This code is based on Simon Pitfield's ignore suite (see this thread), which seems to have been abandoned about two years ago. I built on this code because IMO Simon's code has superior functionality when compared to the two other MODs that are currently in development (Simple Ignore 1.4.0 and User Ignore 1.2.0).
I started using this MOD when Simon had it at version 1.0.4. At the time, it was very buggy and some bugs were fixed - and announced here - before it was abandoned at v1.0.6. For those who are interested in what's changed between the abandoned v1.0.6 and this v1.1.0, this is right out of the version history in the MOD header.

It passes basic MOD validation. Easymod says that it's not EM-compliant but I have no idea why and this has installed via Easymod since 2.0.18 without trouble (back to 2.0.11 with minor tweaks). This code has been in use for about 18 months now - ~1000 users, 100-150 posts per day - with nary a squawk since the search bug was fixed about a year ago.
