This.To be honest I wish a few more people would use ignore rather than continually argue.
I've only ever put two people on ignore and they'll stay there (I think one has been banned judging by his profile).
I try to respond to all points raised in response to my posts in political threads but one person always tries to derail discussions and it's a lot easier to ignore than waste time responding to someone that isn't actually interested.
Outside of the politics/brexit/covid I really don't mind and I wouldn't block anyone for football differences (well, maybe a Mackem).
The obviously daft/parody/comedy accounts can be ignored in the good old fashion if they become tedious.
