What happened to the "Ignore User" shortcut?

There used to be a shortcut in the menu accessible by clicking on a user name in a post, to ignore the user.

When did the option disappear?
Was it the last major code update?

Can we get it back?

I'd tell you, but I have you on my ignore list...


Uh... that's a good question. I don't know where it went, but I've not put anyone on my ignore list in probably 5 years...

My guess is when vbulletin started adding more social groups type stuff (friends, etc), they decided to remove "ignore user" from the main user-click menu because otherwise they'd have to add "add friend" and "add contact", and they probably wanted that menu to be leaner and meaner.

It's still only a couple clicks more. Go to their user page and then click on the "User Lists" drop-down menu near the top.

I guess it does help "streamline" the code, if it doesn't have to be cached or transmitted with each page load. ...Especially for something most users don't take advantage of.
