in reply to Button insecurity

To answer your points:
1) This would produce quite a few pop-ups for those that actually use ignore, and doesnt sound very practical to me. There is a way of finding out who you are ignoring: ignored users, so if you think you're ignoring someone you don't want to, look there.
2) You've misunderstood the problem here. Nobody steals your cookie, or logs in as you. You clicking the link causes *your* browser to send a query to PerlMonks requesting it to do something for you.
3) Sorry, but I don't agree. If people want to present their problems/complaints in a sensible and non-whiny, non-attacking manner, like this one, we'll listen. Else, it just looks like blowing off steam, and will be ignored.

My reccommendation: Think before you post, think about your readers, and what you want them to think of you. How would you perceive your posts?
