mute individual users
As a user, I would like to be able to ignore the postings from other users. I would like to individually select which users I want to ignore. It should be easy to add/remove users from my ignore list.
We try to establish Mattermost as main Chat platform over @ ReactOS project. IRC was starting to get in the way a bit. But even IRC supported /ignore and /ban commands. All we can do is kick a user from a channel and that is not enough. There are users going on some ppls nerves and these ppl want a ignore feature at least.

You need to implement this, both because it's the correct thing to do and also it will be one more feature you have that Slack does not. The outrage over Slack not having this is immense: https://twitter.com/slackhq/status/767806840524705792?lang=en
Please implement this. This is a simple feature.
This is such an important feature, needs to be implemented asap please!
There a specific person in our org who abuses @channel and mentions directly to me. It's very distracting, but I still need notifications for channels and other coworkers.
Hi Florian - you can disable getting notifications for at-channel mentions globally in Account Settings > Notifications > Words that trigger mentions.

I'm totally with Anonymous. We have a lot of channels where highlighting with @channel should indicate important stuff like a broken system that needs attention. But some people in those channels resist not using @channel even for less important information. I do not want to hide them totally, but I do not want to get a highlight. Even worst: @channel triggers a push notification on my phone and smartwatch telling me, that I have a notification. But it's a channel notification. Removing the @channel highlight globally is also not an option.
=> I wish to have an ignore list where I can add/remove specific users to be excluded from notifications.
More specifically, I would like to mute notifications for a specific user.
Use case: We have a channel where people sometimes post important announcements using @channel, but there is one person who posts a lot of @channel messages that aren't relevant to me. I don't want to mute the whole channel as some of those notifications can be very important, nor do I want to completely hide the posts from this user, as I sometimes interact with him.
Thus, having a setting that allows ignoring global mentions from one user seems like the most straightforward solution to this problem.
there's some garbage you just dont wanna see man

There is someone on my team that frequently posts stuff that makes me cringe. If there was a way that I could mute him, that would be great.
