Using Your Ignore List

Hello! You have probably been sent here because you are having problems with someone on IRC. This happens to the best of us, but can be easily dealt by using a feature called IGNORE. It is available on most IRC clients in some way, shape, or form. Please note that on some IRC clients, the ignore function may be more effective than on other clients.

On this site, you can find a step-by-step illustrated guide on how to use ignore on your IRC client!

In all tutorial images, the user being ignored uses the nick Annoying, with the mask Annoying!
