I just don't see the point. You can easily ignore them if you want to as is. All the ignoring threads concept would do is foster an echo chamber for specific users. Something GAF does not need to become again.
If anything the ignore user feature (which is enabled) can lead to more echo chamber mentality as people can just ignore people they disagree with and thus have no chance to see their posts and debate them from time to time. Vs. ignoring threads which is generally just getting rid of clutter than the member was never going to post in anyway.
I'd advise just enabling it (assuming it's not a lot of work). Can always turn it off if there is some decrease in debates. But I just don't see it as people aren't going to hide threads they want to read and post in!
