in thread Button insecurity

Given that there is a way for me to see what users I have ignored, is there a way to see which users have ignored me?

I don't like this idea because being allowed to see who is ignoring you, would easily allow a malicious monk to sign up for a new account and message you that way. The monk could, if warrantied, be block (more specifically his account removed and ip blocked), but what if the second account was made from a public place (school, library, etc...) and had a different ip address then the original - meaning you wouldn't know the original monk account (unless he/she was stupid enough to sign the msgs from the second account) and he could go to a different public place (or change his ip through software) and create another new account. That's just the first example I came up with.
