As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Ignore searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "ignore box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "ignore 2.box" for the latter.

Ignore can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Ignore does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Ignore displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "ignore pointedly", "ignore sarcastically,", and so on. You can also "ignore 18373649" or "ignore toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
