a Christian Chat site but there are situations where is could be useful.

My experience has been that the flow of the dialogue gets interrupted so one ends up reading the post even if on ignore and are drawn back in.

Sometimes if you ask nicely they will put you on ignore, it helps to have it both ways.
Yes a block feature would save the poor mods a lot of stress too. Some poster posting threads that annoy you? Then just ignore them, and Scroll Thee Fastly On, Skippy.

Try to ignore people. I always think by playing the red cross game back or blocking them shows that they have got to you. You are always going to get horrible people. Ignore them they will soon get bored and jog on 😊

I find the red x boring. I’d rather have people express their opinions in words.

I never put anyone on ignore because I think it’s important to see what people think and say.

Some people have a lot of tenacity, so sometimes it works to ignore, sometimes it does not and it just makes it worse, in real life I have learned narcissists hate being ignored.

Having said that they will often find another victim but until they do they may persist.

Off topic I guess. Hopefully what you state tends to be the most common result.

I'm the same, i want to see everything and don't want to isolate myself into a bubble.

But I have to confess.
I have put only one person on ignore since i've been on this site. I did that about 2 years ago, and it's not because what he says, but what he doesn't say.
I think he has some mental issues or something, or maybe not. Maybe it's how i see it.
Either way, i don't want to see the equivalent of garbage or word salad in the screen because it's meaningless to me.
So, it's better to not read it.
