Doesn't work. Big database query errors and nothing relevant. What did you see there before the website broke?
While I can't see your ignore list, I'd be willing to bet the patron saint of the ignore list is on it. FWIW, I've followed this with interest due to curiosity and a couple acquaintances that have IPs, and haven't doubted the veracity of the "they are working through it" stuff. I'm betting they're too busy w lawyers to worry about a few people not likely to buy their boats anyway kvetching about this on Sailnet.
I would say that any manufacturer cares what people say about their brand. Their real customers run searches on Google and the responses show up. Unfortunately that means having to deal with explaining the forum ecosystem and that some posts are from people who don't know what they are talking about. That can be inconvenient.
That isn't to say that everything needs to be daffodils and butterflies. Well-grounded discussions between credible contributors who differ on substance is good and helps everyone.
Regarding the ignore list it would be interesting to be able to see at least the ignore count for any member. Who ignores me? Beats me. I can see who quotes me (unfortunately including people on my ignore list) but not who ignores me. Of greater value would be to see what users are ignored most often. It would be like academic peer review, a sort of "cut and paste sailor" vote count.
I don't think my ignore list is very big. Of nine, six have been permanently banned or drifted off on their own. The ignore list is a service of SN (and other fora) to help keep things civil.
Some SNers have questions. Some have answers. Some have some of both. Those are characteristics of a healthy community. Posters who make things up, cut and paste from sources they don't understand and apply out of context, and make disagreements personal are a virus. Posters who look at their post and ask themselves "how will this help" make the community better. Those who gleefully think "this will be fun!" and punch Submit are part of the problem.
