The ignore list is a no brainer...but what does adding someone to the buddy list do? I had someone on my buddy list to test it out, but never noticed anything. I guess I was expecting trumpets to sound when he posted...or something...I didn't notice anything. And, on a buddy/ignore related issue, is there a way to block PMs from individuals without putting them on my ignore list? E.g. I'd like to read everyone's posts, but do not wish to receive PMs from an individual -- is there a way I can do that? Thanks in advance.
