Wow this looks great....now they have to make it so that if you ignore someone's Real Id, they can't message you ever on any of their characters!

I'm crossing my fingers for blizzard to implement an ignore real ID feature.

Well, if you don't accept their friend request in the first place, you won't have to worry!And you can block that ID if you find they aren't realy "friendly" so go all out.I'm just disturbed that they won't allow you to pick and choose which characters I'd like to share. I love my guild and my friends don't get me wrong, but there are times where I'd rather not be disturbed. I just create an alt and start leveling. Later when I hit the 60s or 70s I hit the guild up for an invite, but until then if I'm on that toon I'm in stealth mode. Now, the instant I create another alt, it will be broadcasted to all my friends, and there will be no hiding. Also there are some people who have co-workers and maybe even bosses that play the game and I'm pretty sure they'd rather not let everybody at work know that they are using a sick day to catch up on alt leveling. The publicly available Armory history is bad enough as it is in privacy invasion. For me, I'll probably ditch the whole RealID and ignore any RealID friend requests from any and everybody. No offense.

Sorry I guess I misunderstood your intentions.I'm guessing that even if your block their RealID, they can still message you through the in-game character chat. Having a block RealID forbid any charcters from that battle.net account to message you would certainly cut down on gold farmer spamming, as well as ignoring that clingy person that just won't give up!

That would be awesome for eliminating those annoying Trade Chat trolls who show up every hour with a new alt for me to block... I swear my entire ignore list is nothing but variations on a couple of names. As long as we don't need to know their Real ID to block them, that would work out great.

I can't upvote this enough. Being able to ignore an entire account would be amazing. It's a shame that trade trolls have better regenerative properties than the troll race!

SO. VERY. BAD.All toons, no exception??Sometimes I LIKE to hide on an alt from my in game friends and guild.

Clarification: What I meant to say was have an option in-game to ignore someone's Real ID. You don`t have to know what it is. What this would do is ignore all of the characters on that person's account. This way, if someone is REALLY bugging you, you can ignore all of their characters so they can't just make a new one and whisper you.
