That would depend upon whether or not ignoring something can be a passive act, or if it is necessarily conscious.

ignore
/ɪɡˈnɔː/
verb

refuse to take notice of or acknowledge; disregard intentionally

This definition suggests the latter.  But another definition is given simply as 'fail to consider', which suggests the opposite.  I'm guessing that the word derives from 'ignorant', and you can remain ignorant of something whether you're aware of it or not.

The full definition seems to imply both can be used, although it is a tad ambiguous.

In this context, I'd say it would have to be a conscious decision. After all, 'Ignore this' is a command. Which sort of brings us full circle. What if Donkey had used said command on a forum where he is the only member and nobody else would see it?

Although it may look like a command, it was more a suggestion...

A bit like Gerald Stilton on the old Trust forum.... where Stalk Stalk used to do his work before Ells.

Are SRK and Gerald Stilton related ?
