Going through the Tools menu and flagging is a daily chore. It would be helpful if to the right of the Close Question button, there was an Ignore button.
The reason for this is that after perusing the flags and I have investigated the flag on whether I will (a) add additional flagging or (b) close the question - I choose to simply ignore it. Well, that question/answer still shows up in my Tools menu until a moderator handles it.
The only way to make it disappear from my Tools menu is to take action. The action I want to take is to tell it to go away, but I can't.
Before choosing Ignore, there should be a confirmation (2nd step) that you wish to actually Ignore. The reason is because I imagine this would be irreversible.
The other option is to make it a one click option (like Approve or Reject in the Edit menu) and then show another tab for Ignored posts.
