    Would it be possible to configure "New Posts" and similar links to exclude new posts by ignored members? There are at least half a dozen members that I've added to my ignore list. Some of them are very active in various threads that I've subscribed to. Unfortunately, when I click to view the New Posts on these threads, it often takes me to the last page but it shows messages I've already read. I then realize that it isn't showing the numerous ignored posts. Sometimes I click on thread after thread only to find that there aren't really any new messages by non-ignored members.

    I think it would be pretty simple to update the query for New Posts to ignore the ignored posts and function the same as the actual threads which ignore these posts.

    I just look over to the "Last Message" column and if the poster is listed as "Ignored Member", I just skip over that thread. I know I run the risk of missing out on possible new post(s) from non-ignored members that may have been made just prior to the ignored member's post, but I figure I can catch up on the thread later when someone else posts to that thread, which shouldn't be long for many of the very active threads.
