Hi Walt, if I put someone on my "ignore" list, do they know it?

Me again...is it like Facebook in that if you "block" (or in this case "ignore") someone that they can't see what you write either?

They will still be able to see what you write.

lorekauf answered your questions. But I just wanted to tell you that several weeks ago there were some really nasty things here and people jumping on people. For the first time in years I made an Ignore List and I am aware that they can read what I write but I don't have to read what they write.

For the posters I have on 'Ignore', I still see their posts when someone quotes them.

Correct. The only one who knows you've put someone on your ignore list is you. As a caution, you may want to check the list periodically to decide whether you want to leave someone on that list going forward or not.

When I try to find it via my list of all my posts, it's totally gone from my list.

It's like the thread never existed.

What's up ?
I also have always wondered what happened to threads that seem to "disappear"...??? Any answers out there as to why??

Rescinding previous question...after some investigation, I believe I have discovered the answer on my own. I hope the poster who posed the original question has the answer too.
